Celebrations will be going on all over Florida today in support of the first day of marriage equality in the sunshine state. This is a historic day, achieved by courageous, dedicated individuals who worked toward love and hope against a current of hate, is certainly a day we should all recognize and remember.
We are saddened by those counties that have chosen to close all courthouse marriages; may they find peace for their anger and fear and move toward kindness and respect. Where obstacles have been built, so have bridges over them. There are many celebrants standing by all over Florida, as well as multiple mass marriages and re-commitment ceremonies; we hope all couples will be able to connect with the perfect celebrant for their wedding.
Congratulations to all of our friends in the LGBTQ+ community who are getting married!
