Love Never Ends - Hybrid Wedding
Host a virtual wedding and broadcast your nuptials to friends and family. That’s what this couple did at one of our venues through a simple internet connection and Facebook Live. We provided the technology and strong network connection to keep them connected to their loved ones.
Rather than postpone their May 9, 2020 nuptials, a soon-to-be-married couple contacted our hotel partners at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort about our virtual wedding options. With a limited number of guests willing (or allowed) to travel, the couple explored their livestreaming options with our in-venue Encore team.
The in-house team got to work helping them shift their in-person wedding to a virtual option that they could link out to their family and friends. The couple chose to broadcast our live recording through Facebook Live where they could still use their wedding hashtag and share all of Facebook’s features with their friends and family.
The couple were so happy they could carry on with their “minimony” – a small, socially-distanced wedding ceremony – instead of their original in-person gathering. Providing onsite assistance and audiovisual equipment (camera with live recording, sound system, mics, cradlepoint hotspot) was a great way to help the new couple share the event with their loved ones.
