Donna and Lynne’s Backyard Ceremony with Love-Driven Details


Our favorite thing about this gorgeous wedding is the vivacious joy that seeps through Red Fly Studioā€™s lovely photographs. Love was the central detail in this beautiful outdoor wedding in Tallahassee, Fla., where Donna and Lynne incorporated elements of their most beloved activities in life into their ceremony. As guests took their seats, they were asked to choose one of three items to hold onto during the ceremony ā€” purple golf tees to represent their favorite game, beach glass to remember sunny afternoons together in a place they love and an array of different-colored stones to signify the strength in their relationship and the unwavering support from their friends and family.

On a bright green lawn underneath large drooping trees, Donna and Lynne exchanged vows and united their three elements into a clear glass jar, now infused with the love from their friendsā€™ and familyā€™s warm hands. After nine years together, the supreme court ruling influenced their decision to tie the knot in a colorful ceremony of deep purples that popped against the green backdrop. But the star of the show was the palpable love Donna and Lynne share for each other.
