Fate brought them together and, ultimately to me.  Nearly 10 years ago Greg called the restaurant I worked at wanting to plan a surprise party for Fletcher.  The two had not yet moved here, but had their eye on the city.  I fell in love with them instantly, and while my career took me elsewhere before the actual event, I popped in to meet the men who would eventually become my two grooms!

Greg and Fletcher met the old fashioned way...at a bar in Chicago in March of 1998.  Fletcher was a baby at 23 years old, while Greg was 25.  After some convincing by Greg’s friends to actually date a nice guy, we quickly realized how much we had in common from love of travel to musical tastes to love of family.

They moved in together in 1999 in Chicago.  After traveling all around the globe, it was time to start a family.  They welcomed beautiful Hudson Rae in 2011; followed by the dapper Sawyer Matthew in 2014.  They are the loves of Fletcher and Greg’s lives.  On their behalf, Greg & Fletcher served as plaintiffs in the Nevada marriage equality case to secure rights and dignity for their family.

Now that marriage is legal across the nation, Greg & Fletcher want to share and celebrate their many years of love and commitment with all of their friends and family.  From New York to Mississippi to Chicago and Las Vegas, our grooms can’t wait to have all of the “families” they love together in one place to celebrate their love story.

To commemorate their engagement, and make sure that their brood got comfortable in front of the camera, the family of four spent the day posing for engagement photos and family pics with the owners of AltF Photography, John Michael Cooper and Dalisa Cooper.  The images are a darling look at their life, their love, and their little ones.  So precious!

With a wedding set for Spring of 2016, expect to see more of these two on my blog!  

Leave them a little love below, and keep an eye out for their wedding!  It is going to be filled with succulents, roses, romance, and just a little touch of entertainment!

Always...
