Family Matters: 8 Adorable Wedding Family Moments

While we celebrate the union of two loving partners at a wedding, we also celebrate the villages that nurtured those partners—parents, siblings, children, nieces and nephews and chosen family. Here are some of the most adorable wedding family moments we’ve published this year:

Although I've spent the last decade riffing on everything from suburban politics to race in media, documenting love stories as content manager of GayWeddings.com definitely takes the cake. A proud alumna of Howard University's journalism program, I've written for Parents.com, The Huffington Post, xoJane and Essence magazine. When I'm not writing, I'm debating the merits of Drake, obsessing over frozen yogurt or plotting my next international adventure. I want to feature you on GayWeddings.com!
