16 May Deli + Fei // Fourth Presbyterian + Chicago Boat Wedding
Deli and Fei saw our wedding cinematography work online and immediately fell in love. Deli lived in Canada while Fei lived in Chicago. Their wedding ceremony was at The Fourth Presbyterian Church in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Fei loves architecture and the Chicago skyline. So, it was only fitting that their wedding reception was held on the Gypsy Spirit Yacht, which took us through Lake Michigan and the Chicago River.
We were also able to stop at many Chicago landmarks for a wedding photo session: the Chicago Cultural Center, Millennium Park (with Cloud Gate; where the two met), Michigan Avenue, and the South garden at the Art Institute of Chicago.
One of the interesting challenges to creating this wedding trailer was that both English and Chinese speakers would have to appreciate the trailer’s storyline and message. The couple will have another wedding reception in China, where this wedding trailer will be shown. So, we made sure to incorporate some English and Chinese in the trailer, blended with a musical score about oceans. The perfect fit!
