We are thrilled by SCOTUS decision to make love accessible to all Americans. The rights granted by this decision put everyone on equal footing. These basic civil rights are long over due and it is a positive step in the history of our country.
Every LGBTQ friendly wedding vendor is excited to be a part of helping couples join together in matrimony. Oh, Henry Events is no exception. However, as engagements spark and the planning process begins, I can't help but wonder if the traditional ceremonial elements of the wedding and reception will continue - or if couples will be inspired to use this historical change to spice up the occasion. The ritual goes something like: ceremony, photos, toasts, dinner, dancing, cake, photos, sparklers, followed by a mad dash to the limo. It is a tradition as old as time. But now we have an opportunity to break with tradition on every level. I encourage all couples to look at their wedding ceremony and determine what makes it special for them. And then to incorporate all of these things into a unique service that is representative of their love, and their journey together.
