LGBTQ+ Styled Shoot - Maggie Sottero Designs
Maggie Sottero Designs, one of the most recognized bridal gown manufacturers in the world, announces its exciting LGBTQ+ Styled Shoot in collaboration with Morgan and Joel. Maggie Sottero Designs values inclusivity and diversity in every sense and wholeheartedly supports love for ALL. Throughout this project, the team at Maggie Sottero Designs showcased LGBTQ+ couples and partnered with an LGBTQ+ ally photography and videography team to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.
“Maggie Sottero Designs shares in efforts to uplift and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. Our many initiatives in supporting love for ALL, in all forms, speaks to our dedication to all brides and their partners,” shares Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Christina Blanchette. “Our company is committed to designing wedding gowns inspired by ALL love stories… LOVE is LOVE, and we will not rest until all are respected and celebrated. We are committed to diversity and inclusion and continue to improve the representation of marginalized communities.”
As an inclusive-driven company, Maggie Sottero Designs acknowledges the importance of allyship every day and aims to share inclusive content every month, with extra emphasis and appreciation for these communities during celebratory months. While this project is debuting during Pride month, it has been in progress since early 2022. Maggie Sottero Designs is devoted to showcasing real LGBTQ+ couples in marketing efforts, blogs, and communications to brides and retailers alike. The company is also dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQ+ community through supportive initiatives, such as webinar series that help coach boutiques on inclusivity to better advocate for and provide service within the community. Maggie Sottero Designs wants ALL brides to feel welcomed and comfortable with celebrating them and their love stories.
“There is a huge lack of queer representation in the wedding industry, and we are so stoked to be part of the movement changing that. We would love to see the industry change and show that love can come in so many different ways,” say Morgan and Joel.
