Should You Hire a Videographer for Your Wedding?
categories: videography, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Resources

You probably saw this coming but for the record, we have a firm answer to the question: should you hire a videographer for your wedding? Clearly the answer is YES!!! We went straight to the experts at Something New Media Weddings to get you the insight you need into this wedding planning decision.

In a recent blog post, Something New Media lists 5 reasons why you should hire a videographer. Here’s 3 of them:

Relive the Moments You Missed: As a bride or groom, it is impossible to be everywhere on your wedding day. There are moments that you’ll miss such as your fiancé getting ready before the ceremony, your guests arriving and sharing their excitement with each other or your grandfather wiping a tear from his face during the ceremony…

Hearing Your Vows: …While photos do a fantastic job of capturing the emotion of the day, your wedding film will allow you to hear the personal vows that you exchange with your fiancé, the tone in your voice and the laughter of the audience.

Slow Down Time: …your wedding film will be able to take you back in time and re-experience the butterflies, excitement, love and all around happiness of your wedding day.

We’re not exactly sure why hiring a videographer/cinematographer continues to be an optional wedding vendor in couples’ minds as they plan their weddings but we hope you hear our pleas and take them to heart…you MUST consider a videographer/cinematographer an essential wedding vendor!

Desert Botanical Garden Engagement Shoot | Sara & Bobby
categories: Engagement, photography, Wedding Inspiration

Did you know that one of our very favorite wedding venues, Desert Botanical Garden (DBG), is also one of our very favorite engagement session locations? See, we kind of adore our desert plants and terrain and DBG is THE place to get our cactus/mountain/flower fix. Apparently cutie pie couple Sara and Bobby like it too because they chose to have their engagement photos taken there! Explore this Desert Botanical Garden engagement shoot with us…

So there’s a few reasons we were drawn to Sara and Bobby’s Desert Botanical Garden engagement shoot- of course the location is one reason- but do you SEE them? They are seriously the cutest, sweetest, gushiest couple! And then to top it off, their outfits are perfection! We love how the blues and reds pop against the neutral desert color palette. But we know there’s more to Sara and Bobby than their adorableness so we asked them a few questions:

How did you meet? We lived near each other and went to the same high school but never really knew each other. Back in February 2014 my friend Travis invited me, and his brother Geno invited Bobby, to go on a snowboarding trip in Telluride, CO and that’s where we got to know each other.

How did Bobby propose? In December 2016 we went on another snowboarding trip in Telluride with Bobby’s family and on our way down a run Bobby pointed out a spot off in the distance and said that’s where we were going to meet up with our group. Being the slowest one on the mountain I was the last one to get there, everyone was sitting so I sat too to catch my breath. Bobby scooted over to me and said, “I got something for you”, pulled out the ring, and asked, “Will you marry me?” It took me a minute to say, “Yes!” because I instantly started crying (happy tears!). Everyone else took pictures of the whole thing and his youngest sister Bailey yelled, “Yay! I get another sister!” He kept the ring for the rest of the day so I wouldn’t lose it in the snow.

The photo of Bobby tucking Sara’s hair behind her ear is one of our very favorites by Elite Circle photographer Fully Alive Photography- it’s a caring and natural gesture that adds a touch of authenticity which we thoroughly enjoy in engagement sessions!

Tell us about the wedding! Since we met in Telluride and got engaged there, we thought it would only make sense to have the wedding there too! Our date is September 21st, 2017 at San Sophia Overlook. We are most looking forward to spending such a special occasion of our lives with our closest friends and family with the incredible view and scenery that San Sophia has to offer.

What’s your favorite thing about each other?

Sara: I love that I know he will always be there for me. I sometimes let stress and anxiety get the better of me and he knows exactly what to say to make me feel like everything is going to work out and be okay. I’m always learning from him and he makes me laugh every day. I know I can count on him no matter what.

