So we are glad we ended up engaging a wedding videographer so that we can remember our event and all the details. Highly recommend it if you can extend the budget or you have family located overseas. Some time photos dont translate all of the details or relay all of the little moments that you missed (including the people that were there with you).
Here is our trailer from our recent wedding.

I can’t imagine I would ever watch a wedding video. My cousin got one done and has never watched it and I think I would be the same way. I can see myself looking at pictures though and displaying them around the house. I’m not sure if it is worth the expense for us.

We aren’t paying for a professional. We are going to have a family member use an iPad to record it for us.

@ycare: We hired a videographer because it was something my MIL wanted. We originally only hired him to film the ceremony (only a couple hundred dollars) which was about an hour (20 min set up, 20 min ceremony, 20 min misc). However, our videographer ended up having so much fun at our reception that he decided to stay (didn’t charge us a penny more) and partied with us until 4AM (he started at 6:00 PM lol). We were able to get some incredible footage, and I’m so glad it worked out the way it did. However, I’m not sure I could justify spending more than a few hundred dollars since I will probably only watch our wedding video occasionally.

@ycare: We also hired a videographer and I am SOO glad we did!! There were so many things I got to see in the video that I didn’t the day of, like the entire processional, the recessional because we were the first to leave, the entrance annoucements into the reception and the cocktail hour. It was also nice to hear the speeches again and watch the ceremony again because it all flew by so fast!!

We probably won’t watch it much admittedly except for on anniversaries. But we’re getting it anyway so when we’re old and gray together we can look back at our young selves and laugh and point out how different things are now e.g. music, fashion, hair, dance. We will be able to see people who by that time will probably no longer be around like FH’s parents when they were boogeying with us. And our future children will be able to moan and groan and tease us until they begin planning their weddings at which point they may look back for ideas of what to do and what not to do. Perhaps it will be possible for our grandchildren to see it one day if they can convert it to whatever they use then. It would be amazing to me to have had the chance to see my grandparents or great grandparents at their wedding on video especially now that they’re not around anymore.

I am really glad we did to. Get the highlights video if you dont want four hours of wedding footage. For me it was worth it as I did not see my bridal party or the guest expressions and their experience until we really entered the room.
Thanks @Jesicaldarling 🙂

@Sea_Ashley: Having just received our highlights film and wedding day footage, I totally agree with what you wrote!

I’m weird and I know I’ll watch a video more than I’ll look at pictures. To me pictures don’t capture a moment quite like a video with sound and movement does. Hence why we’re spending way less money on our photographer than our videographer.

I really wish we had. That’s all I’ll say.

I LOVE your video! You should make a post with a recap and vendor reviews because your wedding is SUCH an elegant NYC wedding, I love it!

@JrzyGurl: Thank you so much. Such a lovely message – it made me smile! I feel weird doing a post on a single wedding. We learned a lot planning our own wedding. Its hard work and so happy to share any knowledge.

We hired a wedding videographer because I want to be able to look back and see all the details I probably missed the day of. Granted, it won’t be something I’ll view every day; but I want the opportunity to relive all the highlights of the day in years to come.
