There are many parts about this wedding that might take your breath away. For starters, Kate, her family, and her bridal party prepared for the big day on the 25th floor of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. Their room overlooked the Chicago River and the beautiful view of Chicago’s skyline. After Kate was ready, a beautiful Rolls Royce Silver Wraith seDanca from Elegant Motoring was waiting with a chauffeur, holding open the door for Kate and her father. Matt choked back some tears while Kate was led down the aisle at St. James Chapel in Chicago. The wedding party continued in a beautiful landscape of colors designed by Kehoe Designs at Chicago Union Station – The Great Hall. There’s something about the wedding couple walking down that grande staircase that is a great visual for us. Guests danced the night away with a variety of music from Rendezvous Music and ate at one of the most unique dessert bars (liquid nitrogen ice cream) I’ve ever seen from Nitro Dessert Station. All of this was coordinated by the amazing Five Grain Events team. This was the first time I worked with Peter Wynn Thompson and enjoyed every minute of this day working with him. Kate and Matt, I hope you enjoy this trailer as a wonderful memory of your beautiful day.

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:
