When Carlyn and Brittany decided to get married, they broke the long-held lesbian stereotype where one partner forgoes the dress and wears a pantsuit. These gals made their special day a double dress wedding.

Both ladies wore white gowns, veils and had their families walk them down the aisle. Since they had a double dress wedding, the resulting images by Jeff Newcum, prove to be that much more awesome.

Implications - Gay marriage has come a very long way in roughly a half century. The sight of a lesbian couple both wearing white gowns is visually compelling and breaks with the aesthetics of a marriage ceremony. Bravo to Carlyn and Brittany on opting for gowns.
