Hundreds of couples gather for first-ever LGBT Wedding Expo

Hundreds of same-sex couples getting ready for their big day got started on their wedding planning Thursday night.
Organizers say 54 vendors filled the Radisson in Wauwatosa for the first ever LGBT Wedding Expo, including Diamond Nexus Labs, which featured its \"Love Equally\" Collection, a ring collection created especially same-sex couples

The LGBT Chamber of Commerce hosted the event.

Kelly Marie Perez- Cruz and her fiance, Leslie Schwartz were engaged a month ago.

Perez-Cruz and Schwartz will get married in September 2016.

\"I look forward to it, I look forward to being married and calling her my wife,\" said Perez-Cruz.

With a year and 10-months until the big day, there's plenty to discuss, but Perez-Cruz and Schwartz say one detail was settled pretty quickly-- their honeymoon at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL.

The LGBT Chamber says legalizing same sex marriage is expected to generate more than $34 Million in the state.
