About Ciara & Melinda


Us, 2014


Us, 2015

Thank you so much for visiting our blog! We originally started our blog after realizing there were not many resources out there to help same-sex couples, specifically in the South, plan their weddings. We wanted to change that so we created our blog to showcase our wedding planning journey. We provided feedback concerning the vendors we worked with and we talked about our unique experiences as well.

It was an incredible experience. 

On July 26, 2015, we got married and it was time to shift the focus of our blog. We had cultivated a significant support base and knew that this blog could serve a greater purpose. Now instead of talking about our wedding planning journey, we’re talking about our journey as a married couple. It’s our goal to be transparent, relatable, real and encouraging. We want to show people that same-sex couples can create healthy, long-term marriages. Furthermore, as we’ve said before, we want to create a safe space where our readers can gain inspiration, encouragement and even a few laughs. Whether you’re a same-sex couple or just someone who’s eager to view the world through a different lens, we invite you to take this journey with us!
