Summary: Quality wedding providers available to serve same-sex couples for their wedding needs.
LGBTWeddings.com is pleased to announce the August 15, 2015, launch of its website listing screened, quality wedding providers available to serve same-sex couples for their wedding needs. The website employs "LGBT Wedding Businesses Coaches" who not only screen business members, but educate and assist them in an effort to create a high benchmark of standard, understanding and expectation for the LGBT community in the wedding industry.
Couples can use the website as a resource while planning their weddings, knowing that the businesses listed are quality wedding professionals who have vowed to provide the highest level of products and services to same sex couples planning a wedding.
LGBTWeddings.com is a nation-wide listing of exclusive wedding providers. The company is based on the West Coast.
"LGBTWeddings is like a 'Chamber of Commerce' connecting the LGBT community and wedding industry professionals," explains Kimberly Vaughan, founder and CEO. "With an assembly of screened, qualified wedding professionals, all determined to provide services to the same select group with a standard of excellence in quality, we could very easily qualify as a chamber. We do more than 'list' businesses, we educate them through our 16-week LGBT Wedding Certification program and provide resources for wedding providers to connect, refer, learn and communicate with one another for the sole purpose of providing the highest standard of service specifically for the LGBT community. I am so happy to offer this great resource for same-sex couples who are planning a wedding and the businesses who are excited and poised to connect with them."
LGBTWeddings.com offers a professional website with many marketing opportunities, collaborative/connective back-end services and technologies available to its members.
The site also disseminates valuable industry tools and information. Members use the site as a resource, an icon of meaning, a marketing opportunity, an education, and a network.
"I have worked in the wedding industry for over 10 years and have been a proponent of marriage equality even longer than that," said Vaughan. "It has been heart-breaking, disappointing and frustrating watching couples reach out to businesses who are not only disinterested in their vows, but have been downright ugly about it. Watching the evening news, I decided that the best bridge between industry and same-sex couples would be an online resource where couples could meet qualified, screened, energetic, and welcoming businesses to make their wedding vision a reality; a place where same-sex couples can plan joyfully without hesitancy about or concern of whether a provider is excited about their marriage. On our site, our goal is to celebrate every day with a wedding."
LGBTweddings.com, a West Coast based company, has identified 115 U.S. cities to include in the 2015 launch.
