Lance and I did not plan on hiring a videographer, and we didn’t even consider the idea until the third married person mentioned that her wedding regret was not having it recorded. Maybe we should consider it, we thought. People keep bringing it up.
Immediately after the wedding ceremony, we were thankful we hired a professional videographer. Before the receiving line even started, we were both talking about how happy we were someone filmed the experience. Are you married? Did it all blur together in a magical, surreal haze for you too? Glad it wasn’t just us.
We decided to work with Applause Productions – DJs and Videography for our wedding. (If we’re friends on Instagram, you’ve seen my amazing sneak peek videos.) Our package came with both the lengthy, complete footage (to show us and our families) and a shorter highlight film to share with friends. We are thrilled with the results! Check out the video below and peek inside our wedding.

Working with Applause Productions was an absolute DREAM, and if we had more video-worthy moments happening soon you can bet your butt we’d hire them again and again. Leading up to the wedding, the Applause Productions team and I chatted extensively via email so the videos would represent what mattered most to us about the wedding. The day of the event, the team arrived early with cheerful attitudes and they (along with the photographer, Chameleon Imagery) kept the morning moving on the right schedule by pacing important moments for optimal fun and footage. Our families and wedding party found the team just as courteous and helpful as we did, and we’re all blown away by the video. Applause Productions stayed with us for all the important moments, from putting on the dress to tossing the bouquet. And they didn’t break the budget! While many videographers bid upwards of $3,000, Applause Productions offers plans at a fraction of the cost. You can even hire a DJ and a video team for 50% less than many of the video bids I’ve seen. We’re ecstatic we can now literally play the day on repeat!
Thank you for the phenomenal job, Applause Productions! Be sure to follow the company on social media to peek inside more inspirational weddings.
