Wedding Wire – Focus On You Video

 

Just got a wonderful email this week from Sheila & Bob. These emails make our business so worth it and make me tear up a little because I’m so happy we could be there to help create such a special memory for them.

(We will be posting their wedding video soon)

 

 

“Bob & Krista,
Thank you a million times over for the beautiful work you did on our wedding video!…Our families loved it as well. I think my mom has watched it more than us! And my nephew (our ring-bearer) blushes every time he sees himself on screen…so cute!

I really can’t thank you enough. You totally “got us” – which was evident from the second we put the DVD in and bagpipes were playing “Auld lang syne” on the menu screen. Bob was pumped with the music selections, and he can be hard to please in that area. I was so impressed with how beautiful the video looked… all those small winter details you were able to capture, and the amazing editing. But mostly – all the things you caught that we didn’t see – the ring-bearer and flower girl playing together, our moms gushing after the ceremony, and our friend balancing a beer can on top of his head while dancing!

It truly is priceless! I was reluctant to spend money on a video, and after some prodding from people, decided to go for it. It was the BEST wedding investment we made. Now I can’t even imagine not having this to look at for years to come. The day can go by in such a haze, and there is so much you can miss – the video was a necessity for sure! We’re so happy we found the two of you to help document the memories from the best day of our lives!”

-Sheila & Bob

We have recently received a few wonderful emails/messages from our past 2010 clients telling us how much the enjoy watching their wedding videos a few years after their wedding and how it’s great to have all the memories captured in time.

We tell our clients you’ll love watching your video right after it’s finished, but it’s more important a few years later, and you really appreciate it and the memories it holds.

Thanks Jen & Drew and Anna & Justen for sending us those wonderful message, we really appreciate it!

 

“Thanks Bob and Krista for making our day special 3 years ago Aug 22 at Stan Hywet. Drew and I watched our video from our wedding that you created for us and we are so thankful for Focus on You Video…You were the tie that bound that day for the rest of our lives.. it was great watching it again this year and remembering how much talent you both have – to capture every moment so special to us.. thank you.. from the bottom of our hearts…love you guys!”
-Jen & Drew

 

“Krista & Bob,
I know this is really random but I wanted to send you an email and tell you how much my wife and I really loved the video you were able to create for us. For whatever reason you guys popped into my head today… The money we spent with you guys was easily the best money we spent on our wedding. You guys were able to catch parts of the day that we may have missed, and bring back to life all the great moments of the day. The work you guys do, and the talent you guys have is truly special. Again, thanks so much.

- Justen and Anna
P.S. We tell all our friends to use you guys!”

Stephani & Steve are such a fun, cool laid back couple. Their wedding day couldn’t of been on a more gorgeous fall day! We started the day at the Old Stone Church in Downtown Cleveland for their ceremony and then head out to the Metroparks in Lakewood for creative photos/video. The warm sunshine and beautiful fall leaves were a perfect backdrop, plus it’s great when you have a fun couple that is up for anything. Got some great shots with Ken & Julia then off to the reception at Tom’s Country Place. Everyone had a great time visiting, dancing and some rival Pittsburgh/Browns fans out on the dance floor waving the Terrible towel.

Best Wishes to Stephani and Steve! Thanks for asking us to be apart of your special day!

UPDATE: Congrats to Stephani and Steve since they are expecting their first baby Jan 18! Best wishes to the awesome new parents :-)

“Bob & Krista, We are very happy…The video captured everything we were hoping for, and we thought it was amazing! Our parents each got a copy this weekend, so we are anxious to hear what they say as well! “

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.”
