We are not ashamed to admit that we cry buckets when we watch Lakeland wedding videography. Somehow, the combination of the bride walking down the aisle and “Beautiful in White” always brings us to tears. How do wedding films manage to evoke such strong emotions in us? What is it in a wedding video that gets us every single time?
Certainly, it’s not the bride and the groom, who, in most cases, we don’t even know (seeing as we watch wedding videos on YouTube only). Most probably, it’s because the wedding videographer did such a great job combining the sweet moments of the couple with the perfect background music.
The filmmaker is not the only one who chooses the music. While he can suggest a particular song to set the tone of the video, it is still up to the couple to select which song fits their personalities well.
You can choose to have a song with lyrics or an instrumental. No matter what you pick, the music will add another layer of emotion to an already emotionally-hyped event in your life.
List down All the Important Songs in Your Lives as a Couple
What are the songs that you remember your partner when you hear it from the radio? Do you have a theme song? Maybe there’s a song that both of you agree relates to where you are in your relationship. List down all these songs and listen to them once more. Is there a particular tune there that can set the tone of the whole ceremony?
Remember that if you choose a happy song, the guests will automatically feel that this is an occasion where they will laugh instead of shed happy tears; that the wedding is not the sappy kind they see on social media.
But if you choose a heartfelt song such as “A Thousand Years,” then your guests would know this event is something very emotional for everyone.
Watch a Ton of Videos
One of your duties as a bride or groom is to watch a ton of your videographer’s videos. This way, you’ll familiarize yourself with his style.
If something catches your eye, you can take note of that video and tell your videographer what you like about it. Your videographer will then have a sense of what you’re looking for in a video. He’ll be able to help you choose the proper music, too.
If you don’t have any particular music you want, just trust your Lakeland wedding videography team. If you’re paying him to do his job on the most important day of your life, you should be able to trust him to choose the right music for your video, too.
