Thanks! Although I loved my veil I do regret what I spent on it. I bought it at the same place I got my dress- a store called Bridal Reflections in NY. The veil was $625 : ( It was a bad splurge but I was caught in the moment haha. I am certain you can find a similar veil for much less. I only had it on for the ceremony and a few pics on the beach. After that, it was too breezy to control so I took it off. Also- the beach was too windy for the parasols I got my girls. They aren't in any pics, I was disappointed about that.
The videographer was not present when I got ready because I did a first look with my photographer and they only cover an hour an a half prior to the actual wedding. I got ready at 10:00 am and the wedding was at 5. In retrospect, I wish I had offered to pay extra to have him there for longer. He missed our first look as well. I have the pictures of it, but not the video. I didn't think to ask at the time though. It's because we got ready off-site. Had we gotten married at the resort, we would have gotten ready later, not done a first look, taken our pictures after (most brides leave a gap between ceremony and cocktail hour for pictures) and then it all would have been on video. It is what it is though- no regrets. I was the one who was hellbent on having a Catholic church ceremony. My husband didnt really care either way.
