Don’t Miss a Moment: Rehearsal Dinner Coverage

Your wedding doesn’t have to be a one-day celebration. You’ve invited friends and family from near and far to gather in your honor, so why not extend the festivities? Aside from the wedding day itself, many couples hold a rehearsal dinner the day before the wedding or brunch the following day. These additional gatherings shouldn’t be forgotten in video coverage, as they too will hold special memories and meaningful moments you’ll want to remember and cherish for years to come! Many clients are taking our advice in adding rehearsal dinner coverage because of its added value to their Feature Film story. Our clients say the content is truly invaluable.

Rehearsal dinners often have a more intimate feel and allow us to capture a more casual side of the bride, groom and family members. After all, there are so many facets of each couple’s personality, much more than being a bride and groom on the wedding day itself. The extra coverage helps us capture the entirety of your wedding events and more about you as a couple and individuals.

Oftentimes guests and family who may not be speaking on the wedding day will have a chance to share stories or give a toast at the rehearsal dinner. While surrounded by your closest family and friends, these speeches tend to be more raw, personal and natural. Do your guests need some assistance in writing a stellar toast? Check out our past blog post for some helpful tips!

The content we gain while covering additional events adds dynamic elements and story threads that help build the story for your film. The more content, the more comprehensive we can make your final product. The time we spend with each couple is so valuable to us, and getting to know each client is key in creating personal and meaningful stories. Inviting us to attend your rehearsal allows our team to become closer with each couple and family. On the wedding day there is no better feeling than having a hug with you and your friends versus just another hired vendor starting their day. This additional time and coverage allows you to become comfortable with us around, giving you more touching and unscripted moments as a result.

See more from these wonderful couples! Hannah + Jeremy | Madeline + Colin
