One year after the Supreme Court ruling to recognize marriage equality in the US, the LGBTQ weddings have been booming for our company. We have increased our same sex marriage business by 50% and we are thrilled with the overwhelming response of the couples that we have worked with already this year. We are so happy that they now have the freedom to celebrate their love and commitment to one another as traditional brides and grooms have been doing for years.
Roger, one of our 2016 grooms, said:
“While looking for a photographer, we stumbled upon Frankie Carll. At first, I thought that a company doing both photography and DJ would not be as good at either one. Boy, was I wrong. Not only are they great at both, it saves so much time and stress on your part to only have to deal with one vendor instead of two. Then, on the day of the wedding, I noticed even more benefits. To have your photographer and DJ know each other gives them a level of communication that makes it even better. We loved both the DJ and photographer we had. They were great to us and worked so well together. On top of their great work, and the easiness of working with FC, the value of both photography and DJ services is unbelievable! Anybody in NEPA down to the Lehigh Valley should consider Frankie Carll for their wedding. We are glad we did!”
Thank you, Roger, for your kind words.
When planning a same sex wedding here are a few things to think about:
Same sex couples are keeping up with long-standing wedding traditions: walking down the aisle, spotlight first dance, cake cutting.
The majority of couples recite vows at their wedding ceremony.
More than 60% of same sex couples will do a first dance.
With over a 60% increase in family acceptance more than half of same sex couples will dance with their parents. This is a milestone we are so happy to reach as there is nothing more important than family.
Design your party in a manner that makes you happy. This is yours and your significant other’s day, do what makes YOU happy.
Deal with a company that is LGBTQ friendly (you’ll know who they are after your first conversation with them).
Plan in advance to make sure you deal with the right company.
Do your research, read reviews, meet with these potential vendors.
We feel everyone has the right to be in love and get married no matter what gender, race, religion, or combination thereof. We have such a diverse client base which has given us the privilege of being a part of a variety of different ceremonies and traditions. Providing excellent service to all of our clients is our #1 priority. Though the years, it’s fascinating to see how wedding traditions and trends continue to evolve.
