If you have not already heard, we are huge advocates of the new organization, STAND UP, Business Professionals for Marriage Equality.  Yes we know in part it’s because I, Anthony, am the Co-Founder of the movement, but I will tell you, I had my entire team of planners right there supporting me through the creation of this organization.  
We are wedding planners.  We help couples from all over the country get married about 40 weekends a year.  At Liven It Up Events, we believe that no matter who you are or who you love, you should have the RIGHT to be wed.  That is why not only am I dedicated to this cause, but so are the planners at Liven It Up!
The organization is for business professionals who want to put their business on trend with supporting marriage equality.  The huge out pour of support we have had already is astonishing.  It’s so easy to become a member that will receive to show your alignment with the cause.

Wedding Professionals STAND UP for Marriage Equality
August 8, 2012

I have to share this story.  After President Obama came out and supported Gay Marriage, I had this little idea that the Chicago Wedding Industry should do something.  I had this vision of mobilizing the masses and create a viral video that would show our support.  We are the ones who make weddings happen every weekend so why should we not support the cause.

It was a larger turn out than I ever thought!  We had over 100 wedding professionals come together to create the first STAND UP video.  From there, I knew it was more than just a video, we had to do more.

I was already working with Cher Garrett of Loft on Lake & KGA Garrett & Associates and together we wanted to do more!  Now, we have created an online platform for business owners & business professionals to become members and show that they STAND UP for marriage equality.

One little idea has turned into an organization that is spreading like wildfire!  After launching the website on July 24th, 2012, we have reached of over 25,000 people on Facebook and thousands of views on YouTube already!  We are hoping to get more members and sponsors to make an impact on creating equality for all!
