How to host a LGBTQ wedding in Michigan
Well I suppose we could keep it simple and say...host a wedding, boom! married! duh!
Or, I could dive in little on the intricacies of having to inquire with vendors and ask if they allow or perform or participate in LGBTQIA wedding's and how the near fact that a couple would have to ask this question enrages me, but none the less they do and how do I know? because I get emails all the time that ask me this.
I'm trying really hard to make it very clear that:
We will work with you to find the perfect welcoming space to host your ceremony. And we can recommend other vendors to work with.
If you are part of the LGBTQIA community please know you are welcome here and you are loved here.
