On January 1, 2012, Hawaii finally recognized same sex marriage, making Hawaii the seventh state to permit civil unions or similar legal recognitions for same sex couples.
I am thrilled that same sex couples in Hawaii have finally been given the same legal rights as everyone else, many congrats to the gay & lesbian community! Before the law passed though, I had actually already photographed a few lesbian and gay weddings.
What always gets to me is the overwhelming support I have seen for couples who have chosen to celebrate their lives so openly,and now legally! It is touching to witness such love and acceptance.
Del Rae & Doede were married yesterday by Rev. April Weaver (firstname.lastname@example.org). Congratulations to my most recent happy couple, and what a memorable couple they are. They’re 2 of the nicest ladies you’ll ever meet! I have to say, I really really enjoyed being a part of their special day, which was very relaxed and incredibly friendly.
