If you’re looking for proof that true love still exists, this Instagram account dedicated to lesbian weddings will make your heart swoon. Whether it’s from hope, envy, or both, there’s no denying that scrolling through Dancing With Her’s feed of diversely gorgeous, happy couples will surely have you daydreaming of your own nuptials, single or not.
This IG account isn’t just a library of photographs though. Dancing With Her is a full on wedding magazine based overseas, dedicated to celebrating women in love from all over the globe.
The story started back in 2016 when founders Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell got engaged. In an excited haste to plan their big day, the two went to a large magazine store in their area to look for inspiration. What they found instead, however, was an underwhelming lack of representation, as they were presented with materials that only featured heterosexual couples. Following this disheartening realization on what was supposed to be a joyous start to their walk down the aisle, Tara and Arlia couldn’t help but think of the millions of LGBT women feeling as left out as they were.
Hence, Dancing With Her came to life a year later. More than stories about momentous proposals and dreamy weddings, they also provide industry insights and wedding inspiration for those yearning to start their journey towards happily ever after. Not only that, but their platform presents a hopeful example of recognizing the need to depict all kinds of love in media.

Alternatively, their sister magazine Dancing With Them, launched just this year, has taken to demonstrating all kinds of love accross the LGBT spectrum. Further proof that everyone, regardless of gender, race, or age, deserves a full-fledged fairytale.
