Christina + John Wedding / Biagio Events Chicago Wedding Photographer

12/24/13

This wedding was so special for Jason and I to photograph and be a part of. Christina is my second cousin, and she married her best friend – the father to her adorable little girl Piper, and her love for the last 8 years. Christina and John are so adorable together. They still steal looks from one another like they’re two teenagers in love, and it’s so refreshing to see and be around. Piper is their sweet baby girl, and it was very emotional to see their family come together. Piper made the prettiest and cutest little flower girl! They got married at the beautiful St. Paul of the Cross in Park Ridge, and then had their reception at Biagio Events in Chicago. Christina and John are romantics, and Christina loves Titanic (and Harry Potter!), and planned many themes and parts of their wedding around that. My favorite details were the table decorations, that family spent many hours carefully painting the table names all named after different locations and parts from Harry Potter. Jason and I loved being a part of this wedding, and can’t wait to share the photos. Enjoy!
