Gayle + Edward Wedding Film Trailer

On May 16th, Orange Wedding Films captured Gayle and Edward getting married at the Westin Hotel in Lombard. Exactly 360 days ago, I shot my 3rd wedding here, and gave me time to think about how far Orange Wedding Films has come. They had their "first look" before the ceremony in the lobby witnessed by both parents and entire bridal party which was very cute! The flower and all the decoration was done by M&M Special Events. Ceremony and reception was taking place without any hitch (thanks to Adel from Oliveaire,everything was running so smoothly, and it was a huge help on us to wrap up our 4 back-to-back weddings that weekend. A big thanks to Gayle and Edward for generosity and kindness, and best of luck to you both!

Maggie + Mike Wedding Film Trailer

This wedding was one of rare cases where I have never met the bride and groom, but as soon as I walked into Maggie's prep location (Wit Hotel), everyone gave me warm welcome and offering me refreshments. Maggie was very relaxed, and smiling throughout her preparation process, and so was Mike.
Ceremony and reception was held in the Adler Planetarium in downtown Chicago, and it was GORGEOUS!!! Everything went so smoothly, huge thanks to Charlene from Sweet Chic Events. Charlene had talked about the wedding day and all the planning with us ahead of time, which helped us tremendously to be able to capture the moment without any surprises.
Makeup was done by Lillian Toma from Starlight Makeup
Photographer was Brian from Grey St. Photography and he was awesome to work with as well! Can't wait to see the photos.
Color of the sky was simply beautiful during first dance, too. Congratulations to Maggie and Mike, and thank you very much for such a great wedding!

Lady May + Ryan Wedding Film Trailer

Last weekend, we captured total of 4 weddings and every single one of them was truly unique and amazing!!! As a start up of trailer marathon from last weekend weddings, here is the trailer of May and Ryan's wedding!
They tied the knot at Old St.Patrick's church on Monroe St, and it was one of most restricted churches we have shot so far, which gave us tons of challenges to shoot the angles we wanted. Other than that, the light was beautiful inside of church, and there was lots of emotion throughout the entire ceremony.
The reception was held at Hyatt in Schaumburg, and they surprised their guests with a choreographed first dance!
Their photographer was Danielle and Jake from Danielle Aquiline Photography and make up was done by Sonia Roselli
Congratulations to May and Ryan!

Doan + Daniel Wedding Film Trailer

Orange Wedding Films had back to back wedding last weekend, they both turned out to be truly amazing weddings. On May 1st, Doan and Daniel tied the knot, and we were there to capture all the details, emotion, and moments. On my to church after capturing the couple's "first reveal" on the staircase at the hotel, I could map out the trailer in my head how it should lay out, and the trailer came out 99% close to what I was thinking. We can't wait to premiere the full film and short film for the couple, family and friends.
The hair was done by Livia Caporale, the reception was held at Renaissance hotel in Schaumburg. It was great to work with the photographer Leo from Fragola Productions.
Check out their awesome photos from Fragola's blog here
Enjoy!

Alicia + Scott Wedding Film Trailer

We filmed Alicia and Scott's Wedding and it was one of "the nicest" weddings that we have filmed. Everyone was taking good care of our crew, and everything was going so smoothly throughout the day. Ceremony and reception was held in William Tell in Countryside, and it was our first outdoor wedding this year. The precipitation was 80% 2 days before, but it dropped down to 20% on the day of. It did rain A LOT starting around 9PM, but for their ceremony and photo session, it was pretty outside! Even during the ceremony, it was a bit windy with grey clouds above us, but not a single drop came down. Reception was full of surprises (wait for the full film!), and the father of the bride came to our table himself to make sure we got food and drinks. Awesome families and friends! Stunning bride, awesome groom, perfect wedding! Congratulations to Alicia and Scott. Enjoy the trailer!!!
