When Kirsten and Maria Palladino were planning their wedding in 2008, they were highly discouraged by the complete exclusion of planning resources and magazine media for same-sex couples. Instead of crumbling under their frustration, they used it to start Equally Wed, a fabulous magazine that caters exclusively to same-sex couples on their way to marriage, with planning articles, real wedding features and a plethora of gay-friendly vendors across the nation.

I would go into how this endeavor speaks volumes about the long-overdue shift in marriage equality and how awesome the magazine is (check out the website if you don’t believe me) but, I think the article speaks for itself-so, read it!
