Vicky + Eric // A Chicago Holy Family Church Wedding


Postcard Thank You Note from Chicago wedding bride

In the morning, the bride and groom usually exchange gifts and/or notes. The notes are usually a sentimental look back at the couple’s journey together and their hopes for a great future. Instead of a note, Vicky was handed a laptop computer. On the computer was a recorded video message that Eric put together for her to watch. This is the first time we saw the groom using video for his message! Needless to say, it was a big hit! The couple also blended their Mexican and Filipino cultures into beautiful wedding ceremony traditions, which you’ll see in this video trailer. From the amazing sweetheart table to the completely customized seating card/picture frame table to the touching Mother/Daughter dance…we had plenty of great visuals to capture.

Vicky and Eric, you’ve been such a great couple to work with and the love you have for each other is evident. We hope you enjoy this trailer as a wonderful memory of that emotional day.

Church: Holy Family Church, Chicago, Illinois

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.
