One of the most well know superstitions is that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. Boy did ((Alissa + Chris)) have a chance to experience this!
With the forecast of 90 percent rain and a whole lot of wind, ((Alissa + Chris)) had more ‘luck’ than they knew what to do with. Thankfully the rain subsided and the sun came out to make their day, the perfect day for a wedding.
The morning of the big day, Alissa found herself in her childhood home surrounded by loving family and best friends. This only erupted in joyous tears from all those helping prepare her for the big day.
As Maria Harte Photography captured the moments, she could feel the love and warmth of Alissa’s family as she got ready and among Chris and his groomsmen. Maria says, “Anyone could see these two complement each other in the best way; with the love and support they have from those around them. Alissa and Chris’s love story is one that most college going kids dream of, as college sweethearts.”
The couple met while attending Law School. From the moment they were together they knew this was the real thing, and have been together ever since. They celebrated their love by marrying at the Loyola Chapel, a fitting backdrop to their story. The day was complete with the weather finally cooperating for their reception at The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus.
