Alexandra and Vincent Celebrate Wedding at Bride's Family Home

Vincent and Alexandra Velasquez celebrated their wedding at the bride's family home in Williamstown, New Jersey.

Engaged in 2016, the couple skipped a venue search and asked the bride’s parents if they could celebrate at their home. 

Without hesitation, Mom and Dad accepted. But work needed to be done.

The entire family pitched in with installing a new fence, re-siding the house and more - finishing a home renovation that had been started by the bride's dad.

The family referred to the Victorian-style home as 'The Venue,' leading up to the occasion.

Alexandra and Vincent created a spectacular backyard wedding reception to rival any event venue.

It was truly a D.I.Y wedding - the couple worked with a number of vendors to bring everything from flatware, catering, tent, restrooms and entertainment to the backyard. 

Alexandra and Vincent relied on an entire cast of family and friends to help make their vision come to life.

The newlyweds are forever thankful to their Wedding Planner, Carey Loch, for her friendship and guidance throughout the days, weeks and months leading up to their special day.

They also turned to a longtime friend - Sandra Golis Strang - to officiate their wedding.

If you find yourself lost on the Hurricane's site, you may recognize Vincent as a co-owner and co-founder of the company. And the Best Man, Strato Doumanis? He's the other half.

Vincent and Alexandra chose the best of the best when it came to Hurricane's staff to provide DJ entertainment, Lighting, Videography and Photography services for the wedding.

Meet Hurricane Productions' Nate Hawley, the go-to DJ for Rutgers Athletics. Whenever there's a football game, wrestling match, or gymnastics meet at RU, you're almost certain to find Nate behind the DJ booth.

University Football DJ

Nate first connected with Hurricane Productions after attending a Rutgers event the company had produced. His lifelong passion for music and DJing propelled him to reach out and ask how he could get involved. With a strong interest in being a college sports event DJ, Hurricane gave then-sophomore Nate his first Rutgers DJ opportunity in 2014. Within a couple of years, Nate became known as the “Official DJ of Rutgers Football.”

"My music library and knowledge has grown and my mixing is no longer tied to a specific genre," he says. "I’m comfortable with any crowd and I can now use the mic without stumbling through announcements

While Nate is best known for entertaining crowds on game day, he's so much more than the Rutgers Football DJ. He's also one of our most popular private event entertainers. Whether he's working solo or as part of a DJ-MC team, Nate will curate the perfect playlist for you and your guests while delivering the professionalism you expect.

Book Last Minute, Raw Footage and Edit Later

There's no way around it: Weddings can get very expensive, very quickly. After you've booked your venue, officiant, photographer, DJ, florist, and countless other vendors, you might not have a lot of money left over to spend on video. You might not even be sure you want a wedding videographer at all.

But Hurricane Productions isn't your average wedding videographer. We offer videography services and options you won't find at most other companies. Here are three things that make us a great choice for couples on the fence about video:

You can book us at the last minute.

Couples who know they want video typically book their wedding videographer early on in the planning process. But some couples aren't sure if they want to invest in video until a few months before the big day -- and they're often disappointed to learn that most local videographers have already been booked for their date.

Because Hurricane Productions works with nearly a dozen photo and video professionals, you can come to us 30 to 60 days before your wedding date, and we'll have someone available to shoot your event. Rachel and Steve Chassen hired Hurricane just three weeks before their wedding, and we were able to provide them with a videographer to capture raw footage of their day.

We offer raw footage packages for couples on a budget.

Our affordable wedding video editing packages start at just $1,295 for six hours of coverage and a three to five-minute highlight video. But if that's still outside your budget, you don't have to pay for edits at all.

We offer couples the option to just hire a wedding videographer to shoot and deliver raw footage of your day. This means you'll get the unedited clips of your wedding events -- ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception -- directly from the videographer's camera, delivered via our secure cloud server. From there, you can choose to keep the clips as they are or edit them together to make your own wedding video.

