Peninsula Hotel Wedding Video

Ann + Andrew’s wedding at St. James Chapel & Peninsula Hotel in Chicago WAS a storybook wedding! Their fairytale started one afternoon in late August. Ann was having cocktails with her friends at a Chicago bar. Andrew was walking down the street with a group of guys; one of whom also knew Ann. As the guys stopped to talk with the girls, Ann and her friends couldn’t help but notice that the guy in a yellow shirt, seersucker shorts, and boat shoes had a keen eye for Ann.

The two groups departed. One of Ann’s friends grabbed a business card from her purse, ran down the street, and gave Ann’s business card to Andrew. A few days later, Ann received a call from Andrew, which began another chapter of their fairytale!

One note about the edit: this wedding was so elegant and full of beautiful details, I thought it would be nice to slow the pace down a little, which would encourage the viewer to focus on the intricate moments.

There were many great quotes throughout their day, which we’ll have to include in their full-length feature film. Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear about the next chapter in Ann & Andrew’s lives!

03 Jul Kelly + Mike // St James Chapel + Newberry Library


Chicago Wedding Videography
We have filmed several weddings at St. James Chapel in Chicago, but this is the first time we filmed a Chicago wedding reception Newberry Library. The building has so much history and was a perfect backdrop for Kelly and Mike’s reception.

Kelly and Mike met by chance outside a Chicago bar and hit it off immediately. Kelly likens it to a love at first sight moment. 3 1/2 years later, Mike asked Kelly to marry him. They had a lot of nice, personal touches throughout their day; including Kelly’s veil/jewelry, votive candles lighting the way throughout the Newberry Library halls, and beautiful pastel color pallet with peonies flowers as the backdrop. Kelly and Mike, thank you for asking us to film your beautiful day!
