Wedding Wednesday: As of June 1st, Same-Sex Marriage Recognized in Illinois

ILOutlineThumbIn the 25 days since the Same Sex Marriage Law officially took effect, Illinois has issued thousands of same-sex marriage licenses.  Many of whom, were couples wanting to convert their civil unions into official, recognized marriages.

For these couples, and all the citizens in the state of Illinois, this is certainly a time to celebrate love.  Many couples are now looking to celebrate their legal marriages with official ceremonies, vow renewals, honeymoons, or finally throwing that big wedding reception they never had.
