What You Need To Know

We hired Krissi as our wedding videographer and could not have been happier with her or more thrilled with the final product. Krissi was sweet and professional from day 1, making herself available for phone consults (we planned our wedding from across the country) and answering my many questions. On the day of the wedding, Krissi was absolutely lovely and put us at ease as we went through all the different parts of the day, from the first look and photo session to the ceremony and reception. She was discreet but managed to get unbelievable shots the whole day! We had a Jewish wedding and asked Krissi to capture lots of symbolic parts of the ceremony and reception, which she was vigilant about. She was also flexible about staying even longer than we had contracted for, which we really appreciated. As for the final video, my husband, our families, and I could not be more thrilled. Kris managed to squeeze every special moment into a beautiful 8-minute video. She captured the emotion of the day and night so well, and her editing was really beautiful, moving between different scenes and using the ceremony and speeches to tie the whole thing together. We keep saying it's like the trailer for a movie we are dying to see! I'd highly recommend Krissi Cook to anyone planning a wedding in the SLC area, and especially to anyone planning a destination wedding.

Flavia and the team at Versa Artistry were absolutely fantastic. They did hair and makeup for me, 6 bridesmaids, and two mothers for our wedding at the Montage Deer Valley in September. They were extremely professional and speedy, and made us all look absolutely beautiful. I LOVED my hair and makeup -- did not feel overdone at all, just a more beautiful version of myself. My bridesmaids, who have all been in many weddings, said this was some of the best professional makeup services they've had. The team was all around sweet, agreeable, and made our wedding day very fun. Would book them again in a heartbeat, and recommend them to anyone!
