Marriage Equality comes to Pennsylvania!

Personal

This isn’t politics; this is love.

Anyone who knows me or my business knows that LGBT rights has been a top issue for me for years. I am a proud supporter of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and simply believe that two consenting adults should be given the equal protections and rights under the law whether they’re gay, lesbian, straight, transgender, black, white, or purple. Love is love.

I was living and mourning in San Francisco in 2008 when Prop 8 was passed and cheered its rightful unconstitutionality in 2010.  I celebrated the end of DOMA last year.

Today I cheer again. This time for my home state of Pennsylvania that ruled in favor of marriage equality and has struck down the same-sex ban! I will refrain from commenting that this should have happened a long time ago and just say:

You are on the right side of history and you have made me one very, very proud Pennsylvanian today!

Same sex couples who book with me for their 2014 or 2015 weddings within the next month (or already have booked for this year and next), will be showered with much love and an extra little gift from me to you. Give me a call at 215-703-7717 or email me at Lindsay@lindsaydocherty.com to go over your wedding plans!

Much love,
Lindsay

2012 is going to be big. Really big. Freaking huge!I moved to Philadelphia just 3 years ago and I’ll admit that showing up in December 2008 wasn’t the easiest pill to swallow when re-starting a business in a brand new area (remember that recession that hit in late ’08?). In 2009 I learned about the wedding culture in this area (trust me, there are definite differences between Philly and San Francisco) and started to figure out what was what around here. Things took off after that and now I’m busier than I’ve ever been. I’ve had some of the most incredible couples on the planet. I’ve seen weddings that have blown me away, made me cry (i ...

Goodbye, DOMA!
Today is an extraordinary day for the United States. This morning, the Supreme Court struck down keys parts of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and declared that same-sex couples who are legally married deserve equal rights to the hundreds of benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples.I keep my political opinions to myself when it comes to this blog but I feel that such a monumental ruling on LOVE has a special place here.My life is surrounded by love and weddings and it’s incredible. That we could even think of denying rights to gay couples is an atrocity. 12 states and DC offer marriages for all committed couples; ...
