Marriage equality on the rise in the deep south!
It's official: Arizona is No. 31 for states with marriage equality!
The world is finally changing its ways on gay rights and it’s about time.
A federal judge ruled Sunday that Alaska’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional, paving the way for same-sex couples to begin marrying in the state for the first time.
Huge news for 11 states
The bride describing her wedding dress as a ball gown with a full skirt, maybe beading and embroidery embellishments and a veil with a long train topped with a tiara is definitely a princess bride. This season designers may have showed more mermaids and sheaths than voluminous skirts, but when they did include a ball gown it was a show stopper.
As for color, white and ivory still reigned as the number one hue but red ball gowns made a big splash as the finale dresses at both Oscar de la Renta and Romona Keveza. And Vera Wang’s Spring 2013 collection was all in shades of red. If you want a little bit of color, check out Alfred Angelo’s black and white gown below.

My partner and I have a unique engagement story. We both identify as queer and my partner, Owen, is transgender. Although we often subscribe to what "men and women" do in relationship, we wanted to be sure that we were being very intentional about how to move forward together and which traditions felt good to us.Engagement 2798
