When it comes to weddings, BRIDES believes all couples should have the right to say, "I do!" And now that the United States Supreme Court has finally ruled in favor of a national right to wed, regardless of sexual orientation, we're certainly feeling the love.
We see hundreds of gorgeous wedding photos each day, so it's safe to say we know a thing or two about touching, romantic, and inspiring photography. Today, it's all about the sweetest same-sex couples. We rounded up some of our favorite photos of same-sex pairs in every setting, from urban weddings with city street photo sessions and super-cool museum venues to rustic receptions and classic ballrooms.
So which photos absolutely stole our hearts? From Lara Hotz comes the two sweetest brides, each wearing knee-length lace dresses and a trendy flower crown. Their session amidst a garden of bright flowers totally had us swooning. Then, from Milou + Olin we saw two incredibly dapper grooms, who looked so dashing in their sleek tuxes. Ask Steph snapped a breathtaking shot of a stunning couple sharing a moment with San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge looming in the backdrop, while Hudson River Photographer's couple beams back from their photo with the widest grins.
In all of these photos, though, one thing is clear: No matter where they're wedding or what obstacles the couple had to overcome, they are all so genuinely happy to be exchanging vows with the person they love most in the world.
