40-couples, gay, lesbian and straight, unite in Chicago

Yesterday, 40 couples — gay, lesbian and straight — were married in a group wedding ceremony at Unity in Chicago and I was lucky enough to be in attendance. Here’s a selection of photos from yesterday’s event marking the beginnings of gay marriage across Illinois. Congratulations to all the newly weds!
