14 Stories is a boutique wedding planning firm and was the country's first to specialize in planning legal gay and lesbian weddings. We've planned more of them than anyone else in the country. We are innovative and distinctive, having been in business since 2004 when we opened our doors as same-sex marriage became legal in Massachusetts. Now we plan weddings for LGBT and other progressive-minded couples everywhere they are legal with offices in Boston and New York. We are proud to be an NGLCC-certified LGBT owned enterprise and we LOVE what we do!
14 Stories's mission is to ensure that all LGBT couples have the most positive, supportive experience while planning their wedding. Our commitment is to produce gorgeous, meaningful and fabulous legal weddings with a holistic approach that guarantees that couples also receive resources to build and protect their family. 14 Stories promotes marriage equality and reduces homophobia in the wedding industry through our educational seminars for wedding professionals.
What's the 14?
The number 14 has a powerful legacy in marriage’s civil rights history. The U.S. Constitution’s 14th amendment worked toward dismantling institutionalized segregation and ending the ban on interracial marriage. The historic Massachusetts court case that first led same-sex marriage to be legalized in the U.S. had 14 plaintiffs. We believe that these individual stories - and your stories - are the stories that change the world. Our work is to translate these stories and symbols into once-in-a-lifetime, one-of-a-kind weddings.
Giving back to our community is one of our core values, and we make a donation to charity on each full service client's first anniversary. We also regularly donate wedding planning hours to silent auctions and time to other fundraising events. Some of the organizations we've supported include: HRC, Lambda Legal, The Point Foundation, GLAD, GLAAD, Mass Equality, Fenway Community Health Center, Marriage Equality USA and the Family Equality Council.
