Salvage One is one of Chicago’s many unique wedding venues. From the moment Jess & Cody’s guests set foot inside the multi-level warehouse, you could see their faces light up. From wall to wall, Salvage One is filled with some of the most unique antique/vintage architectural elements that were saved from the wrecking ball. During the week, homeowners, designers, and historians browse the artifacts for sale. On the weekend, the space is turned into a wedding venue. Pretty unique, right? It’s the first time we ever filmed a wedding here but one of the cinematographers on our team used to live in the space many years ago when it had apartment-style lofts!

The Wedding
Where should we start? How about Jess’ stunning Vera Wang gown? It was an amazing piece of art, coupled with their floral and bridesmaids gowns, that complimented Jess + Cody’s vintage wedding theme.

Cody’s Uncle was scheduled to officiate their ceremony. However an illness the night before their wedding sent everyone scrambling for a replacement. Cody’s Aunt, who is also a professor of history, stepped in and added many beautiful touches to their wedding program.

They were surrounded by their family, friends, and Cody’s baseball teammates from his college days at the University of Notre Dame. Jess and Cody, thank you for asking us to film your day. We hope this short trailer will remind you of that beautiful weekend in October when you said, “I do”.

Patrick C Haley Mansion Wedding

Whitney + Vince // Patrick C Haley Mansion

Whitney met Vince while he was working at DSW: Designer Shoe Warehouse. Whitney was looking for another perfect pair to compliment her wardrobe but the store didn’t have her size. Vince called around to other stores and was able to find what she needed. That first time they met, Vince claims he asked her out but says his co-workers were talking over him. Luckily, Vince would have a second chance. The shoes were shipped to Vince’s store. As luck would have it, Vince was in the store again at the exact moment Whitney arrived to try the new shoes on. Whitney must have made a good first impression. Vince noticed she wasn’t wearing her glasses during the second visit to his store. They struck up a conversation and Vince asked her out a second time. They went on their first date, which lasted approximately 4-6 hours, but no one really knows. Time flew by…they weren’t keeping track! Vince was eventually known as “the shoe guy” amongst Whitney’s friends.

The Patrick C. Haley Mansion in Joliet, Illinois was the perfect venue for Whitney and Vince’s vintage-themed wedding. While you watch their trailer, take note of Whitney’s dress, which was fashioned out of her Grandmother’s wedding gown. Shoes used with that same gown on her Grandmother’s wedding day (June 9, 1925) also make an appearance in this video trailer!
