"I am blown away by the attention to detail and relevance to today (even citing social media presence) that Equally Wed has infused into their LGBTQ+ certification course. It's a compilation of everything that I (as a queer nonbinary wedding vendor) have wanted everyone at the weddings I'm working to understand, and then some, and a diving into history and equality that I didn't even realize I didn't know. Kirsten breaks it down in a kind and non-intimidating way, but also holds tight to her values and anti-discrimination convictions. I'm taking away so much, and feeling ready and hopeful for the future of the wedding industry. This course is not only a resource, but a must for anyone who wants to serve their clients as an ally, safe person, or member of the LGBTQ+ community."

A commitment to understand & celebrate
Elevating the Industry
There are no real barriers to enter our industry. While this allows people from all different walks of life to become a wedding and event professional, it opens our industry up to potential misunderstandings, accusations of discrimination and even lawsuits. Our LGBTQ+ Weddings Certification is the differentiating component for our industry. It demonstrates to your clients that you have made a lifetime commitment to understand and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community as well as demonstrate your commitment to equality and inclusivity.LEARN HOW TO GET CERTIFIED IN LGBTQ+ WEDDINGS