Not sure what raw footage entails? Learn more about it here.

We store your footage for up to a year (in case you change your mind).

A highlight edit of you raw footage can make a great holiday gift, or one year anniversary gift to each other!

Picture this : Your own private Dropbox folder. Access anytime for up to one year.

What happens if you get our raw footage from your wedding and now wish you'd gotten an edit package? It's not too late -- Hurricane Productions has worked with plenty of couples to incorporate video edits after their wedding day. We store your footage on our secure cloud server for up to one year after your event. That means you have a full 365 days to decide whether you want us to turn your clips into a beautiful, feature-length cinematic film, a short highlight video to share on social media, or both.

Jessica and Joe came back to us after their wedding to request both a highlight video and a feature-length edit:

Lisa and Jaime ordered their highlight video after their wedding day (and were absolutely thrilled with it!):

If you've already booked us to edit a highlight video for you, you can upgrade to a full cinematic edit up to year after after your wedding day, too.

So, it's OK if you want to just get raw footage. It's OK if you decide you want professional edits six months after your wedding. It's OK if you're not even sure you're ready to book a wedding videographer yet. With Hurricane's flexible options, we can accommodate any couple's needs, timeline, and budget. Get in touch and let's talk about your vision for your wedding video.

The Truth About Raw Footage in Wedding Videography

Many modern wedding videographers, including Hurricane Productions, offer couples their raw footage as part of their video package.

There are a lot of questions and misconceptions about what raw video footage is and what you can do with it. Whether you've already booked your videography services or are just exploring your options, learn more about this line item and understand what you'll actually be getting from your wedding videographer.

What is raw footage and what do I get from my videographer?

The most common misconception about raw footage is that it's one, long, continuous video of your wedding events, from start to finish. In reality, your raw footage is a collection of all the video files your videographer took throughout the day. Because a new file is created every time the camera stops and starts, each clip is short, usually lasting from a few seconds to a few minutes.

While the files you receive should be in chronological order, you may find some clips that are out of sequence if the videographer had to switch memory cards or if you had a second videographer shooting your wedding. Additionally, the file names will come directly from the camera. So instead of seeing something like, "Ceremony Clip 1" for the first clip from your ceremony, the file names might be, "DCIM_0001."

We deliver our raw footage to every video client, directly from the camera, through our secure cloud server. We can walk you through your clips or sequencing if you have questions, such as which series of files came from which videographer.

Do I need my raw footage?

With a Hurricane Productions video package, your raw footage is already included in the purchase price. However, you may be wondering if you really need that footage if we're already creating a formal edit of your wedding day.

Keep in mind that there are often six to 12 hours worth of raw footage from any given wedding, and feature-length cinematic edits are just 60 to 90 minutes long. When we're editing your video, we'll choose the highlights and best shots of the day, but most of the footage will not make the final cut.

Even if you only watch through your raw footage files once, you'll be able to see every single second that was captured during your wedding. There may be little moments you had forgotten about, like a quiet, private conversation with your new spouse after the ceremony – or things you didn't even see happening, like a hilarious clip of your aunt tearing up the dance floor. Having your raw footage means you'll always have access to these moments.

What can I do with raw footage?

The great thing about raw footage is that it can be arranged in countless different ways to tell the same story from different perspectives. If you're handy with video editing software, there's no limit to what you can do with your raw footage. You and your spouse can each create videos of your favorite individual moments from the wedding. You can make a funny video of outtakes and silly moments from the reception to share with your friends. You can even piece the clips together in chronological order to create your own documentary-style video to accompany the professional cinematic edit you'll receive.

Can I have my raw footage professionally edited if I didn't buy an edit package up front?

Most of our couples choose to purchase a video package that includes editing up front. Others, like Jessica & Joe and Lisa & Jaime, hire us to simply film and deliver raw footage – but after the wedding, they realize they'd like a professional edit. In other cases, a couple may initially opt for our Short Movie Package, which includes a three to five-minute highlight video, and later decide they want a feature-length cinematic edit.

