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. 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.
