Virtual Wedding Guests

Your bf from h.s.has her law boards. Your grandmother is not feeling well enough to travel.
One of your mom's bfs  can't leave her job 5000 miles away. But they all witnessed your wedding, watching and listening to a State Room wedding today - that we streamed, live with perfect sound, to everyone who couldn't make it.

I found myself smiling as guests lined up to our camera, before and after the ceremony, to say high and offer congratulations to grandma. Grandma responded to the good wishes via phone to one of the guests.

With three of us filming, checking the feed, checking the stream, we joined the team of multi-camera juggler, Marcella Hoeskra and photographer + assistant Jaqueline Lombardo.

In addition to including virtual guests, our format for streaming lets the family and couple share, post, and download the unedited stream file. You can even make and send dvds from the file.
For those couples looking for an easy (and inexpensive!) way to invite more guests and have a permanent video copy of their ceremony, this may be the best way to go!
