Mary and Peter met right when the world started to shut down during the pandemic and then spent the year falling in love. Their wedding day was one for the history books! So much fun, excitement and LOVE. Their ceremony was held at St.James Catholic Church in Arlington Heights and their reception was at one of my favorite indoor/outdoor wedding venues in the Chicago suburbs: Pinstripes in Barrington. One of the most special things about their wedding was that Mary's brother who is a priest was the one that married her. Both Mary and Peter come from large families and it was soo much fun to be part of the family celebration.
After leaving the ceremony with bagpipes playing we headed to Al Larson Prairie Center For the Arts in Schaumburg to take wedding party portraits. The wedding party was definitely troopers for dealing with the heat and sun on the 90 degree day.
When we arrived at the reception at Pinstripes in Barrington an Irish band was playing for all the guests and that really set the mood for the night.
Surrounded by friends and family from near and far, it was a truly amazing day. Words can't say enough....so here are a few moments from their wedding day.
