K+G’s Charlottesville wedding was filled with so many unique details. Their guests were greeted with champagne and french fries (a snack loved by the couple) upon their arrival to Cocktail Hour 🥂🍟 We love how they incorporated their dog, Charlie, as well!

From the smallest details throughout your day, to capturing all the excitement and emotion of your ceremony and reception— we’re here for it all. We allow you to stay present, so you will never forget the energy of the love in the room and will take you back to those butterfly-in-your-belly moments instantly 🦋

What completes the perfect night? Is it the ambiance, that perfect toast 🥂 or when the Groom dips his Bride during one unforgettable first dance? 🤍 It was an honor to capture these memories to be cherished forever.

Is there really anything better than walking into a room filled with all your favorite people, who are there to dance the night away in celebration of your love? We don’t think so! 🤍

It is safe to say that live streaming has become an essential element for weddings during this time, and we predict this will become the norm for weddings well into the future. So far this year, we’ve had the privilege of professionally live streaming 42 weddings!

Professionally live streaming your I Do’s is the closest way to ensure loved ones who are unable to physically attend, feel part of the experience. We use broadcast quality cameras that provide HD video and clear audio, so your remote guests don't miss a moment. Many times, our couples’ family and friends even dress up at home and take selfies with the live stream!

Are you planning to live stream your wedding? Let us know in the comments.

We received this email recently from a past Bride:

“When our eighth anniversary was approaching, I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to watch our video again and reminisce about our wedding. I am so happy we have a beautiful video to look back on that captured all the special moments of that day. Having a wedding video is priceless and I am so thankful I have this video years later. We showed our little girls the video for the first time and now they ask to watch “Mommy and Daddy’s video”. I’m so happy we are able to share these beautiful memories with our children!” - Mary

We are proud to create these keepsakes that will be cherished by couples and their families, forever ❤️
From the Groom: “To me it was love at first sight: a modern day fairy tale, appropriate for a princess and her prince charming.” ▪️ Would you believe these two first met after Bride Kat crashed Groom Jarryd’s 29th birthday party?

Upon arrival, Kat wished Jarryd a Happy Birthday with a hug. As a result, she successfully spilled a plate full of Chick-fil-a nuggets and samplings from the charcuterie platter on the floor (according to the Jarryd’s take of the evening). “I, in fact, did not want to say hi to the birthday boy but since I crashed his party I might as well thank him for the free food.” - Kat

Kat, however, recalls it was actually Jarryd that went in for the hug first, (after proclaiming he’s a hugger) which caused the chicken nuggets to fall all over the ground. “But I warmly remember Jarryd bending over to help me pick them up and saying, “No, you shouldn’t be picking these up—you’re in a dress!” Forever my gentleman.” - Kat

“The popping sound of the cork, the dancing of stars in our red Solo cups, and the intellectual conversation is what I most remember of that night. Within a week, we were on our first date. Within a month, we were three dates in. The rest is history.” - Jarryd

What an honor it was to document this couple’s love story ❤️

M+K's classic D.C. wedding was nothing short of awe-inspiring! From the tree lined aisle at the ceremony, to the reception drenched with the most immaculate burgundy, gold and emerald hues, each and every detail was executed to perfection. Our favorite part of the day was when M+K saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. Cue the waterworks ❤️ Note: This wedding occurred before the Covid-19 pandemic

J+A first met on the Baylor University campus as undergrads. Upon meeting, the two immediately felt like they had known each other for years. After creating some remarkable memories throughout their time at Baylor, the two moved to Dallas where they started their post-grad life together. From that point, J had known for a long time he wanted to be with A forever 🤍 They got engaged in Austin and said “I Do” in D.C.!

When you envision your wedding day, what moments come to mind? Is it how personal your vows will be? Your Mother helping you get in your dress? Your Father seeing you as a bride for the first time? The First Look? Entering your reception as a married couple?

Regardless of what moments you are thinking of right now, it is inevitable that with all of the wedding day bliss, there will be moments that you'll wish you could remember more vividly. This is especially true as years go by.

From getting ready to grand exit, we are there to capture it all, for you to relive for a lifetime and beyond 💕 Note: This wedding occurred before the Covid-19 pandemic

In fact, you might not realize we are even there! We believe in capturing events as they happen naturally, as opposed to staging and directing.

Today we are live streaming a virtual Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for a non-profit we work with: @mainstreetconnect

Main Street is an inclusive apartment building and community center located in Rockville, Maryland, where 25% of the building’s 70 units are set aside for adults with disabilities and the remaining 75% are affordable housing options for all. It is the first of its kind in the country. Remarks by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Senator Chris Van Hollen and Congressman Jamie Raskin, among others, will be highlighted in this fully virtual event.

We have worked with the founders, Jillian and Scott Copeland, for several years. In fact, Tom filmed their wedding over 20 years ago! We have worked with the Copelands to produce videos for their school (The Diener School) in Potomac and now for Main Street. Not to mention, we have documented many life events for the family throughout these two decades. We can’t think of a bigger honor.

We are proud to be partners of Main Street, where there is inclusivity for all 🧡💙

A+S's video is featured today on the home page of @lovestoriestv! Their D.C. love story started in 2012, when they were both working at @bloomberg. Sam was hired to cover the Senate, while Ana was hired to cover the House. They became close friends and even called themselves “work spouses.” Fast forward 8 years later, they tied the knot and officially became Mr. & Mrs 👩‍❤️‍👨 Thank you for the wonderful feature, @lovestoriestv!

“Thank you SO MUCH for all of your efforts to ensure our wedding day last Sunday was captured in the best light possible! We were so incredibly happy with how the day turned out and you played such a huge role in making that happen for us. From not only capturing the event on film, but to arriving early to test the WiFi, setting up the Zoom live stream, scheduling a test Zoom, and ensuring the technology worked flawlessly - we cannot thank you enough! We have had so many friends and family tell us how amazing the wedding looked on the Zoom and that they felt like they were there in person with us. Considering the COVID environment, it means so much to us that we were able to have the ceremony captured live with such great quality.”- Jordan & Daniel, married on 7/5/20, 250+ guests viewing on Zoom

Live Streaming has become an essential element for weddings during this time. If you decide to move forward with a wedding this year, there will be loved ones unable to attend either due to travel and/or gathering restrictions. Professionally live streaming your special day is the closest way to make your guests feel like they are actually there with you, experiencing your special day 🤍
