Welcome back to Part 2 of my March Madness weekly blog series! I hope you enjoyed the last blog post, and if you didn't see it, just scroll down a little further from this post ;) Buckle up, this week's post is a long one!!!! I am highlighting a very important vendor that many brides save to hire at the very end of their budget and at the very last minute. I am guilty of being one of those brides.
It is prime planning season, and I am sure you are running around securing and solidifying every last detail of your big day! It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of wedding planning that we forget the true reason for the day. Many of our evenings are spent scrolling through and pinning decor and other trendy new ideas to our Pinterest wedding boards. We browse the aisles at Michael's, throwing a ton of craft items into our carts for the ultimate DIY wedding projects! So many details go into this big day, but really, at the end of the day, those details really don't matter. People don't show up to your wedding to see your beautifully crafted centerpieces. People come to your wedding to share in one of the most important days of your life. But, as the day goes on, and we speak to so many different people, the entire day becomes a blur.
This is where one of the most important wedding vendors in the industry come in. The videographer! Do you remember the look on your moms face when she saw you in your dress for the first time? Or the tears that fell when your groom saw you walking down the aisle? I know I don't....but thankfully, I hired a videographer that captured all of the small moments that I missed. These moments were so important to me, and I kick myself for not hiring my videographer sooner. Like many brides, I was on a strict budget. But, I understood the importance and significance of preserving memories for years to come. When I finally convinced my then-fiancee that these things were more important to me than having the most expensive and elaborate food and decorations, we truly realized that at the end of a wedding day, everything is gone. What you have left to hold onto is your pictures and your wedding film. And I am so beyond thankful that I decided to invest in a wonderful videographer! When we saw our highlight film, we were both in tears, because the entire day came flooding back to us and we truly felt like we were living through the entire day again! Trust me when I say that the whole day will be a complete blur. You NEED to hire a videographer! :)
So, in conclusion, I wanted to highlight two very special people to me! One being our very own wedding videographer, and another who is such a wonderful friend and a member of our local community of creatives! Enjoy some highlights from Anthony from Sparks Productions and Leo from Gonzalez Videography!!
