Alexandra & Raymond

We’re so proud to introduce you to our featured couple, Alexandra and Raymond.  

This stunning couple met at North Central College in an accounting class. According to the bride, “We became fast friends and eventually, more than friends. The rest, as they say, is history. Our story is built on a foundation of undying trust, plenty of laughs, and ever present love. We both can genuinely say that we married our best friend. We could not be happier to embark on the wonderful journey of marriage together and take on everything that the world has in store for us.”

The venue for their wedding celebration was Cantigny Park, in Wheaton. This spectacular setting highlighted the beauty of nature and the love these two share.  The bride chose the timeless Francoise gown by ÉLYSÉE. This floral baroque lace dress has  thousands of hand-embroidered beads and paillette sparkles over delicate French chantilly lace. The sculpted baroque lace train completes the classic and elegant look.
