Star Wars wedding featured on Offbeat Bride!

The ceremony ends with a kiss - under the watchful eye of Darth Vader.
I'm so excited, I can barely stand it!!! I just found out that one of my weddings was featured on Offbeat Bride!

Karrie and Matt's wedding - from the ceremony to the reception - featured Star Wars and LEGOs. Their awesomely geeky wedding was one of my favorites. Yes, partly because of the theme, but mostly because they're just so darn awesome! 

Here are a few of the photos by the wonderful TrueLee Photography. But for the whole deal, check out the feature on Offbeat Bride by clicking HERE.

Incredible Star Wars cake, created by the chef at Starved Rock Lodge!

Luis & Dan's Incredible Wedding Photos - with Bacon and Eggs Socks!

This past fall I officiated Luis and Dan's wedding ceremony at Uncommon Ground (known as the "Greenest Restaurant in America.")

They were lucky enough to hire the amazing Hilda of Angel Eyes Photography. Not only is she always fun to work with, I knew there would be amazing photos. Boy, was I right! 

Be sure to check out her blog post about the wedding. Don't you just love those bacon and egg socks? 

Here are a few photos in the meantime, but be sure to go to the blog for more!

If you need a photographer for your wedding, Hilda is fantastic. But you can already see that from her work. And did I mention how much fun she is??

Support Marriage Equality in Illinois!

Happy New Year! 

And the best possible New Year's wish may come true very soon. Illinois legislators may be voting on a bill to finally legalize same-sex marriage - possibly this week!

Please, please contact your state senators and representative right now to voice your support for marriage equality. 

Not sure who to call? Not sure what to say? Visit the Equality Illinois Marriage Equality page for sample phone scripts and contact information for your legislators.

Go! Let's not just cross our fingers and hope it happens. Let's MAKE it happen. Now.
