Watch: Katrina & Maricela Celebrate Their Love in Florida

One of my Facebook friends recently got married and honeymooned in Florida. Yesterday, Katrina shared her wedding video with us. She and Maricela held their marriage celebration in their home state. I loved the entire video but was especially touched by the family support both women had on both sides. I also loved this part of their vows: “I promise to give you the best part of myself and accept you the way that you are.”

Congratulations ladies and wishing you a lifetime of love!

Love and Marriage Goes Together Like

One of the reasons I started this blog was to place a spotlight on women of color in love. I’ve always been inspired by love. I believe that when two people are able to accept and love each other, it is a reason for celebration. Their love is one more way of creating light in a world where so many things are wrong. Equally Wed‘s documentation of this couple’s beautiful wedding day certainly put a smile on my face. Five years after first meeting on MySpace, the couple tied the knot in Long Island, N.Y. Congratulations to Gracie and Rosanna! See more pics and read their story at
