Hudson River Photographer, New York City – Featured Lesbian Wedding Vendor

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Hudson River Photographer

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:

Hi, I am Diane Stredicke, owner of Hudson River Photographer, and I celebrate the legalization of same sex marriage in New York!

I am thrilled to see the number of gay and lesbian couples marrying in New York City, Westchester and the greater Hudson Valley region. Every time a gay or lesbian couple contacts me, I do a little happy dance. Seriously!

About a third of my clients in the 2013 season are gays and lesbians, and I couldn’t be happier. Next year, I hope it will be closer to half!

What does this mean to you?

I understand the small ways same sex weddings are different from straight weddings. All weddings celebrate love and commitment, but gay and lesbian weddings sometimes take fun and unique paths to saying “I do”.

I work to keep my photography artful and authentic. Most of the day, I am simply photograph what I see: your family, your friends, the candid moments that make up the story of your wedding day. I spend time with you to create natural portraits of the two of you that showcase the fun and unique couple that you are!

Choosing your wedding photographer can be difficult. We are the one vendor that will be with you most of the day. Spend some time looking at the photos on my blog – I post every wedding and show lots of images, so you really get a sense of how we work.

Call me or email me today and I’d be happy to talk with you about what we offer, my photography style and pricing.

I work in the Hudson Valley, New York Metro, Connecticut and the Berkshires in Massachusetts.

My work has been featured on “On A Bicycle Built for Two”, “gayweddings.com”, “So You’re EnGayged!” and in the newly published book, “Capturing Love: The Art of Lesbian and Gay Wedding Photography.”

I look forward to learning more about your wedding day!

CJ the DJ – Featured Gay Friendly Wedding Entertainer

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

CJ the DJ

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:

2017 will be my 20th year as CJ the DJ.
I believe in love, freedom to marry & good parties!!

I live in beautiful, rural Fitzwilliam New Hampshire & host weddings regularly around New England; I’m considered the #1 local DJ from the votes of my local paper, the Keene Sentinel.

Becoming a club DJ as pastime when I turned 21, it became a passion when I changed venues, sharing the experiences with my foster children while entertaining families at a local farm resort.

I love DJing weddings, the experiences it brings & the wonderful people I meet or become closer to through music, particularly by helping them plan & execute most important days of their lives.

I’m also extremely community-minded & believe in equality.

I serve as Selectman for my hometown of Fitzwilliam New Hampshire, on my Alumni Board for Franklin Pierce University & I remain active in many organizations: Gap Mountain Lion’s Club, American Legion NH Post #11, Fitzwilliam Garden Club, Historic District, Historic Society, Twin States Network, Camp Takodah, YMCA, etc.

For every wedding entertain, I DJ two charity events.

I love animals & help Monadnock Humane Society & Fast Friends Adoption Center raise thousands annually. I help cancer groups, AIDS organizations, homeless shelters, youth groups, church groups, government organizations, business networks, local chambers of commerce & I often volunteer, providing sound for unique events, like the NH Travel Councils 39th Annual Governor’s Conference on Tourism and Peterborough’s Annual Gala this past Saint Patrick’s Day.

Minister Deb Weddings, San Diego – Featured Gay Wedding Officiant

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

Minister Deb

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:

My name is Minister Deb and I have been officiating traditional and LGBT wedding ceremonies for over 12 years.

Before same-sex marriage was legal I officiated ‘commitment ceremonies’ for same sex couples who wanted to participate in a ceremony that had all of the components of a legal marriage. While performing these commitment ceremonies our visibility exploded as gay and lesbians fought for equal rights to legally wed. I lobbied, protested and spoke out for legalizing same-sex weddings for many years. Finally the Supreme Court gave all citizens the right to marry the person they love on June 26, 2015.

Since 2002 I have officiated over 250 weddings and I do this as a service to the LGBT community and to spread ‘loving kindness’ throughout our communities. Love has conquered our enemies and now they are our allies.
