Lovejoy Weddings – Nashville, Tennessee

Lovejoy Weddings

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

Lovejoy Weddings offers beautiful, heartfelt, customized ceremonies to ALL couples wishing to marry.

Everyone’s love is unique and your wedding ceremony should reflect the fact. Lovejoy Weddings provides custom-crafted ceremonies that mirror your love story as we expertly guide you through the vows that shape your future together as a Married Couple.

The Celebrants at Lovejoy Weddings meet with you to learn your story and what brought you together. They listen to what is important to you as a couple and learn about your vision for your wedding. These details are then synthesized into the perfect ceremony for your Happy Day. Your ceremony – including your personal vows – will then be presented to you in a personalized souvenir booklet.

If a big celebration at a large venue and a guest list to match is not what you have in mind for your nuptials, Lovejoy Weddings offers a simple “elopement” ceremony for just the two of you in a public location of your choice or in your home! A great benefit of choosing an elopement is that it can be booked with very short notice on a weekday or evening as well as weekends. This is helpful if you are buying a house, traveling, or just wake up and feel like getting married one day. In addition, you will receive a copy of your vows in a beautiful, personalized souvenir booklet.

We at Lovejoy Weddings are endorsed by the American Humanist Association (an incorporated 501c3 religious organization since 1939). We are Humanist Celebrants (ministers) accepted to legally marry couples in all 50 states, including Tennessee! We provide traditional secular ceremonies that are sincere and memorable for you and your guests.

We guided more than 60 happy couples through their vows in 2016 alone! Contact us now to Book Your Lovejoy Wedding.

NOLA Ceremonies – Lesbian Wedding Officiant in Simpsonville, South Carolina

NOLA Ceremonies

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

“Who better to perform your same sex wedding than an officiant who is in a same sex marriage?. This is the foundation of NOLA Ceremonies. We understand.

NOLA Ceremonies was created by myself, Donna Chauvin – Buffone’ after planning my own same sex wedding a few years ago. It was a challenge to find an officiant who understood my world and my love for my now wife. Same sex marriage was not legal in our home state, so we eloped, without our loved ones present. I wanted a special ceremony on my special day. I did not want judgment. It was personal. Being gay friendly is wonderful, but I would have preferred someone in the LGBT world.. We are elated that our marriage is now recognized in our home state thanks to the Marriage Equality Act.

My wife Annette has since become an officiant. We have performed countless same sex weddings for our community! We are active members in the LGBT community and have enjoyed being part of the Marriage Equality movement. We do not believe that a marriage license is “just a piece of paper”, it is a right that gay and lesbian couples have been denied for way too long. It is OUR right to be exercised if we so wish.

Originally from New Orleans, we now live in Simpsonville, SC and proud to continue to provide LGBT couples with a personalized ceremony according to the beliefs of the couple. The first thing we ask is what the vision of the ceremony is, and we take if from there. All ceremony material is sent to each couple before the ceremony, to be sure it reflects the couple. We offer affordable prices and dependable service. We understand the needs of couples in the LGBT community and will do whatever we can to be accommodating. We know how important the right to marriage is and honor this always. This is why we love what we do!

Sadly, we have couples who have unsupportive family members who do not wish to attend the ceremony. While we cannot change this, we are very supportive of our couples while they make the very best out of their special day, regardless of who is present or not present. We can accommodate couples who wish to marry privately without anyone present. We will not judge, no questioned asked.

We offer a variety of unique ceremonies including handfastings, spiritual, secular, non-religious, non-denominational or commitment ceremony. Casual to formal, private to large groups. Our process is simple and easy; we do not want our couples to be stressed out about the process. Short notice is no problem.

We are an award winning dependable officiant service. You obtain the marriage license and after the wedding we will have it delivered to the courthouse to be filed.

A big congratulations on finding that special someone. Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns you may have regarding your very special day!

Melanie Monroe Photography – San Diego

Melanie Monroe Photography

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

Melanie Monroe Photography provides contemporary wedding photography throughout San Diego County and Temecula.

About Me: I am primarily a natural light photographer. I love the soft, flattering lighting that can be achieved without a flash, so I work with it whenever I can. I would describe my style as heavily photojournalistic, but with a dose of “posed candids” and formal shots. I spend a lot of time researching fun ideas for pictures, as well as looking at couples’ pinterest boards so I can get an idea of their style and things they like. I think it’s important to document the real moments that happen during your big day, all of the special details, as well as getting those portraits that you will cherish forever.

I work with a second-shooter for the majority of my weddings, so clients can be confident that their event will be well-documented! I also individually edit each and every photo you will receive. All of my wedding packages include all of your high resolution edited digital images with personal use printing rights. My prices are affordable and can be customized to fit most budgets. I am excited to provide my photography services to all types of couples in San Diego. Bring on the LOVE!

Black Bear Inn – South Lake Tahoe, California

Black Bear Inn - South Lake Tahoe

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

Black Bear Inn is a gay-owned bed and breakfast in South Lake Tahoe, and was voted one of the top 10 B&Bs in California. The owners, Jerry and Kevin, designed and built the lodge and cabins in the late 1990s with an eye toward recreating the old lodges of the West by incorporating rough-hewn beams, wood plank flooring, repurposed barn wood and a mix of antique and new furnishings.
The lodge has just five guest rooms, and three rustic cabins sit on the back grounds. Each lodge room has a private bath, king bed, fireplace, TV/DVD and comes with a full breakfast. The cabins have all the same amenities, plus they include a kitchenette and private outdoor patio.

Enjoy your romantic Lake Tahoe honeymoon getaway in this unique luxury lodge. Spend your days hiking, biking, and enjoying all of the lake activities that Tahoe has to offer, and then come back to the inn to relax and recharge.

Jerry and Kevin also perform small weddings at Black Bear Inn. Due to the intimate size of the property, wedding ceremonies max out at about 30 people when indoors and 50 people when outdoors in the summer months. Please contact the inn for more info on Lake Tahoe weddings marriages as well as using Black Bear Inn as your Lake Tahoe wedding venue.
