In light of the Supreme Court granting a sweeping victory to the gay rights movement and paving the way for marriage equality for all, Arsenic Magazine has released a provocative photo spread in support of marriage equality.

Escorted out of LA’s Exposition Park Rose Garden by LAPD, it was unclear to the Arsenic crew if the complaints regarding indecent exposure were in response to the nudity or the subject matter – two women marrying one another in (minimal) bridal attire.

Before they were shut down, photographer Ana Ochoa was able to get beautiful shots in her pictorial, “Love is Love,” featuring models Sarai Rollins and Lauren Volker. The highlight of the spread is an homage to the infamous Kate Moss ad for Agent Provocateur Bridal taken by photographer Inez van Lamsweerde.

Sabrina Hernandez was on hand to style hair while, Nichole Gustafson handled make-up. Ali Levine Designs provided fashion styling with art direction by Caitlin Brosious.

Arsenic Magazine is gaining a reputation of not shying away from controversy. Most recently, AM lampooned Vice Magazine for their shameful depiction of the final moments of famous author's suicides.

A new digital magazine, Arsenic, lives at the intersection of sexy and artistic. Arsenic is about what's next. It's avant-garde, fashion forward and on the fringe. Arsenic is producing it's own content but their primary focus is to curate user submissions that share their vibe and aesthetic. Arsenic Magazine is also looking for the next #arsenicgirl, an instagram contest where the winner will receive a photo shoot and $1000 in cash and prizes.
