Celebrating Scott + Matt’s wedding was truly joyful. They’ve been engaged for nearly two years, waiting for a break in their residency schedules to kick off their marriage with friends and family in Scott’s hometown of Chicago. They are an incredibly organized pair, who are committed to the service of others. They surround themselves with the best of the best every day, and it was a privilege to coordinate their spectacular Chicago wedding.

They are kids at heart, which makes them incredible pediatric doctors, but it also creates a sense of joy that’s infectious. These two love Disney (they celebrated part of their honeymoon at the park in Orlando!), and as such, they surprised each other with sweet gifts the morning of their wedding -- Matt gave Scott a Mickey “Husband” t-shirt, while Scott surprised Matt during their first look with “Groom” wristbands for the park.
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour and dinner 80 floors above Chicago, while Matt + Scott shared their first dance and cake as husbands.
Before the dancefloor opened, Scott’s father gave a toast in which he quoted Justice Kennedy’s majority ruling from the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges case, signed into law on June 26, 2015, just 4 years and 4 days before Matt + Scott’s Chicago wedding:
Matt + Scott danced the rest of the night away with their closest family and friends, capping off the night with a spectacular view of the Navy Pier fireworks.
Congratulations, Matt + Scott!
