Surprise First Dance with a Little Choreography


Once plans began for Eddie & Abbey’s wedding, Abbey’s sister said, “you have to do a cool first dance, and I will choreograph it for you.” And did she ever!
Eddie & Abbey had a great time pulling off this fun surprise first dance for their guests. The guests loved it too.

Check back tomorrow for the one of the most unique & creative Matron of Honor’s toast we have experienced in 17 years of filming weddings.

Depart In Style on Your Wedding Day

Wondering on how to depart your wedding? We thought we would share a few of our favorite past wedding exits.

An idea we often toss out for Brides to consider is having a grand departure following your ceremony at the church. It can make for great photos & video on your wedding day with your picturesque church as a backdrop. It also allows everyone who attends to your wedding to participate in your departure as you run through the crowd.

Very often, your car can circle around the block as guests depart for the reception and you can make your way back to the church to finish out the photos.

A limousine, classic car… For all our Oklahoma City Brides check out King’s Limousine. If you are in for having a classic car, they have the beautiful vintage white Jaguar (one of our favorites). They also have some great Limousine options as well. We have rented the Mercedes Limo bus decked with the big flat screen TV, great for transporting your Bridal Party. We love the fact that you can always count on them to be there with professional drivers ready to take you safely to your destination.

Crooning at it’s finest | Wade Tower

We have the opportunity to hear lots of bands at weddings, but none have a sound quite like Wade Tower. If you are a lover of Michael Buble, Sinatra or Bing Crosby, then that is a hint of Wade Tower’s crooning style.

Be it cocktail hour, dinner music or filling the dance floor, Wade is a favorite. While he is based in Oklahoma, he travels nationally entertaining audiences of all ages. You can contact him at bookings@WadeTower.com to book him for your wedding reception. Take a peek at this debonair entertainer performing, “Luck Be a Lady” and he is sure to have you swooning.

High Definition for Wedding Videography

This year more than ever we have had the question arise, Do you shoot in HD?”
Which is a great question Bride & Grooms should be asking their potential wedding videographer.

Without being overly technical and trying our best to keep this practical & useful for those looking for wedding videography here is the gist. When we use the initials HD it will stand for High Definition.  High Definition Video currently offer two levels  1080 {1920×1080} and 720 {1280×720}.

At Von Wedding Films, we have been filming and editing all of our weddings in HD {High Definition} since 2007, giving our clients a much higher quality wedding video.

But just because a wedding videographer films in HD doesn’t mean they deliver in HD. Filming in HD is good, but that is just half of the equation. When you get your wedding filmed in HD but delivered on a DVD, the overall quality of the video has been degraded and is no longer HD. It is now considered SD meaning Standard Definition or 720 x 480 lines of resolution. In order to get the full benefit of the HD video, you need to get your wedding video delivered on a Blu Ray Disc or an HD computer file.

A Blu Ray Disc can only play on a Blu Ray player or a Playstation3.  An HD computer file can be played on an iPhone, iPad, AppleTV, computer or media player.

We highly encourage all our clients to consider at least one Blu Ray {HD delivery} for archival purposes and to protect their invest for years to come. In our lifetime, we have seen a wide range of video delivery options, and technology continues to improve. Why not get the best delivery option available to future proof your investment? We would much rather our clients be transferring their wedding video from a Blu Ray to the next kind of media many years from now from a Blu Ray over a DVD.

But what is the next wave of the future for storing your videos? Well it is your online cloud. Thus why we try our best to stay ahead of the curve and offer our clients the HD computer file of their wedding video to store in their online cloud. For some parents, that could cause you to go tilt a bit. But for this generation, they are already storing their music, pictures & videos there now. Why not archive your wedding video on your online cloud too.

No matter how you get your wedding video, the HD gives you a much high quality you can enjoy for years to come.  Does HD matter to you? We would love to hear your thoughts.  Capturing life, love & laughter in HD! ~ Mark + Trisha
