elegant and lively wedding reception

two happy grooms on their wedding day

This lavishly elegant and festive wedding comes to us from Deborah Elias of Elias Events Weddings, based in Houston, TX! Here’s Deborah to tel us more:

It was John Dascoulias who introduced the idea of the couple getting married, especially once the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide in June 2015, but Clifford Pugh resisted. After all, they were committed to each other and no piece of paper would change that. But after Clifford was injured in a motorcycle accident, they decided it was the best thing to do to alleviate concerns like health benefits and to frankly just become legally married.

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.
