ADVICE FOR ENGAGED LGBTQ+ COUPLES


Your day will be perfect, even if there are slight annoyances or changes that you did not expect. The day is all about the two of you and you will not repeat this day. Be present, enjoy everyone, and laugh and cry.

ADVICE FOR VENDORS WORKING WITH LGBTQ+ COUPLES


Simply treat the couple with respect and care. Do not be afraid to ask the couple if you do not understand anything about their wants and needs. All couples have an idea of what they want and open communication brings happy results.

WHO WALKED DOWN THE AISLE AND WITH WHOM? OR WHO (IF ANYONE) WAITED AT THE FRONT?


Both Christian and Cliff walked down the aisle with their mothers.

WHAT CHALLENGES DID YOU FACE AS AN LGBTQ+ COUPLE PLANNING YOUR WEDDING?


None really. We used vendors and companies that were accommodating. Just the distance from Ohio to California was the greatest challenge for planning.

DID YOU ENCOUNTER ANY SURPRISES AS AN LGBTQ+ COUPLE PLANNING YOUR WEDDING?


Just that the staff and vendors we used were so loving and supportive. Everyone went above and beyond to be sure we felt it was our special day.
