Laura & Brad’s Wedding

Laura and Brad are one of the sweetest couples, so kind, and patient. Laura is so great with details that she even thought to have her and Brad memorize their vows. She posted them on the bathroom mirror and each morning they would practice memorizing them, it was really nice to see that. They had a beautiful ceremony, at St. Paul in Akron. I love the architecture of the building, so regal and timeless.They carried through the classic theme of their wedding day with the black, vintage car that took them to the reception.

After their ceremony we headed to a few garden spots around the church which worked great to shoot some creative photos/video. The whole bridal party were such troopers since we were dealing with some extreme heat that day. Soon, a big rain storm blew in and ended our photo session kinda early so everyone headed to the reception, Doubletree in Akron for cocktails, visiting and air conditioning :-) All the guests had a fun evening with a great dinner, dancing and lots of smiles!

Thanks again for letting us be apart of your wedding day Laura and Brad! :-)

“Dear Krista and Bob, Thank you so much! We watched the videos last night and both had tears in our eyes, you did a wonderful job putting together the memories of our wedding day. We both agree that having you as our videographer was one of the best parts of our wedding- we will treasure reliving our wedding day every time we watch the video.”

Melissa and Mike are super nice couple and really care for each other! They asked us to be there to document their wedding day starting with some of the girls getting ready. I always love shooting all the getting ready details that make each day special and important that that couple. Mementos and heirlooms and the stories behind them. Melissa and Mike were wed at St. Michael’s in Independence by Bishop Gries. At the end of the ceremony he presented them with a unique, personalized plaque from the pope, that was very cool!

It was about 99 degrees that day so we opted for an indoor location for creative photos/video with Ballard Brothers Photography at Severance Hall, and we got some great video there! Now, it was time for the fun at Landerhaven for personalized cocktails, visiting, and LOTS of dancing the night way!

We send our best to Melissa and Mike, hope you guys are well and thanks for asking us to be there to document your wedding day. :-)

“Bob & Krista, We were so excited when we received our package in the mail!!! We want to thank for all of your hard work and dedication to making our wedding video so special and memorable. We truly loved it and can’t wait to share it with family and friends! You both were a pleasure to work with. Your approach to videography and filming our wedding was professional and non obtrusive (we almost forgot the cameras were there). We definitely will recommend you to any couples looking for a videographer.”

We had a wonderful time spending the day with Ashley & Gino.They are so stinky cute and fun! The day began at St. Anthony’s in Akron which is gorgeous, old church with lots of character and wonderful Father Jim had me in tears during his heartfelt homely. Ashely’s family is Irish and Brian McElhiney’s bagpipes were a wonderful addition to the ceremony. After the ceremony we headed over to Hail Farm for some creative photos with Catherine McKinley who is always a pleasure to work with! Reception was held at Guy’s Party Center which did a great job on all the decor and food. All the guests had a blast and danced late into the night :-)

Thanks again for asking us to be apart of your special day and capturing those memories.

Featuring another vendor interview we shot and produced for Heidi of Heidzillas with the lovely ladies of Something White. In this short video they give some info about buying a wedding dress and things to remember as you shop, great info!

Thanks Heidi, Karen and Rebecca. It was great working with you.

Bob & Krista

Our awesome and talented friend Heidi from Heidzillas has started a new feature on her blog called ZillaChats. She’ll be interviewing wedding industry professionals about the services that couples might need to make their wedding day experience even better.  We’re thrilled to be helping her with this new venture by shooting and editing the pieces. They’re all shot on our amazing Canon HD-DSLR cameras and really showcase the amazing video that we can capture as well as highlight the people in front of the lens. Be sure to check out her first video, featuring Jim Lottig of Event Source! (hint: I think there may be more to come so stay tuned ;-)

We call our referral program “Thank You Hug$”. When our clients refers us to a new client who books their wedding/event, both will get  ‘Thank You hug$’ from Bob and Krista. (They’re not real hugs, but if want one of those too, you got it!)
Our referring client will receive a $50 gift card, and our new referral gets a $50 discount off their wedding/special event package when they book with us. How does that sound?
So to any of our clients, make sure your referrals mention your name. Your name = Thank You Hug$! If you think about it… a few referral gift cards and you can have a great shopping spree! (no limits)

Your Thank You Hug$ are waiting!
