Why Having a Videographer at your Wedding is a Must!

| , , , , , , , , , , , , | Leave a Comment

One of the vendors people put the most time and thought into selecting while planning their wedding is the photographer. It is SO important to make sure you have a photographer that you love for your wedding, but why stop there? We have seen more and more couples bring in a videographer for their big day as well! Some people may wonder if a photographer and videographer is necessary, but we’re here to tell you why having both is so important to reliving your wedding at Lesner Inn!

  1. Getting to see it in action

Having still shots of all the different events happening during your big day is great, but having someone record every moment will bring everything to life. You get to actually see the guest’s tears while you say your vows and see all of the laughs during the reception.  Having a video of all of the highlights from your big day will allow you to relive your wedding day over and over again!



  1. You can’t be everywhere at once

You may have some serious FOMO on your wedding day seeing how busy you will be with those pesky reception traditions, taking photos on our Sunset Deck, and going around thanking your guests.  This is why having a videographer there to capture all of the moments you miss is a necessity!There will be so many fun dances, conversations, and smiles being shared between guests and having a video of it all will make you feel like you were everywhere at once during your special day!


  1. For people who couldn’t make it to your wedding

Unfortunately there will be guests that you invited who, for whatever reason, couldn’t make it to your wedding.Having a videographer to capture all of the precious moments your friends and family would have wanted to see is a great way to make these guests feel included! You could even make them copies of the video as a little gift to show them you missed their presence!


  1. One video instead of hundreds of pictures

A huge plus of having a videographer is that you have one video to share with all of your friends and family instead of having to upload hundreds of photos! It is also super easy for any of your followers to share, or for you to send to others through email!


Don’t get me wrong photographs are a necessity to have from your wedding, but hiring a videographer allows you and your loved ones to truly relive your special day on the Lynnhaven River as many times as you want! So when you start to plan your big day, we suggest looking into having a videographer there to capture every moment!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
