How Vecoma Celebrates Pride!

June is National Pride month, a time to celebrate and honor the LGBTQ+ community. At Vecoma at the Yellow River, we take immense pride in being a venue that embraces love in all its forms. We want to take a moment to express our gratitude to the LGBTQ+ couples who have chosen Vecoma as the setting for their special day. We also want to share some helpful tips and inspiring ideas for those in the LGBTQ+ community who are planning their own unforgettable wedding.

Jenifer and Alison

Jenifer and Alison, a remarkable couple, celebrated their love amidst the vibrant fall colors. In a beautiful display of individuality, they each chose unique bridal dresses and carried their own distinct bouquets. The bouquet toss at the end of the night became an exciting competition, as all of their bridesmaids (and bridesmen) had not one but TWO chances to catch the bouquet and potentially be the next ones to say “I do!”

Alex and Anthony

For Alex and Anthony, creating a memorable grand exit was a priority. They opted for a sparkler grand exit, which provided a stunning photo opportunity as they walked through a tunnel of light. Additionally, they added a personal touch by having fun with their guests, drawing letters and creating playful moments. As a symbol of unity, they also incorporated a sand ceremony into their wedding, blending two different colors of sand together to represent their unbreakable bond, just like two individuals joining in marriage.

Jessica and Sheena:

Theme weddings can infuse your special day with enchantment, and that’s precisely what Jessica and Sheena did. Being devoted Disney fans, they decided to model their wedding after their favorite movie, “Beauty and the Beast.” Their celebration was a delightful blend of romance and fairy tale magic, capturing the essence of their love story.
