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.

Rachael + Matt // A Chicago Wedding Video Trailer

When I walked in the door, camera in hand, Rachael’s Mom looked at me, covered her mouth and gasped. “Oh my gosh!”, she said. “You make the most beautiful videos, ever! Each one I watch makes me cry!” What an amazing feeling and a wonderful welcome to the day. Little did I know that Rachael’s mom would play an integral role in the storyline development for her daughter’s wedding trailer. I guess as any mother of the bride knows, the morning of your daughter’s wedding is always filled with lots of tasks. The same was true for Rachael’s Mom.

We did a first look at The Allerton Hotel, where Rachael and Matt saw each other for the first time. After that, we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo South Pond for a beautiful photo shoot. Their wedding ceremony was at St. Paul’s UCC and wedding reception was at the Murphy Auditorium.

Also, a HUGE thank you to Robyn Rachel Photography for introducing this wonderful couple to our work.
