Same-sex weddings – or weddings, as they're now called – are … well, they're amazing. I'm maybe biased because my beautiful wife and I had a truly epic wedding. It's just … the fight was so hard won, and the victory is still so recent, I want to share some ideas for a magical, unique, joyous ceremony filled with love and laughter.
1. Draped in Love and Rainbows
See, if you're marrying your partner, you don't have to make it a “gay wedding.” However, if you want to celebrate the fact that love is love, even subtly, photo ops are excellent for that.
2. Glitter Bomb
Because this is your moment to explode with happiness. Take it.
3. Mrs & Mrs
Or Mr. and Mr., of course. I just think little touches like these are precious.
4. Rustic Chic
This is a great idea for any wedding. The rustic look is still trendy, but for a good reason – this is so charming!
5. Support in the Truest Sense
If you can incorporate something that's important to your partner – a cultural touch, a ritual, a ceremonial detail – do it. Share it.
6. Make Time for Candid Photos
You will be so glad you did. These are the moments that capture the real magic of your marriage.
7. Evening Romance
'kay, so I have a thing for the rustic vibe. Tell me this isn't the most romantic shot, though.
8. Opt for an Adorable Guest Book
Oh, my god. I wish Heather and I had gotten one of these. We didn't even do a guest book, to be honest.
9. Over the Bridge
In the event that you want an outdoor wedding and you have access to a venue like this, grab it. Grab it right now.
10. Strike a Pose
Everything about this is beyond gorgeous. The best part, though? The happiness in their smiles as they look at each other. They are so in love!
11. Ruffled Tablecloths
Why? Because they're pretty, that's why. This is beach themed from top to bottom.
12. The Sweetest Gifts
I think those are the most romantic socks. Maybe the only time socks are a romantic present, too.
13. Rainbow Ice Cubes
They blink, too! Perfect for the reception!
14. Reflections of Love
See what I mean? The pictures where you're looking at your new spouse will be the best.
15. Personal Jars
This is so sweet!
16. Pick a Seat, Not a Side
Heather and I had a chalkboard sign saying this!
