When I walked in the door, camera in hand, Rachael’s Mom looked at me, covered her mouth and gasped. “Oh my gosh!”, she said. “You make the most beautiful videos, ever! Each one I watch makes me cry!” What an amazing feeling and a wonderful welcome to the day. Little did I know that Rachael’s mom would play an integral role in the storyline development for her daughter’s wedding trailer. I guess as any mother of the bride knows, the morning of your daughter’s wedding is always filled with lots of tasks. The same was true for Rachael’s Mom.
We did a first look at The Allerton Hotel, where Rachael and Matt saw each other for the first time. After that, we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo South Pond for a beautiful photo shoot. Their wedding ceremony was at St. Paul’s UCC and wedding reception was at the Murphy Auditorium.
Also, a HUGE thank you to Robyn Rachel Photography for introducing this wonderful couple to our work.
