Back in 2012, we were awarded our first ever Couples' Choice award from Wedding Wire. I didn't know much about it at that point. I definitely didn't understand what a huge honor it was. For those of you that don't know what it is, the Couples' Choice is given to the top 5% of a wedding category (wedding videographers for us)! And it is all because of people saying nice things about us. How cool is that!!!! I really kind of thought that it was given to us just because I was an advertiser. ha!
Along the way, we stopped paying for advertising, but yet we were still being awarded this badge. It was then that I really started to notice what was going on. One day I starting reading all of the reviews that had been left for us. Oh my word, we have some of the best families. Some reviews were written a couple of years after the wedding took place. For instance, Lauren, who lost her dad before her 2nd anniversary. Her video took on a different meaning afterwards. She writes:
"I am so lucky to have hired you for our after-rehearsal dinner and wedding, because the video itself is beautiful, but even more so now. You captured 2 toasts from him, our father-daughter dance, and his laughter! My Daddy had an infectious, joyful, booming laugh, and I have missed it with all my heart.
Along with my Daddy, the video also had moments with my Grandmother, a dear friend, and my husband's cousin who have also gone to Heaven. When I hired you, I did not consider that you would give us moments of happiness and LIFE with people we would later lose. But as time passes, that is a part of life. Thank goodness we found you in our wedding planning madness. Thank you for what you do, and the unanticipated gift you have given to us, to me years later."
Now we are in our 5th consecutive year for this award. It means more now than ever before. Thank you to everyone! We are honored that you have chosen us for your wedding day.
Main Street Productions will become Cinepear in January 2016.
