» Inside WeddingWire: DC Capital Pride Parade

It’s officially Pride Month, and WeddingWire was happy to kick off the celebrations in the nation’s capital by walking in the 39th Annual Capital Pride Parade!

WeddingWire staff, along with LGBTQ-friendly couples and wedding professionals, showed support for same-sex couples and gay marriage supporters throughout the nation by walking in the Capital Pride Parade. Our team was also joined by Kathryn Hamm, President of GayWeddings.com. The parade was just one of a number of celebrations hosted by Capital Pride of DC, including poetry readings, a 5K, bike party, music festival and more!

Capital Pride is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of the LGBTQ community and its partners through educational events, entertainment, community outreach, and celebrations of diversity. The Capital Pride celebration as we know it now traces its history back to the first LGBT festival in Washington, DC in 1975. The tradition has continued, and only gotten stronger.

We are thrilled to have been involved in DC’s Pride Month celebrations. The WeddingWire team was at Capital Pride in both 2012 and 2013 to help festival-goers learn about and join the Wed We Can campaign, but walking in the parade was a new and humbling experience for all of us.

Thank you so much to all the WeddingWire couples and Pros who walked with us in the parade! Check out some of our photo highlights below.
