Fernanda & Alex's Wedding Joliet & Elgin, IL

Fernanda & Alex were wed at St. Joe's Chapel/University St. Francis in Joliet, followed by a beautiful reception at the Highland Loft in Elgin in July. The day started with the bride getting ready at her house in Joliet. Traveling a short distance to their ceremony at St. Joe's, they were joined by the groom and groomsmen. The couple shared the ceremony in both English and Spanish, exchanging rings and vows, followed by a private exchange of vows after the ceremony in a private room.

The entire bridal party and both families gathered at the Highland Loft in Elgin for the long-awaited reception. The couple had taken dance lessons leading up to their wedding day, showing off their newly acquired skills during their first dance as husband and wife. Dances soon followed between Fernanda and her father, and Alex with his mother.

Congratulations, Fernanda & Alex. It seemed like such a long time from your engagement session at North Avenue Beach to your wedding day, but the wait was well worth it!
