"Love Is Love: Ideas and Inspiration: The LGBTQ+ Wedding Book"

We’re lucky to have the time we have on the planet and luckier if we meet someone else to enjoy the ride with. Love and be loved. – Bryan Adams, singer, songwriter, photographer, and activist.

The 204-page book Love Is Love: Ideas and Inspiration: The LGBTQ+ Wedding Book includes more than 200 color photographs of real-life same-sex wedding celebrations from across the United States. The inspiring stories, ideas, and creativity of passionate industry professionals are featured within. The book includes events in a variety of styles, from a stunning military ceremony in Washington, D.C. by Blue Linden Weddings & Events to floral designer Paul Robertson’s own San Francisco backyard-chic wedding to a beautiful Florida beach ceremony photographed by Jessica Bordner. The LGBTQ+ friendly wedding professionals featured among these pages demonstrate that love is an equal right for all and meant to be celebrated.

Advice on love, marriage, and preparing for the big day is woven throughout the collection. Elizabeth Schwartz, one of the nation's best-known advocates for the legal rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, graciously provided an important historical perspective for readers in an emotionally powerful foreword, giving just a glimpse of the hard-fought journey for marriage equality. Love Is Love: Ideas and Inspiration: The LGBTQ+ Wedding Book is intended to inspire all who believe that love truly is love. As best said by the legendary Edie Windsor: “Marriage is a magic word. And it is magic throughout the world. It has to do with our dignity as human beings, to be who we are openly.” The weddings shown throughout the pages of this book evoke emotion; the joy is palpable, it’s infectious, and benton buckley books believes it’s high time we made magic!
