Chicago Same-Sex Wedding Photography: Stephen and James

I’m heartbroken about the shootings in Orlando, so I’m reposting Stephen and James’s wedding today, because love is love.  And love looks good on everyone.

Getting married one day after the U.S. Supreme Court declared same-sex marriage legal nationwide, and one day before the 46th Annual Chicago Gay Pride Parade, carries a bit of pressure!

Stephen (at left) and James were legally married on Saturday, June 27 2015 at Firehouse Chicago, a vintage building filled with rustic details.

This charming couple celebrated their legal marriage with their friends and family and lovable dog, Romeo.  Guests were asked to share in the blessing of their wedding rings, placed in a unique Mr. and Mr. dish.  The warm June evening invited guests outside for cocktails and a cigar bar, lit by a million Christmas lights.  I loved the vegetarian-friendly food by the Hearty Boys and the folks at Black Dog Gelato served up cool treats for dessert, while Style Matters kept the music going.   A huge thank you goes to Lisa Wandel at Liven it Up for being such an incredible planner, the day was smooth and flawless.  It truly was a beautiful evening!

I could not be happier to document Stephen and James’ love story, and present their wedding day here.  I love documenting love, and will continue to welcome any client who wants to share their story with me.

Stephen and James, I wish you nothing but continued happiness!  Congratulations, you’re married!!
