Just Married: Samantha Grady, Class of 2011

After tying the knot with Alexander Pietrasiuk, Samantha Grady is now Samantha Grady Pietrasiuk! She admitted with a laugh that she “can’t let go of the ‘Grady’ just yet.” 

The two were married at Old St. Patrick’s Church in Chicago on Saturday, August 15, 2020. To make sure that their wedding was as safe as possible, they opted to have an intimate ceremony with only family and Samantha’s bridal party present—including Samantha’s sister and fellow Bosque alumna, Lexi Grady-Haitsma (Class of 2013). The couple was able to include other guests during their special day through a live stream of the ceremony. Two of those guests who tuned in remotely were Ms. Hart and Ms. Maniaci. 

“We had the best time, and we are so happy,” Samantha expressed. 

The newlyweds call Chicago home and don’t plan on making any big moves at the moment, both enjoying city life for now. Samantha earned her Master of Arts at Loyola University Chicago in 2017 and now works at a nonprofit called Catholic Extension. Her husband, who goes by “Al,” works as a CPA.

Congratulations to Samantha and Al! We are wishing them all of the best.
