since next week marks 6 months since our wedding, i wanted to celebrate with a week of pictures! i took you through my planning process with the "wedding details reveal" series and i'm so excited to bring things full circle with pictures from the day. thank you in advance for indulging me and hope you enjoy the photos!
our ceremony took place at one of chicago’s oldest churches, assumption catholic church, and while i was very excited to walk down the aisle of a traditional church, i was anxious about the tradition of someone giving me away. my dad passed away in 2007 and wanting to honor him and his memory, i decided to walk down the aisle by myself.
before approaching altar, i stopped at my mom’s pew so she could lift my veil, which was a really emotional moment for us. for 24 years, i was an only child, until my mom had another baby. our flower girl was actually my little sister, ella!
during the homily, our priest read a letter james and i wrote to our family and friends, which expressed our love and gratitude and explained why it was so meaningful for us to have them there to celebrate with us.
stay tuned for tomorrow's post on the wedding fashion!
