Both Gregory Goodman and Alan Kelly have a love of flowers, and each other.
They married in 2008 in the the brief window that same-sex marriage was legal.
“So we’re down there in Mexico in May and they decided to make it legal in the United States, in California. So we were like uh oh, we have to do a wedding here too,” said Gregory, owner of My Little Flower Shop.
“Well when our families found out that we got married in Mexico, they all went you can’t get married without us there,” said Alan.
“When the Supreme Court rules, it means many more people could be walking down the aisle, My Little Flower Shop
already has bookings for July and August.
“We are looking for probably a 50 percent jump in business, we are actually putting in a warehouse very soon just to get ready for it,” said Gregory.
My Little flower shop is expanding to try to keep up with demand, and some hotels in California are booking up as well!
