Those interested to see what are the best Christian wedding songs to be played as soundtracks for a wedding video can enter these sites and discover them: christianmusic.about.com, whatchristianwanttoknow.com, brides.com, weddings.lovetoknow.com and jollynotes.com. The songs found here can be played at the wedding too.
Basically, the songs these sites talk about are these ones: “The Day Before You” by Matthew West, “For You” by Michael W Smith, “First Love Song” by Across the Sky, “Not Living In The In Between” by Bebo Norman, “You’ve Got Me” by Steven Curtis Chapman, “Ave Maria” by Franz Schubert, “Bind Us Together” by Bob Gilman, “Love Divine, All Love Excelling” by Charles Wesley and John Zundel.
It is also mentioned that if you want to play one of these Christian songs, you have to pay for them. I mean you will not address a band to play this song; if you don't have the money to invite the artist that sings the song, you should listen to the song using your computer. And to be capable of running that song, you must buy it. Of course, if we are talking about artists that have died, it is natural that you don't have any other option than to play their music from CDs or DVDs.
Because weddings are full of love, the music played at the wedding should reflect this too. You can find all sorts of charts on the sites that I have named and also on others. What is important is to play only the songs that characterize you and your partner. If for example “Ave Maria” is not for you, you should avoid playing this song, even though it is a beautiful one and everyone tells you this. If you don't like it, you must not play it. After all, it is your wedding, not theirs. You have to rely more on your feelings and thoughts than on others’.
Many restaurants include a repertoire already, but if you're not satisfied with it, you can always discuss with the manager of that venue and change it according to your desires. Christians say that a good thing to do on your wedding is to listen to music from your own country. This means that if you are an European, you must not listen to American songs, if you take into consideration this belief. What do you think, is it good? Like I have said earlier, if you try to satisfy all, you will remain unhappy, so play the music you want and if they want to enjoy it, they will. So choose the music that seems suitable for such an event and make sure you like it.
You can make wedding bows in your house, saving important money for other wedding activities and products. If you want to find a video that shows you how to create the perfect wedding bow, you have to enter YouTube and simply write what you want to find. But I want to recommend something different; taking into account that bows are interesting handmade products (those that are handmade, that is), today I want to discuss with you about how to create wedding bows, after reading an article on save-on-crafts.com.
First of all, you have to know that wedding bows are not all of them the same. We can have floral bows, graduated loop bows, tailored bows, basic faux bows, puffy bows, picture hanger bows, layered bows, triple floral bows and many others.
Floral bows are the most popular ones, probably because they have the largest variety of loop sizes. You can make a large loop by using the satin or other material that you use around the outside of the bow and then by gradually decreasing the amount of fabric used towards of the center. The operation is extremely easy and I will describe it for you. The first thing you need to do is to cut a portion of the material you want to use; we have selected satin, because this is the most appropriate for a wedding. Let's say that you have selected 1 m of satin. The next thing that is in order is to pinch the ribbon and make a loop, leaving the desired length for the remaining material. This is the so-called “tail”. Then you will continue making loops until you will remain without satin. However, if you don't secure the center of the bow with a wire or cotton, your flower will not be stable. If you use wires, you need to buy them from specialized stores, that sell accessories and tools for handmade products. After this, you have to fan out the loops and cut the tails at a certain angle.
Another great wedding bow is the layered one, that contains two or more separate bows, connected one to another, thanks to the use of glue or simply by twisting the wires that you have used when you have created them. Usually, they use different colors and patterns, so that to create a unique design. The operation is much more easier than the first one, because it assumes you to use, as I have said earlier, two or more separate bows. To be more precise, two or more floral bows, that can be manufactured by following the previous method.
Sun Wedding Videos is a company that offers videography services for those that plan to get married. They are characterized by several features such as: personalized service, contemporary digital video custom tailored, according to the desires of the marrying couple and discrete coverage. They are proud to consider themselves among the best videographers in North Carolina, United States.
