I'm Kate-- Associate Wedding Planner and lover of learning! I'm here to provide perfectly polished lists that teach soon-to-be newlyweds how to make their dream wedding a reality. We believe every love story is unique and beautiful, and we can't wait to bring your vision to life. Welcome to the family!
Imagine five or ten years from now, you and your sweet soulmate are reminiscing about your wedding. In your head you remember a day full of love, fun, family and friends. You remember how beautiful the speeches were and how funny it was when your sister made that joke abou--- wait, what was the joke? Or was it your best friend who made the joke… Don’t you wish that you could hear that speech again? Didn’t your uncle do a surprise break dance at the end of the night? Oh gosh… What else did you miss that day?
There’s a two-word solution to avoid this patchy memory situation: wedding video. Wedding video gives you a whole new way to relive your wedding day. You can hear your vows being said for the first time again, see your family beaming with joy for you and your new spouse, and most importantly- you can relive it over and over again. The best day of your life together shouldn’t be limited to a few hours of bliss that is then forgotten or left to memory. You can show your kids your wedding day on top of the beautiful photos of the day. You can watch it when times get tough to remind you of how much you love each other. You can keep it forever. There will be no worry about trying to take in the entire day at once, but instead you can be present in every moment on your day because you have the peace of mind that your videographer will capture everything you might not be able to see or remember years down the road. Do you need more justification? Have we convinced you yet?
If not, here are our top 3 reasons for why hiring a wedding videographer is a must and not a maybe:
1. Audio makes up 50% of your wedding day, and video is the only vendor that can capture it
A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say, but video is the vendor that can let you hear those words. Video gives you background to the beautiful photos-- the reason behind the laughter, the sound to the late night dance party, the vows behind the love.
2. Do it not only for yourself, but for your family and guests.
Witness the wedding from your guests point of view. With the unknown circumstances in today’s world, who knows if some of your favorite people can even be there in person on your day-- but now they’ll get the easy-to-share sights and sounds of your wedding.
3. Never forget your favorite moments and people, reliving the day forever
Take in your most cherished memories in real time, such as your first dance, toasts from your favorite people, and all of the in- between moments you may have missed in person. In addition, your wedding day may be the last or only footage and memories that you have with elderly family members. Help memorialize your loved ones for the years following with your treasured wedding video.
More proof can be found in this article by The Huffington Post on why 98% of brides regret not budgeting for wedding video. Even if you think you don’t need the video or that you won’t ever watch it-- you won’t realize your regret until it’s too late. Take it from myself and fellow creatives: wedding videography is a necessity.
A wedding videographer is doesn't have to be out of your budget, either. Wedding videographers typically offer levels to their packages. You can choose shorter highlight reels that capture specific moments, all the way up to 8-10 minute films that leave no moment behind. Ever wanted to star in the most perfect movie of your life? Your wedding video is your chance. Although some couples hold off on booking a wedding videographer until the last minute, we recommend that they are one of the first vendors you book so you can have someone who’s style and personality you love. Your wedding planner (that's us!) can help you find your perfect videographer who cares about your story and capturing your unique love (one that fits your wedding budget).
In short-- you need a wedding video. More than just a sweet memory, it is an heirloom that immortalizes your celebration for generations to come.
