Marriage Equality comes to Pennsylvania! ⋆ Lindsay Docherty Photography

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

Ahhhh!"Will you marry me?"~ Andy

School has started again. The days are (kinda) starting to cool off. My Pinterest is beginning to get a lot of fall outfits popping up on it. Most flowers are wilted until the next spring. The air is starting to smell differently. Baseball seasons is beginning to morph into football season. I suppose I need to face facts: summer is coming to a close.I won’t let it go down without a fight. I still relish the stray lightning bugs, lemonade, picnics, cotton dresses, A/C, and ice cream. There is still time for ice cream!  Now that I've moved my home to Chestnut Hill, come visit and we'll get some scoops at Bredenbeck's.Every month, I ...

Meet the new COO of LDP, Asher
He is small and sweet and social and so, so happy and I’m truly enamored in a way that I’ve never been before and didn’t quite expect.  I had Asher 6 months ago today after 9 months of heavy prepartum depression and a tiring labor.  Two weeks early, 17 hours of contractions, and an emergency c-section later (goodbye, birth plan!), I had a wiggly, tiny, bird-like baby weighing in at 6lbs 2oz. For a while we called him Mr. Magoo because he was so wrinkly and weak. And he rocked a sweet mullet! Eventually he filled out with plump cheeks, a melon for a noggin, and a dusting of hair.  Possibly because I kept expectations qui ...
