Chicago Filipino Wedding Video

30 Sep Paula + William // Holy Name Cathedral + The Drake Hotel

Paula and William met eight years ago while attending Stanford University. Both of them grew up in New England, went to college in California and now call Chicago their home. Paula is a MD/PhD student and William is a pediatrics resident.

For the proposal, William decorated their Chicago apartment with orange balloons. It was around Christmas and Paula’s birthday. When she returned to their apartment, Paula says she noticed their normal Christmas music wasn’t playing. Stevie Wonder’s “You are the Sunshine of my Life” replaced all of the seasonal tunes but she didn’t think much of it. Then, William asked Paula to come to the window where he had strung Christmas lights that said: “Marry me?” At first, Paula said she thought it was a train but after she figured it out, William got down on one knee and asked Paula to spend the rest of her life with him!

08 May Angelica + Garry // St. Matthew Parish + Esplanade Lakes

The beautiful part about planning a wedding is that you can customize the day around your life as a couple. Angelica + Garry’s day started out by Angelica’s family welcoming Garry and his family to a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony. At the start of the ceremony, Garry and his groomsmen gave gifts to the bridesmaids. Both families introduced themselves and family members gave short speeches; all this while Angelica was waiting in a separate room. Adding a little fun to the day, Garry was required to complete tasks given by the bridesmaids before he could see Angelica. Garry was then given permission to see Angelica. After that, gifts were given to the couple and they gave tea to their parents.

Their wedding video trailer also features Filipino wedding traditions, which were led by His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Carinal Tagle at St. Matthew Parish in Schaumburg, Illinois.

Guests danced the night away at Esplanade Lakes by Doubletree in Downers Grove, Illinois to music by DJ Noyze with Remix Entertainment. Bridal makeup/hair by Tran B. Makeup 773-574-2440
