Some 40 same-sex couples tied the knot on Thursday – at least as much as that’s possible in Georgia – during Atlanta Pride’s annual Commitment Ceremony.
The touching non-denominational event unfolded in a banquet room at the W Atlanta Midtown. While the shift to an indoor event was a change from recent years of holding it outdoors at Piedmont Park, hosting the event at the Midtown hotel returned it to its home of several years ago.
The “come-as-you-are” atmosphere meant a diverse collection of outfits, from traditional tuxedos and gowns to business casual and even the more casual tank tops. But one tradition stayed put: The couples noshed on wedding cake after the ceremony.
