This past spring, more than one couple were happily married all on one day during a pop-up wedding!
Equal Dignity Pop Up Nuptials (EDPUN) celebrate all families joining in affirming, LGBTQIA+ inclusive, free civil ceremonies. Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania’s top wedding industry vendors donate time and services to give couples a big-budget marriage ceremony at no cost.
With core values rooted in justice, acceptance and celebration of all people, EDPUN curates beautiful pop-up weddings and provides free civil ceremonies to all couples and families to join in legal unity.
Aishwarya was one of the brides that day. She shared:
“Being able to have our families present physically was incredible. The details of the ceremony were also incredible, very personal. We had gotten legally married a week before via zoom, his entire family was 5 minutes late and missed the entire “ceremony” and my family all joined via zoom but it was such a short ceremony. I was so disappointed and felt as though our wedding was going uncelebrated.”
Maura, bride and sister of Rebecca Mulholland at RAM Floral, shared:
“My husband and I never wanted a big wedding. So when the opportunity arose to have something beautiful but small and personal, how could we say no? My favorite part was my husband. But besides him, I would have to say the ease of it all. We could focus on each other, and all the adventures we are going to have together.”
