From Harford County government:
Planning a wedding? Swan Harbor Farm will host a free Wedding Expo on Saturday, October 29 from noon to 4:00 p.m. at 401 Oakington Road in Havre de Grace. The expo will be a one-stop opportunity to meet florists, caterers, photographers, wedding cake and bridal gown vendors, and other wedding professionals. Tours of Swan Harbor Farm’s award-winning wedding venue will also be available.
Well before the wedding date, you should have a sit-down meeting with the engaged couple. Get to know what they are looking for in their video. Do they want to make sure you capture certain moments? Will there be any surprises or choreographed dances you need to know about? Will the bride be wearing her Great-Great Grandmother’s earrings? Being ready to capture these moments will truly make your work stand out. B-roll will be your best friend and worst enemy when editing. Not having enough will make you job much harder. It’s easy to remember to shoot exteriors of the venue, but don’t forget that there are people coming to these venues. When the bride and groom watch their wedding video, they will want to see their friends and family in attendance. Sometimes it’s best to see wedding film examples before deciding on a cinematographer.
Situated on 500 rolling acres overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, Swan Harbor Farm offers breathtaking views, lush gardens, a formal tented area, and a beautifully restored Victorian farmhouse. Swan Harbor Farm is a Harford County Parks & Rec facility available to rent for weddings, special events, and corporate gatherings.
RSVP is not required, but is recommended to facilitate the tours. For more information or to RSVP, please call 410-939-6767 or visit www.swanharborfarm.org
