Gay Weddings and Marriage Magazine goes beyond wedding day tips to address the needs of LGBTQ families and marriage. Advice from wedding coordinators experienced in LGBTQ ceremonies are mingled with tools from marriage counselors to make a relationship successful. GWM also addresses the family planning needs of so many LGBTQ couples with columns regarding adoption, foster care, surrogacy, and more.
The Offbeat Bride website launched on January 1st, 2007 to support the release of Seattle author Ariel Meadow Stallings’ book, Offbeat Bride: Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides. What initially began as a book promotional project slowly grew into a completely different beast — a publication with a small staff of editors who update daily with tons of “wedding porn” (photos from real people’s really offbeat weddings), advice, and inspiration for couples who are working their asses off to create authentic weddings full of intention and personality.
St. Louis, also known as the Gateway to the West, has a storied past and rich modern culture. St. Louis isn’t known for tons of internationally acclaimed galleries, but its arts scene thrives nonetheless. Local hotspots like Venice Cafe and Citygarden showcase work by up-and-coming creatives and professionals alike. And the Gateway Arch is, of course, a must-visit to have your photo taken while in the area. But instead of settling for a selfie, why not work with a local portrait photographer? Check out our list of the best St. Louis portrait photographers.
On average, there are 2.5 million weddings in the United States each year. That is 2.5 million different ways to celebrate love with factors such as location, religion and culture playing a big part in what we as guests and loved ones see. Of course, there’s always the photographer to consider, as they will be the deciding factor on how your wedding day is remembered for years to come. When all of these decisions come together in the photographs, we have chosen to display them on our Real Weddings page.
Your photos and videos will be all that remains to tell the full story of your wedding day. We approach each wedding with the goal of submitting the captured imagery for awards and/or publications.
Here are a few recent awards and publications featuring our work:
