The Small Details

In her search for an inclusive and welcoming provider in the wedding planning space, Crystal found a huge gap in the availability of such services. Love is Love - Weddings, previously branded as Bows & Knots Atl, was created to address and fill that gap.

Crystal’s vision is to provide a safe space for members of the LGBT community—across their multidimensional sex and gender identities—to holistically meet their pre/post nuptial needs.
