Chicago Persian Wedding Video

Mahsa + John // The Peninsula Hotel


We enjoyed filming Mahsa + John’s Chicago Persian wedding at The Peninsula Hotel. For years ago, Mahsa and John met at a supper club in Chicago. Three years after meeting, John proposed to Mahsa in the same exact place they met! The Peninsula Hotel in Chicago provided the perfect backdrop as the couple danced the night away to a mix of Persian and American music with their family and friends!

Ann + Andrew // St. James Chapel + Peninsula Hotel


Peninsula Hotel Wedding Video

Ann + Andrew’s wedding at St. James Chapel & Peninsula Hotel in Chicago WAS a storybook wedding! Their fairytale started one afternoon in late August. Ann was having cocktails with her friends at a Chicago bar. Andrew was walking down the street with a group of guys; one of whom also knew Ann. As the guys stopped to talk with the girls, Ann and her friends couldn’t help but notice that the guy in a yellow shirt, seersucker shorts, and boat shoes had a keen eye for Ann.

The two groups departed. One of Ann’s friends grabbed a business card from her purse, ran down the street, and gave Ann’s business card to Andrew. A few days later, Ann received a call from Andrew, which began another chapter of their fairytale!

One note about the edit: this wedding was so elegant and full of beautiful details, I thought it would be nice to slow the pace down a little, which would encourage the viewer to focus on the intricate moments.

There were many great quotes throughout their day, which we’ll have to include in their full-length feature film. Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear about the next chapter in Ann & Andrew’s lives!
