Residents of Chicago, get ready. On Thursday, April 10, 2014, the Chicago History Museum is hosting a same-sex wedding event called One Love. In conjunction with Heather Vickery of Greatest Expectations event planning, One Love aims to be an elegant celebratory event where gay, lesbian, trans and queer couples planning their wedding can mingle with an intimate collection of wedding vendors in a luxurious setting. Every guest will be welcomed with open arms.


As a guest, you’ll be able to taste samples from four exclusive caterers, and beverages and cocktails from fantastic LGBT-focused sponsors (like Halsted Vodka and Egalite Wine). You’ll also be able to meet and network with vendors like planners, photographers, officiants and more.

With music, drinks and the city of Chicago’s top wedding vendors, One Love will be the perfect place to sip on a fancy cocktail, sample delicious food and plan the modern wedding of your dreams.
