A New Era

Without regard to the state’s law, on Friday June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled that same sex unions have a constitutional right to marry nationwide. 
A new ERA began.
The 5-4 opinion written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy will stand as a landmark in civil rights law, culminating a struggle for same sex equality for marriage under the Constitution.
In the past, we have worked “mocked-up” same sex weddings who chose the Caribbean as the venue for their celebration. For us, at STEM Events, these were weddings of couples, regardless their sexual preference, who love each other and want to get married and exchange their vows in front of their loved ones.
We are very happy with these ruling, but mostly we are very happy for same sex couples who finally are treated equally. 
Now, these couples can actually say their vows for real, they can say “I DO” and not feel that they are “playing to get married”.
No more mock-up weddings, let us say YES to real same - sex weddings! Let us embrace the opportunity and show the beauty of this Island for their celebration as we have done with all of our couples in the past.
