We’ve been so excited about Kristine & Ben’s wedding day! Ever since their stylish downtown engagement session, we have known that this Loyola wedding was going to be elegant and chic. Kristine went to college at Loyola University Chicago, and would sometimes attend mass in the breathtaking Madonna della Strada chapel. In many ways, this day was a homecoming. It was an opportunity for Kristine to return to her alma mater, and for these two families and cultures to come together. This Loyola chapel is not only a gorgeous indoor spot — it’s walking distance from Lake Michigan and all the natural beauty of the beaches and parks nearby.
There are beautiful touches of Kristine’s heritage throughout the day. We started the day at the luxurious Warwick Allerton before heading up to Loyola for a ceremony full of Filipino traditions. Also, did you know that Ben likes to dance? Well, get ready! This groom managed to bust a move during almost every part of the wedding day! He led a cool crew of groomsmen to the ceremony, where he showed off his skills! And no reception would be complete without some public displays of…improvised choreo?? Take a look at how much fun this happy couple is having at their reception. There’s so much joy that they literally cannot contain themselves. These candid dance moments led into a HALL OF FAME bouquet toss that you MUST see!
Enjoy this magical day, and join us in congratulating Kristine & Ben!
