Submit Your Wedding

Would you like to see your wedding featured in Love Wins California? If you are an LGBT couple who live in California, or were married here, we look forward to hearing from you. Whether you had the most elaborate of weddings or one that was spectacularly simple, we’d love to consider your special day for publication in an upcoming issue! The deadline to submit Real Weddings for our Summer/Fall 2017 issue is April 15, 2017.

Submission Instructions

If filling out the form below, in the “Photos: Dropbox or other file-sharing URL” please include a link to a Dropbox or other file-sharing service, containing a selection of 20 to 50 of your favorite photos from your wedding.

We want the images that best capture the couple and all the unique and special details of their wedding, as well as pictures that illustrate the work of all the great local vendors. Good choices include: the food and drink, favors, cake and/or dessert table, paper materials (signs, menus, programs, table numbers, place cards), flowers, tabletops, decorations, the wedding party, transportation, things that are uniquely Texas, and the couple in a meaningful moment, doing something fun, or photographed in a way that really shows off the setting or venue. Please note that we do not feature photos of the couple before their wedding day or getting dressed/ready, and we don’t include pictures shot with unusual angles, lenses, or colors (black-and-white, sepia, etc.).The photos submitted don’t have to be hi-res, although we will require the hi-res (300DPI or greater) images if your wedding is selected.

Due to the large volume of submissions that we receive, we are not able to individually respond to each one. Thank you for your interest—we can’t wait to see your unique day!
