About the bride
Katherine has her BA in Political Science and International Studies from Loyola University Chicago - four months of her undergraduate time were spent in Rome, Italy! She has her M.Ed. from Loyola as well in Elementary Education. Currently, she is employed by Valley View School District 365-U as an ESL teacher for two different elementary schools.

About the groom
Sean has his BA from Loyola University Chicago in Political Science. Currently, he is employed by the city of Westchester as a Firefighter/Paramedic.
When he's not busy helping the people of Westchester, Sean enjoys Notre Dame and Bears football, traveling with Katherine, working out/running, trying new pubs/restaurants, bull dogs and dressing up as Santa Claus.
How we met
Sean and Katherine met at Loyola, when Sean transferred there and was placed in the apartment across the hall from Katherine and her friends. Katherine was curious about the tall, dark and handsome Irishman that moved in and they soon became good friends. After spending more and more time together and realizing all the random things they had in common, Sean and Katherine began dating and have been happy together ever since!
