Chicago Wedding Cinematography at Germania Place

Alyssa & Israel knew each other for many years. As Alyssia’s father told the story, Israel took many years to propose because the engineer in him needed to plan everything out. All that planning definitely paid off. There were so many nice touches that Alyssia & Israel included in their wedding. With this trailer, we tried to encompass just a sample of them. One of the most beautiful “first look” locations in Chicago is at the Cancer Survivor’s Garden in Millennium Park. As Alyssia walked underneath the towering archway, Israel stood at the bottom of a staircase, waiting to see his future bride for the first time on their wedding day. Several people spoke at the reception & teared up while talking about the couple. One of the reception highlights included a surprise mariachi band, which Israel always wanted at his wedding. Alyssia and Israel, we hope you enjoy this trailer as a wonderful memory of your beautiful day.

Several months before Ashley and Brian’s wedding, Ashley’s parents approached Delack Media Group with an idea. They wanted us to create a Love Story + baby slideshow video to be shown at their wedding reception…with a twist. At the end of the video would be a surprise same day edit of Ashley and Brian’s trailer. We loved the idea, so we worked for months planning the execution of this same day edit. With a team of talented crew members, we pulled it off. Ashley and Brian had no idea that we were working behind-the-scenes all day on editing their wedding trailer. Needless to say, when their wedding trailer was projected on a huge wall at Germania Place, you could see the look in their eyes…they were in awe. Laughs, tears, and plenty of applause from the wedding guests followed. The night was a huge success!
