Our First Gay Wedding in The Land Of The Free, And The Home of The Brave.

On July 4th we celebrated My Little Flower Shop’s first gay wedding! Embracing this new freedom on Independence Day was incredibly symbolic.

Here’s our take: Gay weddings are weddings. Unqualified, no label required weddings. Bernabe_Young_Photography_by_Jessica_Fajardo_FeatureTB144_lowBecause now, LGBT people in love in the state of California have the same rights as anybody else, and having bravely fought for that freedom have the luxury of being just another couple getting married. And if we haven’t mentioned it, we LOVE weddings, and we adore our couples.  All of them.

So as far as we are concerned at My Little Flower Shop, “Gay Weddings” are weddings, like those of all our other clients getting married. They are…what’s the word I’m looking for? Oh yeah. Equal. 

Let Freedom Ring.

Be well, and love well.

Wedding Movie Wednesday Suspended – Supreme Court News

OK – yes, it’s Wedding Movie Wednesday, but what with the momentous events of this morning, I just can’t idly prattle on about wedding movies.  Today at the Supreme Court, we turned a corner as a country. All details aside, the bottom line is that love is love, and that a same sex couple getting married should cause no more uproar than any other two people (no comment from this Palm Springs florist on uproar caused by crazy families, everybody’s got those).

So,having overcome obstacles both dramatic and comical, we have a victory for love. I said no movie talk, but in the end, isn’t two couples embracing on the steps of the Supreme Court the Hollywood ending we all hoped for?

Be well, and love well. Finally EQUALLY well.

DOMA and Prop 8 – The Supreme Court Decisions on Gay Marriage

“If we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal, as well.”

These words, spoken yesterday by our President, were long in coming, but oh so gratifying to hear! As floral and wedding professionals, we are in the love business. From Valentine’s Day to Mother’s Day to Wedding Day, we help people celebrate their love for one another.  All men are created equal – everyone deserves to love who they want without judgement or fear.  And we want to provide anyone who wants one with a FABULOUS celebration. If you are committed to each other, we are committed to you, your families, and your wedding.  Invite the President – sounds like he wants to come too.

Be well, and love well.
