One of the many wonderful things about weddings is the ability to customize everything to the bride and groom. Suzanne and Kevin did just that in so many ways. We open their wedding trailer with a reading from their ceremony. Entitled, “A Year Ago Today”, it was a poem that Suzanne’s Grandfather had written to his wife after one year of marriage. The trailer continues with the custom cufflinks each groomsman received as a gift. Each cufflink was fashioned out of authentic sports memorabilia, catered to each groomsmen’s favorite sport and team. All of the bridesmaids wore beautiful, individually custom-designed dresses from Avail & Company. Suzanne’s Vera Wang stunner was icing on the cake! Everything was topped off with an evening of dancing, fireworks, and counting down the New Year with an awesome band/DJ music set from Larry King Orchestra. We were thankful to be a part of this talented team of vendors for one of the last weddings to take place at the River East Art Center.

Meaghan and William were so much fun. They scheduled their big day on New Year’s Eve in Chicago because they wanted to celebrate their wedding and countdown to the New Year with all their family and friends during one big party! We wanted to capture the mood and feeling around Chicago to start the wedding trailer off. So, we captured scenes of the Chicago skyline and lakeshore area. A huge thank you to Robyn Rachel of Robyn Rachel Photography for introducing us to this awesome couple and to Chicago Trolley Rentals for allowing us to put our portable video camera on their “La Contessa trolley” window to get the cool driving shots.
