Happy Pride Month, Folks!
While Dream Catcher Weddings celebrates all kinds of human beings and all kinds of love 365 days a year, we want to talk about some helpful wedding planning details for queer couples searching for the perfect venue. Planning a wedding and finding your perfect venue should be a time for love, joy, and celebration. For humans in the LGBTQIA+ community, finding wedding venues that are inclusive and affirming can be an added challenge, it can sometimes be unsafe, and outright terrifying. Fortunately, Colorado is home to many wedding venues that prioritize inclusivity and diversity. In this blog, I'll highlight some of the best inclusive wedding venues in Colorado for the LGBTQIA+ community to keep in their wedding planning pockets!
