We love Portico!
We also want to celebrate the team for their amazing competence and inclusiveness. As lesbians who wanted nothing more than to have a big, gay party with our beautifully queer chosen family, we had some anxiety about choosing a spot where everyone would feel totally welcome — but the folks at Portico were phenomenal from start to finish. It meant so much to us to feel so at ease and to see the same ease in our loved ones.
In short — do it! Your wedding will be freaking amazing, joy-filled, easy as pie, and lush with gorgeous foliage!
Portico was perfect for our micro wedding!
