The first-ever Lehigh Valley LGBT wedding expo will showcase more than 40 of the area’s LGBT-friendly wedding-services businesses.
The free event will take place from noon-4 p.m. Oct. 5 in the blast furnace room at the ArtsQuest building in Bethlehem.
Mary Lisicky, chair of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce’s LGBT business council, emphasized the importance of putting on such an event.
“My wife and I got married last summer. We were very fortunate to have a venue and work with businesses that were supportive of us. But not every couple is so lucky,” she said. “That’s why this expo is so important. It’s not only a celebration of the passing of marriage equality in Pennsylvania, but the vendors who are attending all share in the belief that all love is equal.”
A variety of wedding services will be in attendance including photographers, restaurants, venues, florists, bakeries, officiants, travel agents and jewelers.
There will also be a grand-prize raffle giveaway of two round-trip airline tickets sponsored by Equality Travel.
The expo is presented by the LGBT business council, American Hairlines and the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce.
