Vanessa & Philip | Chicago Wedding Film

"Love is the most powerful force in the world. You can't even see it, and yet it can change you in a single instant and give you more joy in a single moment, than any material possession could ever hope to accomplish over multiple lifetimes" <3

We had so much fun traveling to Chicago to spend such an amazing day with Vanessa and Philip. These two are an absolute power couple. As you can hear through so many of the heartfelt speeches, their success and drive in their careers is only eclipsed by their love for people and each other. The joy that we saw each of them bring to their families was an honor to witness.

In addition to the beautiful wedding of these two, it was exciting to get to see the wedding traditions of Vanessa's family that we had never experienced before. Between their mariachi band and the "el muertito, vibora de la mar" - their reception was filled with beautiful traditions/customs, endless fun, and so much laughter!

There were countless times throughout the evening where we found ourselves standing back and taking in these two incredible families and hundreds of their friends having the time of their lives as they celebrated two such incredible, kind-hearted people and the love they have found in one another! It was a true honor that we were able to help capture that.

Vanessa and Phil, congratulations, and we can't wait to see where life takes you all!
