kim + annie . the wedding

kim + annie were married on the 10 year anniversary of their very first kiss... does it get any sweeter? They've lovingly celebrated with three other commitment ceremonies in the past. Kim writes; "a domestic partnership in West Hollywood, domestic partnership with the state of California, and thanks to the trail blazing Gavin Newsom... married in San Francisco in 2004 after spending the night in the rain...that one of course was nullified." 
I'm so proud to have shared this day with these two... I've photographed commitment ceremonies in the past; but being this was a legal same sex ceremony; there was just a beautiful & exciting energy to the day... 
after all, love is love. 
Congrats kim + annie; I'm so incredibly happy to have met.























Kim describes "that all though we've been together for a long time...this feels different. We've always thought that people who said that were odd, but all the planning, the decisions, the preparations, the vows...the loving energy and support from friends and family...it just  somehow feels different. It just feels like we are married - which is for us more than committed. Whether that is the ritual or the public validation...we aren't sure, but we like it and we just don't want it to be taken away again. But if it is...we'll do it again until it sticks."