Bobby: My favorite thing about Sara is that she understands me completely. She is always there to support me with anything that comes up in our lives. I know that no matter what she will always be there for me. I find myself excited every day when I think about how soon she will be my wife.

How did you choose Tracy/Fully Alive Photography and DBG for your engagement photos? Bobby’s sister Lindsey found Fully Alive Photography at the Phoenix Bridal Expo. With work, school, MRI clinicals and planning the wedding I was feeling a little overwhelmed so for my birthday, Bobby offered to handle setting up engagement photos for me. Tracy teaches photography classes at the Botanical Gardens so she suggested doing our shoot there and that sounded like a perfect idea! The scenery was beautiful and the pictures turned out great. She was easy going and made us feel very comfortable during the whole thing too.

We feel like Sara and Bobby just know exactly what to do in front of the camera so if you’re ever not sure how to act during your engagement session, feel free to consult these photos!

What’s your ideal date night? Our ideal date night is just to spend time together. But our go-to date night is usually an Asian-fusion restaurant called Tottie’s. He took me there for our first date and we’ve spent a few Valentine’s day dinners there too. Plus he can get his sesame chicken and I can get my sushi fix!

We enjoyed getting to know you, Sara and Bobby (and adore your e-session style). Thank you for sharing your Desert Botanical Garden engagement shoot with us and congratulations on your upcoming wedding in Colorado!

Kristina and Chad’s Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View
categories: fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

elegant outdoor wedding with a view _Phoenix bride and groom_Sanctuary on Camelback_Jeff and Amber Photography

With their work schedules being busy at almost exactly opposite times of the year (Kristina is a teacher and Chad is a MLB pitcher), this lovely couple hired wedding planner Cara Morrison of A Day to Cherish Weddings to plan their elegant outdoor wedding with a view. The view was courtesy of the extraordinary Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa- Kristina and Chad knew as soon as they saw the gorgeous ceremony space, hip cocktail hour patio, and intimate ballroom that this was the place to exchange vows.

The couple used their vision of a wedding with rustic elegance to guide their wedding design choices; blush and ivory floral pieces added an element of romance while wooden accent pieces provided an outdoorsy feel.

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: For the outdoor ceremony, Kristina and Chad had their florist contruct a simple wooden arch and decorate it with flowing swags of white and blush flowers paired with greenery. Wooden stumps flanked either side of the arch and also served as bases for rustic candle lanterns that lined the rose petals dusted aisle.

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: Chad and I spent considerable time writing our vows to each other. It was worth every second and something I will always remember!

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: Kristina and Chad took full advantage of Sanctuary’s breathtaking desert landscape!

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: The reception was in the ballroom which boasts floor to ceiling windows- the effect is a stunning view of the mountains, Paradise Valley, and the city lights as the sun sets.

Our florist matched the blush rose tones of the linens and bridesmaid’s dresses with vases of staggered sizes, each with their own flower variety including ivory hydrangea, blush quicksand roses, Sahara roses and ivory majolica sweetheart roses. Gold pillar candleholders and votives accented the floral arrangements. The candles tied in perfectly with the gold-rimmed chargers and printed accents of the menus and favors on each plate.

Guests enjoyed a meal of Achiote Marinated Sea Bass , Grilled Corn and Chorizo Risotto, with Smoked Paprika and Lobster Butter Or Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin, Pancetta and Exotic Mushroom, Truffled Potato Cake with Cabernet Reduction Sauce- yum!

The sweetheart table was a pretty little setting for the couple to dine together for the first time as husband and wife and have the best view of their friends and family throughout the evening; the wooden decor elements were expertly incorporated into the otherwise elegantly decorated dining room.

Kristina recalls: Chad grew up in Texas and I am from Michigan. I had never heard of the southern tradition of a “groom’s cake” until Chad’s mother clued me into it. In the south, the groom gets his own wedding cake! For Chad I chose a chocolate Texas Tech cake decorated with strawberries.
