Tara & George | Greek Wedding Reception at Chicago Greek Museum

Last summer, Tara and George traveled to Greece and tied the knot with a gorgeous backdrop. A few weeks later, they came back home and celebrated with their friends and family at the National Hellenic Museum in downtown Chicago. The museum, itself, also had a breath-taking backdrop for their cocktail hours and dance floor, which had an illuminated LCD floor (check out the aerial shots)! It was, truly, a wonderful celebration to capture last year! Their short film will be delivered in a week or two, but first, let's check out what's coming! Congratulations, Tara and George! And thank you so much for having Team Orange at your reception!
 



Tiffany + Justin | Renaissance Schaumburg Wedding Film Trailer

What a way to end the season!  Fun and exiting wedding of Tiffany and Justin was absolutely the best way to finish another awesome year for Orange Wedding Team.
It was fun, upbeat, beautiful and emotional.  What a surprise Tiffany got everyone with her father grooving to Watch Me (Whip/NaeNae) performance!
During the welcome/thank you speech by the couple, they acknowledged all the vendors which we truly appreciated from our heart.
Thanks so much for having us there, Justin and Tiffany!
Enjoy the trailer!





Mick & Elisabeth | Chicago Northerly Island Wedding Film Trailer

Many couples opt out on wedding cinematography for many reasons and of course, many research show, #1 regret that wedding couples have "after" the wedding is "not having their wedding film/video".
Mick and Liz was not going to let that happen, so they visited out studio a few weeks before the wedding and decided to have us capture their very unique wedding.
Personally I was excited to shoot a wedding at Northerly Island as it was very new to open.  But even the cool location won't be fun without fun people.  Liz and Mick is just those people who were able to make guests had endless fun throughout the day! I wish the night never ended because everywhere I looked with my camera, people were having so much FUN dancing!
I am so happy and thrilled that we can share just a glimpse of this awesome day we had with Liz and Mick's friends and families before the full film is done.
Congratulations, you two. Can't wait to share more what we captured!!
Enjoy.

Marj + Jim | Union League Club Chicago / Home of Holy Name Cathedral Church Wedding Film Trailer

Ever since I met Marj for the first time back in September last year, she has put 100% trust on our team. It means a lot to us and makes our job so much more fun and important. I also pitched the idea of "unplugged wedding" which she loved right away. (See the awesome sign they made here)
Marj and Jim tied the knot at Home of Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago downtown and danced the night away at Union League Club.
Marj surprised Jim with their beloved pet, Pierce at the Olive Park where we did our photo session! Such a cute moment we briefly shared on the trailer!
It was fantastic working with Lauren Wakefield (photography) and always good working with Jessica from Inspired Celebrations.
David Sherman from Arlen Music Productions made sure all the guests were on the dance floor having so much fun throughout the night!
Congratulations, Marj and Jim! Thanks so much for being simply AWESOME couple. Can't wait to share more captured moments with you guys!

Carolyn + Jake | Ruffled Feathers Golf Club Wedding Film Trailer

Many times in my career, our couples and their family grew as more of friends of ours than vendor-client relationship.  THIS is one of my favorite parts of being a wedding filmmaker.  We captured the wedding for one of Carolyn's sister, Debbie back in 2010.  Even back then, we knew her family has such a huge warmth and kindness toward others which made me fall in love with them right away.  It was such an honor to be part of Foley family's event again.  We can't wait to share more from their wedding with friends and family soon.  Congratulations, Carolyn and Jake!  Thanks again so very much for having us there on your big day!




Amanda + David | Adler Planetarium + Palmer House Wedding Film Trailer

When I think about this wedding, the first word came to mind is "Happy." Amanda has such a great personality that she makes people around her happier than one can possibly be at the moment.  David is such a gentleman who is a perfect match for Amanda.  
Adler Planetarium is one of my favorite place to capture a wedding and we could have not asked for a better weather.  Come check it out yourself!

Elyse + Ryan | Wedding Film Trailer | Intercontinental Hotel Chicago Wedding

Throwback Thursday! Or Trailer Thursday! Either way, back in June 6th, Team Orange was so honored to be part of two awesome weddings.  One of them was Elyse and Ryan's celebration at Intercontinental downtown Chicago.  The day was filled with laughters and some tears from joy and happiness.  The whole day, we were in good hands because Beth from SQN Events made sure everything ran smoothly.  First time working with Ingrid Boone but we felt like we worked together numerous times already.  As happened many times, Dustin from Toast & Jam helped us out big time during the reception.
Can't wait to share the short film later which will have a lot more moments to cherish, but for now, here is a little teaser to share!

 


New Year's Eve Trump Chicago Hotel Wedding | Lisa +Paul | Trailer by Orange Wedding

New Year's Eve is one of the most best celebrations where we can go all out. Mix that with a wedding, and you get yourself THE PARTY to go nuts. I've never been a part of celebration that had this level of energy and fun in my career. Near the end of the night, I rarely had to hit "stop" button on my camera because any direction I point my camera because I was able to see and capture people having fun everywhere. Tremendous amount of Pure Fun!!! You gotta check it out the trailer yourself and you will be able to get a glimpse of what kind of celebration our team was part of! And of course, the arrangement and working on the day of could have not gone any smoother by working with extremely talented professionals.  Congratulations, Lisa + Paul!
