About this title

Synopsis:

First comes love, then comes marriageunless, of course, you're gay. But when San Francisco's mayor, Gavin Newsom, ordered City Hall to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on February 12th, thousands of gays and lesbians from around the world lined up to take their vows, inspiring other cities to follow suit. As intense public debate continues, We Do is an intimate portrait of these history-making weddings. A many-splendored thing, love is captured here in all its joy and diversity. Drawing on ceremonies from around the country, here are weddings both traditional and unconventional, whether the brides and grooms are in flowing white gowns, business suits, or blue jeans. The result is a touching album of happy couples, from the two lesbians who've been together 51 years to dads with babes in arms. A joyful celebration, We Do stands witness to the fact that we are all created equal in love.

About the Author:

Gavin Newsom is the mayor of San Francisco. He describes witnessing the weddings as "an extraordinary, exhilarating experience, which I think can change hearts and minds."

Amy Rennert is an award-winning writer and editor and a San Francisco Bay Area literary agent. She recently married her partner of 17 years, Louise Kollenbaum, the photo editor for We Do.
