Cozy and Intimate Queer Wedding Inspiration (9)

We’re loving this gorgeous, rustic styled shoot, brought to us by Liv Lyszyk Photography, based in Grand Rapids, MI. Here’s Liv to tell us more:

I was so inspired by the look of Michigan Pines and wanted to create an LGBTQ shoot featuring a non binary couple. As a queer woman I often look for couples that I resonate with in publications. I haven’t found too many non binary people featured and I wanted to showcase Samantha and Brianna’s love. Drawing inspiration from vintage plaid blankets I chose a warm color scheme to go with the cozy vibes I wanted to capture.

Marrage License

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Cathy’s Elegant Events, exudes warmth and fun! We just love the retro style and the unique, personal touches. Here’s Cathy to tell us more:

This couple was one of my favorites from last year. These two (a gay wedding) live in Brooklyn but wanted to get married at the bride’s mother’s home in the Catskills. They were so concerned that the house wouldn’t be beautiful enough for a great wedding but it was absolutely perfect.

Josh and Jerad's Posh Winter Wedding (5)

Josh and Jerad's Posh Winter Wedding (6)

This elegant and cozy winter wedding comes to us from Alliey of Sash & Bow based in Chicago, IL. Enjoy!

Josh and Jerad had been dating for 9 years. In the fall of 2014 they decided that January 8, 2015 was going to be their wedding day as that was their anniversary! Quick planning was in order to pull off a wedding within 2 months, however, with all their closest friends and themselves as wedding professionals it was doable :-) The couple wanted to create something amazing that they haven’t been able to do at other weddings – they own buds n bloom design studio. They decided on having a small, intimate winter scene with a lot of candle light, warmth, bling and blooms! The result was breathtaking – guests were indulged in amazing food, picturesque decor and flowers and the love of two amazing men.

Two Brides Are Better Than One (10)

Two Brides Are Better Than One (11)

Today’s real wedding comes to us from Courtney of After the Engagement based in San Diego, CA! Here’s Courtney to tell us more about the wedding and the happy couple:

The story behind Mel and Tasha’s wedding is that the wedding was fully donated to them except for hair and limo! A bunch of vendors here in San Diego got together when same sex marriage was legalized in CA and decided to host a contest for a free wedding for 50 people. Entrants had to send a photo and essay about why they should win, and Mel and Tasha won – they were truly a dream to work with, and we actually just celebrated their one year anniversary of the wedding!