Regardless of what you hired us to do, it's never too late to add editing services if you have your raw footage. We are always happy to accommodate post-event requests for editing services, even if it's months later.

In addition to wedding videography, Hurricane Productions offers photography and entertainment services. Interested in one of our all-inclusive wedding packages? Check out our pricing page or request a quote for your big day.

Should I Hire One or Two Wedding Videographers?

If you and your fiancé have decided to invest in wedding videography, then you already know the value of having your day documented on film. Photography is still important, but pictures alone won't allow you to relive your wedding the way a beautifully edited cinematic video can.

The question, then, is whether you hire one or two wedding videographers. There are pros and cons to each, and the right choice for you depends on your budget, your timeline, and your vision for your wedding film.

Here are a few important factors to consider when you're deciding which route to go for your wedding videography package.

How much do you want to spend on wedding videography?

When a couple is contemplating wedding videography services, the package they choose is often dictated by how much they can afford to spend. Hiring a second videographer means paying for an additional person's time and talent, so if you're on a tight budget, you may only be able to afford one. However, couples with a little more flexibility in their funds can explore their options for a two-person team.

A mid-point between having one and two wedding videographers is a package that includes one main videographer and an assistant. The assistant won't be operating the camera for the whole day, as a second videographer would, but this person can help the main videographer set up audio equipment, scout out good angles and locations, and direct the couple and their wedding party while the videographer captures that perfect shot.

How soon do you want your wedding video?

We make our couples' edited wedding videos available within 8 to 12 weeks after their event. Most videographers give this type of range because the time it takes to create the finished video product(s) depends on the package the couple selected and the amount of footage we need to review.

There's no guarantee you'll have your wedding video a month earlier if you opt for a single, half-day videographer, but there's a chance it could take longer to edit if you choose two: Editing six hours of footage from one videographer is a very different process than piecing together footage from two videographers who filmed for 12 hours each.

Regardless of how many videographers you hire, your service provider should be able to give you access to all your raw footage long before the final edits are completed.

What kind of wedding film do you envision?

The biggest advantage of a second videographer is the variety of shots and perspectives that can be included in your final wedding video.

Wedding photography and videography is often heavily focused on the bride, but with a second videographer, both you and your fiancé will be able to have your moments in the spotlight. This is especially important for couples who plan to get ready for the ceremony in separate locations. One videographer can only film one of you at a time, but a second videographer ensures that both the bride and her ladies and the groom and his guys have their wedding prep time documented.

As with many creative endeavors, two heads are often better than one when it comes to shooting and editing a wedding video. While your videographers will be able to collaborate and work as a team, each will also bring their own individual style, flair, and vision to the finished product. A video that combines the work of two wedding videographers means you get two unique perspectives telling the same beautiful love story: yours.

No matter what kind of wedding videography you want, we have a package to fit your needs. Visit our pricing page to learn more, or reach out to request a quote.

Hurricane Productions helped the couple celebrate their big day with entertainment and media services, but it wasn't the first time they've worked with the bride: Founders Vincent Velasquez and Strato Doumanis DJed and emceed Lisa's Sweet 16 over a decade ago.

While most Hurricane couples select one of our video editing packages during the consultation phase, we're also happy to work with clients like Lisa and Jaime on post-wedding edits if they have a more flexible budget after the big day, or simply change their mind about having a wedding film. Whether you request edits one month or one year later, we'll pull your raw footage from our secure cloud server and create your video.

Joe and Jamie, Clarks Landing

When you’re getting married in a coastal state, why not hold your wedding at a place that overlooks a beautiful body of water?

That’s exactly what Joe and Jamie Forsyth did for their summer waterfront wedding.

Rachel Goodgal and Stephen Budinsky tied the knot at scenic Perona Farms in Andover, New Jersey. The beautifully landscaped grounds, which overlook Perona Lake, provided the perfect backdrop for the couple's day.

