Okay..its not what you think. This morning we were indulging in the enjoyable recollection of past events. More specifically we were reminiscing about our own wedding day nearly 6 years ago. At the time of our wedding, we had absolutely zero knowledge of the wedding industry. In fact, before we even dived into the planning phase, we decided to pack up our friends and family and head to Mexico for a beach side wedding and celebration. (A good sign you left things until the last minute is when you FIND your wedding dress AND have it tailored the DAY OF the wedding. Where else can you find a seamstress who will tailor a dress for you in under an hour for $25 bucks?..needless to say, we left a good tip)
But back to this morning..As we talked about the great memories of that day, we found ourselves in the position that 98% of other couples who don’t hire a videographer find themselves in. And that is the unfortunate regret that goes along with not having your wedding filmed. Our memories of that day are fading as the years go by. We know how we felt, but we don’t remember what we said to each other. Our family and friends gave amazing, heartfelt toasts, but we only have photos of us wiping tears away. What we wouldn’t give to have those special moments on film! We have beautiful photos of our wedding day, yet the sounds and the emotions are forever gone that only a film can bring back to life.
Of all the services that are utilized on your wedding day, you only walk away with your photos, your film, and your dress. There will never be another moment in time where you celebrated or will celebrate with that special group of people. We can tell you 6 years of marriage has flown by and we no longer look and sound the same way we once did…just as someone married 40 years will tell you the same. A wedding film is so much more than something to share on Facebook or watch once a year on your anniversary. Long after you are gone, your wedding film will serve as a memory that will never be forgotten. Generations of your family will get to enjoy that one moment in time.
No matter who films your wedding, the important thing is to document the day. Please do not be one of the 98%.
