Weddings are meant to celebrate the love that two people share as well as their commitment to one another for the rest of their lives. We at Inside Weddings love nuptials of all varieties – and this goes for the couples themselves as well. In honor of June being National Pride Month, we wanted to share inspirational imagery from some of our favorite same-sex ceremonies and receptions featured in the pages of Inside Weddings and on InsideWeddings.com.
In addition to feeling the beautiful love each pair has for one another, these events showcase personalized details meaningful to the couple in various design elements that can also offer ideas to affianced duos regardless of their sexual orientation. The décor and details are filled with inspiration for a number of wedding styles and themes and also represent the personality and tastes of the marrying pair – which we see more and more couples doing in order to put their own spin on the celebration.
Take a look at the events below, and be sure to click on the link below each image to see more inspiration from these real weddings!
Seven years after Dr. Richard Shillabeer and Mr. Freddy Lopez first met over Thanksgiving Weekend, they welcomed friends and family to their luxurious Los Angeles wedding, which took place on the same holiday weekend. “We always knew we wanted to be married, [so] we discussed and planned how it would all unfold,” shares Freddy. First, Richard asked Freddy; then, they purchased their rings; and to come full circle, Freddy asked Richard.
