This month, Avant-Garde Weddings & Events is kicking off its Same-Sex Wedding Contest to help a same-sex couple experience the wedding of their dreams.

In honor of LGBT Pride Month in San Diego and the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling against Proposition 8, Avant-Garde Weddings & Events will plan a dream wedding for a local, deserving same-sex couple and provide the opportunity to have their wedding featured in the spring 2015 issue of San Diego Style Weddings Magazine.

“This month marks a historical milestone for the LGBT community,” said Jason Dean, co-owner of Avant-Garde Weddings & Events. “We all just want to know that we are seen and heard and that our lives and stories matter, and now we want to extend that opportunity to a lucky couple.”

San Diego resident and Co-Owner Jason Dean and his team created Avant-Garde Weddings & Events after realizing there was no other inclusive resource designed to help same-sex couples wed and fulfill their wedding day dreams. Jason has a track record for creating head-turning moments for couples such as parading a groom through the streets of the San Diego Gaslamp Quarter on an 8-ton elephant.

Sponsors for the Same-Sex Wedding Contest include: Raphael’s Event Works, Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico, Holly Ireland Photography, Rolls Livery and Oasis Sens in Cancun, Mexico.

The winning couple will also receive wedding planning services valued at $1,000, courtesy of Avant-Garde Weddings & Events, as well as local round-trip transportation in a classic Rolls Royce by Rolls Livery, three-night comp stay at the luxurious Oasis Sens LGBT-friendly all-adult resort, a comprehensive photo package by Holly Ireland Photography and discounted packages from contest sponsors.

To enter the Avant-Garde Weddings & Events Wedding Contest, visit Avantgardeweddings.com/contest/ and fill out the Wedding Contest official entry form. The deadline for submission is Dec. 31, 2014. The winning couple will be announced on Jan. 5, 2014.
