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.

Ashley + Nathan // Chicago Union Station Same Day Edit

After looking at many videographer options for their wedding, Ashley and Nathan saw our work and fell in love. Through the help and coordination of Big City Bride, all of their magical wedding dreams were transformed into a beautiful tapestry.

They came to us with the idea of doing a same day edit. Because St. James Chapel couldn’t fit all of their guests, they wanted everyone to share in the joy of their beautiful day. We put together a slideshow of their baby + family + dating pictures, added some speeches and video from the dress rehearsal night and combined all of that into this wedding trailer, which was shown at their reception.

Decked out in black and gold (Purdue University’s colors-where Ashley and Nathan both graduated), Chicago’s Union Station looked absolutely stunning. There were so many details in this wedding….the amazing dresses, the beautiful cake, the royal trumpeters, the painter…we could go on and on, but watch for yourself…this unforgettable wedding video trailer.
Ashley + Nathan’s reaction to their Same Day Edit, which played at their reception inside Union Station:

They also had Jim Cornelison, the famous singer, perform his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at their reception
