LOVE our Video!!
When planning a destination wedding, you often choose many things blindly – they are either part of a package from the resort, or you are unable to do a site visit, so choices are made based on internet research, email communication etc.
Cancun Wedding Video by Mike Cantarell & Associates happened to be part of our package at Secrets Maroma Beach in Riviera Maya, Mexico. We were happy to go by the resorts recommendation (and were impressed by CWV’s work on their website) but at the end of the day, still didn’t know what to expect.
The good news is, I can’t say enough about how delighted we are with our video! Not only did CWV meet our expectations, they exceeded them. We have 4 different sections of our wedding: A photo shoot on the beach set to music (they even chose the music themselves – and picked perfect songs, without any direction whatsoever from us!) the Ceremony, the Cocktail Hour and the Reception. The quality of the still images put to video are amazing and the quality of the videos from our reception, cocktail hour and ceremony are flawless. They were able to capture every perfect moment from our big day.
I must say too that CWV had their work cut out for them – it rained at least 5 times throughout the various events for the day (all were outside!) but this did not spoil CWV’s work (or our wedding! To all of the brides out there – just roll with the punches, shed no tears – the rain showers made our wedding soooo much fun!) The rain did throw a few things off timing wise, so we asked CWV to stay longer in order to capture the speeches on film. They were more than willing to do so! My only regret is not asking them to stay to the end – it would have been amazing to have had on video the chaos that occurred as we all jumped into the pool (yes – i jumped in the pool in my wedding dress! lets be honest – am i ever going to wear it again??!!)
Here we are almost a year later, and I contacted Mike to see if we could get a few extra copies of our wedding DVD – he was super fast in responding to my email and had no issues at all sending us what we needed. CWV’s dedication to our account (almost a year later) continued to portray what a fabulous company they are.
For those of you who are debating which videographer to use, look no further – stop driving yourself nuts with research – CWV is the way to go!
