“As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, you don’t just need to feel safe — you need to feel celebrated,” Jonathan told The Knot. “For years, we planned to get married at Palace Resorts in Mexico. When we got engaged, the owner said he couldn’t marry us because we’re two men and it goes against his morals.”
“That was a sucker punch to the gut,” he added. “We decided in that moment that our wedding was bigger than us. It’s our wedding, but it isn’t just about us. It’s about the LGBTQ+ community.”
“We’re really making a point to make this wedding very loud on purpose,” they continued.
Jaymes then revealed where they are getting married: “We knew we could go to the UNICO Hotel, because on social and in their marketing, they have shown us that we’re welcome there. When we first started talking about having our wedding there, they were excited for us, which is what everyone’s wedding is supposed to be.”
