What a goodie we’ve got for you all today! This fantastic collaboration between carolyn a. events, Twolips Boutique, and Storytellers Photography and Paperlily Photography is not only breathtakingly beautiful, but it highlights the work of the vendors behind Love Gives Way, an organization designed to help couples select wedding professionals who donate a portion of their proceeds to fight sex trafficking. What’s not to love?
From Stephanie of carolyn a. events: Love Gives Way was founded to give brides and grooms the opportunity to give back on their big day by using wedding vendors who commit to give a portion of their proceeds to the fight against sex trafficking. Vendors in various cities around the US partner with existing charities that work to restore and rebuild victims of the sex trafficking industry through various methods.
Last October we held a styled shoot and a party to officially launch in Atlanta, the city where we chose to start. This specific shoot utilized vendors from Atlanta and Birmingham, AL (another LGW city) and went with a lush rustic theme highlighted with gold/blush tones and vintage elements. Everything from the cakes to the hand crafted tables were provided by vendors dedicated to ending sex trafficking. Even our “bride and groom” are a real couple who choose to use LGW vendors for their wedding so that they could give back on their big day. To top it off we invited friends and the Atlanta wedding community to celebrate the night and the beginning of something great with us.