The one that has started this business in Winston Salem, Raleigh and Charlotte is Mark Sundloff, that can be contacted at this number: 336-251-4281. This information appears on the company's Website: sunweddingvideos.com. If you're interested to see the packages offered by this company, you can always enter the aforementioned site or e-mail the team in order to receive a personalized offer. You can use this e-mail address, as provided on their site: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will discover by entering the site that there are no classic packages, like other companies offer, such as for example Package A, which includes 8 hours of coverage, one videographer and your video on a DVD or Blu-ray, Package B, which includes 9 hours of coverage and so on and so forth. All you can find if you click on the Packages tab is that all the offers provided by this company can be customized by you according to your needs and budget. I like this thing, because it means that even those that have only $500, let's say, to spend on videography services, can address them. If the company said that their basic package is $1000, most likely those that don't have this kind of money will never contact them. If you don't know how expensive or cheap the basic package is, you will contact the company, in order to find out. This is a sort of a marketing strategy and it is really good that this company uses it.
Nonetheless, they say their services start from $595 and can reach up to $1800. They say that for this money, you will receive a full-day coverage of your wedding, personalized service and a custom edited film, that will be presented on a DVD. You can visualize sample films of this company by clicking on Sample Films, another tab available on this site.
So basically this is a site with a little information, that still captures your attention, mostly because they do not present all that might interest you, like for example how many videographers you will have at the wedding, if you will have more than one, how many hours are covered, if the bride and groom’s preparations are taken into account as well and also other information. You have to contact them in order to find out this.
Where else can you find better information related to the Asian wedding photographers and videographers than on the site named asianweddingphotography.com? Even if the name of the site refers only to photography, they speak also about the potential videography packages that you can buy. They needed to capture your attention by writing “Asian” and “wedding” in their name. It is obvious they refer to videography as well, because in general these photo and video packages come together.
We will discuss first about the wedding photography service which can be received from this company. I have to tell you that although we are discussing about an Asian wedding photography company, this is based in London, but they provide a wide range of wedding video services for the Asian brides and grooms, that looks for a unique wedding video or that simply want to celebrate their wedding in their own style and based on their tradition. If you are an English woman or man, I don't see how you can be attracted to this for you wedding, but if you are born in Bangladesh or Pakistan, for example, I see a great connection between an Asian wedding and you. So this company is mostly dedicated to the English people, that have Asian roots and live in London, Kent, Leeds, Nottingham, Coventry, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle or other United Kingdom cities and towns.
But let's discuss about the traditional albums that will be offered by this company, if you select their services. I have to tell you that you are the ones responsible for your outfits. This company only offers video and photo services; they do not dress you as well. Wedding albums are acid free ivory/white, handmade with a golden or silver oval frame. The album contains information related to your wedding day. This is the so-called Wedding Page. As you can see, you will benefit of a photo album, like they used to do in the past, not of a CD. Photos will be mounted onto the pages using photo corners, exactly as your grandma used to do. I have to say that I pretty much enjoy this approach, although I recommend a CD with digital photos as well. The available albums can have between 20 and 40 pages, between 40 and 80 or more than 80.
Related to the wedding videos, we are told that they are rendered in Full HD, that you will benefit of wedding video specialists, capable of offering the best wedding video possible. This one contains a short story about your wedding day, the full wedding film and other options, selected by the grooms.
Before ordering the services of a videography company, you have to visualize some samples of the wedding videos that have been made by that company. It would be great also if you would find reviews regarding the company, because on their own site, most likely you will encounter only positive comments.
A very good company that I recommend is Forever Video, whose site can be accessed at forever-video.com. There you can read more about this company, check some event videos, photo samples, see what are the available video packages, read testimonials and contact the company.
I like very much that it is mentioned the style of the wedding, not only the name of the grooms. For example we have Charlene and Jordan Italian wedding, Michael and Momo Chinese wedding, Diane and Dino Polish wedding and so on. This company offers services in Toronto and New York, in other words in Canada and United States also. They can come to your wedding, even if you organize it somewhere else, not in Toronto or New York. Obviously, you will have to pay for their trip.
Speaking of the wedding packages that are available from this company, we have to say that you can benefit of 3 packages: Premium Package ($995), Grand Package ($1495) and Majestic ($1995).
Related to the first package, you will benefit of only one videographer and up to 6 hours of video coverage of the wedding ceremony and reception. For the wedding ceremony, the grooms will wear of a Wireless microphone. This package will provide 3 DVDs in hard cases with photos from the wedding and one fully edited wedding video.
