Ben & Maria
I was thrilled to work alongside Jennifer Claire Photography to document this charismatic couple. As soon as I found out this couple met while preforming in the opening ceremony at the 2012 London Olympics, I knew I was in for fun.
The groom got ready at an Airbnb with his closest friends and family from England (something I highly recommend to any out-of-town couples as an alternative to hotels) before making his way to Loyola's gorgeous Madonna della Strada Chapel. After vows & rings were exchanged, the newlyweds were greeted by a mariachi band that led the way to the lakefront reception (to the tune of the Beatles, of course).
I absolutely love how this international couple was able to blend their local traditions together to create a one-of-a-kind day that mixed British pop culture with festive Latin flare.
