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.

While planning countless same-sex weddings over the last eight years, Bernadette Coveney Smith of 14 Stories repeatedly saw masculine-minded brides struggle with finding the perfect suit or tux for their wedding. Department store options often weren’t formal enough, custom was expensive and shopping in men’s stores meant awkward conversations, possible discrimination and ill-fitting suits. Unfortunately, her background of creating enchanting wedding scenes did not translate into fashion design, so she continued to help guide her brides through the strenuous task of finding the perfect outfit amongst the limited choices.
That is until she was introduced to bridal designer Marialexandra, and soon after, a partnership was formed with the goal to create a collection based on traditional classic masculine garments, but with the female and gender-noncomforming body in mind.
Marialexandra immediately began interviewing former clients of Smith’s and other butch, queer, trans and androgynous women, as well as trans men, in order to tailor to their precise needs. The result is Fourteen, a fashion-forward clothing line of ready-to-wear dress shirts, jackets, vests, pants and ties that we can’t wait to see at the altar.
"While not a glamorous wedding, it really reflected who we are: a little tailored for Holly and little girly for me. And the most important people in the world to us were there to share it with us."Real Weddings 2867

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 2802
