“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people comes something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.
It is so ordered.”
Justice Kennedy, Supreme Court
Michael & Daniel’s outdoor ceremony (which they shortened due to the freezing temperatures and biting wind) was everything a wedding ceremony should be. It was heartfelt, personal, and joyous. I don’t think there was a dry eye anywhere when Michael & Daniel publicly declared their love and commitment towards each other and became spouses for life.
We initially didn’t plan for lots of formal photos but got carried away with more and more family members and friends joining for more group photos before heading back inside for warm drinks and to cozy in front of the open fire.
How often do you get to photograph two people this attractive and this much in love?
Michael & Daniel – where to even begin? I’m so grateful you picked Vermont as your wedding destination!!!!
With much love & appreciation
