Features & Benefits
Features and Benefits of McElroy Weddings What will we get?
Every wedding, regardless of package, is shot in High Definition by professional-grade cameras such as the SONY XDCAM and Canon HD SLRs, so every bride and groom is assured that they are receiving the best quality.
McElroy Weddings will base the shooting on your schedule and package length. The wedding day is then chronologically divided into sections, edited into chapters, and burned to DVD or upgraded to Blu-ray for final delivery. As every wedding is unique, the chapters can be divided differently by request, but typically the DVD is divided into the following chapters:
|DVD Menu with Chapter Navigation||Wedding Trailer|
||Trailer The wedding trailer chapter is an artistic blend of video from throughout the day that serves to summarize and highlight the best moments and the setting of the wedding. Set to a song of your choice, trailers can take on different tones from epic and dramatic to subtle and relaxed, from energetic to calming: The selection is yours to make.|
|Perhaps more aptly named ‘photo documentary’, this unique chapter follows the wedding party as they take formal photos. Watch as your photos come alive, but also catch moments between the poses: The limo ride to the formal site, stunning panoramas of the location, family moments, the first glances between newlyweds . . . If a picture can say a thousand words, than video can say a million. All the best moments are compiled and edited to a song of your choosing.||This chapter takes on similar goals to the ceremony chapter in that the event is maintained as close to reality as possible. On site, professional audio can be run directly from the DJ or live band to the camera so no toast or song is lost. Editors, for time purposes, will transition seamlessly from speech to first dance to cake cutting without missing a single important moment. The chapter concludes with a carefully edited montage of all the best (and worst) dance moves. Natural audio is usually the preferred choice for most brides, grooms, and editors, but song selections can be incorporated as requested.|
|Credits||DVD & Blu-ray|
|Credits come in 2 forms: Basic and Hollywood style. The basic credits list important names (Bridal party, officiate, parents, grand parents, etc.), favorite quotes, and messages against a black screen and set to a song of your choice. The Hollywood style credits also list the information above to a song of your choice, but also include additional background footage from throughout the wedding day. This footage includes clips that may have been left on the editing room floor or clips that come from different angles in multi-cam wedding packages. Highly customizable, the credit chapter is yet another way to personalize your DVD or upgraded Blu-ray.||We offer both traditional DVD and Blu-ray DVD for your wedding. McElroy Weddings was one of the first in Boston to offer blu-ray weddings and we’ve been offering this for over 4 years now.
We know HD and to experience your wedding in this format is a very special experience.
