COMMON QUESTIONS I GET ASKED AS A Nashville WEDDING Videographer

Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BEST WEDDING VENUES IN NASHVILLE?
A: Personally, I love many of Nashville wedding venues! Many are rustic, industrial, modern, southern, yet timeless at the same time. Many offer convenient parking, beautiful backdrops for wedding photos, and the peace that you're looking for on such a special day. Have a look below for some of the best Nashville wedding venues and click on the one(s) you want more info on! Each venue image below will take you to a blog post from a real wedding that we have filmed there.

Q: NASHVILLE WEDDING VENUES ARE GETTING BOOKED UP! HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY VENUE?
A: Nashville venues are extremely popular, so as soon as you know your wedding date that you want - book it! Don't hesitate at all to lock in your wedding venue. And when you tour the venue of your dreams, it's even a good idea to have a backup date in mind. After all, if that Saturday you want to book is already taken, booking that venue on a Friday or Sunday can not only be available, but it might be available for a lower rate as well! Each owner/manager operates differently, so make sure to get in touch with them directly and ask your questions early. There's never a time "too early" to lock in the venue and the vendors who you really want to ensure are there for you on your wedding day. Same goes for your Nashville wedding videographer - us! We've had many couples even book with us prior to their wedding to ensure they have their date reserved on our calendar, and then they find a wedding venue that fits that date. Nashville's popular wedding venues book usually at least 12 months in advance.

Q: WHERE SHOULD I GET READY FOR MY NASHVILLE WEDDING?
A: It really depends on which Nashville wedding venue that you book, but many venues offer getting-ready areas. If it's possible, I'd highly recommend that you get ready on-site. It makes for stress-free day, you don't have to rush around from one place to the next, and you simply are just more present with your day. That said, if your venue doesn't have a place for you to get ready thats big enough or beautiful enough for what you're wanting, I'd recommend getting a gorgeous Air BnB or Hotel room somewhere close to your venue with big windows and tons of natural light.

As Nashville wedding videographers, we have worked many weddings in the area, I highly recommend you book a venue where you can get ready there. The logistics of the whole day are simpler, your day is more laid back, and more enjoyable.

Q: WHERE SHOULD WE TAKE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS IN NASHVILLE?
A: At your venue! Heading off-site in Nashville is not recommended unless you add in ample time, so book a wedding venue that makes for amazing photos! To be quite frank, Nashville traffic makes it complicated to do offsite photos. If you choose a wedding venue downtown there are photo options close by, just plan in adequate travel times and transportation for you, your bridal party, and your photo and video teams!

Have a look through some of the venues listed on this page. They're linked over to individual blog posts so you can learn more about each. As always, let us know your questions.

Q: HOW MANY HOURS OF VIDEOGRAPHY COVERAGE DO WE NEED?
A: It totally depends on your big day as each wedding is unique, but most couples are totally happy with 8 to 9 hours of coverage. If you are wanting more of the "all day" sort of coverage, 10 hours would be your best match. The biggest decision is really all about how much reception that you want covered by your Nashville wedding videographer. Are you planning on doing a special send-off at the end of the night? If so, you might want that 10 hour coverage -- if you don't want to do a fake send-off when your videographer is scheduled to leave. There are a few variables that affect what is a good number of hours of coverage. For now, the most important thing is locking in your Nashville wedding videographer. You can always add on time after everything is made official, too. So, at the very minimum, I highly recommend you start with at least 8 hours, and that's what roughly 60% of couples who book me stick with.
