Last year when we first came up with the idea of doing a full wedding giveaway, we were excited and crazy and not very sure the whole thing would work. I mean – giveaway an entire wedding? US? LeahAndMark? ha. We’re just photographers – and we KNOW how much effort it takes to put on even a simple wedding, nevermind a big production like the one that we wanted to giveaway.
And then somehow with the help of some very good friends, past Interns, and brand new friends and partnerships – we’re about to pull this off. There were moments when we weren’t sure if this was going to happen – like when this state’s largest bridal show wanted it contractually stipulated that same-sex couples couldn’t win (we said F*ck that and decided that they just weren’t the right people to work with us – because we want everyone to be able to marry) and then when early on we just couldn’t find anyone who would support us and our crazy idea… but now here we are.
We have some of the best wedding vendors in the business working with us, and now we have an amazing couple that’s getting married.
Introducing the winners of our WOW Wedding Contest with the most votes: Ronnie & Brent
“A WOW Wedding has always been a dream of ours, but financially out of reach. This opportunity would give us the chance to finally bring our families together and share in the love we’ve felt for each other these past 11 years. We understand we may be a long shot, but we think Atlanta is progressive enough to see a loving, committed couple break down some barriers. I hope you let our love for each other out shine any prejudice. Thank you for your time and consideration.”
We’re in Atlanta, Georgia and yes, nevermind the law! – Ronnie & Brent’s wedding is this weekend!
