....with a photographer!

A few days ago I found a website for a Vermont photographer I liked and sent in the usual little contact info to see if she'd send me prices and whatnot. And just now she called me! And we chatted for like a half hour like she was my best friend. I was floored. She asked me questions about myself and Beth and what we do and stuff, and told me about herself and when she found out I was a vet tech we spent a bunch of time discussing her dog and our dogs and really she was so sweet and I was very impressed that she took the time to call. She said she really likes to get to know who she might be working with, because it helps her to take better pictures. We discussed my family, Beth's family, we talked about our kids and just tons of stuff.

She totally rocks. I know she's a bit expensive but photography is one wedding thing I'm not going to skimp on.

Here's her website, her pictures are gorgeous: http://www.dariabishop.com/index.htm

Choosing wedding colors [Sep. 28th, 2006|11:33 am]
Lesbian Weddings

I'm really interested to hear how people chose their wedding colors. I like blue, and so does my fiance, but we just want to make sure everything looks very well coordinated, beyond just "various shades of blue."

Advice from the color gurus out there?

Lesbian Wedding Questions on Etiquette [Jun. 2nd, 2005|08:19 pm]
Lesbian Weddings
[mood |stressedstressed]

Hi and congrats to those who are getting married and to those doing most of the planning for those friends, I feel your pain. I have some questions that I'm hoping somebody can help me with.
I am putting on both the brides showers AND bachelorette parties and have run into a few questions ...

I'm not trying to insult anybody with these questions, I am asking so I'm not so ignorant.

Are lesbian bridal showers okay for mixed company? We have a lot of trans-male friends *ftm* and is it okay to invite them as well as those who identify as female? A few of those trans men are gay and a few are straight*with female partners* and I know some of them would be insulted to be invited and then some would be insulted NOT to be invited as well. If I do end up having the shower open to our trans friends, what about the bio-male friends of ours? I've only ever been involved in straight, heterosexual weddings so I only know the etiquette regarding, NO MEN ALLOWED for the showers. Would it be okay to just keep that idea? Ugh, this is really stressful.

Another question is, can both bridal showers havthe same theme? I'm low on funds as I just moved in with m partner and we have loads of stuff needed to buy for our new home and putting on two showers and two bachelorette parties is going to break the bank. Is it rude to ask those other close friends who didn't take the initiative, to help pitch in for the costs? And is the same theme too tacky?

Since there are 2 bridal showers and some guests are invited to both, how are presents handled? I feel bad inviting some people to both showers and have them think they have to buy presents for both, especially when shower presents are expensive sometimes.

Are there any gay/lesbian websites that have help with the planning of these events? Bridal showers? Bachelorette Parties? Etiquette?

Again, this is a new thing for me and I've only had any experience with hetersexual weddings so I feel quite outta my element. Any help would be appreciated.

Introductions [May. 31st, 2005|11:06 am]
Lesbian Weddings

Hi everyone. I just got engaged a week ago to the most WONDERFUL woman. We are SO excited about planning our wedding. I thought joining a lj community would help in the process. We are currently living in NYC but are getting married October 6, 2007 in Madison, WI (where my sweetie is from). I'm from MI. Since we're so far away, we're relying on help from family and friends in the area to plan. I'm hoping to find suggestions here and to offer what we discover along the way. :-D

Website Promote [Mar. 29th, 2005|07:22 pm]
Lesbian Weddings

I hope I don't piss off the Mod. ^_^ I just wanted to promote a site I found. I thought it was interesting and I just wanted to share.

Don't worry, there's no r-rated pictures. ;)

If you and your partner are wanting to be a married couple and can't stand Bush's stupid laws that gay couples can't get married then go to this site. It's well worth it. You have to be over 18 to apply and living together. At least I think you have to be living together. haha. But I do know you have to be 18 or over.

If you could help spread the word too, that would be great. Thank you!

Good luck.

***EXTREMELY IMPORTANT*** [May. 14th, 2004|02:54 pm]
Lesbian Weddings
For those of you unaware of the nature of some of the anti-gay marriage protestors that will be showing up at the happy events about to occur, let me point you to this website so you may prepare yourselves for the extreme nature of some of the opponents to gay marriage:


This is the website of the Westboro Baptist Church, an extreme Baptist church based out of Topeka, KS. led by Rev. Fred Phelps. They travel around the country in their crusade against gays.

link to their general protest schedule:


link to PDF flyer about Cambridge, MA-specific protest:


I am confident that they (and, sadly, their small children) will be carrying the highly offensive signs shown in the flyer and other similarly offensive signs. Some of their signs in the past have included phrases like "Thank God for Spet. 11", "Hail Mary" (with one man bending another man over, mimicking a sexual position), and other such nonsense. Their signs are usually too graphic to show on the news, so I wanted to spread the word here.

<b>Please go to their website so you can be an informed citizen when their vitriolic, systemic march of hatred arrives in the first state in the nation to legalize gay marriage.</b>

Spread this post as wide as as far as you can.

I am so fucking happy right now. In addition to finishing the tweaking on my latest poem, I just spoke with my mother, and she has done the most fucking amazing thing!

Some background:

Mom lives in Greensboro, N.C. Not the deep south, but still "Good Ole Boys" territory and fairly socially conservative. A few weeks ago, she was invited by the local newspaper, the Greensboro News and Record, to be on their Readers' Advisory Network. What this is, is that when there are major "hot button topics," the newspaper folk ask for commentary from the Network, and publish some of the responses as editorials. So she agreed.

Well, today, the question they have asked of the Network is this:

On Tuesday President Bush urged Congress to approve a constitutional
amendment banning gay marriage.

Do you agree with a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage? Why or
why not?

Before you read her response, you should know that my mother does not believe homosexuality is a moral choice. She knows about me, and accepts it, but does not approve.

Here is her response.Collapse )

I am so proud of her right now that I could scream. I *so* hope they publish it.

SF Weddings Continue... [Feb. 21st, 2004|04:26 am]
Lesbian Weddings

I'm rather excited to see that same-sex weddings are still occuring in San Francisco. I'm not sure how long this will last but it just seems to me that this is the beginning of the end of discrimination against same-sex couples.

We went to our "more than likely" reception site earlier in the week. It's a very nice place and will suit our needs perfectly! The funniest part was when the coordinator asked for the name of the groom and my fiancee pointed to me and said, "she's my bride". The coordinator didn't miss a beat..."ok, what's your name?" How cool is that?
