You Can’t Hear the Day Through Photos
While your wedding photos will be absolutely stunning, you can’t hear the sounds of the wedding day through a photo. You won’t be able to hear your new husband or wife saying their vows to you. You won’t be able to hear the song played during your first dance, or your father/daughter dance. You may be able to see the smiles during the toasts at the reception, but you can’t hear what they said, or your guests’ reactions to it all. You won’t be able to hear the emotion of your friends and family throughout the ceremony and reception.
There are so many big moments that you just can’t get through a photo, no matter how hard you try. All of these moments, like vows and toasts, are moments that you will want to remember throughout the rest of your life, and having that video available to you later on will be so appreciated.
You may not have loved that your second cousin did the chicken dance during the reception, but down the road, getting to watch that take place will really bring a smile to your face.
It’s the #1 Regret from Brides
The #1 regret from brides after their wedding day is not getting video coverage of the ceremony and reception. One thing I have learned throughout my time in this industry is that you can always take things away after the wedding, but you can’t recreate something when everything is said and done.
Wedding videos offer the ability to relive your day to the fullest, and offers the best possible way to see moments you may have even missed! Being a bride is very time consuming, and it’s easy to miss some parts of your day, but having a video can let you see things you may have not gotten to see.
Having a wedding video is something that you will be able to share with loved ones and even watch yourself as time goes on. Imagine a few years down the road, while you are sitting in the living room of your first home with your new spouse, getting to watch the day you both vowed to share your lives together. You could cuddle up on the couch, break open a glass of champagne, and reminisce together on all of the joys that you shared together on this day. I personally couldn’t imagine anything more romantic than this simple moment together.
One of the best parts of the wedding day is getting to have most of you and your new spouse’s family and friends all together at the same time. This could include having your grandma and grandpa who live in another state, or maybe your great aunt and uncle. We all know that traveling is expensive, but having this opportunity to see everyone together is something that not only you and your spouse can share, but also your family and friends can enjoy as well. In 10-20 years from now, when your older relatives have moved on, you will have actual video footage of them. You can hear their voice, watch them laugh and dance, and listen to the stories that they share for years and years after.
A highlight reel is also something that you can share with friends and family who were unable to attend the event, which makes them feel included, even if they couldn’t make it there in person.
