There are many parts about this wedding that might take your breath away. For starters, Kate, her family, and her bridal party prepared for the big day on the 25th floor of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. Their room overlooked the Chicago River and the beautiful view of Chicago's skyline. After Kate was ready, a beautiful Rolls Royce Silver Wraith seDanca from Elegant Motoring was waiting with a chauffeur, holding open the door for Kate and her father. Matt choked back some tears while Kate was led down the aisle at St. James Chapel in Chicago. The wedding party continued in a beautiful landscape of colors designed by Kehoe Designs at Chicago Union Station - The Great Hall. There's something about the wedding couple walking down that grande staircase that is a great visual for us. Guests danced the night away with a variety of music from Rendezvous Music and ate at one of the most unique dessert bars (liquid nitrogen ice cream) I've ever seen from Nitro Dessert Station. All of this was coordinated by the amazing Five Grain Events team. This was the first time we worked with Peter Wynn Thompson and enjoyed every minute of this day working with him. Kate and Matt, we hope you enjoy this trailer as a wonderful memory of your beautiful day.
After looking at many videographer options for their wedding, Ashley and Nathan saw our work and fell in love. Through the help and coordination of Big City Bride, all of their magical wedding dreams were transformed into a beautiful tapestry.
They came to us with the idea of doing a same day edit. Because St. James Chapel couldn’t fit all of their guests, they wanted everyone to share in the joy of their beautiful day. We put together a slideshow of their baby + family + dating pictures, added some speeches and video from the dress rehearsal night and combined all of that into this wedding trailer, which was shown at their reception.
Decked out in black and gold (Purdue University’s colors), Chicago’s Union Station looked absolutely stunning. There were so many details in this wedding….the amazing dresses, the beautiful cake, the royal trumpeters, the painter…we could go on and on, but watch for yourself this unforgettable wedding video trailer.

In the morning, the bride and groom usually exchange gifts and/or notes. The notes are usually a sentimental look back at the couple’s journey together and their hopes for a great future. Instead of a note, Vicky was handed a laptop computer. On the computer was a recorded video message that Eric put together for her to watch. This is the first time we saw the groom using video for his message! Needless to say, it was a big hit! The couple also blended their Mexican and Filipino cultures into beautiful wedding ceremony traditions, which you'll see in this video trailer. From the amazing sweetheart table to the touching Mother/Daughter dance...we had plenty of great visuals to capture.
Vicky and Eric, you’ve been such a great couple to work with and the love you have for each other is evident. We hope you enjoy this trailer as a wonderful memory of that emotional day.
