Florida takes a huge step forward to equality in recognizing same sex marriages and on Thursday, February 5th and Creative Focus Photography was “the” hired photographer to capture 100 couples for a sunrise wedding ceremony at Ft. Lauderdale Beach.
To mark this anticipated landmark announcement for same-sex marriage equality in Florida, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau launched a “Love is Love” initiative to marry both LGBT and straight couples from across the nation in an historic collective wedding ceremony.
Reverend Dr. Durrell Watkins, senior minister, of the Sunshine Cathedral presided. The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, JetBlue, W Fort Lauderdale, Creative Focus Photography and other area partners joined together to provide a wedding to remember.
Home to the highest concentration of same-sex couple households in the country, and as one of the top LGBT vacation destinations in the world, Greater Fort Lauderdale is one of the most diverse gay capitals and continues to be a destination of choice for LGBT travelers with hundreds of gay-owned and operated businesses.
