Allie and Matt Married at St. Francis Xavier church. They then went onto the stunning Cantigny Gardens for their bridal party and wedding photography portraits and held their wedding reception at Hotel Bakers Rainbow room nestled along the Fox River in the western Chicago suburb of St Charles, Illinois.
