Love is Love. It's as simple as that. Asheville Rainbow Weddings 
celebrates with you, the right to choose to love & marry whomever
 makes your heart sing. Love is love in all its beautiful expressions. ~ Martina

 The nook of a quiet enchanted forrest, surrounded by books at the champagne bar or in your freind's colorful garden, we can do it!

Or, perhaps a wedding that is quaint & traditional, modern & unconventional, in a setting sophisticated or replete with down home charm?

For those daring types how about tying the knot floating in a balloon or zipping through the mountains? I am up for almost any adventure! This is your day.

I would love to hear your ideas & plans and assist in creating a ceremony that is perfect for you and your love.

Oh, and.... congratulations! ~ Martina
