Why: Because your getting married!

 

 

 

Your Big Day: On Video!

You have your dress, your venue and many other aspects of your big day all planned out. Although you certainly have a photographer. What about a videographer?

There is nothing more special than being able to re-live your big day- as it happens. Can you imagine spending your 10th anniversary watching your vows as they were actually spoken?

Pictures say 1000 words, however videos show the words being spoken.

With that being said, we asked Amy from Eclipse Multimedia and Video to fill us in a little about wedding videography.

Why video? 

– I frequently have wedding couples who are still deciding if they want a videographer or not. At weddings, I quite often have guests that come up to me and say, “I wish we would have had a video of our wedding. There is so much I can’t remember about it.” The day goes so fast and the couple may miss so much of it.

Between preparation, pictures, running around and greeting guests – a couple are often  overwhelmed or in a happy daze. And there are so many times when the couple is not even in the same place as the action- like before their arrival to the reception.

A wedding video is not just for the couple- but for their families too. It is also important to capture the family members who are all gathered together in one place. There are so few times when all our loved ones are gathered together in the same place.

Having a videographer instead of a family friend or family member is beneficial- they are focused only on the video, not  on the events or catching up with others at the wedding.

When do you arrive to the ceremony?

Depending on the package and the number of angles you have -the earlier we arrive. Simply let us know your requests.

What do your packages cover? 

All ceremony packages will cover some before footage/getting ready shots, the entire ceremony and a few shots after the ceremony. (receiving line, etc. ) You can also include the entire receiving line and your exit to the reception as an add-on. We can also include the entire reception as an add-on as well. (your arrival, glass clinking/kissing, toasts, cake cutting, the first 3 dances, etc.)

What about examples of your work? 

Couples often ask for examples of my work- I believe this is so important to ask of your videograhper. You should absolutely make sure the person you choose has experience with weddings. Not every wedding is the same. I’m very willing to be creative with each couples unique style for their wedding.

 

I have so many previous clients tell me how much fun they have watching their videos. They loved to see all the details they missed on their big day. Parents and Grandparents loved to see all the family gathered together. 

 

A wedding video may not be something you watch everyday, but it is something you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Honeymoon Planning Tips

Anyone else miss the Spring-like weather we had last week?

The recent temperature changes have us dreaming of sunny skies and bright clear waters.

No matter what stage of planning you are in, surely you have to include a honeymoon! Lisa  from Travel-Travel Fargo-Moorhead Inc. has sent us some tips to help with your dream honeymoon.

You and your new life partner, cocktails with umbrellas and a romantic sunset- Does it get any better? Didn’t think so.

Take a tip (or a few) from Miss. Lisa and be prepared for the trip of a lifetime:

When is it best to plan for your honeymoon?

At least 6 months prior. Some couples who get married in the summer months put off their honeymoon until the winter..

Where should you go on your honeymoon? 

The possibilities are endless! People are really starting to think outside the box. Walking along the beach at sunset in Hawaii isn’t everyone’s dream anymore. Mexico and the Caribbean are always going to be popular. However, I have had clients go on a tour of Ireland. Or going on an Alaskan cruise, or mountain climbing or stay in a bungalow in Bora Bora.

How much should you budget for your honeymoon? 

This isn’t a simple questions to answer. It does come back to the saying though: You get what you pay for. Typically, your honeymoon will be the highest ticket trip you ever take. Also, take into consideration the destination you select for your honeymoon. Most countries require passports or travel visas- you will need to take that cost into consideration.

Should I book my honeymoon online? 

When booking your honeymoon, I strongly suggest using a travel agent. They have the knowledge of the different resorts and destinations. They have either stayed there themselves or have had clients that did. Also, if something were to go wrong during your honeymoon – having a travel agent to deal with the problem is much easier than using some 800 number. Travel agents can help you get more bang for your buck. They are familiar with the extra amenities you will receive for celebrating your honeymoon.  From room upgrades, breakfast in bed and couples massages to limo transfers and private dinners on the beach.

Mossy Bride by Affairs: Camo Inspired Wedding

In celebration of our upcoming Camo Trunk Show this weekend (10/25-10/26)- this week’s post is all about Camo inspired weddings.

To some, a Camo inspired sounds ridiculous. They just don’t get it!

A Wedding celebration is all about the couple who has decided to spend their forever together. All elements should reflect them, what they love and their style.

Growing up in our rural area, most of us love the outdoors. Some of us hunt, some shoot guns or bows and a muddy four wheeler ride wraps up a fun weekend!

Wouldn’t it be ridiculous NOT to have a little Camo in the mix on your big day?

Join us this weekend! Open Saturday 10-4 and Sunday 12-4- you don’t want to miss this.
