Amy and Matt’s love story is one for the ages! They met in Alaska, fell in love almost immediately and as they put it, “when you know you know,” and moved to Chicago to start their new life together! Walking around the city at night was so amazing because watching Amy and Matt just be themselves, in love after their amazing wedding day, was so heart-filling! Here’s to the happy couple starting their new adventure… together!
As the day started in their home as Amy got ready, across the city Matt got suited up and excited about the wedding in only a couple hours at the always beautiful Drake Hotel. But it was Matt that made that hotel look even more stunning that day. His attitude, cander and overall shining happiness made the slightly rainy day just so much more beautiful and sunny! Watching Amy dance with her sister as they got ready was hands down one of my favorite moments, as well.
When the ceremony time came at the amazing venue, Big Delicious Planet, the staff made everyone feel welcome and like family while the wedding planner team at Burst Weddings, lead by Beverly Saylor, absolutely made the day run smooth and fun! The ceremony was so Amy and Matt – personal and genuine! The string quarter of Sarlas Music – Artstrings – filled the venue with a hint of magic as the melodies of pop songs by professional string playing masters made everyone smile. Then the time came – and hen they finally got to see each other, you could feel the energy in the room tighten in excitement with them. Their reception was equally genuine and family and friend centered. It was a really nice affair all around…
But then the sun went down, and the party started!! And oh how this group and shake their tail feathers. The awesome DJ from Sarlas Music kept the energy up and the dance floor filled. When it was time to say their good byes to their friends and family, that’s when the night came alive as we (the videographer team) and the photographers of Gernands Photographer (the ever fun Samuel and Maria) ran around downtown making some AWESOME memories and adventures for their creative session. And Amy and Matt didn’t skip a beat! They were all about making the most of their night and it showed in their smiles and love for each other. My absolute favorite part of the day was when Amy and Matt momentarily forget we were filming them and they got lost in each others’ eyes, simply enjoying their wedding bliss. I couldn’t help dancing around the city with them in excitement!!
