As fate would have it, Lola and Hollie were married the weekend the supreme court ruled that marriage equality would be the law of the land. Together 9 years, the couple runs a videography company called Lollie Videography.
Hollie proposed in May 2014 during a trip to Jamaica, and the couple rented a house to host their June wedding on Cape Cod. Because the newlyweds have provided videography for so many weddings, they knew just what they wanted for their own. Say the brides: “We DIY’d everything.”
Hollie and Lola did not have a DJ, a planner or a florist. “We did it all ourselves with the help of our giant (and creative) bridal party.” Friends they’ve worked with provided the photography and video coverage, and they made bouquets and boutonnieres out of dried lavender, burlap and twine. A neighbor played guitar and sang during cocktail hour and their nephew ran their playlist while the maid of honor and best man served as emcees.
Because Lola wanted to look at Hollie for support while she walked down the aisle, the couple decided that Hollie would go first. Hollie was escorted by her Godfather and Lola by her father.
Lola’s Favorite Moment: Our first look. Seeing my bride in her gorgeous gown. We had kept all the details of our attire from each other to make this moment magical and it was.
Hollie’s Favorite Moment: The energy in the air. We rented the home for the week and stayed there with our bridal party and family. The day of our rehearsal dinner we were all listening to the news and celebrating the (marriage) law overturning. Everyone was so excited for us, it was incredible support.
The couple’s friend Julie—Lola’s best friend since they were babies—was their wedding officiant. She pronounced them “Wife and Wife” then turned to Lola and said, “You may now kiss your bride.”
Wedding Song: “I Would Die 4 U” by Prince.
The brides wouldn’t change a thing about their perfect wedding and have this to say: ”It was great having everyone come together to support us. We had 100 friends and family and there was not a dry eye in the house during our ceremony.” Because their wedding date came one day after the Supreme Court ruling, they add, “There was something in the air, everyone was so proud of us and happy that we were making it official.”
