Kody and Jared infused their timeless ceremony with pride. Their rainbow wedding celebrated love in all the details. Their wedding party dressed in elegant forest green, and, for a classic touch, they rode to the reception in a converted trolley. Under black, Vera Wang attire, both men sported pride socks. The couple cut their elegant white cake to reveal colorful layers. Kody and Jared’s rainbow wedding married a classic style with pride and color. It was “timeless with a touch of rainbow,” they told Equally Wed.
The couple married in Asheville, North Carolina, where Kody proposed to Jared two and a half years ago. They said their vows at First Congregational United Church of Christ. Both men walked down the aisle, Kody with his mother, Jared with his cousins. The couple invited all of their immediate family, but of their four parents, only Kody’s mother accepted the invitation. “Our friends truly became our family and acted as a serious support system for us,” the couple told Equally Wed.
The two grooms advise other LGBTQ+ couples to “keep your wedding simple. Invite those who mean the most to you.”
