Posts Tagged ‘Las Vegas Wedding Video’

On the fence about whether you should get a wedding video or not? Did you know that one of the biggest regrets brides have after their wedding day is that they didn’t get a wedding video. You’ve probably read all the pros and cons about wedding videos, but here are the two most overlooked reasons as to why having a videographer on your wedding day is more important than you think.

1. After months and months of planning, your wedding day finally arrives, and it goes by in a flash. There is so much of your wedding day that you forget or never see. The pre-ceremony prep, your vows, the ceremony itself, the reception, all go by so fast you hardly have time to take it in. What makes a wedding video so different from wedding photographs, is that you get to see and hear everything that you missed or forgot. Ask a friend or family member who were recently married… ask what they remember about their ceremony….their reception. Chances are, a lot less than you would think. A wedding video brings it all back, and then some, and let’s you relive your wedding day over and over again.

2.  You always hear from people older than you how fast the years fly by. Well, in this case they’re right. Ask a friend or family member who is celebrating their 5th, 10th, or 20th wedding anniversary, and they will tell you they can’t believe how fast the years have gone by. How long has it been since you graduated from high school or college? 10 year reunion coming up? Went by quick didn’t it. With a wedding video, you can go back and relive your wedding day like it was yesterday. With the HD quality of today’s cameras, you’ll experience it as if it were yesterday. Do your parents have a wedding video? Do you wish they did? Can you imagine your kids watching grandma and grandpa getting married? Do you wish you could see your grandparents wedding ceremony? How young everyone looked? A wedding video is not only for you, but for your family and future generations to come.

Observations for 2014:

Looking back at all the weddings we did this past year, we noticed a few trends and thought we would chime in concerning some of these.

DJ’s:  We’ve had couples hire friends or less expensive DJ’s before, but there seemed to be an increase this year. A DJ can make or break your reception. They are the Master of Ceremonies for your reception. A successful DJ is entertaining, can read the crowd (knowing what to play when), is interactive with the guests, works well with the vendors, particularly with the photographer and the videographer, and creates a fun party atmosphere. The “less successful” ones have almost no interaction with the crowd, think their only job is to play music, whether people are dancing to it or not, offers almost no communication with the photographer/videographer, which can sometimes lead to possible missed shots of events, and doesn’t have a basic timeline of the reception, which unfortunately lends itself to a disorganized, somewhat boring reception. We have found that usually the “less successful” ones happen to be friends of the couple, or haven’t done many weddings, if any at all, or just don’t really care. Check reviews, ask other couples you know, and spend a little bit more money on your DJ if need be. This is your wedding reception. You want it fun, memorable, and for it to be the best it can be.

Officiant:  We’ve seen an uptick in “friends of the family” this year performing ceremonies for the bride and groom. Most do a good job, even though this is not their specialty, but please, please, please….make sure they invite the guests to sit down after the bride has made it to the altar. Having your guests stand throughout the ceremony… and no they will not sit down unless prompted to… makes it difficult for the secondary video camera to get a decent shot of the ceremony depending on the layout of the venue. Also, you certainly don’t want your guests to have to stand up for 20 minutes or so, especially on those warm days.

Photographer: We understand photographers can be very expensive. There are also some talented photographers that are budget friendly. As videographers, we try to keep our prices budget friendly. Again, we have seen an increase in “friends” doing the photography at some weddings. Ask any photographer, weddings are one of the most difficult types of photography there is. Besides not having any experience at doing weddings, many of these friends have no experience at posing groups of people, let alone the Bride and Groom, fumble with their equipment, miss (or almost miss) special moments, get into and ruin some of our shots, and miss opportunities for some great shots(sunsets,locations) because of bad planning in the limited time they have to take photos, especially post ceremony. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars for a good photographer if it isn’t in your budget. We have some in town ranging from $900-$1500.00 that do very nice work. But if anything, hire one (friend or professional) who has had experience shooting weddings. Some of the brides we spoke to after their wedding day admitted being disappointed in their photos and realized they shouldn’t have had a “friend” shoot their wedding. This is a one time shot….no do overs.

  • What if it rains on our outdoor ceremony?  This is Las Vegas…chances are pretty slim. Most of the wedding we do are outdoor weddings. We have never had one rained out. Some close calls…but we have never been rained out.
  • I want our vows to be perfect.  Write your own. Don’t rely on the officiant to say how you feel about each other…speak your own words to each other. How perfect is that.
  • I’m really shy…I don’t like to be in front of large groups of people.  These are your family and friends. Once you get up there, you won’t even notice 95% of them. Just concentrate on the task at hand. Look into each other’s eyes, speak your vows slowly and clearly, make sure his ring is sized to never come off, and follow all the officiants instructions. Everything else will be a blur. That’s why you are having your wedding videotaped…remember.
  • What if I’m running late?   Your Wedding can’t start without you. Just don’t be too late. There is a large group of people who can’t wait to see how beautiful you look.
  • I Hate Having My Photo Taken.  Too late now. Get ready to have hundreds of photos taken of the two of you….and you will cherish everyone of them….and you’ll look beautiful.
  • I don’t know how to dance…I’m a little worried about our first dance.   You and just about every other Bride and Groom. Unless you’ve taken lessons, you’re in the same boat as almost everyone else. Pick a slow song, stand close to one another, rock back and forth, look into each others eyes, and you’ll be fine.
  • What if things don’t go perfectly?   Perfectly? Wedding? Not gonna happen. A lot of ingredients go into your Wedding Day. Wedding professionals, guests, weather, traffic, transportation, venues, accommodations, and all those little miscellaneous items that took you hours and hours of work and planning. No wedding day goes perfectly. Instead of stressing out, remember, if anything does go wrong, one day you’ll just end up laughing about it. You’ve done all the hard work, your wedding day is here, so now just relax and enjoy this special moment in your life. There may/will be bumps, but don’t let them ruin your day. By the end of the day, you will have been married, danced, partied, and had a great time….honest.
  • If you’ve hired the best professional vendors you could find: Planner, Venue, Florist, Officiant, Photographer, DJ, Videographer, Hair & Make-up, Caterer, Bakery, etc…, let them do the jobs you hired them to do so you can relax and enjoy your wedding day. No matter what happens, your wedding day will always be a day you will never forget.

Mo had been planning her Las Vegas Wedding for over a year, and when the day came, everything was how she had imagined it to be.  Planning a destination wedding from Australia was not an easy task, but Mo was up for the challenge, and she came through with flying colors. She had her wedding ceremony at the lovely Flamingo Garden Chapel. Just a couple of hours later, they renewed their vows with Elvis as the officiant at the Graceland Wedding Chapel. Party and celebration was at Maggiano’s Restaurant on the Strip.  Festivities included a photo booth, an Elvis performance, showgirls, and a visit from Darth Vader and a couple of Stormtroopers for a world class lightsaber battle.  Her reception screamed Las Vegas…and everyone loved every minute of it. Guests came from around the world – Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Africa, and the United States. We wish Mo & Casey a lifetime of happiness…and may the force be with you always.