The second package, as well as the third one, has also one videographer. The difference is that the second one has a video coverage of up to 10 hours, that includes not only the ceremony and wedding reception, but also the bride and groom's preparation and the walk in the park, that is usually done by most of the couples on their wedding day. Obviously, in this case too, the grooms will have a Wireless microphone for the wedding ceremony. The wedding video will be presented on a chaptered DVD and the photos, on 3 DVDs. Optional, the new family can thank at the end of the wedding video or at the beginning to those that have helped to them with the wedding and all the events related to it.
The Majestic package comes with up to 15 hours of video coverage, offers a finished and fully edited wedding video, 4 DVDs in hard cases with photos from the wedding and optional video highlights presented on the Internet.
In America, there are thousands of companies that offer wedding video services. For example, if we refer only to California, to Los Angeles (to be more precise), we encounter several hundreds of companies that are ready to provide you with the video services you want.
One of these companies is Adept Eye, a videography company, that offers services in Los Angeles and Orange County. They can eternalize your wedding day into cinematic style HD video, that will be available after the wedding on a DVD and Blu-ray disc. You can share your memories with your friends easier by using a video, compared to sharing photos.
This company has 4 available packages, the first one being the most expensive one. They are: Epic Film, Featured Film, Indie Film and CSPAN Package. Epic Film is $3995 and includes 10 hours of coverage, 5 cameras during ceremony (the highest amount of cameras that I have ever encountered since I write about videography companies), 5 cameras during reception, 3 videographers at the ceremony, 3 at the reception, 3 (the same people) at the pre-ceremony events. You will also receive services such as: on camera lighting, audio recording from ceremony and reception, advanced editing, lavaliere mic during ceremony. These services are provided by the rest of the packages as well.
Featured Film is $2795 and includes the same coverage time. Differences start to appear related to the cameras available during ceremony (4), cameras during reception (3) and number of videographers. At the ceremony, you will benefit of 2 people, at the reception, of the same 2 people and at the pre-ceremony events, of 2 people as well.
Indie Film Package is dedicated to those that feel that they need to express they are Americans. This is a great chance for those that have no boundaries in their clothing style, way of behaving or working to show they are different. This package is $1995 and includes 8 hours of coverage, 3 cameras during ceremony, 2 cameras during reception, 2 videographers at the ceremony, one at the reception and 2 at the pre-ceremony events. For all the packages presented here, you benefit of samples. They will help you select the package you consider right for you. Taking into account that this is a day in a lifetime, we recommend the $4000 package.
The cheapest one is the CSPAN Package ($795). In the case of this package, you will not benefit of a coverage of the pre-ceremony events, you will have only 6 hours of coverage, 2 cameras during ceremony, one camera during reception, one videographer at the ceremony and one, at the reception.
Those that plan their wedding in Hawaii, must know what are the best companies that offer videography services in Hawaii. After all, the thing that remains is the video with all your memories. Photos are good as well, but videos are great, this is the reason for which I recommend only the best companies in the articles I write. Yesterday, I have recommended you CraneMedia, a company that provides besides videography services, also photography services. Today, I will recommend another company, that offers you even more options related to videography.
The name of this company is IMF Visions and the packages offered by it are: Pearl, Emerald, Diamond, Sapphire and Gem Collection.
We will start with the first one, the Pearl package, which is a ceremony package, simple and refined. This one has the price of $1499 plus tax and it covers your entire ceremony. Besides video services, photos will be taken as well. You will benefit of two professional broadcast quality cameras and of a TV/movie director that will supervise the entire filming process. The video will include opening titles, graphics and animations. This can be discussed with the happy couple or, if the grooms have total faith in this videography company, they will be provided entirely by IMF Visions. Also, another thing related to this package is that you will have Wireless microphones on you, that will capture your vows. The DVD will come in a one-of-a-kind customized crystal case. This ceremony will be filmed for 60 minutes, but this is an interval in which most of the ceremonies are completed, so 60 minutes is more than enough.
The second product is the Emerald package, which is an all-day package, providing an enhanced refinement. Before speaking about this product, I want to say that the rest of the packages will be described in tomorrow’s article. First of all, the price of the Emerald package is of $3499 plus tax. Obviously, the entire ceremony will be filmed and you will benefit of photos as well. The difference between this package and the first product is that now the pre-ceremony period will be filmed as well and also the reception. Two professional broadcast quality cameras will be involved in this package too for the entire day; there is no time limit. A movie director will supervise the entire filming process and, just like in the previous case, you will have opening titles, graphics and animations in your video. In addition, you will get 2 professionally edited DVDs, not only one.
