Intimate Rooftop Chicago Wedding: Kate & Katie
June 13, 2015
Kate and Katie met in the summer of 2008. Katie had just gotten out of the Coast Guard and moved back to Michigan. Kate was finishing up grad school. They were friends for many years before they started dating, but once they took their relationship to the next level, they knew their lives would never be the same.
At the time of their wedding, Michigan did not yet recognize same-sex marriages. It was important for the brides to marry in a location where it was legal. They chose a Chicago wedding because same-sex marriage was legal in Illinois at the time. Their venue, Orso’s Restaurant, was a perfect match – intimate, classic, and fun.
As newlyweds, Kate and Katie shared their advice for other same-sex couples: “Make sure your wedding day is a representation of you and your partner. Do what feels right and good.”
