Martha features a same sex wedding

categories Bits + Pieces, Real Weddings

Now, we’re not in the habit of getting all political on this blog, but we thought this was a noteworthy occasion and one that shouldn’t go without applause. In the Winter 2010 issue of MS Weddings, there is for the first time to our knowledge, a same sex wedding! If that’s not a statement about the way the wedding industry feels about such a sensitive topic, we’re not sure what is! Go Martha (and team)!


Congrats, Jeremy and Andrew, though clearly you did not send this to us, nor are you reading our blog. But congrats on your lovely wedding anyway. And hooray for letting people love and legally commit to whomever they chose.

  1. I noticed this and thought it was great. The wedding is adorable!

  2. So glad that Martha is taking a political stand by publishing this. Who shot it??

  3. Wow I have to say that I’m very proud of Martha. She always seems so stuffy and traditional…it’s awesome to see her celebrating marriages of all kinds.

  4. Charlotte,

    The photographers are Jacklyn Greenberg & Chris Brown of JAG Studios


  5. Thank you for posting this. Cheers to you and Martha.

  6. Way to go, Martha Stewart! I think this is fabulous and lovely. We should all take a moment to realize that love knows no race, gender, or otherwise. Marriage is a human right, not a heterosexual privilege.

  7. This is absolutely fantastic- atta way Martha!!!

  8. Martha just asked us for a same sex wedding as well – two women! I’m so excited to see them in the magazine.

  9. Oh, YAY! You guys are the best, pointing this out.

  10. hooray connecticut for legalizing same-sex marriages!
    …and also martha. this is fabulous!

  11. I thought the same thing when I saw it! Very cute wedding, also.

  12. That’s so exciting! I want to go buy a copy of the magazine just to support it. Thanks for posting this!

  13. yay for the martha crew, this rocks!

  14. Way to go Martha! I think magazines and blogs alike should be able to show ALL types of weddings. This is a step in the right direction! yaahooo!

  15. Well it is about time!! Love of all couples should be celebrated.


    Im so proud of Martha for making a stand on this subject. She is a very bright and strong woman that a LOT of people look up to. This is exactly what we need to remind the world that weddings are about love and not gender.

  17. This is really wonderful news!

  18. I noticed that! And I thought it was great. Go Martha, Go!

  19. True love is always worth celebrating !

  20. EXCELLENT NEWS! Kudos to Martha and, of course, to the newlyweds!

  21. Yay. Just yay.

  22. I noticed this in my MSW mag this month and got little butterflies in my stomach!!! Yayayayaa…….and especially YAY to LOVE : )

  23. WOW I LOVE the Photography! the family shot is AMAZING! GO martha for supporting their wedding and Kudos to the vendors for creating a lovely event for these men.

  24. Isn’t it sad this is “political”? Hopefully in 50 years we’ll look at images like these with the same nonchalance we have now when look at photos of weddings where the bride and groom are different races. For now, I’ll celebrate the acceptance! Jess is right: “Yay love!”

    I love their dapper outfits!

  25. It’s about time!

  26. love it. finally.

    When MA gay marriages became legal it coincided on the exact same day that we unveiled our sister site http://www.outvite.com! We have been happily creating invitations and holiday cards/announcements for gay marriages ever since! I am so glad to work for a company as with it as mine! {bravo martha}

  27. That’s great! What a great first step!

  28. Totally about time. Gay marriages are legal in Ontario (Canada) and it great to see a mainstream magazine be more representitive of marriage. Kudos to the MSW team.

  34. I saw this in the magazine and was SO SO happy. Thank you for posting about it!

  35. Fantastic for everyone!!!!!!! We should all celebrate equality and continue to fight for it!!!!

  36. This makes my heart glad and gives me a renewed sense of hope.
