should be leaving immediately too so they will get to the venue earlier
than the couple. Video footage of the couple stepping down the limo when
they arrive at the reception should be taken. Meanwhile, there are some
ways for the videographers to be able to set up their equipment in the
reception before the couple arrives. There are some extra shots that can
be taken while the bride and the groom are on the way to the reception.

the couple is going from one table to the other mingling with their
guests who in return is wishing the couple best wishes.
Some wedding reception video package includes a
montage of photos of the couple from their childhood until they met.
They are interviewed separately and would be sharing to the guest the
