Video does a better job of capturing the passion, feelings and emotion of your celebration, and brides surveyed said their belief is that future children will appreciate video more than photographs. Today’s bride says it is crucial to have your wedding video delivered to you either on Blu Ray or on DVD. When asked: “If you had a choice between looking at your grandparents’ wedding photos or their wedding video, which would you choose?” 61% of these brides (30,000+) said they would rather see the video.
Finally, Brides always tell me after they watch the video that I send them, that they cannot believe how much they now see in the video that they did not see on the day of their celebration! Call me if you have questions. It’s no obligation and I am happy to tell you everything I know.
Inside tip for Video: If your celebration requires 3 locations to shoot video at, like maybe 1) at home, getting ready, 2) at the church, 3) at the reception venue, you might consider 2 shooters. One will get a full hanging dress, flowers/rings/shoes and more, as part of “getting ready”. Then, that shooter will either follow the bride to the church, or head straight for the reception venue. The other shooter heads to the Ceremony and is there plenty early, to get all the set up shots and be comfortably ready for the bride to arrive. Then one or both can get the pre-reception decorations such as all the place cards, cake, empty room etc… before they are corrupted by the arriving guest.
Our Opinion: Our Photo Booth is simply the best of all the booths we have tried and we have tried a lot. It comes with everything and the quality is the highest available.
Example: 9 people go in the booth – 9 people get the photo strip, that includes your photo or other image along with the 3 shots of them – with the highest resolution images currently available. The props are so many they are constantly falling off of the prop table ! We present you the filled out album and all your photos
Uplighting is a very popular trend. Curtis Knight Entertainment has 60 uplights and, put very simply “We can light anything!” Most people use 20 lights. We recommend 1 light for every 10 person capacity as a minimum.
Use our soft colors to augment and enhance the early moments of your reception. Then, the stronger colors for later when the action takes over your dance floor. Strobe effect, chase effect – you name it! We will notate your color choices and reproduce them flawlessly.
Let Rene Rancourt, the legendary voice of the Boston Bruins, sing our National Anthem at your celebration. When we have used Rene in the past it has been “out of control” with guests swarming him for autographs and photos, especially since the B’s won the cup in 2011)

Short, Medium or Long
We can make your ceremony as long or as short as you like. Average is about 17 – 18 minutes. If you add some extra components it could be 22 – 25 minutes. We frequently do 10 – 12 minute ceremonies when the couple tells us this is their desire.
Online Planning Forms
Use our online ceremony planning form to tell us your own unique style, and let us do the rest. Many couples are too busy and have no time to create their ceremony. The planning form is optional. Skip it if you are crazy busy.
We are happy to do it all
We are happy to do 100% of the creation and planning of your ceremony. Many of our couples have told us they LOVE this feature. Just tell us in one sentence, if you want, what type of ceremony you want. Example: “Make my ceremony short and exciting” or Make my ceremony personal and loving and don’t let it be over too fast” or “make my ceremony have everything in it and give me all the ceremonies and the readings – the works!” We take care of the rest and it turns out to be …Breathtaking. Tell us nothing and we will surprise you with a well-tailored ceremony that will WOW your friends and family!
