Capitol Video: Sophia & Nuvon’s Maryland Wedding Video

Romancers! I am in the beautiful land of New Jersey today and through the weekend! So not a lot of social media from me, but I did want to leave you with something for your Friday. Today we have a wedding video from Jon Key Photography. Submitted by the bride, Sophia, today’s post also features some more insight into why Sophia & her husband Nuvon chose to have this kind of wedding video to capture their day. Now I know we’ve covered the “you should hire a videographer” topic ad nauseum. But, that won’t stop me from continuing to share real couples’ inputs and perspectives on this aspect of the wedding planning, and the vendors they chose. It’s all good, useful (and educational) information for when the time comes for YOU to decide whether or not you will hire a videographer.

First, some input from bride, Sophia:

One of the best investments in our wedding wasn’t the beautiful venue, or my dream dress, or even the mouth watering food. It was our wedding video. Hearing and watching our relationship story come to life was truly priceless. During the wedding planning process all of my past bride friends would rave about their florist or caterer, but nobody ever had recommendations for a videographer. Why? Because a videographer is probably one of the most underused and underrated vendors. Even when I mentioned to my husband and mom that I wanted a videographer they laughed and told me I should spend the money elsewhere. Well, they couldn’t have changed their minds more drastically after they saw the “Love Story” and “Wedding Highlight” films that Jon Key created for us.

The breathtaking and vivid images were beautifully edited and every time I watch the video I feel like I’m reliving the most amazing day of my life all over again.  The video captured our true sentiments during the speeches, our priceless reaction during the first look, as well as the fun and excitement on the dance floor. Many years from now when we watch the video with our own children we’ll be able to listen to the heart-warming speeches, laugh while watching my 85 year old grandmother break it down on the dance floor, and smile at the memories created on the day we became husband & wife. Bringing those wedding memories to life through videography is invaluable and irreplaceable. Hiring a wedding videographer was no doubt worth every single penny.

And now the beautiful video!

Happy Friday Romancers! A special thanks to Sophia, Nuvon, and Jon Key Photography for sharing this fun Maryland wedding video.

Have a great weekend everyone!

The story of Brian and Kim started in 2007 when they met in high school. Brian had just moved to the area and couldn’t help but notice Kim in his neighborhood. After a few weeks of hanging out together, they began dating. Five exciting years passed of growing together and really getting to know one another when Brian proposed to Kim. The next year, Brian graduated from college and was commissioned into the Air Force. Soon after these big accomplishments in his life, he would marry his best friend of six years.

This is their story.

Capitol Video: Keri Kae & Andy’s Rooftop Party Save the Date Video

A couple months ago we hit 500 Fans on Facebook and gave away a “Save the Date” wedding video as a prize, courtesy of our AWESOME friends at Friends with Cameras.

The winners were Keri Kae & Andy, lovers of travel and music, and self proclaimed “geeks” aka my kind of people :) Jason, the leader of Friends with Cameras chatted with the couple and learned that one of their most favorite things was spending time with friends on the roof of their building. So they decided to feature a rooftop party for their save the date video!

Friends with Cameras puts it:

We had fun, and the video I think it’s fun, and shows their personalities.

So check it out for yourself!
