Lauren met Frank during their freshman year of college at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (I-L-L!). With her outgoing and caring personality and his easygoing, relaxed style, they soon became good friends. By their junior year, it was clear to all their friends (and themselves) that there was something more between them. He officially asked her out and the rest was history. Post college, they moved back to Chicago and before long, Frank knew that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Lauren. At the top of the Little Beehive mountain in Banff, Alberta, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

The happy couple tied the knot on a beautiful September evening at the Peninsula Hotel in Chicago.

Lauren walked down the aisle in a gorgeous ‘Made With Love’ Sienna gown. Frank wore a custom navy shawl tuxedo from Balani Chicago.

They wanted their wedding to be classy and romantic with the city lights twinkling in the background. With lots of candles, gorgeous cream floral + greenery, they were able to achieve the romantic atmosphere.

They danced all night long, surrounded by their family and friends and it couldn’t have been more perfect!

Cheers to the happy couple! It was a pleasure being a part of your big day!
