ABOUT EQUALLY WED MAGAZINE
Equally Wed magazine and EquallyWed.com are products of Palladino Publishing, LLC. Equally Wed was founded in 2009 by Kirsten and Maria Palladino, a recently married couple offering a fierce combination of talents in journalism and design and were unable to find what they needed when they were planning their own nuptials during 2008 and early 2009. With Kirsten’s editorial background in magazines and newspapers and Maria an entrepreneurial owner of graphic and web design firm, the duo decided to launch their own magazine on a subject they’re extremely passionate about: same-sex weddings.
