In honor of Pride Week, we continue to look back on our favorite same sex couples this week. Sarah and Kim had been engaged and waiting to get married for a long time. But Sarah is a Marine, so they were forced to wait until Don’t Ask Don’t tell was repealed. Knowing that was to finally happen in September, Sarah and Kim quickly planned a wedding for October. I get to witness a lot of marriages and meet a lot of wonderful couples and probably because of that privilege I no longer tear up at weddings. But these ladies choked me up more than once leading up to their wedding as well as on their wedding day. In working with them both individually they each in their own way expressed how much they just wanted the other to be happy and have what she wanted. You cannot meet them for more than a few minutes without seeing their love for one another.
Their ceremony was amongst my favorites because of their obvious love. I loved their non-traditional reception where we transformed a local gay bar into a fun reception space. Sarah and Kim are proof that good things are worth waiting for (including their two beautiful girls they have now added to the family)! Congratulations, Sarah & Kim, I was so proud to be a part of your day!
