Our Real Detroit Wedding: July 28, 2018
“We would absolutely recommend Mike Staff Productions. There was cost savings in bundling, and it was also great that the videographer knew the DJ.” – Happy bride, Chrissie
Our Love Story
“We met in 2008 during our speech class, but we didn’t begin dating until 2009 when Austin was in his first year of college and I was a junior in high school. We fell in love immediately and have been together ever since (even surviving 2 years of long distance dating!) Austin proposed on a hot air balloon in 2016. He is afraid of heights but he knew that this was something that I have always wanted to do!”
Our Wedding Video
“While photos are timeless and beautiful, our wedding video has perfectly captured the feel of the day. We can relive each aspect and even see parts of the wedding that we missed (like cocktail hour). We wanted to be able to look back on this video 25 years in the future and remember how happy we were, our guests tearing it up on the dance floor, and important moments like speeches and first dances. The video perfectly captured how amazing the day was, and I would recommend every couple hire a videographer, hands down!”
If watching Chrissie & Austin’s wedding video wasn’t reason enough to include videography in your day, here are 4 more!
Our Wedding DJ
Our wedding DJ Kevin asked us what our favorite concert was on our phone call prior to the wedding. We didn’t ask him why he asked us this, but we noticed that during dinner he played songs by both of our favorite artists. This was a great personal touch that we most certainly noticed. DJ Kevin did a great job reading the crowd & keeping the dance floor packed – especially when Closer by The Chainsmokers came on!
Our Wedding Memories
I wanted the wedding to have a vintage and classic vibe since our wedding venue (The War Memorial) was built in 1910. I also wanted the ballroom to have whimsical and summery elements since we were married in mid-summer.
Our first look was one of my favorite parts of the entire day. When we were first planning our wedding, we thought we weren’t going to have a first look. But we are SO glad we decided to do it. It was the first thing we did after everyone got ready and experiencing such a happy moment early in the day set everything in motion for the rest of the afternoon and evening.
Thank you Chrissie & Austin! It was an honor to work with you!
