  • We are getting married in May at the Frontier Culture Museum in Stanton. Our caterer is Hanks BBQ in McGayesville and our photographer is Sandro Gomez. All three vendors have been awesome, supportive and open in helping plan our big day. I specifically asked if they were comfortable working a same sex wedding before meeting with them all and was met by nothing but positivity!
