I have been so busy with the busy filming weddings, I haven’t kept up with other news. This spring I completed a gay wedding certification course taught by the 14 Stories Gay Wedding Institute and am now the area’s exclusive local gay wedding expert.
The Gay Wedding Institute certification course focuses on the nuances and details relevant to the gay wedding ceremonies and weddings. The course covers language, terminology, laws and policies, gay wedding trends and traditions, wardrobe, invitations, marketing and much more. “Mary showed true commitment to understanding the ways wedding professionals need to be sensitive to the unique needs of same-sex couples. She took the time to complete homework to ready her business to truly be equipped to meet this emerging market,” said Bernadette Smith, founder and President of the Gay Wedding Institute.

The 14 Stories Gay Wedding Institute is the nation’s first same-sex wedding research institute and think tank. The GWI was founded in 2009 by 14 Stories founder Bernadette Smith, who leads workshops for wedding professionals around the U.S. and Canada on the nuances of same-sex weddings. Bernadette is the author of the book Gay Wedding Confidential and developed the world’s first app for gay wedding planning. Her expertise has been sought after by the Today Show, the BBC, New York Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, NPR and much more.
