Native to South Caroline, Tammy and Patrice eloped to Washington, marrying each other at Seattle Glassblowing Studio. Photographer Jeanne Phinney credits officiant Elaine Way with organizing a lot of the wedding's details, particularly the unique ceremony. The couple signed a handmade ketubah they had brought with them and, with the help of studio artisans, created a custom piece of blown glass for their unity ritual! I'm loving how focused the artist is while the couple snuggles in the background. Sexy, artsy, romantic.

This sci-fi and steampunk-loving wedding is so full of DIY projects and amazing sights, you'll be pretty damn dazzled. Add in the amazing Beatles cover band, their "steampunk bling table," and of course, the San Diego Zoo setting, and you're in for animals, costumes, and a good ol' time.
Nestled in a barn, a wedding took place with loads of DIY projects, two brides in black and white, bibliophile details, and a feisty, bubble-loving pooch. They self-catered, self-decorated, and put their hearts and souls into this gorgeous venue. And just wait until you read about their realistic-meets-earthy ring ceremony!
Pip and Pink married each other while surrounded by a dozen or so loved ones at Nambiti Game Reserve in their native South Africa. Festooned in leopard print scarves and swaddled in ponchos against the rain, the women enjoyed a tour of the reserve after the ceremony. So yeah, I've got photos for you from Studio Nouveau of a zebra, an elephant, a lion — but dare I say you'll be most excited about the BABY GIRAFFE?
Jayme and Sondra found inspiration in the "So you're going to sit through a wedding" program, but customized it to include some same sex wedding-related questions that were inevitably going to arise. They titled it, "So you're going to sit through your (first, probably) two-bride wedding." They addressed the ceremony legality, ceremony length, and of course, where are the rainbows?!
Feast your eyes on this testament to the golden hour — a sunset elopement on a cliff in California, complete with a walk down memory lane. It's a sight for sore eyes, as is this adorable pair. They may have scaled their wedding down to eight guests, a dog, and this scenery, but it's huge on love.
I am a Caucasian, cisgender, homosexual woman. My fiancé is transgender. Xe was assigned-female-at-birth but identifies as genderqueer and uses the gender neutral pronouns xe/xyr/xem. No one ever uses xyr correct pronouns unless they are explicitly told to use them and even then some people flat-out refuse. So what do we do about it? I am done sitting in my bubble of privilege. I am popping my bubble, donning the outfit of a warrior bride (think chainmail veil), and taking my vocal sword into the crowd and to my wedding!
Two brides, two children, and all of us looking at them like the heart-eyed emoticon. With a gorgeous estate backdrop and only 30 days to plan, this wedding came together like gangbusters. And when you hear what the brides' son did after the ceremony, you just might join our collective "aww."
These two traditional, feminist, queer, Christian women are an interesting mix. Add in their vegetarian reception, and you can imagine how many challenges they may have faced. But, outside of some catering reservations, you'd never know it! This wedding blends all of these factors into a sweet and lovely day that fits these two like a glove.
