Grooms in veils and a solo by The Mama Tits: just another gay Seattle wedding

After a decade-long partnership, Jeremy and Eric were finally married last June — on the very day that the state of Washington converted most state-registered domestic partnerships into legally recognized marriages! The couple said their vows on their own backporch in front of a few close loved ones. Damn, everything looks perfect. The colors, the smiles, the view, the weather — it all looks lovely and intimate and romantic and everything a wedding should be between two people who've been together so long.


Two grooms steal secret vineyard kisses and dance the hora at their California wedding

You don't have to have tropical beaches to make it a destination wedding! Jeff and Brandon said goodbye to New York and hello to California last October to get married in wine country. I dare anyone to flip through these gorgeous photos and NOT smile back at these two adorable men. The giggles! The kisses! The suits with tiny plaid! I personally could not hold back an "awww!" at their baby photos adorning the rows of chairs along the aisle. Seriously cool alternative to a slideshow or photo table.


This groom serenaded his new husband at their monochromatic San Francisco wedding

July, surrounded by a sea of guests in all-white attire. Breezy white clothing, colorful roses everywhere, a stunning landscape — chic and sophisticated, right? Yes, AND the perfect juxtaposition for professional-grade serenades!

After David and Pablo shared their first kiss as husband and husband, Pablo began singing David's favorite: I Can't Help Falling in Love. My heart melted because ohmygod, one of my very favorite songs too! And then, AND THEN. A few of Pablo's professional theater friends stood up and began singing harmony.


Get your rainy-day cuddle on with these two grooms in Hawaii

Y'all know we love our rainy weddings at Offbeat Bride, and this is one for the frickin books. Chad & Eric got married at Kualoa Ranch on an overcast Hawaiian day. Their first-look photos are some of the most epically sweet I've ever seen: Eric's suit is sprinkled with raindrops as he tries not to cry in Chad's arms (squeee!). The couple positively shine through the soggy conditions, roaming the beaches and posing like fashion icons.


It's Up to Us is fighting the good fight for same-sex marriage in Australia, and you can too!

The latest survey tells us that 72% of Australians support marriage equality; this is the highest that support has ever been in our country. Unfortunately, this is not a view shared by our government. The feminist me — who is so freaking grateful to the feminists who fought for the rights she now enjoys — has had enough. I have rights because of those who came before me, and it’s up to us to fight for marriage equality for those who are here now, and those who come after us.
