This weekend we are so excited to be the lead sponsor for the 1st Annual “The Way Weddings Should Be” a wedding expo for ALL couples.

This annual event will be geared specifically towards same-sex couples and couples who are excited about equality.

After the Marriage Equality Act went into effect in Maine on December 28, 2012, the changes in the wedding industry began to shift quickly. Jill Bean, event planner and wedding designer said in her invitation “While planning my own same-sex wedding, I attended another expo and felt uncomfortable. While no one was rude to me, I had to “come out” all day long as a lesbian and explain my unique situation. It was a little daunting and only served as practice for every vendor call I had to make in the months that followed. The idea of being able to walk into a room of vendors excited about serving couples like my partner and I serves as the inspiration for this event. I want every person planning a wedding to feel celebrated, excited and seen through the entire process.”

We will be attending the event and will be giving away a stay at the Beach Rose Farm for our upcoming Maine Diversity Showcase Weekend, on May 4.

Come visit us at the event this weekend!
