My second wedding of 2017 was the first of FOUR fabulous OFFBEAT BRIDE couples. I was honored to assist these two on their intimate, Upper West Side wedding, which began with getting ready at The Carlyle Hotel, followed by a full Greek Orthodox wedding service and dinner for 35 at Carmine's UWS (with a flash mob thrown in along the way, organized by the bride!). Along the way, I worked with the lovely ladies of BAM Wedding Photography for the first - and not last! - time. Thank you for trusting me with executing your big day, my every warm wish goes to you for a memorable 2018!

Their wedding was gorgeous - stay tuned for some amazing photos from Anthony Vazquez Photography - but in the meantime, here's their write-up in the Times (fun fact - they are my first NY Times couple!), as well as a few photos taken by yours truly to whet your appetite.
I don't know about you, dear reader, but I for one have been looking for declarations of love and equality to inspire me as of late. I'm guessing I'm not the only one.
Lucky for us, then, that this little nugget came into my social media feed over the weekend:
Here's a little info from their presser:
"LOVE ALWAYS WINS is an NYC Marriage celebration being organized by a group of NYC Wedding Professionals in celebration of marriage equality. Wedding pros, friends, and community members will come together and donate their time/goods/services to provide an evening of free, pop-up, legal weddings for LGBTQ couples who are looking to be married before the new president is sworn into office. There will be photography, music, cake, decorations, glitter, bubbly, and most importantly, LOVE.
LOVE ALWAYS WINS will take place at Judson Memorial Church on Inauguration Eve - Thursday, January 19, 2017."
I can think of nothing more inspiring to my soul than to support and share an event such as this, and to re-affirm that Stephanie Gatton Events will always, ALWAYS stand as an ally to couples of all shapes, sizes, creeds, colors, nationalities, and sexualities.
Please spread the word to any who may want to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to celebrate their love! If you are a couple wanting to participate in this event, click here to register yourselves (please note that all couples are responsible for obtaining their own marriage certificate prior to the event).
