GET THE VIDEO!!! You won't even notice the video. You will have so much adreneline and happiness that it won't even bother you. And if it does make you a little tense, have some champagne. Jay hates hates videos and we were both hamming it up because we were just so happy and a wee bit tipsy. These are meories you will want to share with your children....so get it!!!

After reading this thread, I decided to watch part of my video. Its so long that my husband and I haven't had the time to watch it all.

 

My favorite parts have been watching my guests having so much fun dancing and watching the toasts again. You miss out on a lot of this stuff as you are dancing yourself and making the social 'rounds.

 

I have to admit that watching me give my thank you speech after all those cocktails was slightly painful but hilarious at the same time. A year or years from now, I'm sure the painfulness will go away and I will be laughing my head off.

 

The photos should def. be the bigger investment but I'm so happy that I got the video.

Thanks for posting this, been having the same debate. I am not real big on watching myself on video. Plus how much do you get taped, just ceremony or the whole day. We have many people who will not be able to attend I want to be able to share it with them at home.

 

After attending my niece and nephews graduation this weekend I saw a video my sister did for them. It was a combination of video clips she had taken over the years along with still photos. It was set to music and the music would fade out during the short clips of film so you could hear the sound. IT WAS AMAZING!!!

 

Right now I am leaning towards having her do a documentary style video of the whole week they are with us (we are doing a wedding cruise before honeymoon). She can do the 'bride and groom interviews' I have seen in other professional videos, interview guests, etc. Then when we get home she can add video clips and pics of us growing up to clips and pics of the ceremony and trip. This way we have a great video we can run in a loop during the AHR.

 

Since you don't like to watch video of yourself either shortened clips to show others might be a great idea. Then you can always keep the full video locked away just for you. Carla wink.gif

That is just what I wanted to make. Something like this: YouTube - Levi and Christinas Wedding


That would be what I'd share with people. The full thing would probably just be for us & parents.

Ok if the only thing holding you up is awkwardness and being uncomfortable I dont think you will have to worry. I guarantee you will not even notice- ANYTHING! Our photogs were all up in our business on some shots (at least that's what some guests said) and I had no idea. I didn't even see them or anyone else besides Steve and the minister.

Ahhh- well Mike won't know the difference either- LOL Promise- it's all just a jumble of emotions and the last thing you think about is cameras.

Mike said we can do it as long as I don't make him watch it. He hates seeing himself on video. Also, Mike Canterell is available so we are doing it!!! It's still not booked. But, it looks like we'll be getting a video.

Ok I had decided to use the $500 to get a $400 camcorder instead but now you guys are making me reconsider about the video. My available packages are $800 for one camera, ceremony only, 1 DVD and film to DVD edit whatever that is or $1200 for 2 camera, ceremony only, 2 DVDs and a standard edit. Those are the two cheapest options and they are the exclusive videographer for the Chapel.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
