It was an intimate day that was almost completely DIY. Beth and Sally bucked tradition and did many things that I find standard in LGBT+ weddings, like getting ready together and processing together down the aisle. It was representative of both of them and their time together - they designed their own gifts, artwork, invites and florals.

LGBT+ weddings are like heteronormative weddings in many ways--except there’s one major standout: the individuality is fierce and unapologetic. Photographing LGBT+ weddings is like coming up for fresh air. Couples tend to customize nearly all parts of their day, skirting the traditional route. Since I started photographing weddings, LGBT+ wedding trends have changed quite a bit. Yet some trends have stood the test of time. Some of my favorites are up on the blog!
I LOVE backyard weddings. I love the simplicity. I love the camaraderie. I love the uniqueness. I love that people make it their own. I love that there are usually long tables with family style dining and open seating plans. I love dancing under twinkle lights and stars. I love the lawn games and less formal attire and summery cocktails. I also love Pride month so what better way to celebrate it than with a month of LGBT+ wedding posts and related resources!
