Married: Tricia + Joe

Pin It A few weeks ago, we drove up to the Windy City. Reggie's niece was getting married, and so we ventured north along with Reggie's Mom and brother, Mike, who would be walking Tricia down the aisle the very next day. We arrived sans problem at our hotel and got ready for the rehearsal. As soon as we pulled into the St. Luke's parking lot, I knew it was going to be beautiful. This was one of the most stunning churches I've ever seen! Gorgeous wood-work, colorful stained glass, higher than heaven ceiling, and a perfectly long aisle for our perfectly sweet niece! I took photos just for fun, as she wanted me to enjoy the day with our family. Tricia and Joe, we are so happy for you! Such a beautiful couple, inside and out. Hope you enjoyed Mexico! Here was their Sneak Peek!

Isn't this church absolutely stunning? Now this is an aisle!

The Groom holds the ceremony program with care, just before the nuptial mass begins.

The Bridal Room was perfect for getting ready.

Time for the gown!

Last minute hair and makeup, it's almost time to go!

Gotta love the light streaming through her veil, so soft and beautiful.

After being a bit nervous all day that everything would go smoothly (which it absolutely did!), the Bride is ready...

Love the big grin on Joe's face as they meet at the altar!

The cantor had such a wonderful voice.
Later during the ceremony she sang Ave Maria, that song always gets me,
and this day was no exception!

At last, they exchange vows and rings!
When Tricia said "I Do!", Joe breathed a sigh of relief and said, "Thank you!" It was so cute!

In the Catholic tradition, it is customary to place a bouquet of flowers
at the Statue of the Virgin Mary during the ceremony.
Here, Tricia and Joe made there way to the side of the church and their smiles!

Lighting their Unity Candle

Kiss the Bride!


Stunning red roses just beg to lie on a piano, don't you think?

There was time between the ceremony and reception so that guests could rest while the bridal party was whisked away for photos around the area.
Yes, yes, here is the cake!

First Dance

Tricia and Joe were so adorable, and all eyes were on them.

Congratulations, Tricia and Joe! Wishing you both the best, and a lifetime of love and laughter! See you soon! xo
