The guests who participated in the wedding revealed that the couple was delighted and the whole ceremony was wonderful and magical. They even said:
“The ceremony was such a beautiful start to the night. The setting was perfect. It was something Melissa and Linda wanted early on. It was as perfect as they envisioned.”
Although it has already been three years of Etheridge and Wallem’s marriage, the love between them doesn’t appear to be less. The pair shows no sign of a split.
Even though they haven’t revealed any child plan yet, we suppose they will do that soon. Since both Ethridge and Wallem are independent and successful women, they stand as a strong inspiration to all the lesbian girls out there. We wish them luck.