After getting ready with their respective wedding parties, Rachel and Stephen shared a first look. Stephen waited for his bride in one of Perona Farms' sunny atriums, and Rachel walked up behind him. The couple enjoyed a few private moments together before the day's events began.

In the Jewish tradition, the spouses-to-be signed the Ketubah in an intimate gathering of close family and friends. They then exchanged vows in a romantic outdoor ceremony.

Hurricane Productions videographers Corynn Egreczky and Tyler Ajamian were there throughout the Budinsky wedding to capture every special moment, from the pre-ceremony preparations to the last dance. After their big day, Rachel and Stephen received a feature-length, 60 to 90-minute edit of the full-day footage, including the ceremony, toasts, special dances, and a beautiful rendition of "Can't Help Falling in Love," performed by the bride for her new husband. The couple's video package also came with a 3 to 4-minute highlight video, which is perfect to share with friends and family on social media.

If you're on the fence about a second videographer for your wedding, consider this: With two professionals documenting your day, you'll get two different perspectives, highlighting the experiences of both you and your fiancé. The resulting wedding footage will truly reflect both of you as individuals and as a couple beginning the journey of marriage together.

Megan and Tyler - Versailles Ballroom Wedding - Ramada Inn in Toms River, NJ

On a gorgeous late summer day, Megan Doorly and Tyler Ruperto were married in the quiet New Jersey beach town of Lavallette.

The couple and their respective wedding parties celebrated and exchanged gifts as they prepared for the big day. Megan and her bridesmaids walked from their rental house down to the shore. Meanwhile, Tyler and his groomsmen departed from their rooms at the Ramada Inn in Toms River – where the new Mr. and Mrs. Ruperto would later hold their reception – and shared a toast on the bus ride to the beach.

Megan and Tyler planned a first look that was captured by Hurricane Productions media professionals. The wedding party lined up along the entrance to the beach, creating an aisle for the bride to walk through. The groom waited for her near the water, with his back turned.

She tapped his shoulder and the two shared a private, emotional moment together before their ocean-side photo shoot.

That afternoon, family and friends gathered at the Lavallette Gazebo for Megan and Tyler's ceremony, for which Hurricane Productions provided a wireless sound system. After the couple exchanged vows, guests headed over to the Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada Inn for the cocktail hour and reception. DJ and MC Alvin Gay kept the party going, from the grand introductions through the final dance of the evening.

As part of their package, Megan and Tyler received a feature-length, 60 to 90-minute edit of the full-day footage taken by our videographers. This included the first look, ceremony, special dances, toasts, and even a special Delta Gamma Song performed for Megan by her sorority sisters.

Sparkler Send-Off: The Perfect Way to End Your Wedding

There's nothing quite like a sparkler send-off to bookend a fantastic wedding reception.

Think about the typical end of a wedding reception. The music stops, the lights come on, and in an instant, the mood and the magic of the evening comes to a screeching halt. Guests slowly shuffle off the dance floor, gather their things, and mill around the venue saying goodbyes and having last-minute conversations. It's a pretty anticlimactic way to finish one of the most exciting events in a couple's life.

One way to end your wedding on a high note is to incorporate a sparkler send-off.

Before you and your new spouse leave your reception, have your friends and family line up outside your venue with sparklers. Once the sparklers are lit, your guests can raise them above their heads to create a pathway to your first night as newlyweds. This allows you to keep up the energy and excitement of the evening, and give your guests something big to talk about on their way out.

So what does a sparkler send-off look like? Check out the send-off guests gave this couple, who were married at HollyHedge Estate in New Hope, PA. In addition to providing DJ entertainment, Hurricane Productions was there to capture this special moment on video:

Whether you choose to close out your wedding with sparklers or a different way, you'll want to have your videographer there to document it. What better way to end your wedding video than with the special send-off? Hurricane Productions captures and edits wedding moments, including sparkler send-offs, into a beautiful, artistic compilations.
