Elana and Marlene

Some of you might remember Elana and Marlene from earlier in the year when Mike Kepka and I spent time with them to document their families journey to marriage equality for the San Francisco Chronicle. (To see the video click here.)

This week I had the awesome opportunity to be at the court house as they exchanged their vows and were legally married by Oakland's Mayor Jean Quan. In true Elana and Marlene fashion, the ladies promised to remember to close the dresser drawers after getting ready, to wash all the dishes, and to be by each others side until the end of time.

It truly has been an honor to document the journey of this loving family.

To Elana and Marlene I say thank you. Thank you for opening your life to us and sharing your love for each other with the world.
