  • 5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Wedding Cinematographer for your Wedding

    Don’t mistake a Cinematographer for a Videographer, both are completely different from each other. A videographer will make sure that he records most of the wedding and wouldn’t have any story telling added to his video which makes it a little bland and boring whereas a cinematographer will capture the important moments and highlights of your wedding and add it all together in a form of a story. So basically, if you want a short film of your wedding experience, then you should go for a cinematographer.

    Why should you get a Cinematographer for your wedding? Well, here are just a few reasons why you should get one for your wedding.

    You won’t get time on your wedding day

    This is a no-brainer really, we all know how hectic the wedding schedule can be with numerous tasks and rituals and sometimes you don’t get a moment to observe how it is going around you. Being a bride or a groom can be more stressing as you have to make sure that you are up to the mark and aren’t late for your own wedding. With all this ruckus, who gets time to look around and enjoy their own wedding?

    A Cinematographer will help with just that, they will record the highlights and the major moments of your wedding and then string it together to give you a short, meaningful film of your wedding which you can then later watch and marvel at.

    Tell your wedding story

    If you are one of those Bollywood freaks, then getting a Cinematographer is a must for your wedding. You can create a beautiful story out of your wedding and capture your wedding beautifully ignoring all the boring details. You can capture your love for each other and all the funny antics which happen during the wedding and make it your own personal movie.

    Imagine watching your wedding story years later and reigniting your love every time you watch it? A beautiful story about two people in love, what more could you possibly ask for?

    Share it with people who couldn’t be present

    Another great reason why a Cinematographer would be good for your wedding is that once they have recorded and stringed together the recordings into a short movie, you can share this movie with your near and dear ones who somehow couldn’t make it to your wedding. So to make sure that your loved ones don’t miss out on your wedding experience and only witness the highlights of the wedding, get a cinematographer.

    If you are thinking that a videographer could do the same and then you could share that recording with your friend, well I would just say that your friends would watch 2 minutes of that long, boring session and then close it. A Cinematographer will keep the attention of your friends for the whole duration of the movie and would leave them too spell bounded by the end of it.

    Photography cannot replace cinematography

    You might argue that if you are investing in a Good Photographer, then why do you need a Cinematographer too? You and your family can just take a look at the wedding pictures and enjoy. But what you are forgetting that even though a photograph will capture a moment, it won’t tell why you were laughing or blushing at that particular moment. On the other hand, a Cinematographer will capture the whole moment and show it in your wedding movie allowing you to laugh at that anecdote or blush at that teasing again. If you’re planning for a Phuket or Krabi Destination wedding then this just became 10x more important.

    Really, I don’t think this should be even a discussion. A Cinematographer and a Photographer have completely different jobs and both are important to capture a wedding perfectly.

    Highlights of your wedding

    The best part about a Cinematographer is that he won’t record the dull moments or the monotonous moments of your wedding, he would only focus on the important aspects of the wedding and ignore all the mundanities. He would follow the groom and the bride around and record any funny or loving gesture and would turn your ordinary wedding into a fairytale story.

    Don’t all of us want that for us? A fairytale come to life? And a Cinematographer will help you in achieving just that.

  • 2016 WEDDING TRENDS: TRUE ROMANCE

    It’s beginning to look like 2015 will be a year of romantic nostalgia! Trends from bygone eras are making a comeback, but with more and more couples adding a special touch to ensure a completely unique day.

    A few months ago we reported on what’s going to be popular for bridal gowns, and it looks like the light-as-air look will carry on into the next year, but with a few twists. Capelets, which are a great alternative for brides who want to cover up minus the sleeves, are making a huge bang in the bridal world.

    Color is also going to be huge in 2015. While we became familiar with the popular pastel pink rocked by many brides including Kaley Cuoco, Jessica Biel, and Reese Witherspoon, designers are going out of the box with a variety of pastel, and even metallic, shades. With Monique Lhuillier debuting a pistachio gown and Kelly Faetanini unveiling a gorgeous silvery-lavender creation in their Spring 2015 lines, we’ll be sure to see many brides wearing pops of color on their big day in the future!

    When it comes to flowers in 2015, bigger is definitely better. Full, luscious blooms like hydrangeas, peonies, and English roses are taking center stage in floral arrangements that prove to be versatile for many wedding themes while definitely keeping up a romantic air.

    Another returning trend is that of the edible favor! While we still think that trinkets like bookmarks and ornaments are adorable, more and more brides are sending guests home with treats they can’t wait to dig into! On top of their devour-ready status, there really is a treat for each season! Something sweet like honey goes perfectly with a spring wedding while hot cocoa warms up a winter wedding.

  • REMEMBERING OSCAR DE LA RENTA

    Oscar de la Renta has passed away at 82 after fighting an eight-year-long battle with cancer. The fashion legend dressed many famous figures, from Sarah Jessica Parker, Zooey Deschanel, and Amy Adams to a long line of First Ladies. He also designed Amal Clooney’s wedding dress for her Venetian nuptials to George Clooney last month. He and his designs were even a favorite of Sarah Jessica Parker’s alter ego Carrie Bradshaw.

    The Dominian-American designer, a two-time winner of the American Fashion Critics’ Award as well as the winner of the CFDA’s Founders Award, served as president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America from 1973 to 1976 and again from 1986 to 1988.

    De la Renta’s uniquely feminine silhouettes and dramatic glamor have changed the fashion world forever. He will be missed greatly.

