Amy and Toni are the kind of couple that just smiles. All the time. And it's contagious. Watching their families and friends celebrating on this Thursday evening made all of that smiling finally make sense...they are just truly that happy and truly that in love. And those emotions rub off onto anyone and everyone around them.
These brides wanted to spend a night with their closest humans...despite the fact that some of the most important people in their lives didn't approve or show up at the wedding because of the fact that the couple is gay. Toni, our black bride, was married to a white man, and her family was fine with that. But after she divorced, she later fell in love with Amy, and it has caused a rift in her relationship with her parents. Despite this, the couple stayed true to themselves and celebrated the love that they KNOW is right for them.
