They began working with the wedding community, allowing vendors who supported marriage equality to proudly showcase their services or venues to same-sex couples.

Dancing With Her is a wedding magazine, blog and directory dedicated to celebrating same-sex and queer couples in love.
In 2016, Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell got engaged. And, like many newly-engaged couples, the first thing they did was head to a large magazine store in search of wedding inspiration. What they were presented with were images of happily smiling brides and grooms – couples that were exclusively heterosexual – a selection of media that left them feeling unrepresented. And so, Dancing With Her was created.
In November 2017, Dancing With Her Magazine was launched and now reaches 40+ countries around the globe. These days, the website shares the real stories of couples as well as offers advice to those people who are planning their own wedding day.
