THE MURPHY WEDDING // loie + domenic

It is their differences that made them a match. Her love of cooking. His art of perfecting an espresso. Her detail-orientated personality. His impeccable listening skills. Her preference to stay in. His inclination to go out. Loie and Domenic blended into each other’s lives filling the voids seamlessly ensuring a perfect match together.

On a beautiful day in Chicago, they vowed to always support one another and to make forever a reality. So often they give to others, but on their wedding day they were the center of attention. Their love shined brighter than the summer sun, and their friends and family celebrated their commitment, love, and promise to each other filling the day with even more joy.

Loie and Dom – Since our first meeting last October, I have been smitten with you two. You are beyond sweet, kind and loving, and the world is far better with you two together. Thank you for trusting me to document your first day as husband and wife. I wish you the best as you fall deeper in love and navigate the years ahead hand-in-hand!

Loie and Dom completed medical school just a few weeks before their wedding. They were excited to celebrate not only their marriage but also their match on their residency at Northwestern.

Dom is originally from Canada. He moved to the U.S. to attend undergrad at Cornell, and then medical school at Northwestern. While Canada will always be his home, Chicago is the place where he fell in love and married Loie.

Dom has been fascinated by architecture since he was a child. His father shared that many years ago, on a family trip to New York, Dom was practically giving an impromptu tour to tourists as he spouted off facts about the buildings and their histories. It was this love, that made him fall in love with the Murphy for their reception venue.

Loie and Dom originally wanted to get married in a garden … so they had Christine bring the garden to them.
