Official Opinions: Chicago civil union ceremony a hit!

Click on the photo to see more Stitely pictures from the ceremony!

Yesterday, over 30 homosexual couples gathered in Wrigley Square in Millennium Park in one of the first civil union ceremonies performed in the state of Illinois.  (For more information see Wednesday’s post). Stitely Entertainment is so pleased to have been able to provide a string quartet to play before the ceremony and during the reception.  I was lucky enough to be there and watch this joyous moment in history.

By and large my memories from this day are just overwhelmed with the sense of joy and hope, but mostof all love.  People of all shapes, sizes and colors were represented in yesterday’s ceremony, and they came together for one reason- to openly demonstrate and legally recognize their love for their partner, now wife or husband.

Their supportive family and friends, often wearing a celebratory purple, were there to witness their joy, as were the bystanders that lined the fence along the Square who cheered them on.  To me, the most beautiful sight was the children of the newly-weds and their friends. These kids were just precious! They ran and played all over the square, dancing to our string ensemble and tossing rose petals with wild abandon, as I saw one little flower girl doing.

Stitely Entertainment is so proud to be part of yesterday’s historic ceremony!  Everyone seemed to really enjoy our string quartet, who serenaded them as they

arrived and as they celebrated their new unions at a reception. Stitely Entertainment supports marriages and unions, and we celebrate the love of all people.  As Governor Quinn said in his opening remarks to the crowd; “This is indeed a historic day, a special day that all of us in the land of Lincoln can celebrate…There are all kinds of families in Illinois, but we are all the family of Illinois.”  We could not have been happier to share our talent with those who so richly deserved their long-awaited legal union.
