LGBT Wedding Expo showcases gay-friendly wedding vendors
ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- An event in Asheville this weekend is showcasing LGBT-friendly wedding vendors. The LGBT Wedding Expo at the Doubletree provides a welcoming place for gay and lesbian couples.
One event organizer says with House Bill 2 and similar measures making headlines, this event is as important as ever.
"There's a lot of things right now happening politically that make gay and lesbian issues a hot point, and I think its a really important time for us to celebrate the things we've accomplished and really take the time to reflect on how far we've come," said event coordinator Sara Henry.
The event featured guest speakers and presentations on wedding trends and customs in the gay community.
