We chose to get married at the St. Francis Xavier Catholic church in Wilmette because Marina has been Catholic her entire life, her maternal grandparents were married at the same church and Brent immediately fell in love with the architecture. They were both impressed with the personality of the Catholic priest, Peter Wojcik, who often gives sermons there.
