Hawai’i is an amazing setting for your destination wedding!
Perfect palm trees, beautiful beaches, warm sunshine- It’s no wonder why Hawai’i is one of the top locations in the world for couples to profess their devotion to each other.
Being 2,390 miles from California and 3,850 miles from Japan, Hawai’i is quite remote. Being so remote is part of it’s charm but also contributes to the reasons why it could be a challenge to get all of your family and friends to join you for your wonderful tropical occasion.
The long flight times can prove to be a very daunting task for the elderly and loved ones with medical conditions. Not to mention the high expenses of air fare, and lodging. For some couples, this is not much of a concern, as long as the majority of their closes family and friends are able to make the trip.
But for many couples, they realise that the journey to an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean will not be feasible for most of their loved ones, so they go it alone or with a very small group. When these couples include videography to the list of vendors to service their intimate event, they now have a worthy and cost-effective option to the expense and logistics of a large group travel.
In order to avoid the aforementioned travel wrangling, we’ve had a few clients that planed their event to be in two parts. The Hawaiian destination wedding of their dreams, and an all out wedding reception, a *week or two later, in their home state. With this approach, the video becomes the centerpiece of the wedding reception. In front of all of their family and friends, the video of their intimate wedding ceremony in paradise is projected on a large screen. For us at Cinema Verite Wedding Movies, our style of not only capturing the tender moments of the Bride and Groom, but also paying attention to all of the atmospheric details, serves this approach well. We want the guest to feel as if they were part of the experience. Part of the magic.
*Typically our finished product is done 30 days after the wedding event, but we offer expedited post-production service for an additional fee.
