LGBT couples tying the knot don’t have to worry about getting turned away by bakers or wedding photographers who oppose same sex marriage.
On Oct. 30 from 12 to 5 p.m., LGBT-friendly businesses that offer wedding-related services will be at Hagen Park in Wilton Manors for the 2016 LGBT Wedding Expo. The event will feature photographers, bakers, caterers, disc jockeys, hotels, tailors, florists, hotels, limousine companies, travel agents, restaurants and other vendors.
Wilton Manors staff members will also be in attendance to promote Richardson Park as a wedding venue. “It lets people know we have great facilities, especially for weddings,” said Patrick Caan, Leisure Services director. “We’re really excited.”
Caan said this is the third or fourth time the city has hosted an LGBT wedding expo. The city’s first LGBT-themed wedding expo predates the ruling by the Supreme Court that struck down anti-gay marriage bans across the country as unconstitutional.
This year’s expo is being organized by The Rainbow Knot, a company that bills itself as “a gay-friendly wedding vendor business directory.”
