Cupid’s Advice:

Your wedding day is special and is one of the most important days of your life.  It’s a day that couples want to cherish and what better way to do that than to have it recorded?  Here’s why:

1. Memories: Having your special day recorded means you’ll be able to relive the moment over and over again. If things start getting tough, remind yourself about how happy you were on your wedding day.

2. Friends and family: You may not hang out with your friends and family as much as you used to, and a wedding video will allow you to see your loved ones all together on your special day.

3. Pass it down: You can pass your wedding video on to your children so they can see the day you were married.
