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 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.
