When Kristen proposed to me, I was so surprised that she was asking me when she did that the first thing out of my mouth was ‘for real?!” and she said, “for real!” so, we have taken that as a representation of our future lives together. We are in this for real. We have made our vows to commit to each other for real. I know it seems like just a saying, but the way it came out and what we have taken it to mean has turned it into something important to us – we even both have it engraved on the inside of our engagement rings.
I chose to name my blog after our “for real” because gay weddings are happening out there and people need to start realizing that these are real couples, planning real weddings, and getting married, for real.
I love writing this blog and sharing these amazing couples with all of you – and hopefully providing you with some inspiration for your wedding day! I also enjoy getting to know the couples I feature by reading their stories and posting their images.
I hope you enjoy my blog. email me, leave comments, or subscribe.
