This wedding we filmed at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago features one of the most creative first look moments we’ve filmed to date. There’s a great little backstory behind it that didn’t make the edit, but it does exist in subtle cuts and frames throughout the piece. But rather than divulge the details here, we thought it would be more fun to keep the suspense as to why Heather and Michael’s helium filled props don’t exactly match :]

 

Their first look, which bookends the piece, is a reflection of Heather and Michael’s personalities—quirky, creative, a tad competitive, and humorously candid.  We invite you, as they invited us, into their day to enjoy handwritten vows, competitive gift exchanges, stolen fries, and mismatching balloons.
