Denver Wedding Cinematography | Grant-Humphreys Mansion

Monica & Brett | Wedding Highlights from Premium Digital Solutions on Vimeo.

Monica and Brett exchanged their wedding vows and danced the night away at Denver’s historic Grant-Humphreys Mansion on a rainy May day.  Such a fun couple, so sweet, and so great!  A big thank you to Stephanie from Bella Notte coordinating the events of the wedding day.

They began their shoot at Berencies salon where Monica and her bridesmaids had their hair and make-up done.  Brett and his groomsmen were hanging at the Burnsley hotel near Grant-HumpherysMansion.  They were in a spacious suite on the 12th floor overlooking downtown Denver.  Awesome views up there!  After Monica’s hair appointment, she arrived at the mansion to finish getting ready.  With the help of her bridesmaids she put on her dress in one of the large beautiful rooms upstairs at the mansion. 

Mother Nature didn’t cooperate with the weather during the ceremony.  On the positive side, no wind and no down pour, just gentle and consistent rain.  From a video standpoint, it was interesting to see the all the guest under a sea of umbrellas and the gentle sound of the rain added a sound of calmness to the ceremony.

After dinner, while everyone was setting up shots of the cake down stairs somebody tripped off the fire alarm.  Everyone had to wait outside until the fire department arrived to check the premises and shut the fire alarm off.  Well, a couple of the bridesmaids decided to make the best of the situation and ask the firemen if they could mock rescue them from the building.  Of course the cameras were left rolling to capture the priceless moment.

What to look for in a DJ Service | A Music Plus

There are so many details that go into planning a wedding that finding the right service can be somewhat daunting. With our friends at A Music Plus we are able to provide a list of what exactly you need to know to find the right DJ. Any quality company will have no problem answering these questions for you, so do not be afraid to ask!

  • Look for a company with at least five years of experience and that can provide good references
  • Make sure that every thing you are promised is presented to you in a written contract
  • Call the company during off hours to learn how they can be reached if something goes wrong
  • Use a company that is locally owned – you will have better luck if you do this instead of a nationwide business
  • Find a company that is willing to provide personal consultations at their place of business and promises to follow up with you the week of your wedding to confirm
  • Look for a company that is flexible in what they offer you, after all, it is your day and they should honor your requests
  • Use a company that belongs to organizations like: International Special Events Society (ISES), the National Association of Catering Executives (NACE), the American Disc Jockey Association (ADJA) and other organizations of this type
  • Learn about their Liability and workers compensation insurance – you don’t want to be held liable if something goes wrong
