Marriage equality, heck yes we can! And celebrating the commitments of couples both gay and straight, heck yes we can do that, too. Having recently acquired GayWeddings.com, Chevy Chase-based WeddingWire is joining in on the Capital Pride fun in a pretty big way this year—by hosting a gigantic vow renewal right before Saturday’s parade. Together with Pop! Wed Co., GayWeddings.com president Kathryn Hamm and WeddingWire will be leading couples from all over the area in reaffirming their love for and commitment to one another at Dupont’s Embassy Row Hotel. The event is taking place June 13th on the hotel rooftop between 10 AM and 12 PM, with the vow renewal beginning promptly at 10:45 AM. Couples of all sexual orientations are invited to attend.

From there, you can start staking out a spot for the afternoon parade, which kicks off at 4:30 PM at the intersection of 22nd and P Streets, NW. #WedWeCan and Happy #PrideWeek, everyone!

The Embassy Row Hotel; 2015 Massachusetts Avenue, NW; 855-893-1011.
