Before they started, Brian and Cameron, both born and raised in Chicago, graduated from rival high schools. Later, they would learn they actually had a lot of friends and acquaintances in common and that they shared an interest in culture, design and nature. However, they didn’t actually meet until they both attended an art exhibition in May 2013 and one of their best friends, Garry, introduced them. Brian and Cameron both had a casual sense of humor and a fondness for live music and beauty, factors that quickly cemented their friendship. A couple months later, they were both invited to spend a camping weekend gateway in Louisiana, where they had a wonderful time with great friends. They ate delicious food, sipped tasty beverages and admired spectacular views. They started to share a beautiful friendship that was growing more and more. After experiencing such a wonderful time together, they knew they never wanted to be apart again. Although Chicago had always been home for both of them, Brian had visited the city of Paris as a student, and he always knew it would be the ideal place to pop the question! After the new American law legalizing same sex marriage passed, they got the little extra inspirational push they needed to take the plunge. But before they tied the knot, it was very important for them to have the approval of their families. Needless to say, everyone was excited about their relationship and encouraged their decision to marry! Today, they are madly in love with each other, and their fondness and devotion for one another continues to grow with each day that passes. Brian and Cameron spent a week in Paris at the end of the summer and wanted to capture their happiness. They proposed a few weeks later back home, and are expected to say ‘I do’ in May 2016.
