Keep Doing What Were Doing | Breezes Banquet & Event Center | Utica, New York Wedding Film | Kelly + Steve

How did the two of you meet?

We met at the bar, The Bullet. At the end of the night, Steve & his friend gave me & my friend a ride home. Then lost touch for a few months, reconnected on Varick St., & the rest is history.

What was your favorite memory of your wedding day?

Do I have to pick just one? Our whole day was absolutely perfect & more than I could have dreamed of. Besides marrying the love of my life in front of all of our friends & family, I think the fireworks are my most favorite memory. They were packed with a lot of meaning for me.

What were the main influences behind the style of your wedding, it’s location and your venue choice for your big day?

The venue was a no brainer for us; Breeze’s is so modern, the outdoor patio was perfect, & the Roser’s were amazing to work with. 

What would your top tips be for somebody planning their wedding?

As the bride, I really struggled with wanting to go to cocktail hour vs. everyone not seeing me until being introduced as Mr & Mrs. We ended up going to cocktail hour & thanking everyone at that time. Also we cut the cake fairly quickly in the evening. This helped immensely with being pulled in a million directions & we were really able to enjoy the reception. I also would tell any bride, relax & enjoy every minute of planning & the day. Everyone says in the blink of an eye it comes & goes, & they are 100% right!!

What made you decide to hire a wedding videographer? Any tips for couples on the fence for a film?

We honestly were on the fence about a videographer as well, but all of our friends & family had one regret about their day; they wished they had one if they didn’t. The day flys by & we are so excited to be able to relive our special day all of the time, along with seeing things that we wouldn’t have normally gotten to.
P.S – Gavin is one of the most down to earth & easy people to work with, so I highly recommend him 😉

Anything else you would like to share?

Thank you to everyone, including our vendors who came out and celebrated our big day with us.
