#LOVEWINS

In case you have been living under a rock over the past weekend, the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Obergefell vs. Hodges made same-sex marriage legal nation wide on Friday! That means that states cannot keep same-sex couples from marrying and must recognize their unions. Finally, marriage equality under the law! Love won in a big way! And it was a beyond beautiful thing! It was a momentous day in our nation’s history and an even more important day for civil rights, one that will be written about in history books for years to come.

I was watching CNN as the decision came down from the court and, I have to admit, I couldn’t help myself from getting my ugly cry on as the crowd singing the national anthem hit the ‘…land of the free’ line. Whew, talk about a long time coming! I went to sleep that night with a profound lightness and great joy in my heart, knowing that with love and equality for all, there is nothing we can’t do!

So, now, that we are all finally equal when it comes to marriage, can I make the suggestion that we stop calling it ‘gay marriage’ and just call it all ‘marriage’ across the board? Kay, thanks! #lovewins

Wedding: Erin & Ryan – Venue SIX10

This time of year in Chicago is one giant game of dodge the crazy weather. It’s oh so lovely and sunny one day, rainy and chilly the next. And as much as I wish every single wedding day could be as beautiful as can be, I am especially thankful when we get a gorgeous Chicago day for my non-local couples!  So, even though we had a fantastic rain plan on deck just in case, I was ecstatic that the weather was on our side for, New Hampshirites, Erin and Ryan and their Venue SIX10 wedding! They got the oh so pretty Chicago wedding they were dreaming of and they got to show off this wonderful city to all their guests! Wedding day dreams do come true!

Fleur + Layers of Loveliness Workshop

When Fleur announced their workshop collaboration with Layers of Loveliness, I was sold on it in a heartbeat!! I have been wanting to take a floral design class for years(!) and, at the same time, have wanted to further my recently attempted amateur calligraphy skills, so it was the perfect combination! Not to mention, Miya of Layers of Loveliness is so incredibly talented that I absolutely could not pass up a chance to learn from her! (Have you seen all the pretty hand lettering/calligraphy on THIS wedding?!) And with Janessa at the helm of floral design classes at Fleur, I knew SO. MUCH. PRETTY. awaited me! You guys, this workshop did not disappoint in the slightest! I walked in half asleep and bedraggled from a double header wedding weekend, but once we got going, I was wide awake and inspired, wanting to soak up every ounce of it!
