Bride turned Wedding Videographer

I’ve been quite the little video editor this week, editing videos for two weddings Mr. Knight and I have been to in the past few months. When Mr. Knight and I first saw our highlights video it instantly took us back to that day, that special moment in our lives. We knew video was incredibly important to us and we were so happy the lovely Erika Rydell was able to be there to capture our day so beautifully.

Recently, Mr. Knight and I went to two weddings, one for my cousin up in Erie, PA (we drove, we are crazy) and one for his cousin in St. Augustine, FL. Both weddings were sans videographer. We wanted our cousin’s to have a fun little video from their weddings because a video shows emotion and the mood of a wedding so much better then any photo could ever show (we believe). Luckily, Mr. Knight and I are always equipped with a ridiculous amount of video/photo equipment everywhere we go (remember our honeymoon video?).

Here’s the two videos I’ve been having so much fun editing. I smiled the whole time I edited these videos. How could you not with such cute couples? Yeah, I may have cried to. I get way to wrapped up in the song/video combo, or I’m just an emotional wreck. Who knows.

My cousin’s Erie, Pa Wedding. We decided mid-reception to become their un-official videographer. So happy we did. :-)

When the Bride started crying during the ceremony I knew at that moment I HAD to be their un-official videographer (while Mr. Knight did his duties escorting the Mother of the Groom). They are so sweet, and I totally cried a fews times while making their video. I’m a sap.

How important was it to y’all to have video at your wedding? Are you finding difficulties fitting it into your budget?
