Chicago Wedding Video
It was pretty spectacular…
Counting our Lucky Stars
Ben and I felt so lucky to be a part of this weekend. In fact, we turned to each other countless times throughout our long weekend in Chicago and said “we’re so lucky that we do this for a living”. Not only when we were cycling along next to lake Michigan or eating deep pan pizza at Lou Melnatti’s; not only when we were watching live blues music at howl to the moon or when we were tucking into the delicious Park Hyatt breakfasts overlooking Chicago city; not only when we were tucking into Eli’s Cheesecakes at the family’s factory or drinking old fashioneds with old friends. We were saying this to each other when we were deep into a demanding, 14 hour shoot on Kori and Paul’s wedding day. There was no rest for the wicked, but who needs rest when you’re having such a good time? There’s a reason both of us were still on the dance floor at 2am…
You’d be pretty hard pushed to find a family as warm, welcoming, funny and interesting as the Schulmans. Except, of course, if you’re at the wedding of Kori and Paul. In which case – you’d find the Kendricks! We’ve rarely felt so welcomed and it was a real honour and pleasure to have met these two families, and to have been part of this wedding. From the moment the Mother of the Bride, Maureen Schulman, sent us the first email asking if we were available to film this Chicago wedding video, we knew this was going to be something special! Maureen has quickly become one of our favourite people! And our favourite MOB to date!
Interfaith marriages are always our favourite. There’s little more uplifting than seeing families from different religions embracing each other and celebrating traditions and beliefs alongside each other. Kori and Paul’s ceremony may just be the most beautiful, meaningful and charming ceremony we’ve ever seen.
After a first look at Seneca Park and a couple’s shoot around the city, the ceremony and reception were held at Morgan Manufacturing. The venue was incredible. And the flowers and details on display were chosen to match. I’m not going to try and describe it anymore than that! If you want to see how incredible it is, just take a look at the video 🙂
