POPSUGAR Love & Sex

Gay Weddings Spread the Love

Jun 22 2014 - 6:00am

We're celebrating LGBT Pride Month with some of the most touching and beautiful gay weddings we've come across. Just like other lifetime lovers, same-sex couples incorporate many well-loved traditions, and the heart of the big day is the same: two people in love dedicating the rest of their lives to each other. We've picked some of our favorite gay weddings to share with you that are paving the way for the union of "man and man" or "woman and woman" to be the traditional weddings of the future.
