Find your perfect team of Austin LGBT-friendly wedding vendors here!
I remember when I started seven years ago, the wedding industry was filled to the brim with beautiful cis-het white folk. Blondes. Brunettes. Redheads. In fact, in some sections of the industry, that’s about as diverse as it gets. I remember how in Hawaii, people told me they would book me because I had bi-racial couples on their website. Let that sink in: less than five years ago, people just needed to see bi-racial couples to feel included. It still blows my mind. Now-a-days…it’s totally normal, at least in most circles. So here we are, eyes turned to the new mountainous climb: finding LGBT friendly wedding vendors. Believe it or not, Texas is still filled with hateful bigots. *gasp* whaaaaat? Yep, I said it. People still experience anxiety when trying to book vendors on their wedding day and there are still people who avoid it.
I want to help with that.
I pride myself in being one of the top LGBT photographers in the state. I’ve worked hard to help clients feel welcome into the tribe. I wanted to create a list of vendors that you could contact with confidence. You can email any of these vendors (and mention to them you found them here, pretty please!) without fear of being rejected, simply because of your orientation.
I’ve either worked with these vendors directly or looked up reviews to confirm they are a solid choice. While I’m clearly not responsible for anyone being spontaneously bad at their job, I’ve done a bit of research and legwork to help you out!
I’ve also included polyamorous friendly wedding vendors, where confirmed. Vendors may be clonky around poly folk, but we’re used to it, right? Let’s make that the Everest climb.
