Love is Love Event at the W Ft Lauderdale Hotel

One of my favorite hotels in the country is the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. On February 4, I was invited to visit the hotel and facilitate a one hour training for the catering sales staff, the general manager, and other team members. The training covered all aspects of same-sex weddings, to ensure this hotel is totally equipped to be great advocates for the LGBT clients, and understand the latest trends in same-sex weddings. The team was very enthusiastic and excited, and I love this beautiful property. It's going to be a great destination for same-sex couples.  More

Enjoy the list below and we look forward to hearing from you to celebrate this new year!  More

Speaking to Wedding Professionals in Mexico

It's no secret that I love planning same-sex weddings.  But I also love making the wedding industry a more inclusive place for same-sex couples, and I do this through my trainings and speeches.  I'm fortunate have a global audience, and just in the past year, have spoken in Mexico four times.  Mexico is one of my favorite places because I love the culture and natural beauty, the warmth of the people, the food, the beaches, and of course the tequila.  By and large, Mexico is a very gay-friendly country and Jen and I really enjoy our trips there, whether for work or pleasure.    More
