SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) – The fact that the issue of gay marriage is in legal limbo didn’t stop hundreds from attending the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) wedding expo  in Southfield .

As Newsradio 950’s Kathryn Larson reports, despite Michigan’s gay marriage law snag, it’s not stopping  metro Detroiters from planning to “get hitched.”

Although they have gone through a commitment ceremony they are looking forward to making it legal with a marriage made in Michigan:

“That’s why we didn’t get married the first time (referring to the one day window in Michigan law) – plus we wanted our anniversary to be on the same June fourth that we had our commitment ceremony, we don’t have to memorize two different … dates,” said Waters.

Just under 100 vendors, including photographers, bakers, caterers,

florists, and wedding event planners, took part in the expo, designed to cater specifically to the gay community.
