The internship lasted a semester and I moved on and that was the end of that.
And then a few years post college, before this whole gay wedding planning business came about, I was really struggling with what to do with my life, just like many mid-twenty-somethings. I was an avid listener of Car Talk and was once on the show with my own car-related question, "I'm good with my hands. Should I be a mechanic when I grow up?" I think we all know the answer to that one, but it was fun to be on the radio nonetheless.
Fast forward eight or nine years and here I am, a gay wedding planner, loving every minute of it, and NPR calls me to do an interview on music at gay weddings. Of course!! If there's anything I know something about, it's gay weddings and music is one of my favorite subjects. And I love that so much of the music I hear at my clients' gay weddings is the same music that I was personally dancing to at clubs when I was newly out.
So, without further ado, here's the interview for your listening - my thoughts on gay wedding music!
What kind of music is being played at your wedding? Are you sticking with traditional wedding songs or going a more contemporary, pop route?
