Tiffany+Eric | 6.4.2011 | Wedding Film Trailer by Orange Wedding Films

We have been so blessed to capture so many blissful weddings this year, and we have done 12 so far. Tiffany and Eric's wedding was one of weddings that we realize once again why we do what we do. I just love the fact that our crew (including myself) was welcomed with such warm hearts and hugs, treated such from the beginning to end. When you see beautiful people, you wonder if they are beautiful inside as well. It sure was the case on this wedding. To be honest, I was intimated by Eric's height and fashion, but I soon learned that he is a down to earth guy with the warmest heart that comforted everyone around him (and he was quite goofy, LOL!).
I wish I can share more from their wedding, but y'all got to wait for highlights and full film!
It was great working with Sarah and Ryan from Miller + Miller Photography and make sure to check out their amazing images.
It was pleasure once again to see Grace from Vale of Enna and be sure to stop by her blog to see her amazing work.
Anthony from Liven It Up Event was one hell of planner to work with. He made everything so much easier and smoother. Big thanks to Anthony for working so hard!
Congratulations to Tiffany and Eric. We miss you guys!

Michelle+Ken | 5.22.2011 | Wedding Film Trailer by Orange Wedding Films

It's always blessing to capture such a fun wedding with wonderful crew from SecondPrint Produtions. Makeup was done by fabulous crew from Sonia Roselli! Michelle and Ken said "I DO" on May 21st, and it was so much fun from start to end. Their tricks and games on grooms before Ken was allowed to see Michelle was one of the most bizarre and funny (from us, at least). Games that they played during reception was too funny I had to hold my camera steady from my laughing so hard. All have to wait for full film to watch the games, though, but here is the sneak peak from their wedding! Congratulations to Michelle and Ken. Thanks again so much for wonderful event!





Nikki+Matt | 5.21.2011 | Wedding Film Trailer by Orange Wedding Films

Nikki and Matt's wedding was very special to me personally in many ways. Not only because they are straight up cool, but I've already shot two of her bridesmaids' wedding (i wish it was 3, but we are booked for 3rd friend...) and they are simply one of the nicest+kindest yet most exciting couple that we've worked with so far. Nikki and Matt really love what we do, and we are more than happy to be part of their wedding. The day was so much fun and beautiful in every way.
They had their ceremony at Holy Name Cathedral (one of the most beautiful churches in downtown), and celebrated at Crystal Garden at Navy Pier. I know they are exciting and fun driven couple, and knowing what kind of music Nikki likes, i was focusing too much on hip and cool music for the trailer(knowing how important music for the trailer which directly governs storytelling). After 4 hours of music searching, I took a break, and decided to look at the footage before I went further with the edit. Then I remembered Matt's father giving a speech with a poem that he wrote. I found the perfect voice-over for the trailer. I cut the parts that I wanted to use, and played the music on the background (one of my all-time fav soundtrack), and music fit right in even before I edited the music accordingly. I went full speed with edit, and here it is. This trailer opened my eyes once more how important it is to create a trailer with unique story instead of just eye popping shots, and, me and Mrs.Orange really loved how it came out.
From the glimpse of party bus shot, you can tell how much fun we had that day (from the start till the end!), and I hope this trailer can tell you a glimpse of how awesome their wedding day was.
Big congratulations to Nikki and Matt. We miss you guys already. And of course missing Scott+Eileen, Nicole+Dereck a lot, too!!!

Awesome images taken by Kevin Weinstein and Chadd Foy from Kevin Weinstein Photography, and you can check out his great photos from this wedding here --> Kevin Weinstein Photogrphy. I worked with Kevin and Chad again following week for another wedding, but unfortunately, we won't be able to share that one...
Makeup and hair was done by crew of Sonia Roselli, one of our favorite vendor of all time!

Again, sit back and enjoy this trailer from a beautiful wedding of Nikki and Matt.

Amy + Irakli | 4.30.2011 | Wedding Film Trailer by Orange Wedding Films

On April 30th, Orange Wedding Films crew and Fragola Productions collaborate 3rd time in one month to capture this wonderful couple, Amy and Irakil.
It was our first time capturing Georgian wedding and reception, and I have to say that it was unique and cool in every way. Food at the reception was nothing like what we had had before, and it kept coming out till we left!
We always love when we capture the couple so much in love finally being husband and wife.
Thanks so much to Amy + Irakli for great wedding, and taking a good care of us.
