Wedding Film Packages

null
If we have learned anything filming weddings, it is that each wedding day is a unique story.
From touching moments with family, to the grooms emotion upon seeing his bride for the first time on their wedding day, we specialize in capturing the details that make this the happiest day of your life.
Blending cinematic and journalistic styles, your narrative will come to life and Grindstone will no longer be just your wedding videographer – we become your storyteller.
Like many creative companies, our wedding film packages are based on value and a combination of services. But rather than limiting our packages to a certain number of hours, we base our arrival time on time before the ceremony and stay through the end. So you’ll never have to worry about paying for extra hours if your reception runs a little late.

Just A Slice

Up to 3 hrs of Pre-Ceremony Coverage

We arrive up to 3 hours before your wedding ceremony to capture fun moments while you are getting ready – hair & makeup, mimosas and laughs with your girls, the exchange of gifts or letters, the dress, the groom hanging with his guys, and, my personal favorite, your first look. Your wedding day is so much more than the ceremony!

Ceremony Coverage

We capture the entire ceremony from start to finish with multiple full-HD cameras and professional audio equipment, including the wedding party processional, the groom’s reaction to seeing his bride, the vows, and the officiant announcing you has husband and wife. We incorporate these moments into your final film(s) to tell the story of your day.
If you plan to have something special happen during your ceremony such as readings, singing, etc., please let us know before the wedding so we can prepare to capture everything.
*We do not use wireless channels for our audio, so there is no interference with any of the venue’s audio systems. Our recorders fit comfortably in the groom & officiant’s pockets and require no action from you.

Reception Coverage

It’s not often that you get ALL of your friends and family in one place and we capture it all. Your grand entrance and first dances, cake cutting, bouquet and garter tosses, Aunt Linda and Uncle Bob getting down on the dance floor, and of course your final send off. Because our packages aren’t limited by a number of hours at the end of the night, we’ll be there through the exit and we’ll never ask you to pay for additional hours for reception coverage.
Planning to have toasts and speeches at your reception? Let us know in advance, so we can plan to capture them in full!

Two Cinematographers - Multiple Cameras

Having 2 cinematographers allows us to cover your wedding more completely and allows us the time to get more cinematic shots, multiple angles, and coverage of simultaneous events. For instance, if the bride and groom are getting ready in separate locations, we have the ability to capture details from both, rather than missing those moments.

Professional Audio Capture

Audio is an extremely important part of your wedding day!
We use multiple recorders to capture everything from the homily and vows, to special readings and musical performances, as well as your first announcement as a bride & groom.
*We do not use wireless channels for our audio, so there is no interference with any of the venue’s audio systems.

Wedding Highlight Film

Highlight Films are generally 4-8 minutes long and are a peek at the pivotal moments that made your day yours, making them perfect for sharing on social media and with friends and family.

Flash Drive with Wedding Films

Once completed, wedding films are loaded onto a personalized storage drive. Need more than one? Additional drives can be added for $35 each up to one month after your wedding day. This gives us time to get the drives in time for your guaranteed delivery.
If you need another drive after that, we can still get them! However, we’ll have to send a new quote based on the manufacturing cost and shipping.

Aerial Cinematography

Aerial footage is a great way to document your get ready location as well as your ceremony and reception locations.
Whether we can fly on your wedding day is based on the weather, location and several safety factors.
We’re sorry, but we do not fly during ceremonies.
We’re licensed by the FAA as an sUAS Remote Pilot (part 107).

Video Guestbook

“Congratulations from Aunt Sue and Uncle Bob!”
We take a few minutes at the beginning of the reception and ask your wedding guests if they’d like to give a special message for your wedding film.
If we wait until later, once the drinks start flowing, the messages get a little…lit 🙂
We compile these messages into its own film and include it on your storage drive.

Teaser Film

These are generally available within the week following your wedding.

Highlight to Story Film Upgrade

Upgrade any package that includes a Wedding Highlight Film to a Wedding Day Story Film.
Unsure of the differences?
Highlight Films are generally 4-8 minutes long and are a peek at the pivotal moments that made your day yours, making them perfect for sharing on social media and with friends and family.
Wedding Day Story Films are generally 8-15 minutes long, depending on what happens on your wedding day, and include much more footage from throughout the day.

Additional Cinematographer

Think we’ll need help at your wedding?
All of our packages include two cinematographers, but if there are multiple events occurring simultaneously, additional cinematographers are available to help us make sure we don’t miss a thing.
.

Additional Hours

If you’ve picked one of the packages above, we’re already staying with you through the reception and exit. However, our packages are structured so you can choose how early we arrive on the wedding day. If the package you picked does not have us arriving early enough to capture everything you want to remember, you can add additional hours before your package’s scheduled arrival.
Additional hours must be consecutive with the block of hours already included with the package.

Engagement Film

Perfect for rehearsal dinners, this short film highlights the story of your love. A few weeks before your ceremony, we schedule a time to meet with the couple to interview them about how it all began, to be edited in with the interviews. These films are amazingly sweet and often funny! There won’t be a dry eye in the house.

Highlight Film

Highlight Films are generally 4-8 minutes long and are a peek at the pivotal moments that made your day yours, making them perfect for sharing on social media and with friends and family.
So why would you need both?
Wedding Day Story Films include a lot of amazing moments throughout your day, but it for some, they’re a tad long. While we know your friends and family absolutely love and adore you, and totally want to see what happened on your wedding day, they may not have 12-15 minutes to commit to watching your Wedding Day Story Film. Highlight Films are perfect for sharing on social media and sending out to your friends and family.

Aerial Cinematography

Aerial footage is a great way to document your get ready location as well as your ceremony and reception locations.

Rehearsal Dinner

Rehearsal dinners are often when friends and family give those wonderful, heartfelt toasts and speeches. Don’t let them be forgotten!
Our package includes two hours of rehearsal dinner coverage with multiple cameras and professional audio capture. The video from your rehearsal dinner will be cut together and included on the flash drive with your wedding films.
Need a microphone and PA system? Let us know and we can make that happen too!

Reception Speeches Film

In most cases, toasts and speeches are given during the rehearsal dinner, but occasionally speeches are planned for your reception. Please let us know if that is the case. Even if you don’t plan to add this option to your package, we’d rather know about the speeches and be prepared to capture them when they happen, so that if you’d like to add them later, we’ll have the audio and video. You never know, someone may give the most amazing toast and you may want to add it to your highlight or story film!

*We must be notified of the speeches in advance, so we have adequate time to setup audio and video equipment.

Wedding Party Interviews

Everyone who adds these interviews absolutely LOVES them!
We take a few minutes to speak with everyone in your wedding party individually and ask them a few questions about the bride & groom. The results are often hilarious, but can also be quite moving.
We recommend having a quiet room available early in the day for these because after the ceremony, it’s nearly impossible to wrangle bridesmaids and groomsmen after they’ve had a few drinks, plus you can only imagine what kind of responses we get!

Additional Flash Drives

This allows us enough time to order the personalized drives from the manufacturer and have them here in time for delivery.
If you need more after this time, we can still add them, but we’ll have to send a new quote based on the manufacturing cost and shipping.
