Regular readers of Offbeat Bride know that we feature same-sex couples every week (like Washington residents Chad and Matthew pictured at left)… but this week is a little extra special here in the U.S. since Maine, Maryland, and Washington have all just passed initiatives furthering marriage equality (and Minnesota voted down a constitutional marriage equality ban).
To celebrate these victories, we're traveling down memory lane to share some of our favorite same-sex weddings that we've featured over the past six years in our gay, lesbian, and LGBT archives.
Jazell and Debra were part of the Pop Up Chapel event in New York City, which brought together unique arches to 24 same-sex couples for an open-air ceremony. Photo by Roman Francisco
Julie and Rebecca re-enacted the last dance scene from Dirty Dancing. I think they had the time of their lives, and hopefully as we see more states rolling out marriage equality, more same-sex couples will have the opportunity too. Photo by Sarah Tew Photography
Meghann & Shasta's colorful butterflies-and-feathers garden wedding included this shot which was merely captioned "EPIC PHOTO OF EPICNESS."
