The Beatles’ refrain Love, Love, Love could have been the theme song for Brenton Gumminger and Pharamond Guice’s wedding this spring. “We wanted to be modern and hip, since we’re untraditional anyway, being two grooms,” says Brenton with a laugh. “The resounding theme was love—our love for each other and the love we share with everyone at our wedding.” At each table at the reception, they featured a photo of someone who has championed LGBQT recognition—“a kind of homage,” says Brenton. Their witty cake topper, found on Etsy, also offers a new take on the traditional. Even the traditional couple photo by Jodi Vander Woude shows a unique and fun spin.

A & L Floral Design used a more masculine palette of dried magnolia leaves, eucalyptus, and hydrangea for the bouquets, boutonnieres, and floral centerpieces.

Brenton, a dental hygienist pursuing a master’s degree, and Pharamond, an academic achievement professional at William Jewell College, are looking forward to their delayed honeymoon to the south Caribbean. “We can’t wait!” says Brenton.
