Vowed and Proud

Dreams finally become a reality for same-sex couples here in Florida, as it becomes the 36th state to legally recognize gay marriage.

After ending a drawn-out battle over same-sex marriage, group wedding ceremonies were scheduled across Florida last Tuesday as couples rushed to make their relationships legally binding. Group weddings were planned in Florida’s larger cities including Fort Lauderdale, Key West, Miami Beach and right here in Orlando!

Mayor Buddy Dyer officiated the wedding ceremony at Orlando City Hall where 47 couples exchanged their “I Do’s”. This moment was a long time coming for some couples that had been together for 10, 20 and 30 years. Some even traveled from Daytona and as far as Tampa to take part in this special ceremony. All of the couples were invited back to The Veranda at Thornton Park for a “Vowed and Proud” reception to commemorate this historic day, and Puff ‘n Stuff Catering was honored to be chosen as the Orlando caterer to sponsor the event.

The Veranda was buzzing with excitement and happiness as newly married couples gathered with friends and family to celebrate their love and lifetime commitment. Delectable hors d’oeuvres including our signature Crab Cake Towers and juicy Bacon Wrapped Scallops were passed and a toast of champagne was raised to honor the newlyweds.

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 not only marks the turning point in marriage equality, but brings with it basic human rights that have been long denied to same-sex couples. “Couples are not just making lifetime commitments to each other, they are finally granted greater legal protections, the same rights as any other couple,” says Damian Keenan, one of our Special Event Wedding Planners.

As the third most populated state in the country, it may come as a surprise that changes in marriage equality are just taking effect in Florida. With Florida, 70% of Americans now live in marriage equality states. Cheers to same-sex marriage progressing!
