This has been a wonderful couple to have gotten to know and it was a pleasure to film their special day. One fun tidbit is that Lindon met with many of us vendors before he even proposed to Jess, and needless to say, I was definitely impressed with that initiative!
After the successful proposal, Lindon (and this time accompanied by Jess) and I met again to go over the wedding timeline, and the hours really flew by during the rendezvous because it felt as though we were chatting as old friends. During the meeting I also got to view some cool home videos that Lindon edited himself that were filmed in Las Vegas as well as his home country of Grenada. When we went over the wedding timeline, I was excited to learn about the carnival theme of their reception and that they were building many of the games/activities that would be featured at the cocktail hour.
On the day of the wedding Jess and her bridesmaids were a pleasure to be around and it was a blast to witness the fun-loving camaraderie that Lindon and his groomsman had throughout the entire day. Also, as expected, the cocktail hour on the veranda of the NYS Museum was super-special and fun to get footage of.
I truly wish this couple a wonderful life together filled with many more memorable days ahead!
To help prospective couples get a better understanding of what one of the wedding films consists of, I wanted to make a post that includes all of the components of one of my typical wedding packages. These videos are from Melinda’s and Mike’s wedding at the NY State Museum from earlier this year.
It includes highlight videos of the getting ready, photo shoot, cocktail hour, as well as a montage from the entire day. In addition, it has the entire ceremony, all formalities of the reception, as well as a good amount of the action from the dance floor. You’ll probably notice that the highlight videos are set to music and have an artistic touch to them, while the ceremony and reception videos document the moments as they occurred in real-time. The ceremony and reception portions of the video typically total 2+ hours in length, so in this post I just included several-minute snippets from those parts, but they should give you a good feel for how the real-time edits are styled. Hope you enjoy!

It was a pleasure to join Melinda and Mike a few weeks ago for their wedding at the NYS Museum. It was the first wedding I had filmed at the museum, and I was really impressed with its view of Albany and how the fourth floor of it was transformed into a really gorgeous reception hall. Here’s a short sneak peak from the day. This wedding had a great blend of emotionally touching moments as well as funny ones, and I really look forward to creating the longer format versions of Melinda’s and Mike’s video.