  • TRENDS FROM THE RUNWAY: BRIDAL FASHION WEEK 2016

    Many a unique figure was cut during the Fall 2015 New York Bridal Fashion Week, from the classic princess ballgown to the figure-hugging mermaid and everywhere in between.

    A still-popular trend in the bridal world is vintage, especially when it comes to gowns. The lavish lace overlays and intricate beading echo not only the ever-popular Victorian era, but the Art Deco age and the Swinging Forties. In Galia Lahav’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection Tales of The Jazz Age, unusual fabrics such as honeycomb-like netting pair up with figure-hugging trumpet, sheath, and mermaid-style gowns that make for the perfect attention-grabbing look. Plunging backs and drama-filled trains frequent the collection, which is just right for the bride that wants to make a statement.

    For the more traditional vintage brides, there are collections like Romona Keveza’s Legends line which emulates famous brides from decades past like Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy. A key detail in not only this line’s dresses, but many others this season, is the illusion neckline. Often paired with a lacy detail and sometimes even extended into sleeves, the look gives a certain elegance to the gown. With a collection full of boat necklines, ballet-length hems, and full tulle skirts, Keveza’s Legends collection has a timeless feel that is certain to evoke an classically glamorous figure.

    Many brides opt for a more modern, unique look on their wedding day. With looks like those featured in Carol Hannah’s collection, anything is possible. Hannah’s collection pushes the envelope by including lesser-seen patterns and fabrics, like jersey knit fabric and chevron print, as well as by carrying through this year’s bridal trend of color with pops of gold and mauve.

    For the more extravagantly feminine bride, Marchesa’s collection is right up your alley. With a certain ethereal flowiness to even the shorter gowns in the line combined with the lace appliques and luxurious tulle and chiffon detailing, every gown is sure to make any bride feel like a fairy princess.

    With this season’s crop of bridal fashions, there’s a gown for every bride, whether they’re going for a timeless Old Hollywood look, an edgy and eye-catching style, or a flowing fairy-like fashion.

  • Memorable Weddings

    2014 was a massive year when it came to weddings. We saw daring new trends in gowns and decorations alike, as well as some pretty heartwarming and touching stories.This past year also proved to be huge in the world of celebrity weddings as well, from Hollywood’s #1 Bachelor finally saying “I Do” to two Dug gar girls saying their vows mere months apart. Here, we’re listing the year’s most talked about and most memorable weddings!

    Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson


    The couple first announced their engagement back in 2010, but their plans were put on hold after Simpson became pregnant with daughter Maxwell and, later on, son Ace Knute. During the long engagement, the couple entertained a multitude of wedding ideas, even a destination wedding in Capri. In the end, the pair went the more traditional route and stayed close to home at the extravagant San Ysidro Ranch with their Fourth of July wedding weekend. The bride stunned in a glittery custom Carolina Herrera creation.

    Lauren Conrad & William Tell

    Fashion mogul and former Laguna Beach and The Hills star Lauren Conrad wed lawyer and musician William Tell in a very Pinterest-worthy ceremony this September. Conrad designed her bridesmaids’ gowns, with all of them wearing something from her collection from Paper Crown. As for her own dress, she collaborated with Badgley Mischka to create a stunning and one-of-a-kind gown adorned with Chantilly and Alencon lace.

    Amal Alamuddin & George Clooney

    The world was shocked when actor/director/notable bachelor George Clooney announced his engagement to London-based human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in April. But after a whirlwind romance the pair wed in a lavish ceremony in Venice. The star-studded guest list included Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Anna Wintour, and even Bill Murray. Alamuddin wowed in an off-the-shoulder, lace bedecked Oscar de la Renta gown.

    Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard

    After a much-publicized courtship on the TLC show 19 Kids and Counting, eldest Duggar daughter Jill walked down the aisle on June 21 in her hometown of Springdale, Arkansas. Over 1,000 guests joined the family, with the ceremony ending in Jill and Derick’s first kiss. The bride stayed traditionally modest while still looking beautiful in a lacy short-sleeved gown. Younger sister Jessa followed suit on November 1, marrying Ben Seewald in an equally sweet ceremony.

  • Would You Share Your Wedding Day With Your Siblings?

    Would you ever share your wedding day with your siblings? Well, four siblings in

    Utah did just that and it seems like they are happy with their decision.

    According to Today.com, three sisters and one brother between the ages of 19 and 23, all married on the same day. While they all married at the same ceremony, the services were different for each couple. After the ceremony, the couples shared one big wedding reception!

    It isn’t uncommon for siblings to sometimes take part in a double wedding, but a quadruple wedding isn’t nearly as common. Of course, it goes to say that planning was probably a little intense, especially considering there were four women (three of them sisters) planning for their wedding day. According to the report, the couples were happy with the way things turned out and there were no instances of any “bridezillas.”

    Is a joint wedding with your siblings something you should consider, though?

    It can definitely be a fun event, but one that you should think long and hard about before jumping into. Your wedding day only comes one time and it is something that you will want to remember for the rest of your life. If you and your sibling (or siblings!) are planning on getting married around the same time, then this could be a good idea, especially if you have a lot of family coming in from far away. It can be a great way to ensure that your extended family gets to be there for all of the nuptials and can be easier on the traveling guests – they won’t have to decide if they can make it to just one or all the weddings.

    At the end of the day, this seems like something that could work, but it seems unlikely that there will be an influx of quadruple sibling weddings anytime soon.
