Last weekend I Do Video was able to provide wedding videography services at at Promontory Point in Chicago. With the ceremony planned to be outside, there was a bit of a weather concern considering the cold and rainy weather which has been taking place in September. Those concerns went out the window as the day proved to be perfect for a wedding!
Promontory Point Wedding Video
The newlyweds-to-be were Matt and Ali who met through work on the east coast but moved back to the Chicagoland area before deciding to tie the knot. A wedding videographer services were a late addition to their Promontory Point wedding but we were very happy to be a part of the day! Coverage began at the Chicago Hilton where Ali and the bridesmaids began their bridal preparations. With a suite overlooking Buckingham Fountain, the view was great on this clear, sunny day! After capture some great video shots of Ali getting her dress ready, it was off to the Lincoln Park lily pond where Matt was to see her for the first time. The video coverage of the first look could not have gone more perfectly. In the serene Lincoln Park garden, Ali was revealed to Matt captured by 2 video cameras to get each of their expression. Following the first look, we traveled around Chicago to some popular settings to get some bridal party shots.
As it got close to 430 it was off to the ceremony, to get ready for the Promontory Point wedding. It was the first Promontory Point wedding video that I had covered and was very impressed with the setting. The ceremony took place just feet from Lake Michigan with the Chicago Skyline in the background. Before you knew it, they said their vows and was off to the reception, which was also just a few feet away. Some highlights that will definitely make the wedding video were a few great speeches and the bride’s grandmother serenading the newlyweds.
I was happy to have had the opportunity to provide videography at Promontory Point and look forward to using all the beautiful shots in the final wedding video!
