Lights, Camera, Action! A Wedding Videography Timeline.

As cliché as it might sound, your wedding will be one of the most important events of your life. Friends and family gather to celebrate your love and union as you enter your new chapter as a couple. Of course, many memories will be created, but someone has to be there to eternalize them! What better way to have an heirloom of your special day than by opting for a cinematic portrayal? Just make sure to book a professional wedding videography package to record these magical moments.

Wedding videography is a part of the planning process for the big day as well. The organization and reservations can be very time-consuming. However,

in the end, when every detail is in its place, you will need a professional to capture your efforts. Once you figure out the flow of the events, consider making a wedding video timeline to ease the process.

Here is a sample timeline but you can adjust your day’s hours to fit your preferences:

12:00 p.m. Getting Ready

If you are looking for wedding videography planning in Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, or Tennessee, you should know that we send out two videographers! One goes with the bride and the other one with the groom. They will capture the bride getting ready with her bridesmaids, choosing her jewelry; and the groom putting on his tie.

13:30 p.m. Groom's Reading the Letter / Writing Vows

It is always an excellent idea for the couple to write each other a letter to read before the ceremony. Recording these moments will not leave anyone's eyes dry. Shoul

d the couple decide not to write letters, recording them writing down the vows is also incredibly touching.

14.00 p.m. Bride's Final Touch-Ups

The wedding videography team makes sure to record as the bride is done with the makeup or putting on the veil.

14:00 p.m. Groom and Groomsmen Time

The groom and his party enjoy being filmed at or by the venue before the party begins. These tend to be moving friendship moments.

14:20 p.m. Bride's Reading the Letter / Writing Vows

Once the bride has finished getting ready, she can read her letter or write the vows.

14:45 p.m. Bridal Venue Details

A part of wedding videography is capturing every detail that someone has put a lot of time and energy into. It is important to capture the decorations, flowers, as well as theme.

15:00 p.m. Bride and Bridesmaids Time

Much like the groom, the bride needs to share this day with her friends as well.

16:00 p.m. Bride and Groom Shots / First Look

Finally, the couple meets and shares the first look intimately. This moment in slow motion leaves nobody indifferent.

17:00 p.m. The Guests

Recording the guests as they arrive is another great way of keeping the memory of your friends and family being there for you on such a special occasion.

18:00 p.m. The Ceremony

What could be more romantic than the walk down the aisle, the couple saying their ''I do's'' and exchanging rings and vows?

Once the ceremony is over, you can make a quick outline of the rest of your wedding video timeline. For example:

18:30 p.m. Family Photos

19:00 p.m. Dinner and Drinks

20.30 p.m. First Dance

21.30 p.m. Giving Toasts

21.30 p.m. Cutting the Cake / Bouquet Tossing

23.30 p.m. The Exit

Final Tip:

Stick to your wedding video timeline to ensure a seamless flow of events. However, it is beneficial to be a bit flexible as well. If something unpredicted arises, you will be able to shift some events on your list, moving them to fit the course of happenings. Not only will this list keep you organized, but it will also lower the impact of any setbacks.
