Favorite 5 Unique First Dance Songs

Every event has a focal point – whether it be the flowers, the wedding dress, the food, or the band. This is a result of each wedding couple being unique, and bringing their own particular wedding ‘flavor’ to the day – and we think this is fantastic! Some of the greatest weddings we’ve been lucky to be a part of were focused on the music – from the DJ to the bridal march, every song curated to perfection. Some couples enjoy oldies; others enjoy jazz or ’80′s Pop – and for a modern event, the choices really are endless! You can have bridesmaids walk down the aisle to Coldplay, or dance with your parent to a lullaby – anything goes, as long as it’s characteristically ‘you’. We’ve rounded up our Fave 5 wedding First Dance songs, each with a unique character and personality – just like the unique brides and grooms we work with. Click through the image to listen to the song, and tell us which is your favorite in the comments!

If you’ve got plenty of out-of-towners coming for your wedding weekend, a fun and local-inspired welcome bag can do wonders – especially when you’re running around getting ready and don’t have the time to welcome everyone yourself!

  1. Packaging is everything. Get creative, especially if you’re having a destination wedding!

Happy weekend to you all!  Vegas has been on my mind recently with my trip coming up and an exceptionally funny episode of Modern Family that I just watched.  And recently I came across a super interesting and awesome location for a wedding, a ferris wheel! Only in a place like Las Vegas could you get married in a huge ferris wheel that rises to 550 ft. off the ground.  The aptly named, High Roller is like the London Eye with little pods that have 360 degree views and can hold up to 40 people.  It’s totally not for everyone, but still pretty cool.  Imagine getting married in a pod with your closest friends and family while you view the strip.  I think it’s pretty awesome for any serious Vegas lovers.  You’ll be a pair of high rollers, baby!

Things to consider when hiring a team to film your wedding

Some of the first things newly engaged brides do is go dress shopping, reserve a venue, and hire a team to film their wedding. Chances are, this is the first time any of them have hired a film crew. It can be an intimidating and overwhelming experience, filled with explanations of packages, prices, contracts and portfolios.  In an effort to give you a few pieces of advice, we have put together a short list of things to consider when selecting your wedding film team.

Don’t allow price to be the only determinant.

When shopping for a wedding film team price is something you should never skimp on. Obviously work within your budget but don’t be persuaded by deals that seem too good to be true. Sometimes the reason a film crew is priced at $500 is because they’re only worth that much. There’s a good chance that you might have some guy show up at your wedding with a camera and has no idea what he’s doing. If you spend time and energy planning your wedding, you’re going to want a film that reflects who you are and the work you’ve put into every tiny detail for your big day!

Hire someone who you are compatible with.

It seems like that’s something that really shouldn’t matter. It’s their talent that’s most important, right? Well, partially, yes. But if you’re laid back would you want someone who’s going to force you out of your comfort zone and make you feel awkward all day? You have to find someone you get along with and feel truly comfortable with.

Hire someone who LOVESwhat they do.

You have to hire someone who LOVES what they do and wants YOU to love what THEY do. You want someone who’s not burnt out on doing weddings. You want someone who is doing this because it’s their passion and they aren’t just trying to pay their bills. We attribute our success and quality to this very simple fact.  We genuinely LOVE what we do and our work shows it.

Hire someone you can trust.

Trust as in any relationship is key. You hire a team like us because we are the professional.  You trust their opinions and ideas and allow them to take some creative license knowing that at the end they will give you a film you will want to watch over and over. As Ray Roman would say, “by hiring us you have the piece of mind of getting a true professional who is going to make your wedding film an unforgettable heirloom for you, your family and friends.”

Happy Planning!

  We are proud to announce that the Beyond Blu Bungalow Venue Tours is back – making it an annual affair! This year is going to be a good one. Instead of having three tours in different regions, we are having one fun night in the park this February 13, 2014. Please join us for a fun night filled with romance, inspiration, and adventure – what better way to do a site visit for your dream venue while having an opportunity to meet some of the Bay Area’s best vendors. You can most certainly call it a date night and don’t have to plan anything except for reserving your seat stat! Your tour will begin at the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park and transportation will be provided from the Concourse to the Conservatory of Flowers and then back to the California Academy of Sciences. At each venue, you will be given beautiful thoughts and inspiration on what endless possibilities can be created in each space while feeling the fun energy of an event in each location. Food, beverage, decor, and surprises will be plentiful so you don’t want to miss out on this distinctive approach to planning your wedding or large social event.

Reserve your tickets here.

Early bird special runs through 1/30 at $40 a ticket. After that, it’s $50.

Event designers and planners are welcome to join as well – business and pleasure mixed together all in one night!
