Third annual one love wedding showcase

Harris and Hernandez, of Phoenix, are planning to marry in spring of 2014. Organizer Jenny Harding had been working in the wedding industry for 20 years when she decided three years ago to start the expo geared towards same-sex couples. "It started right before marriage equality," Harding said. "I heard stories from couples who had been together for 20 years, of vendors turning them down, asking questions like, 'who's going to wear the dress?' and things like that," she said. "I wanted it to be a party, where they could come, get ideas and be inspired."
