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!

See more after the cut!
