Laura Leigh Abby first began blogging about lesbian wedding planning in 2012 while planning her own. She and wife Samantha, with the help of supportive family, expert vendors and a cinematic venue, executed the wedding of their dreams which included some offbeat details, including a blush Vera Wang gown and custom-made emerald couture. Abby shared details of her wedding in The New York Observer and Cosmopolitan, her nuptials were also featured in New York magazine and the couple appeared in season two of Bravo TV s hit series Newlyweds: The First Year. She is the founder and publisher of 2brides2be, an online resource dedicated to celebrating the beauty that is a 2Bride wedding.
