Champaign Art Theater and Orpheum Museum Wedding | Kendall and Thomas

Today I want to tell you the story of Kendall and Thomas’ wedding day. Sometimes you meet people and after you spend a little time getting to know them, you realize they are the nicest people in the whole world. That’s exactly what happened when I finally met Kendall and Thomas in person. At first impression, you might think they are very different. They’re both creative, but one of them is a quiet (and maybe a little shy) visual artist and the other is outgoing and loves the theater (I’ll let you look through the photos and guess who is which… haha). However, after you spend some time with them and see how they are together, you realize they are both incredibly kind and generous. And you can see that reflected in the family and friends who surround and support them, because the people who love them are a mixture of other incredibly kind people and people who are the self appointed ferocious protectors of them. And so I found myself in Champaign, Illinois making photos with these beautiful men and meeting their families and friends and coming to admire all of them. It didn’t hurt that we share a love of all things artistic, and that there might have been some Buffy references at their reception, and that Kendall’s grandpa might be Superman. Congratulations Kendall and Thomas, you are amazing together!
