The #IDOMARATHON is the brainchild of Kacey Frierson and Chwanda Nixon
As a lesbian couple we cannot just go to any courthouse to get married , not even our own local courthouse here in Georgia, so we have decided to take a cross-county, cross-continent journey of love, commitment and equality to the states that we can legally get married in!
The #idomarathon was named one of the Biggest Same-Sex Weddings of 2013 by Rolling Out Magazine AND one of 21 Amazing Couples That Said "I Do" by Out Magazine AND featured as the cover story for the GA Voice (April 2014)!! #honored
