One Love is a premier West Coast wedding showcase celebrating ALL couples in love. Launched last year in Seattle, the event provides couples with every aspect of creating a life together – from planning a wedding, to legal and financial support, real estate, and more. More than 80 award-winning, local vendors representing 25 life categories will be in attendance.
“We are proud to produce a one of a kind show that is sponsored by, and for our local LGBTQ and Allied business community,” said Jenny Harding, owner of New Chapter Weddings. “It is important for couples to feel equally celebrated and respected while they make plans to spend their lives together. The vendors in this showcase are hand-selected based on involvement in the community, price range, and unique style.”
New Chapter Weddings has partnered for the second year with the Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA) to produce the event.
“This year’s One Love Wedding Showcase, taking place less than five months after Washington State affirmed marriage equality for all, is guaranteed to be the biggest and best ever,” said Louise Chernin, President & CEO of the GSBA. “After all, when we show up at the One Love Wedding Showcase, created locally by and for those of us who celebrate marriage for all, we know we’ll find the best, most creative vendors who care about our families and are thrilled to work with us to create the perfect celebration.”
Washington State made history in November 2012 by passing Referendum 74 – extending marriage rights to same-sex couples. It is estimated Washingtonians will spend $88.5 million on same sex weddings over the next three years.
