David Gordon Photography

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

Don’t settle for boring straight wedding photography. (pun intended :-) I’ve been shooting events for over twenty years, but like most other photographers no doubt, same sex weddings have always been a relatively small part of my business. It certainly hasn’t been for lack of interest on my part. As a gay male and photographer in New York City, I’m absolutely thrilled about the legalization of gay marriage in New York, and look forward to photographing lots of NY same sex weddings for couples who have been waiting a long time for this to come about.

Mexico: Christian Group Halts Wedding, Claiming Grooms are Mentally Ill

Sunday, January 11th, 2015

Baja California - Apple MapsA same sex couple who had planned to marry Saturday had their wedding stopped by a spiteful “Christian” woman who first refused to give the grooms a mandatory pre-marital talk, and then claimed they were mentally ill for getting angry with her:

Saturday’s ceremony had been on the civil registry’s calendar for weeks. Hours after a spokesman for the city had confirmed early in the day that the wedding would take place, a top city official said the event had been canceled due to a complaint that the two men “suffer from madness.” The accuser was Angelica Guadalupe Gonzalez Sanchez, president of the Coalition of Baja California Families, who with her husband gives mandatory pre-marital talks to couples preparing for civil wedding ceremonies at Mexicali City Hall. In her complaint, Gonzalez said the pair had been “aggressive and impertinent” on Thursday after she refused to certify their attendance in her talk, and her husband told them that the sessions were intended for heterosexual couples.

One protester, David Mesa, a Christian pastor, said that he was morally and legally opposed to same-sex marriage, “because of what this could mean for the future, such as the adoption of infants, that’s our motive and nothing else.” A top municipal official, Jose Felix Arango Perez, told reporters early Saturday afternoon that “on our part, there were no obstacles. … However, the submission of the complaint by this individual obligates us to suspend the legal ceremony.” He said it is now up to the state’s family court system to resolve the issue. But a member of the Mexicali City Council, Abraham Medina, said, “I think it’s nothing more than an excuse. … They’re just doing this to buy time. I don’t know why they are making these people go through this torment.”

It still amazes me the lengths some people will go to prevent loving same sex couples from getting married.
