Love Wins

by Southern Coastal Weddings


When Kwesi Blair and Jackson Shafer celebrated their commitment ceremony at The Ford Plantation, they never could have guessed that the Supreme Court would soon make marriage equality official nationwide.  All the same, they set the bar for same-sex unions with their “Bow-Tie Boys” theme and heartfelt outpouring of support from their guests.
