If you want to talk about fate, here’s the perfect story. Seven years ago, Sara and Marty first met on an airplane. They were sitting next to each other on a ride to Orlando, FL for a work conference. They both worked for the same company but had never met prior to the flight! During the flight, they ended up listening to the same music. That’s when Marty said he knew Sara might be “the one”.

St. Alphonsus and the Chicago History Museum were both perfect backdrops for this beautiful wedding. Sara and Marty, thanks so much for asking us to film your wedding. We wish you many years of happiness and joy!

Chicago Wedding Videographer Review
Chicago wedding cinematography

Annie and TJ first saw our work when a friend sent them a link to our wedding trailers. They both immediately fell in love with our style of storytelling, but Annie’s hopes of having us document her wedding day quickly disappeared when she realized we were out of their budget.

Little did Annie know that TJ had later contacted us to reserve their date and asked us to keep the big secret. A few weeks before their wedding, TJ brought out his laptop, logged onto the Delack Media Group wedding blog and showed Annie one of our latest trailers. Annie looked at TJ and smiled. “I know where this is going,” she later told her friends about that moment. TJ broke the news to her that he had hired us to film their big day. Needless to say, Annie was ecstatic.

Heavenly music from the Magical Strings of Youth filled the air at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church (Chicago) for Annie + TJ’s wedding ceremony. They also incorporated a few Filipino wedding ceremony traditions. The wedding coins (Arras or Arrhae) symbolize mutual support and responsibility. The veil is a symbol of the couple’s unity (being “clothed as one”), and the cord is placed over the heads of the couple and draped over their shoulders to signify the couple’s bond.

After the ceremony, we went to the Cancer Survivors Garden for shots with their wedding party. Then, everyone danced the night away at the Ravenswood Event Center. Annie + TJ: thank you for entrusting me to capture your day. I hope you enjoy watching your wedding trailer and film for many years to come!
