We Now Interrupt This Program – To celebrate the Supreme Court ruling, today

I’m interrupting my NSS coverage to add my voice to the giant “Hooray!” being heard ’round the world, on the momentous occasion of the Supreme Court ruling striking down DOMA as unconstitutional.

In honor of this further step toward genuine equality in our country, here are just a few designs that celebrate marriage for all…

L2 Design’s Collective’s cards are light and fun and happy.

Finally, here’s a gorgeous invitation suite and wedding collateral from wife-and-wife team Morgan Calderini and Arley-Rose Torsone, of Ladyfingers Letterpress. They designed their own wedding identity system, but not before looking around to see what was available to them elsewhere, and finding there were few beautifully-designed options for same-sex couples. In fact, according to their Web site, it was this exploratory search for wedding stationery that put them on the path that lead to Ladyfingers Letterpress. Now, the couple designs stunning stationery and invitations for all sorts of brides and grooms. (Invitation suite photograph by Natalja Kent.)

Congratulations (belatedly) to Morgan and Arley-Rose.

And, to all of my friends and family who are members of the LGBT community—I can’t wait to see the invitations!
