Kim and Sean seriously lucked out. The day before their wedding was a mess of rain and thunderstorms. Luckily, by the time their wedding day came around the sky cleared, humidity dropped, and the sun was out for a perfect summer day wedding.
Upon my first conversation with Kim I knew this wedding would be special. Kim is the kind of person you speak to once and immediately feel like close friends. During our first phone call I mentioned to her that Mark and I were going on a trip to Lincoln, NH and she immediately shared some awesome recommendations around Loon Mountain, a place where her and Sean visited often. They are seriously the sweetest couple!
Kim and her bridesmaids got ready at the Mirbeau Inn & Spa while Sean and his groomsmen got ready at their family beach house on Priscilla Beach. The two were married at St. Bonaventure Church, the same church where Kim's parents were married. We ventured to the Plymouth Yacht Club for their formals, where Kim and Sean enjoyed a quick picturesque boat ride around the harbor. Following that, we headed out on golf carts to some beautiful spots on the grounds of the Pinehills Golf Club. I need to take a moment to emphasize how badass Kim was while taking photos… I can’t even tell you how many spiders were crawling up in her veil. She didn’t even flinch!!
When Mark and I first walked into their reception room at the Pavilion at Pinehills we were blown away. Everything looked SO beautiful, from the huge floral arrangements on the tables to the open wooden beams with string lights hanging over the dance floor. The only way I can think of describing it is a "chic rustic beach vibe"...if that makes sense! It was gorgeous how everything came together. Shout out to Beach Plum Floral for absolutely killing it!
Kim and Sean have the best group of friends! They were super fun and definitely knew how to party! And it never stopped thanks to their awesome band, Radiance. (Fun fact, the lead singer, Jackie Foster, was in the top 8 of The Voice last season!)
The dance floor stayed packed the whole night, it was a great wedding! One highlight was when the band let the father of the bride take over on drums! How awesome is that! We loved watching him rock out with his daughter and new son-in-law, jamming along in the crowd. All in all, it was such a great night spent with the best couple! We're so thrilled to release their wedding film!

It's National Wedding Planning day! If you're recently engaged, you've probably already started thinking about your wedding details- your date, your venue, etc. You may already even have a photographer who took your engagement photos. But have you given any thought to a wedding videographer?
Couples often push wedding videography to the side until closer to their date and some decide to totally forgo it for their big day. I'm here today to tell you to hire a videographer at your wedding- I cannot stress this enough! Maybe I am a bit bias, but honestly, video is the only way to truly relive your wedding day. Photographs are great, but it is 2018 and photos just aren’t enough. I cannot fathom the thought of having my entire wedding day pass me by without ever again hearing my vows, or the words my father said in his welcome speech, or the roaring laughter of guests during the best man speech. The raw emotion caught on camera, the real sounds and words spoken will never come across the same way in photographs as they do in video. That being said, it is 2018 and couples still struggle with the thought of hiring a wedding videographer.
Photography is the norm, right? Everyone hires a wedding photographer. In fact, it’s probably one of the first things people think about once they get engaged. I certainly have nothing against photography, I think it is very important and a necessity for your wedding- but I also think wedding videography does not get the credit it deserves. The time, effort and creative ability it takes to handcraft a wedding film- in my opinion, far surpasses that of photography. It takes an enormous amount of time going through all the many hours of footage from the day. We spend days, even weeks after your wedding going through all the footage, carefully choosing music, and hand-crafting a one-of-a-kind, cinematic video that is unique to you and your wedding day. It takes a tremendous amount of creative ability and talent to create a video that not only looks good, but flows good as well.
That being said, I cannot stress enough how important it is to hire a good videographer. Like everything else in the world, there is always a difference in quality in the products and services you buy- and this doesn’t change for wedding videography. To be honest, you get what you pay for. If you want to hire the cheapest videographer you can find, you will likely receive a not-so-great product and be left with a feeling of regret for not spending the extra dollars for hiring someone more experienced. When it comes to wedding videography, you want to hire people you can trust- people who are not only passionate about what they do, but who have proper experience and education. Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion that has months and months of preparation and build up, and then in a flash, it’s gone. Once it’s ended, all you have left are the photos and what you can remember in your mind. Your wedding film is the only way to actually go back and relive, and actually hear the laughter, the speeches, your vows! How amazing is it that we live in a time where we have the capabilities to capture all the details of that very special day.
But even so, couples still struggle with the cost of hiring a videographer. If you’re in this boat, let me ask you a question- how much are you spending on the floral arrangements at your wedding? The bouquets, the centerpieces, the flowers for your ceremony... How much are you putting towards your dress? Your cake? Your DJ? The truth is that all of the things you're spending money on, with the exception of your photographer, aren't going to last beyond your big day. The flowers will die, the decorations will be thrown out, the surplus of dessert will go bad, and all that will be left from the most important day of your life is nothing but a mere memory. That's why it is SO important to invest in the things that will preserve your wedding day forever. Videography is the best investment you will make for your big day, simply because it is the only way you will be able to truly relive your wedding.
So the next time you are contemplating on getting videography for your wedding, I hope you sincerely understand it's value. Investing in videography should not be a question. It should not take a second thought. Seriously, if you’re reading this, you’re getting married! That’s so exciting! It’s going to be one of the greatest days of your life, but let me tell you...it will fly by. You only get one wedding, so remember to invest in the things that will last beyond the day. Do yourself a favor and hire a wedding videographer! I can say with the utmost certainty that you will not regret it, but I can guarantee you will regret it if you choose not to get one!
