Fletcher Whitwell and Greg Flamer met, as many in their twenties do, at a bar in Chicago in 1998. They moved in together the next year and started their lives together. In 2011 they welcomed their first child, followed by another one three years later. But after nearly two decades together, they fought to have their love recognized by the state of Nevada when they served as plaintiffs in a marriage-equality case that led to the Supreme Court’s affirmation.
The two joined their friends and family at Crimson, a nightclub at the Red Rock Hotel and Casino for their long-awaited nuptials. They were married on a platform over the pool, surrounded by family and friends and with a friend officiating.
