Bride waits for wedding at Fourth Presbyterian Church Chicago, Illinois

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!

Chicago wedding couple thanks videographer


Whenever there’s a TV show I want to watch, I mark it down on the calendar and I get excited for that date and time to arrive. I think same day edits are very similar. I love same day edits. I think it’s the anticipation of waiting for that moment when the video will show on the big screen in front of hundreds of people. This day was no exception.

Starting early in the morning, we worked behind-the-scenes, editing footage throughout Sarah and Jeff’s entire wedding day. When it came time to showing the wedding trailer to their guests at the reception, they were amazed. After the trailer showed, many people (complete strangers) walked up to me in tears, hugging me…asking, “How did you do that?” Same day edits are amazing and you should consider including it in your big day.
Thanks to Michael Rastall Photography for sharing this photo of Sarah + Jeff’s reaction while they watched the Same Day Edit:
