With the backdrop of Chicago, the natural beauty of the botanic gardens, and two best friends who are head over heels in love with each other it’s hard to beat Ari and Jenny’s wedding weekend. I was lucky enough to spend three incredible days with this amazing pair as I captured their celebration all over the city. I have a million favorite moments from our time together but I think their dance might top the list. I learned early on that they had put a lot of work into a beautifully choreographed first dance. Since we had the time, and were in some stunning settings, we filmed a few rehearsals. That footage, combined with the reception performance, helps tell the story of these two remarkable individuals throughout the film and is a perfect metaphor for their future. Moving in sync, side by side, Ari and Jenny being together makes the world a better place. I could say so much more, but of course their film says it all. A huge thank you to Alicia at Clementine Custom Events for coordinating and planning such a perfect weekend. Thanks also to the staff of the Chicago Botanic Gardens, The Chicago Westin North Shore, and Miramar Bistro! I am so incredibly honored to know Ari and Jenny and to have been able to tell their story. Congratulations and Mazel Tov!!!
