Katie and Joey’s Galleria Marchetti wedding is the best way I could of started my 2019 wedding season. These two are such kind, calm, and amazing people. Their wedding day was the perfection reflection of them as a couple. Joey & Katie, it was so clear to see that you are both so very loved! Not only that, but everyone you surround yourselves with is just as kind and amazing as you are! I’m so honored to have been a part of your wedding.
I started the wedding day with the girls at the Dana Hotel. The energy in the room was calm and excited. Katie and all of her bridesmaids looked SO gorgeous and the color Katie chose for her bridesmaids was PERFECT. The guys spent their morning relaxing at Joey and Katie’s apartment watching TV and chatting. Also can we take a moment for Joey & Katie’s rings?!
Their wedding ceremony was at St. Alphonsus Church in Lincoln Park. The doors outside of the church made the perfect backdrop for their wedding portraits and bridal party photos. Although they were married in a Catholic church, they broke the glass at the end of the ceremony for the Jewish tradition!
Katie and Joey had the most respectful and kind bridal party! And boy they looked good!
We took a few bride and groom portraits at the church and then we went to Galleria Marchetti for more portraits. Galleria Marchetti has such great options for portraits! Katie & Joey both looked SO good! Katie was such a pretty bride! Her BHLDN dress was made for her!
The wedding reception was in the Pavillion which is so pretty and such a great clean slate for a wedding. The speeches given by their maid of honor, best man and best woman were great! All funny and all focused on the amazing characters and qualities both Katie and Joey possess! The night ended with a full dance floor, busy bars, a photobooth and the horah!
