Event Overview:

Capturing Love: The Face of Modern Couples and Emerging Traditions
Panel discussion, Q & A, book signing & reception

Join Kathryn Hamm and Thea Dodds, the authors of The New Art of Capturing Love: The Essential Guide to Lesbian & Gay Weddings, as they discuss their journey creating their groundbreaking book; the limitations of traditional notions of gender roles in wedding rituals and photography; the ways in which understanding the dynamics of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) couples can open new doors for straight couples; and how the mainstream industry is receiving this niche market. The context of understanding emerging traditions in weddings will also include Kyle Mihalcoe of WeddingWire, Inc., nation’s leading marketplace serving the $100+ billion wedding and events industry, and Bree Ryback, the founder and editor of Capitol Romance, a popular blog offering unique and nontraditional wedding inspiration in Washington, DC. The discussion will be moderated by Jay Brown, Director of Foundation Program Strategies at HRC.
