24 Oct Jess + Cody // Salvage One
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!
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”.
