Virtual Weddings Produced
Most of us aren’t familiar with the technology required to broadcast an event online. “I’d recommend that anyone who’s planning a big digital wedding hire an IT person to help before they get any other vendor,” says Gorman. “Our team can emcee and run the entire Zoom call,” says Wedfuly cofounder and CEO Creidenberg, “handling all the spotlighting, muting, unmuting any media being played. What we tell the couple is, you just log on and set up your cameras—and then you can just enjoy the wedding.” Wedfuly also offers add-ons, including location scouting, invitations, and vendor liaison.
On Saturday, March 28, 2020, Wedfuly and Zoom pulled off their first virtual wedding—the bride walked down the aisle with a cardboard cut-out of her father before the bride’s father officiated the ceremony!—and plan on hosting many more in the weeks to come. “Wedfuly always provides creative approaches for our couples so the collaboration with Zoom was ideal for couples who wanted to keep their wedding date on schedule during these challenging times,” explains Caroline Creidenberg, founder and CEO of Wedfuly.
“We’d both been using Zoom for work, and the first time I saw the breakout feature I was like, Wow, this is the future. We read about our options online, and we came across Wedfuly, this company in Denver that helps people with their Zoom weddings, and set up a consultation. They understand how Zoom features fit into the course of a ceremony and reception, and they provide the backend support. They kind of quarterback the Zoom with a run-of-show.”
Wedfuly was founded by Caroline Creidenberg in 2017, with a mission to use technology to democratize the wedding industry. When we launched, our core product was an online wedding planning service.
When the COVID pandemic hit in March of 2020, Caroline was determined to find a way for couples to get married in a safe way, while still capturing the magic of an in-person wedding. One Zoom wedding later – the idea had legs. We’ve since planned and produced over 600 virtual weddings, all while building priceless relationships with our couples (and learning a ton!).
We’re creating a new wedding tradition that captures all the benefits of a traditional wedding while eliminating the crazy financial burden and stress that has plagued the industry for decades. Wedfuly is at the helm of disrupting the wedding industry by removing financial, geographical, and health barriers – allowing anyone, anywhere to get married with all their loved ones in attendance.
