Welcome to the wedding portfolio page. Couples who have gone through the process to confirm their wedding date on the Basilica's calendar are now ready to begin their portfolio for the Basilica staff.
Your Wedding Portfolio requires eight steps to be completed in a specific time-line relative to your wedding date.
