Happy New Year

Happy new year, friends and colleagues!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  This post is a little late because our holidays were kind of hectic...between both of us getting horrible colds and Jen's grandma passing away, we have been fairly unplugged. As always, we start the new year highlighting 14 things that were exciting about LGBTQ rights, marriage equality and our company in 2013. Enjoy the list below and we look forward to hearing from you to celebrate this new year!  More

14 Stories and the W Retreat and Spa in Vieques

We have some very exciting news that we've been working on for months.  The press release pretty much says it all, but the short story is that 14 Stories and the W Retreat and Spa in Vieques Island (Puerto Rico) are announcing a special same-sex wedding planning partnership.  It thrills me to be partners with the W, especially since Starwood Hotels is consistently a great ally to the LGBT community.  Keep reading for more details.  More

Family Equality Council to Benefit from 14 Stories Weddings

As I've said before, the Family Equality Council is an LGBT organization near and dear to my heart.  In light of the AMAZING news surrounding the Supreme Court's rulings, I wanted to make a donation to FEC on behalf of all new full production clients who book with us.  SO here's the deal: for all full service weddings booked with 14 Stories by August 15, 2013, 14 Stories will make a donation of $1000 to Family Equality Council.  For every elopement booked in that time, we'll donate $150.  So, show the LOVE with 14 Stories and Family Equality Council.  More

Though I'm originally from NY, it had been over 15 years since I lived in the state.  More
