imageThe gays who marry were treated to a wedding expo in Midtown on Sunday, even if they can’t quite get hitched here in Georgia when they are ready for the big day.

Despite that, Equally Wed – the Atlanta-based online same-sex wedding magazine – hosted the Love is Love Show at the W Hotel Midtown to showcase scores of wedding vendors undaunted by Georgia’s double-barreled prohibition against gay marriage.

imageThe expo was the first for Kirsten and Maria Palladino (second photo l-r), who turned their dream wedding into the motivation for their online magazine. After Sunday’s success, they hope to take the expo on the road to serve readers in other cities.

“We want to give gay and straight couples an opportunity to meet like-minded experts, from wedding planners, photographers and florists to caterers, venue owners and officiants, who can help execute the wedding of their dreams,” Kirsten Palladino says in a prepared statement.
