Never even having visited the state of Washington, they took the leap and embraced the opportunity with open arms. In this episode, we go behind-the-image of their wedding day. The city made them feel so welcome, and was so affirming of their love for each other, that after they said “I do,” they knew they had found their new home and made the move out west.Where others see hate, #weSEAlove.
