Purple Tutus, Two Brides and Their Adorable Baby Girl: Sonja & Elizabeth’s Wedding
Sept. 26, 2015
Sonja and Elizabeth met through a mutual friend. Elizabeth was visiting Chicago and Sonja was in town for a wedding reception. Elizabeth was set to meet up with their mutual friend when Sonja mistook her for someone else, went downstairs to meet her, gave her the most amazing hug and asked if Elizabeth wanted to get a drink. During their conversation, they discovered the fateful mistake, but it was too late. At breakfast the next morning, Sonja said she knew Elizabeth was going to be her wife. They started dating after the trip.
When Sonja entered the candle-lit room, Elizabeth told her their story, then poured some of Sonja’s favorite wine from a customized bottle that said, “Will you marry me?” She handed Sonja a glass and got down on two knees (she was too nervous to propose on one), then asked her to marry her.
When choosing a venue, Elizabeth searched the internet for “gay friendly” and found the historic and quaint house. It was in their price range and perfectly sized for their party. The site manager was also very sweet.
