It's always a plus when your future spouse has a talent for drawing! Chris spent hours illustrating a “classic map of the heavens” for their guest book from which they took elements to create their wedding programs and favor bags for their star-themed wedding. | Photo by Suzanne Rothmeyer

As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples—gay, straight and lesbian—can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born. I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
