*NOTE: If you have trouble viewing the photos, try refreshing and give it some time.
Day 1 = Sunday | STMs (Short Term Missionaries) and Campers arrive and go through a 24 hour training before campers arrive. They need to know what it’s like to be a person with a disability. At the end of the day, the STMs decorate flags to welcome each family!
Day 2 = Monday | Families are greeted by cheering STMs, each with their personalized flag. Campers meet their STMs and get to know their “buddy” who they’ll be hanging out with all week. The day ended with an ice cream social on the patio by the lake!
Day 3 = Tuesday | The day is scheduled with program time, free time, and all kinds of activities to do, along with all-camp worship in the mornings. Throughout the week, families are can check their “Joy Mail” in their mail boxes in the dining hall. A special campfire is prepared, complete with silly songs and music.
Day 4 = Wednesday | Crazy dress-up day and more fun activities. Programs provided for people of all ages! Parents/caretakes enjoy a date night out with a delicious fancy dinner while the kids have a blast in their own fun activities.
Day 5 = Thursday | Therapy dogs come for a visit and sensory activities available ALL DAY! The women enjoy a special pampering time while the men go out and be men. The day ends with a special Talent Show that campers and STMs have been planning all week
Day 6 = Friday | Time to go home…what a fun retreat! You never know who you’ll meet at Joni & Friends – see you next year!
Brides and grooms, you’re smart to do your research before hiring vendors for your wedding. Since this whole experience is full of “firsts” it can feel complicated and get downright confusing trying to keep track of everything. And yet, after a jam-packed wedding day full of details and excitement you’ll be surprised at how fast it went!
We want to help you busy brides in their research and we’ve got a series of Wedding Video FAQs that would be great to browse through as you’re planning your wedding. Previously we looked at:
Q3: I don’t think I can afford a wedding video. Can you help me?
A: We have many brides who call us asking about price. “Your videos are amazing! But…they look so fancy…can I really afford that?” Here at Evermoore Films we offer a variety of payment plans to fit your needs. A deposit and a contract secures your date with and the rest can be paid in various ways: one lump sum at the time of contract, 3 equal payments, or monthly payment plans. Let’s take a look at some basic facts and figures.
Assuming your wedding is in 6 months and you put down a deposit of $750 you can get…
A package that is $6,000 for$875/month.
A package that is $5,000 for$710/month.
A package that is $4,000 for$545/month.
A package that is $3,000 for$375/month.
Assuming your wedding is in 1 year and you put down a deposit of $750 you can get…
A package that is $6,000 for$440/month.
A package that is $5,000 for$355/month.
A package that is $4,000 for$270/month.
A package that is $3,000 for$190/month.
Now remember, these are all cinematography prices. If that’s still just not going to work, don’t let that stop you from getting a video of your wedding day! Hire a videographer! What might their prices be?
Assuming you put down a deposit of $500 you can get…
A package that is $2,000 for $250/month – 6 months from your wedding
A package that is $2,000 for $125/month – 1 year from your wedding
A package that is $1,000 for $85/month – 6 months from your wedding
A package that is $1,000 for $45/month – 1 year from your wedding
Now your videographer might not be able to allow monthly payments, but it’s great to know these facts and figures for your own saving purposes! And in the most extreme case where even a videographer just can’t be squeezed into your budget, yes, we hate to say this…but…grab an iPhone, ask a friend, grab a stranger (well, okay, not really), but make sure you get SOMETHING rather than NOTHING. Your wedding day happens once in a lifetime so think about these special memories from a long-term point of view.
Fun Fact: Let’s say you just turned 20 and you decide to start saving money towards your own wedding someday – you set aside $50/month out of your paycheck. When you’re 21 you meet a guy and start dating. Two years later, you’re 23 and he proposes. You set the date for just after your 24th birthday. How much money do you have in the bank for your wedding video fund from the past 5 years? $3,000. Amazing, isn’t it? Yes, it’s possible. Start saving now!
Fun FUN Fact: Assume the above scenario…but your hubby-to-be starts saving his money too. If he saved $50/month out his paycheck starting when he was 20, meets you when he’s 23, proposes at 25 and gets married just after his 26th birthday, how much money will HE have saved up ALSO toward your wedding? $4,200! That’s a total of $7,200 saved at just $50/month between the two of you!
A few weeks ago we were approached by Mark Nessia from TBC Media who wanted to feature us in an article for the Bakersfield Life Magazine. They were looking to do an article to fit the theme of the February issue of Valentine’s Day that was all about love, sweet treats, and pets and thought we were the perfect fit as “a couple who films couples in love”.
They wanted to know about us and our story – how we met, when we got married, and what we love about what we do for work. We enjoyed sharing our story with Mark so that he could write about us and share our story with others. Now I won’t “spill the beans” about the article, but you’ll have to read it for yourself. There’s a cute picture of our little “family” that includes our golden retriever puppy on page 6, and the full article can be found on page 108! Enjoy!
