As I sat down to Thanksgiving dinner with my family, I felt incredible gratitude about what has transpired in California this year. It has been amazing to see same sex parents finally get recognition and equal rights. Since the Supreme Court rulings in June, gay couples have been flocking to San Francisco City Hall in droves to finally, officially, tie the knot. I was honored to attend and document the wedding of Dave Dean and Steve Lowinger recently, who were married after raising two sons and being a couple for 23 years. Their two sons, Luke and Sam were also present to witness their fathers’ union. Also present was a videographer from the New York Times, who captured Dave and Steve’s story beautifully.
