It's not often that a couple chooses to get ready together in the same room, but I can't imagine Sean & Steve doing it any other way.  When I joined them at the Galleria Park Hotel in San Francisco, they were relaxed and laughing together.  As I watched them get into their tuxedos, sit side-by-side to put on their shoes, then help each other with their ties, the c[...]

Lisa and Greg are self-described foodies, so it's no wonder[...]