If you need more information regarding this company, check imfvisions.com or call 1 (808) 392-4012.
As long as you plan to organize your beach wedding in Hawaii, you have to take into account a wedding planner that will deal with all the aspects related to a wedding. Of course, you will do this, if you're not a local and know all the hotels and restaurants there. My recommendation is to address a wedding planner, whether you live in Hawaii or not, because they know better with what companies to work, what are the best videographers and photographers in Hawaii, where are the best venues and what are the cheapest restaurants, that provide great food and entertainment.
If we refer only to the wedding video, we have to say that in Hawaii, there is a company (CraneMedia Productions LLC), that activates and provides you with great video services: ceremony coverage, ScreenBooth, PhotoBooth and Digital Guestbook, same day edit services, reception coverage, slideshows, audio services, online hosting and expedited editing.
In terms of packages, this company has 6 packages available. The first one deals only with the bride and groom preparation and covers also the ceremony. You will have 2 cameras and you will receive 2 DVD copies. This is available for the price of $1550. The second package includes beside the bride and groom preparation and 2 camera coverage of the ceremony, 2 camera coverage of the reception. You will receive 2 edited DVD copies as well. The difference between this package and the previous one is that this is $2600.
The third package offered by CraneMedia is the one that includes besides the services already provided, a video slideshow, setup and presentation at reception, same day edits with the ceremony highlights and the possibility of using their projector and screen. Obviously, the price of this package is a little bit higher: $3650. For $4750, you can rent also the ScreenBooth, PhotoBooth/Digital Guestbook and receive 2 more copies of your wedding video on a DVD. In addition, you will have one more camera at the ceremony.
The fifth package is named the Fusion Package; you will have 2 cameras only for videography, that will capture the moments when the bride and groom are prepared for the wedding, you will see a slideshow with these events, you will benefit of 2 camera coverage of the wedding ceremony, of ceremony highlights shown at the reception, the possibility of using the company's projector and screen and at the end of the wedding, you will receive 2 DVDs with the slideshow and ceremony highlights. In terms of photography, you will get 8 hours coverage, 350 photographs, an online gallery and a DVD with high-resolution digital files. The price of this package is of $4500.
Before contracting a wedding videographer, it is important to get a glimpse of the company's work. With no reason whatsoever, I have selected the Video Keepsakes company, that offers videography services in Beverly Hills, Miami Beach and Beijing. I don't know what is the relation between Miami and Beijing, and to be honest, I'm not even that interested.
What does interest me is the wedding video samples provided on this site: vki-party.com. The first thing you see when you enter this site is that it provides services of this kind at high standards; after this, you can watch several wedding video samples in high definition. You must have a video player to be capable of seeing the videos presented here. For example, I have watched a short video sample, that I liked very much and that represents how your wedding video will be, definitely on a much smaller scale. If you like a wedding video on this site, you can share it with your friends on Facebook and see what is their opinion. After all, they will appear on screen as well, because you will invite them to your wedding, so you have to take into consideration their opinions.
Regarding the video that I have just watched on vki-party.com, I can say that it starts by presenting the wedding venue where the reception will take place. I see that the videographer focuses on plants, flowers and other details, which are really great for the eyes. Then, the bride is presented. If you want to film also the moment when the bride is dressed and when a friend or a professional makeup artist puts some makeup on her, this moment will be one of the first. After this, some shots are made with the bride’s shoes, dress and the rest of the people present at this moment in the bride's house.
When this moment is over, the videographer moves outside and films the house, focusing, just like in the case of the wedding venue, on the small details, that make the wedding video so colorful and vivid. As a parenthesis, I want to mention the soundtrack is very, very good. I don't know if in this case is selected by this company or by the happy couple that is represented in it, but is really good and expresses the exact operations or moments that the video itself expresses. A very good match between the images showed on the screen and the music heard.
After presenting the preparation of the bride, the one of the groom follows. What is great is that the videographer concentrates on filming the big smiles present on everyone's faces.
