We honor every path to marriage
all those choosing to join
in legal union.
Love is the limit! Those seeking a legal union are invited to participate by celebrating their love and legal commitment with help from our passionate makers, vendors, and volunteers. We work to create safe, welcoming events to honor the union and ceremony of marriage with dignity for all families exactly as they are.
We gather the best vendors in the wedding industry who graciously donate their time and services. Professional wedding photographers, floral designers, caterers, and event planners, among others, provide couples with a big-budget marriage ceremony at no cost (really).
Marriers are encouraged to bring a small group of friends and family to witness the vows, the signing of marriage licenses, and engage in joyful celebration!
Every guest and volunteer will be required to complete the protocol of filling out an online health screening questionnaire before arriving, getting temperature checked, and wearing masks unless they are the couple saying vows.
