Courtney + Tim // University Club of Chicago


This was a beautiful wedding in the University Club of Chicago’s Cathedral Hall. With a backdrop of Millennium Park, Tim’s father officiated the wedding ceremony. The wedding guests were surprised by the bagpiper at the end of the ceremony, who led Courtney and Tim down the aisle as a married couple. We also drove around Chicago to capture some nice scenes of Courtney and Tim together; including the Wrigley Building, Michigan Avenue, and Millennium Park with the Cloud Gate display in the AT&T Plaza. Many people spoke at the reception of how Courtney and Tim are the perfect couple. Courtney and Tim, we hope you have many years of happiness together!

Kate + Matt // St. James Chapel + Chicago Union Station


There are many parts about this wedding that might take your breath away. For starters, Kate, her family, and her bridal party prepared for the big day on the 25th floor of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. Their room overlooked the Chicago River and the beautiful view of Chicago’s skyline. After Kate was ready, a beautiful Rolls Royce Silver Wraith seDanca from Elegant Motoring was waiting with a chauffeur, holding open the door for Kate and her father. Matt choked back some tears while Kate was led down the aisle at St. James Chapel in Chicago. The wedding party continued in a beautiful landscape of colors designed by Kehoe Designs at Chicago Union Station – The Great Hall. There’s something about the wedding couple walking down that grande staircase that is a great visual for us. Guests danced the night away with a variety of music from Rendezvous Music and ate at one of the most unique dessert bars (liquid nitrogen ice cream) I’ve ever seen from Nitro Dessert Station. All of this was coordinated by the amazing Five Grain Events team. This was the first time I worked with Peter Wynn Thompson and enjoyed every minute of this day working with him. Kate and Matt, I hope you enjoy this trailer as a wonderful memory of your beautiful day.
