Ann + Andrew // St. James Chapel + Peninsula Hotel
Ann + Andrew’s wedding at St. James Chapel & Peninsula Hotel in Chicago WAS a storybook wedding! Their fairytale started one afternoon in late August. Ann was having cocktails with her friends at a Chicago bar. Andrew was walking down the street with a group of guys; one of whom also knew Ann. As the guys stopped to talk with the girls, Ann and her friends couldn’t help but notice that the guy in a yellow shirt, seersucker shorts, and boat shoes had a keen eye for Ann.
The two groups departed. One of Ann’s friends grabbed a business card from her purse, ran down the street, and gave Ann’s business card to Andrew. A few days later, Ann received a call from Andrew, which began another chapter of their fairytale!
One note about the edit: this wedding was so elegant and full of beautiful details, I thought it would be nice to slow the pace down a little, which would encourage the viewer to focus on the intricate moments.
There were many great quotes throughout their day, which we’ll have to include in their full-length feature film. Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear about the next chapter in Ann & Andrew’s lives!
