Trump Chicago Wedding Video

Lauren + Sebastian // St. James + Trump Hotel Chicago


Call it serendipity or just pure luck. One night, Lauren and Sebastian were both at the same Chicago bar. The bartender was holding a contest. For those who wanted to give their shirt to the bartender, they’d receive a free beer. Sebastian’s brother said during his speech that Sebastian was never one to miss out on a free beer. So, Sebastian removed his shirt. The bartender took the shirt and threw it in the air at the crowd. The shirt landed right on Laruen’s face. Sebastian’s brother called it fate, which was pointing Sebastian in the direction of his future. Whatever direction you may travel, we wish you two best of luck in your married future together!

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!
