21 Jun Colleen + Greg // Married in the Dark


The day started out sunny. On top of that, Greg wrote a beautiful note to Colleen, which set the tone for this trailer. After getting ready, Colleen and Greg saw each other for the first time at Prince Pond in Downers Grove, Illinois. It was a beautiful setting for such a nice moment in their lives. The skies then opened up buckets of rain and severe weather. The fire alarms went off just before their ceremony at St. Mary of Gostyn in Downers Grove. Because of the severe weather, all the power in Downers Grove also ended up going out. Everyone pitched in and lit candles to create a beautiful candle-lit wedding ceremony. Colleen and Greg then arrived at their reception (Alpine Banquets in Darien) to find that the power there was also out.

Through it all, Colleen and Greg were the best sports. They were always open and willing to do whatever we needed to get some great shots. As you grow together in your lives, we wish you the very best.

10 Jun Isa + Anand // A Multi-Day Wedding


Hindu Weddings Traditions Unveiled DVD Banner Ad

The rain wasn’t going to stop this wedding celebration. Isa and Anand had a very traditional multi-day South Asian wedding ceremony. Our wedding cinematography coverage started with the sangeet, where family and friends performed dances to celebrate the couple’s upcoming wedding.

The next day started with the barat. We had two videographers and a Steadicam operator. During this wedding ritual, the groom was led by music/dancing, family and friends to the ceremony. The barat usually takes place outside, but the rain started to pour, so everyone had to improvise and started dancing underneath the awning at Ashyana Banquets in Downers Grove, Illinois. This was such a beautiful ceremony, covered with so many great traditions. Congratulations Isa and Anand! We hope that you will have many years of great memories together!

We also enjoyed working with Matt Debackere Photography.
