Catie and Bill were pumped to have their wedding at the gorgeous Wequassett Resort on Cape Cod in May—everything was perfectly set in place—but they had yet to decide on whether or not to get a wedding videographer.
Like many grooms, Bill was beyond excited to marry the love of his life—but being in the spotlight wasn’t exactly something he was looking forward to.
Adding another set of cameras trained in on them as a couple just seemed impossibly overwhelming to him.
But Katie and Bill knew, as gorgeous and important as wedding photos are, they wanted another way to be able to remember their biggest day together. Something that would bring them back to the moment at any time and maybe even reveal parts of the day they weren’t able to see before.
A wedding film was inevitable.
They wanted to be able to experience the day without sacrificing personal space or being present with one another.
We’ve been to weddings where the videographers invaded the personal space of wedding guests and we viewed that as distasteful and distracting.Catie & Bill
A wedding film was was a last minute add to their wedding. We spoke to Catie’s mom. We spoke to Catie. And to Bill. We made sure to listen to every concern and promised to be respectful in every regard.
We walked through our entire process of filming the day and how we would handle each portion, which cinematographer would be with who, what would be filmed.
And we even came to the rehearsal to show them where we would be positioned during their ceremony.
Making them comfortable was as important to us as creating a gorgeous film that they would treasure forever.
The day finally came and it all went off without a hitch. The ceremony at Saint Christopher’s in Chatham on Main Street was straight out of a fairytale.
Their golden retriever puppy, Remy, was onsite for morale support, lots of furry hugs, and plenty of kisses.
A cake crafted to look like a Nantucket basket in honor of Catie’s grandmother was picture perfect (and one of the best cakes you’ll ever taste).
And Bill and Catie looked like royalty.
Best of all, no one ever knew we were there. Except for when we flew our drone over Pleasant Bay… the drone draws a crowd, always. And everyone always has funny waving at it and watching all that’s being filmed while it’s in the air.
It was a perfect night. A night to remember by all. And we couldn’t be happier or more honored that Catie and Bill trusted us to film their wedding, to be a respectful partner in their biggest day, and to craft a lifetime of memories for them.
We chose Harborview for their knowledge of Wequassett Resort and the Cape Cod area in general, as well as their extremely approachable demeanor and very kind personalities.
We 110% would have regretted not getting a wedding video because we can now look back on moments of our day during which we were not able to see or participate. The 15-minute compilation that they created brought tears to our eyes.Catie & Bill
