In San Francisco, it’s standard to hire a talented, professional videographer to capture your wedding and incorporate it into a captivating and gorgeous film. But, have you considered having a videographer present to film your rehearsal dinner as well? This is an add-on option that is quickly growing in popularity.
At Reb6studios, our wedding cinema collections include reception toasts edits, but we also offer more packages that can be tailored to your needs. Here are a few reasons you might want to consider adding a rehearsal dinner film to your package.
Because the rehearsal dinner is less structured and hectic than your wedding day, it’s a great opportunity to capture candid moments between loved ones. All of the important people in your lives will be there, including your wedding party and closest family. It’s the perfect chance for everyone to get to one another ahead of the big day, and you will really value getting to look back at some of those moments.
Oftentimes, the rehearsal dinner is when some of the best speeches come out. It’s a more casual event, and your guests probably will feel more comfortable opening up in front of a smaller group of people. Think funny memories, loving sentiments, and all sorts of future well-wishes. Having the ability to watch these back at a later time will be absolutely invaluable.
The rehearsal dinner is the calm before the storm. There are few opportunities to document this incredible moment, when everything is suspended in pre-marital bliss. Everything has already been planned, you’re surrounded by loved ones, and everyone is giddy with excitement for the upcoming nuptials.
Videographers Get a Lay of the Land
Rehearsal dinners are the perfect place for videographers to familiarize themselves with the venue and the guests. This special event also allows them to know who the VIP’s of the wedding day are. They can mingle with friends and family, so there will be no awkwardness during filming of the big day. All too often, we hear a father of the bride or mother of the groom say at the wedding reception, “Fortunately, I got all of my tears out at the rehearsal last night.” The rehearsal dinner can be full of memories, loud laughter, and lots of beautiful tears. These moments need to be captured by an experienced, award-winning San Francisco wedding videographer that has a passion for storytelling.
