Bernadette Coveney Smith

nation’s leading same-sex wedding expert

Every day I am grateful for my little family and the amazing couples that come into my life through 14 Stories. Being a great wedding planner is just as important to me as being a LGBTQ wedding advocate and educator.

I love really connecting with our couples and designing their wedding experiences.  We regularly plan over wine or cocktails, laugh a lot and stay in touch after the wedding is over.  I want this to be a fun experience for you, and if it’s fun for you, it’ll be fun for your guests.

I wrote a few books on LGBT wedding planning, built a gay wedding planning app, and am the expert blogger on and also the Huffington Post. I’ve been featured on the Today Show, CNN, in The New York Times and more and I regularly speak about LGBT weddings around the country.

When I’m not working, I love to travel, have long, leisurely amazing meals, and I absolutely love date nights!  I’m also very active with the Family Equality Council.  But enough about me – tell me about you!
