Barrington’s White House has the privilege of working with gifted, trustworthy vendor partners to help give each of our couples their dream wedding day. Our new blog series, Vendor Spotlight with BWH, will feature a few preferred vendors each month to highlight what services they provide and how they can make your wedding everything you’d want it to be, even during COVID-19 restrictions.
With live-streamed weddings all the rage now, we ‘sat down’ (on Zoom) with one of our preferred wedding videographers, Chris Rodriguez of CR Films, to ask all the questions you’ve been wondering – please enjoy.
What is CR Films and what services do you provide couples?
CR: CR Films is a videography/photography production agency/studio offering a wide range of professional services. We specialize in innovative multimedia solutions.
Our Forever Yours Films team provides wedding videography services to wedding couples who want to document their special day as they join their lives. We combine our passion for telling stories with our years of experience to deliver visual heirlooms they’ll treasure forever and ever.
Our goal is to bring your story to life through a wedding video – allowing the two of you to relive every laugh, every tear, and every moment that went by in a flash. Your loved ones and your future selves will thank you for allowing your celebration to serve as a legacy of family history for generations to come. It is a once in a lifetime day, so leave it to us to give you a once in a lifetime film.
How have you integrated live streaming into your business model during COVID-19?
CR: We continue to offer videography but we have added an important component during the pandemic: Wedding Live Streaming. We’ve been receiving lots of rescheduling requests, and we started thinking of ways we could still offer value to those who were not rescheduling but were now down-scaling to only having their ceremony with a few guests. It’s a great way for couples to share their day with those who cannot attend.
We’re taking advantage of YouTube as our live streaming platform. We embed the output directly on our website so that everyone has a central location for where to go to watch the ceremony.
With live streaming, couples now have the option to get married on their original date and still have family and friends be witness to the joining of their lives.
How can readers best get in touch with you?
CR: The best way to get in contact with Forever Yours Films is through the contact form found inside the website. Of course, you can also call or email – we welcome any way the wedding couple feels most comfortable with contacting us!
