Video streaming allows you to share the intimate and memorable moment of saying “I do” with friends and family who cannot be there in person. Having your wedding captured not only lets you share your day but it’s an easy way for you to relive your day again and again. While the big day goes by fast, this is an easy way to capture things you may have missed, like the atmosphere filled with love for you and the beauty of the venue.
