Some of you might remember a little something called #PopUpRomance that Pop Wed Co & I teamed up on at last year’s PRIDE parade/weekend during the DC MEET Market. And just in case you don’t know about it, check out my recap of last year’s event here.
Well Maggie & I are super pumped to let you all know that #PopUpRomance is indeed having a sophomore year, but this time we are teaming up with GayWeddings.com & Wedding Wire as part of their #WedWeCan movement, to host one HUGE pop-up vow renewal that EVERYONE is invited to attend and take part in.
#PopUpRomance2.0 will have SO much more going on this year, all going down the morning of June 13th, at the Embassy Row Hotel – and you’re invited (encouraged!) to attend. We’re going to have flowers, desserts, a DJ, and a sign making station so that everyone can make their own awesome sign to have during the parade. Last year Rose & Nicole ROCKED the parade with their “just RE-married” sign and I can’t wait to see what people come up with this year!
WeddingWire has built an event page where you can find out lots of information, including a schedule for #PopUpRomance2.0:
- 10:00am-10:45am : Enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks and mix and mingle with local Wedding Professionals, couples, and President of GayWeddings.com, Kathryn Hamm.
- 10:45am-11:15am: THE MAIN EVENT! A Pop-Up Vow Renewal with Pop Wed Co!
- 11:15am-12:00pm: Continue to mix and mingle and make your “Just Married!” sign! When the event concludes, we invite you to take part in the festivities around the DuPont Circle area.
- 3:00pm: Meet us back at the Capital Pride Parade Wed We Can staging area (location to be announced at the event) and get ready to march! *T-shirts will be provided!
Personally, I am SO VERY excited to get to renew my vows with Andy (as we approach our FIVE YEAR wedding anniversary this November!) at the 40th anniversary of Pride! I REALLY hope some of you are able to join – I hope to see you there :)
