Ultimate LGBT Wedding & Anniversary Expo in Southfield April 12

Posted: Updated:
LIVONIA, Mich. (WJBK) - Pride Source Media Group, publisher of Between The Lines, will host its 4th annual Ultimate LGBT Wedding & Anniversary Expo from 12 to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 12, 2014, at the Southfield Civic Pavilion (26000 Evergreen Rd., Southfield, MI 48076). The wedding expo moved to a larger location to accommodate more couples, vendors, presentations and activities.

"Even though we'll have to wait a little longer for more couples to legally marry in Michigan, more than 300 couples were recently married in just a few hours," says Jan Stevenson, co-publisher of Between The Lines. Thousands more will marry once the window of opportunity opens again - and it will! The day is coming when we will see full marriage equality in Michigan. And we're ready with cakes, fashions and everything needed to plan a great event," she explains.

Open to LGBT and friends, The Ultimate LGBT Wedding & Anniversary Expo will feature local businesses that provide wedding services to same-sex couples. A couture bridal fashion show, presented by B. Ella Bridal , will feature daring styles modeled by local gay rights supporters, including Ferndale Mayor Dave Coulter, Alicia Skillman, Beth Correa, Garnet Lewis, Aaryn Richard, David Temple, Jeremy Moss and more. Guests will enjoy free wine and hors d'oeuvres tastings, dancing, dozens of exciting raffle prizes and demonstrations and displays by the area's top venues, florists, jewelers, entertainers, restaurants and so much more.

Stevenson says vendor space for Ultimate LGBT Wedding & Anniversary Expo is sold out provided there are no cancelations. For more information, please visit www.btlweddingexpo.com

Tickets are $10 ($15 at the door) with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Michigan Marriage Challenge, a fund created to raise money for the legal fees and expenses in the DeBoer v. Snyder case.

    It's not just the styles that have changed with weddings over the years -- it's also the technology. Disposable cameras used to be the norm, but now there's an even simpler way for the bride and groom to get some candid photos of their special day.
