The church was filled with friends and joy. Abby and Christian sat perpendicular to the congregation, and their love and excitement for each other and marriage was evident. Father Petri’s voice filled the room as he reflected on the most basic and fundamental truths of our faith, and of marriage. Like the first paragraph of […]

Amy headed to the hotel lobby with Claire and her bridesmaids. The limo to the church had arrived. Everyone climbed on board. It wouldn’t be long now. Patrick was already at the church waiting for the start of their nuptial Mass. Kyle was there with him. Amy sat with Claire’s mom, Victoria, and as they […]

Libby took a seat on a chair in the middle of the dance floor. Stephen stood ten paces across the room. His eyes locked on his new bride. Men from his Catholic fraternity huddled behind him. Libby’s eyes shone with the brightest twinkle as she looked from her husband to his friends. The room was […]

Mr. & Mrs. Racz

The excitement and joy from the nuptial Mass still clung to the air. We hid from the hot sun with Roxio and Alexis on the side of the church. The small strip of shade provided great relief and a moment’s rest. Alexis held in his hands a box. It was a long rectangular box, and […]

The once bright sun now hid behind the early evening clouds. It was much darker than usual for 5 o’clock, the type of darkness that covers everything just before the rain. The bridal party rested in the bridal suite right behind the courtyard in which we stood. Rain began to slowly drop from the heavy […]

Mr. & Mrs. Sielaff

The pews in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception are filled with family and friends. There is a comforting familiarity in the air. This chapel, here on the campus of Mount Saint Mary’s, had served as a spiritual home for Gloria and Sean when they met here as college students. Now, it provided the location […]

Mr. and Mrs. Harris

The past few months had been filled with planning. Dresses and suites were selected. Invitations sent. Seating charts completed. Bouquets and boutonnieres assembled. All necessary boxes on the wedding to-do list were checked, and now family and friends had arrived in town for tomorrow’s wedding. But despite all of these preparations, something extremely important went […]

Mr. and Mrs. Davis

The dinner hall radiated a soft, golden light. Friends and family worked alongside the bride and groom for about a week to transform the space. Soft, white drapery adorning the walls added to the feel of dreamy romance that accompanies a wedding day. The savory smells of homemade cooking and Nini’s lasagna drifted in from […]

Mr. and Mrs. Sardegna

John offered his arm to his only child, Carolyn. The room waited to welcome them. Family and friends gathered in the church and around the live stream. A deep breath. The moment had arrived. Together they took their first step down the aisle. As guests turned, they were greeted by the image of the beautiful […]
