GAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN LOS ANGELES
We are open to all and allies to the gay community. We believe love is love. Our family are members of the LGBTQ gay community. Gender equality is important to our beliefs therefore we were proud to participate in this same sex event.
SAME SEX WEDDING VENUE
The venue was perfect with a warm masculine feel for this same sex wedding. Moreover, it is a historic landmark just northeast of Downtown Los Angeles. Additionally, fabulous restaurants, clubs and wedding venues fill the area.
The area is a mecca for artists with a vibrant gay presence. Hipster bars and dive bars coexist likewise all types of residents who call the area home. Most noteworthy, Highland Park Bowl is the oldest operating bowling alley in the area.
It was lovingly restored by The 1933 Group. Established during Prohibition, our designer captured a retro feel while styling the venue. Pewter goblets, silver chargers and blue linen napkins rounded out the masculine feel. Indigo blue vintage glass served as receptacles for the purple posies.
Our grooms both wore blue but Kiley wore a plaid tux because of his Scottish heritage. Gorgeous thistle and bits of rosemary formed their boutonnières. The invitations and place cards reflect the vintage era and same sex style. The concrete and marble wedding cake similarly reflect the masculine theme.
The vintage amber bar was a show stopper while bathing all the photos with a gorgeous warm glow of love. Furthermore, whiskeys from time gone by adorn the shelves. Finally, an original hand painted forest backdrop covers the rear wall of the bowling alley. The vintage pins rise and fall while intricate mechanisms beguile onlookers.
SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN THE UNITED STATES
While same sex marriage was initially passed in Massachusetts in 2004, gay couples were denied that right in the remaining 49 states until 2015. The case recognizing gay and lesbian couples the right to marry is Obergefell v Hodges. In a 5-4 decision the court recognized that same-sex couples right to marry is guaranteed by both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of our Constitution. All fifty states must now recognize the right of same sex couple to marry and must perform the ceremonies.
