Love Inc. magazine launches as an equal destination for all love and all weddings
October 15, 2013
Last week, Love Inc. Magazine, a new online publication devoted to equally featuring love and commitment (and the fabulous wedding celebrations that accompany that love) between different-sex couples and same-sex couples. The fully integrated digital magazine showcases weddings for straight couples and same-sex couples, grabbing inspiration from weddings across the spectrum. The Love Inc. website says:
Along with daily doses of inspiration in the form of articles, photo galleries and videos, as well as a biannual digital issue chock full of wedding planning ideas and resources, we offer a targeted interactive experience through reader-customized newsletters, vendor and event listings, and sponsorships.
The magazine already features several stories of real weddings from across the country, including many weddings of loving same-sex couples. Here's one photo from three of the great weddings, along with an excerpt of the sweet stories and breakdowns of the ceremonies, engagements, and receptions that went alongside these couples' weddings:
Abe & Frank (Story)
“Our favorite part of the event was hearing the other read their vows,” says Abe. “We each wrote our own, a task which we procrastinated in doing until the night before the wedding. I think given how important we both felt the vows were, it was hard to face the task of putting pen to paper. We were still polishing them the morning of the wedding, much to the chagrin of our officiant, and hadn’t shared them with each other so they would be a complete surprise at the event. Actually hearing what the other had written for the first time in front of all of our loved ones was a truly important moment.”
Chanel & Tanya (Story)
After being together for nine years, Tanya and Chanel decided to get married to “be a part of the change.” “We were lying in bed talking about how people and situations had affected us and felt moved to make our commitment legal,” explains Tanya of the couple’s engagement discussion. So, on their 10th anniversary, they and 25 of their loved ones, traveled from their home in North Carolina to the charming Berkshire town of Lenox, Mass., to spend a weekend filled with laughter and love.
Jason & Michael (Story)
Their culture-infused Jewish ceremony had custom touches that gave nod to a fusion of past, present and future, such as their chuppah which was designed with two brick columns to represent their home and a roof made of tallit from three generations of their collective families. The ceremony, which was conducted by Jason’s sister, also included excerpts from the modern day play “8″ which is based off of Prop 8 trial transcripts, and was followed with a traditional exchange of rings and vows. “Ultimately it was about the combination of the traditional and unconventional that really made it unique and special,” says Michael.
