Lilli Black (owner): Sweetly Paired is a full-service wedding planner serving Colorado, and all couples!
QB: Why are you interested in working with Queerly Beloved couples?
LB: The Sweetly Paired planning team works with ALL couples. We want to help couples who are using the Queerly Beloved platform to have a fun, stress-free planning process, and never have to ask a vendor if they will accept them. That's a question nobody should have to ask.
QB: What do you love about the couples you work with?
LB: We love how different each of them is! They all have different visions, views, styles... each wedding is and should be reflective of the couple. We love helping them bring that to life!
QB: If you could describe your work in 3 words/feelings/phrases, what would they be?
LB: We are Zilla-preventing, event-designing, party ninjas. Does that count as 3 things?
QB: What does pride mean to you?
LB: I think Pride is about becoming comfortable in who you are, what you do, and what you want out of life. I think that can apply to all facets of life, not just sexuality. I am a proud bisexual woman, who is a wife, a wedding planner, and a mom of a rediculous mix of dogs. Pride doesn't stop at one aspect of my life.
QB: What steps have you taken to make your company more queer-friendly?
LB: We have always accepted all couples and our contract, website, and communication language is inclusive.
