A snack for the eyes: two gorgeous grooms and their secret rainbow cake

My favorite part might just be Ryan and Tyler's ridiculously awesome cake. On the outside, it fits the rest of the reception like a glove. It's square, streamlined, and super elegant with silver and black trim on a white field. But cut that sucker open and RAINBOW CAKE FOR DAYS, BABY. I love it. What a juicy lil surprise in a serious-looking package.

Two grooms in white elope to Olympic Sculpture Park

Fifteen is a lucky number for Jos A and Brick, and they made sure to exchange vows at precisely 5:15 p.m. on May 15, 2015. The two grooms kept their elopement super simple at Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle: just a pair of matching white suits, a couple of purple pocket squares, and two very smashing hats. They said their vows in front of a few important guests (four, including the officiant) and followed up the occasion with wine and tapas in their own apartment.

It was beautiful and moving, but I also remember thinking: “Where’s my penguin?”

How we're talking to religious guests unsure if they want to attend our lesbian wedding

Now, you and I both know that it's the same as any other wedding (or as different as every other wedding, as the case may be). But within our community, it's kind of a rare thing. I mean, this will be MY first two-bride wedding! We have specific people who have issues with our relationship for religious reasons and I wanted to offer a non-confrontational way to talk about that subject and maybe squeeze out a few "yeses" from those who are on the fence.
