Lauren and Sergio’s wedding day began at Hilton Chicago, bringing an enthusiastic supporting cast of family and friends together prior to the wedding at Holy Family Church. Sergio and Lauren, one of my most laid-back couples, met each other in the lobby of the hotel where they exchanged first looks and sentiments away from the hustle and bustle and juxtaposed against floor-to-ceiling windows and grand marble pillars. After we traveled around the city – from the shoreline by the Adler Planetarium where waves crashed onto the sidewalk to Chicago’s iconic Lasalle Street Bridge, it was time for a one-stop ceremony and reception hosted at Saint Ignatius college prep, the bride’s alma mater. The gardens outside the church welcomed guests who mingled in spite of the rain, and the reception was filled with reminiscing and laughter. In the evening, the rain stopped long enough for us to grab couple portraits underneath the beautiful archway and on the football field, Chicago’s skyline in the distance as the perfect backdrop. Enjoy!
