If you’ve taken a look at our wedding philosophy you’ll notice that we always include the full ceremony and a wedding film. We feel strongly that, if you are going to pay for wedding video, these are the most important to have to look back on your wedding day.
There is something sacred about the wedding ceremony in its’ entirety. Being able to watch it again and hear the words of exhortation that may not have sunk in that day just because of all the nerves…listening to the specific vows you made to each other…hearing the music you chose…all of the special details you carefully planned to honor your coming together as one.
We’ve found that it has been great for our marriage to spend so much time with so many wedding ceremonies. Your own ceremony can serve as a great reminder of your commitment in the rough times. To hear those words of encouragement and to hear the sincerity in your spouse’s voice as they spoke their vows to you and to hear the vows you spoke and ask yourself if you are still honoring them. We really believe that watching your ceremony together regularly (valentine’s day or on your anniversary, perhaps) is a great way to keep that tenderness toward each other and always remember your first love for each other.
The Wedding Film
Our wedding films are much shorter but, we feel, have even greater potential to remind you of the emotions of your day and is a more practical, entertaining way to share your wedding with others. We carefully craft your film to tell your unique story in just a few minutes. These are what you will find examples of here on our website. Please take a moment to watch a few if you haven’t yet. We love condensing and layering the most meaningful aspects of your day into a captivating film that is both powerful and practical. It is a great way to share and celebrate your wedding with loved ones that weren’t able to make it and a fun way to share it again on anniversaries. It can also be a regular reminder to yourselves without the time commitment of sitting down to watch the full ceremony.
We spend a lot of time searching for music, sound bytes, and images for your film. Alone, they may not make the average viewer/listener feel anything but, when layered together, your film has the power to draw in its’ viewers to celebrate your love with you even if they don’t know you personally. We find this incredibly rewarding and worth every minute of labor we spend mulling over and reworking each film until it speaks to us the same story of your love that we were so privileged to come and witness. :)
