Save the Drama For Your Momma (Please Don't!)

I believe there is are a couple events in life that really define and reveal your friendships. One thing that always seems to happen with the stress of the wedding is tensions between mom and daughter and daughter and bridesmaids. It seems to be somewhat of an inevitable conflict. One thing that we forget though during the stress of the wedding is that all these people are to be friends with us afterwards. Yes the wedding is about you, yes the wedding is incredibly important, yes this is one of the biggest days of your life, but at what point is having an amazing day more important than your family and friends?

One thing that I realized after getting married is not much changes in your life after the wedding except that you now have someone to experience lif with him. Your dreams will remain the same, your hobbies will stay the same, and the friendships you have between people in your family will remain the same as well. I don't claim to be a relationship guru but one thing to keep in the forefront of your mind when planning your wedding is maintaining the integrity of the relationships around you no matter how stressful it may be!  

Good luck on all your wedding planning!

One Truth About Every Wedding

I remember back when I went to college. I was getting my AA in audio productions. Nearly every night was spent way past 1 am by myself in my families large leather couch with a Xbox headset strapped to me playing HALO.  I would get up in the morning barely putting on matching clothes and drive to school. I would crank up the radio...and then I was there!  Mind you I did not teleport. I just don't remember any of the drive. Scary right!?

Clearly I was conscience and awake or I couldn't have made it there. My sleep deprivation did hold me back from fully experiencing my drive to school though. 


In a very similar way all weddings have this hidden factor that prevents them from experiencing and remembering all of their wedding day...being busy! Your day is filled with emotions, decisions, and events. Usually it's been preceded by days and weeks of setup and work leading up to it. I know the 2 weeks leading up to my wedding were insanely busy. I certainly didn't remember everything during my wedding day.  I was SO glad we had a wedding film to remember it all!  Now we can remember my hilarious vows for all time. haha! 

Just like my sleep deprived drives to school, don't allow the busyness of your wedding day to dictate how much you remember!  Be sure to check out our wedding films and see if your a good fit for your wedding. If so head over to the contact page and send me an email so we can schedule a consultation. Thanks!

The Only Things You Take Away From Your Wedding

You've been dreaming about this moment your whole life. Quite honestly one of the biggest decisions you'll ever look into your future spouse's eyes and pledge your undying love for them. Tears roll down your face. You turn and walk down the aisle, husband and wife. You do your dance, quickly eat, try and thank everyone, try and dance some more. Cake, tosses, toasts, last dance, leave. Wow! Four hours later and it's all over. Hours of planning, decisions, purchases, sweet tears and arguments and it's over!  Now imagine your sitting in your new house with your spouse. What do you have to remember that day? What did you take away? 

Gifts?  Check.  

Cake top?  Check.  

Pictures?  Check.  


Now think of a conversation you had a day you remember everything you said?  Do you remember everything they said?  Now try a week from now. Now try a month from now.

I don't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, but I do have a wedding film that I can pop in at any time and hear my wife and I's vows. So what can you take home with you?  How about the most precious thing about life itself, unforgettable memories
