After 20 years of being together, Guadalupe and Blanca Nieves were finally able to tie the knot! As of October 6, 2014, it is now legal in Oklahoma to allow same-sex marriages. As soon as the law passed to allow same-sex marriages in Oklahoma, Guadalupe rushed to call me and book a date and time to get married. I happily agreed and told them that they would be my first same-sex couple that I'd get to marry in Oklahoma.
The couple traveled from the Dallas metroplex to marry on their anniversary! It was a cold chilly evening with 35 degree temperatures which guests had to come up with ways to stay warm by dancing in place and making jokes.
It was such a joyous occasion as everyone was thoroughly excited for Guadalupe and Blanca Nieves to finally be able to get married. It was a very emotional elopement. Tears of joy and disbelief flowed as the couple said their own vows to one another.
Love is love. It is an honor to be a part of history by marrying LGBT couples in the state of Oklahoma.
Review from Blanca Nieves: "Thank you so much for marrying us! We are so happy that we found you and we will always remember today. We will be referring our LGBT friends for you to marry them as well. Thank you for everything!"
"Two lives, two hearts joined together in friendship united forever in love."
