Free Weddings: Two Marriages, One Universal Right
In the morning of August 25, 2011, A Practical Wedding and Lowe House Events will be throwing two free daytime weddings for couples who were selected through an application process. The weddings given away for Two Marriages, One Universal Right will take place on a beautiful fourteenth floor terrace with a city view with a legal officiant. The Terrace will also play host to flowers, cake and bubbly, plus room for friends and loved ones, as well as professional photographers. With lovely invitations designed by And Kathleen.
Because the organizers think that the best way to celebrate New York’s Marriage Equality Law is to help raise money to bring equality to other states as well, all attendees will be asked to make a suggested $40 tax-deductible donation to Lambda Legal at the door in an effort to raise $10,000 for the organization. Lambda Legal was chosen as the charity recipient because of their longstanding commitment to “achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work.”
The Tote Bags
To allow people who can’t attend the celebration to help support the event, we’re offering limited edition tote bags, for sale for just $20. They feature the Yay New York logo, a simple and evocative symbol of marriage equality. That and they’re super stylish. Get them before they are gone.
