Love Always Wins

I just discovered that I never shared this byline here!  I recently covered the wedding of my friends Rebeka Lee and Jenna Proffit for the amazing site Equally Wed. I was inspired to write about this wedding because it happened immediately following RFRA passing in Indiana. Jenna pedaled on stating, “Love always wins.”

I am so proud to have my voice and support included on this amazing site catering to LGBTQ couples. I hope you’ll head over and have a read. The piece is brief, and the photography is done by local Bloomington photographer Stephen Phillips. You may remember him as the artist behind my author photos.

Discussion about this post

  1. So beautiful, and this line made me cry —> “It later occurred to me that this is the first wedding my sons will remember.” Amazing. Wonderful.
