Steve + Wade have been together for quite a while, and actually had a civil ceremony in Vermont back in 2001. So when they went to get their marriage license from Champaign County, it was easy peasy and it was retroactive back to 2001. Pretty cool! They had a nice, short ceremony on the Sycamore Peninsula at the University of Illinois Arboretum, followed by a portrait session around the grounds. They brought their sweet chocolate lab along for the pictures too!
