Brides and grooms rode in complimentary limos and trolleys around Anna Maria Island to explore unique wedding & reception venues. Mother’s of the bride met with qualified wedding vendors in person to discuss wedding plans. They asked questions, face to face, with videographers, photographers, DJ’s and wedding officiants from Sarasota & Bradenton. Thank you for visiting us at the AMI Chamber of Commerce to view our wedding videos and ask about videography at the Visions Unlimited Video Production booth. Did you sample different cakes and drink options for cocktail hour? This “hands on” wedding festival was all about getting the info you need and booking the vendors your like. Wedding vendors offered specials for festival attendants; and I’m happy to extend Wedding Video Bridal Show Specials if you ask. We have some great bargains. Over $10,000 prizes were given away, including some amazing gift baskets at our “Mock Sunset Beach Wedding” at the Sandbar Restaurant. Bridal make up and hair was by Body & Sol Spa and Wellness, Island Wellness and A Victorian Bride. Flowers & bouquets for the Mock Wedding were provided by: Flower Girls of Sarasota.
Thank you to those of you who came to see us in person. We had a great time! For more info on our next Wedding Festival, look for updates soon at: http://www.amiweddingfestival.com/ (Give us a little time to recover from the Best Anna Maria Island Wedding Festival ever!)

Wow, wow, wow! We loved the video! You did an amazing job. When we were planning the wedding we had to really think about getting a video done because everything that goes into a wedding is costly. Let me tell you, every bride should have a wedding video as terrific as mine. Worth every penny and brought back so many memories we can now have forever. We are now able to remember even the smallest detail because we have this beautiful video. Thank you so much, you did a great job and we are so happy that we found you. Absolutely you may use whatever we have said, anyway we can help you. I enjoyed this video more than I enjoyed our pictures. You miss out on seeing so many things when you are the bride, like the bridesmaids walking in, the groomsmen walking in, and even the brides own entrance you cannot see until you have the video. THANKS A MILLION!
~Christie, a happy bride from Bradenton, Florida
We absolutely loved the video. The b&w Freeze frames at
the end are great too! It was better than I could have imagined.

Just wanted to let you know that the wedding was perfect and you were a big part of it! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and the montage was a huge hit!! So many people have asked me who did it and everyone thought your professionalism was to be commended. I hope you loved filming that day because it was an absolutely magical day, we had soooo much fun and none of us will ever forget it. I’m awfully glad it’s on DVD because this is one movie I won’t mind seeing more than once! Thanks again for a job well done and for your calmness and professionalism, I will recommend you often!
See you soon,

Sally and I received the video you created of our daughter’s wedding. Your results were above and beyond our expectations, far more professional than either of us anticipated. The music, the clarity, and the transition from one scene to another, was expertly done. As we watched, we were most impressed with the visual effects from different viewpoints of the event, especially the close-ups. Several times I asked Sally how many cameras were operating. You did all the filming in a most unobtrusive, discreet manner.

Hi Leslie – I just got the DVDs from my Mom and wanted to tell you how much we love them! Thank you so much for everything! They came out beautifully and we are absolutely thrilled with them. Thanks again and it was wonderful to work with you!
All the best,
Puja from Englewood, Florida (Ritz-Carlton ballroom wedding & reception)
We did get the video in time for Valentine’s Day. It was a huge hit with not only Megan, but also her parents. It was constructed beautifully to show exactly what I was hoping for and so much more. It was enough to make both of her parents tear up!!! You did an absolutely amazing job incorporating the two songs that I provided into the video as well as mixing in some of the live audio that you recorded. The transitioning slides were also a feature that went well above and beyond what I had ever imagined.
Thank you again for such a magnificently sculpted work of art that we can call our proposal video. I am positive that it will be a cherished keepsake for the rest of our days!
I look forward to keeping in contact with you and I can only hope that it will work out for you to also capture the magical moments of our wedding.
It would be a true blessing to be able to share that with you as well. I
will send another email within the week letting you know what option we would be most interested in.
Sincerely and gratefully,
Brian Rolfs (Surprise Engagement and Love Story Montage, filmed during sunset at Sharkstooth Beach in Venice, Florida)
I just have to write to tell you how much we LOVE our wedding video 🙂
The video from our Siesta Key wedding is just so terrific! There are so many special moments – Alexa and Jordan look precious, and there are captions of Les’s boys that are really special to us. I love how you captured so many cute things – we expecially love the ending with the music and collage of shots. Simply perfect!
Thanks for more than a job well done….. a job that will hold many memories for us for years to come. If I can ever help with a referral, please let me know.

I wanted to let you know that the video turned out beautifully, just as I hoped it would. I know you had metioned that you wanted to know that I like about it and if there was anything that I didn’t like about it.. I LOVED every part of it!!!! The only thing I wish we had done was , hired you to stay longer.. At the time our budget didn’t allow us to. Thank you for a wonderful memory that we can enjoy!!! Everytime we watch it,, it makes me want to go back to Anna Maria Island. We can’t wait for next year. My little one, Jada she loves to watch the video.
Thanks Again for everything.

I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful experience. It was truly a pleasure working with you. You are professional and so kind. Is there any where I can leave you comments? If so, please let me know, I would be happy to do so. As I told you previously, once the wedding was over with Sanaa did not want to have anything to do with us, she was friendly until midnight the day of our wedding. We greatly appreciate how easy you have been to work with and you have always told me I could call anytime. It does make a huge difference working with people like yourself. I cannot wait to watch the DVD. I will always keep you in mind and will refer anyone that I can to you. Steve and I are so happy we decided to have our wedding taped. What a great investment! Thank you again for always being so kind and easy going. When I didn’t know where to go for our cake, you left the door for me to call at any time. So, your references and suggestions meant a lot to us, as well. I want you to know that nobody else, except the harpist, Bonnie, told us we could call if we ever had any questions or needed help with anything. And, as you know, many many people are involved and hired in the making of a wedding. Thank you, you are great!

Just wanted to thank you again for the great work!!!! 🙂

From : Kimberly Manooshian
(Married at 1st Baptist on Main and LBK Harbourside reception)
Here is my testimonial: My husband and I had all of our plan in order for our wedding about a month before our big day.
Our wedding coordinator ask if we had considered having our wedding videotaped and to be honest I was a little hesitant. After all we were spending more money than we had originally planned because our guest list was getting bigger and bigger.
To make a long story short… I can not imagine NOT having a video of OUR day.
I have watched our video at least 20 times…no kidding!
I love everything Leslie did to capture our special day!
If I had to choose, I would do without something else in order
to have Leslie capture our special day on video!
~George & Kimberly Manooshian, Sarasota bride & groom
Dear Leslie & Mark, I appreciate the way you captured the happiness of Jenni and Michael’s wedding day. I can’t stop smiling as I watch the video. It takes me back to the moment and I am thankful to be able to re-experience their wedding again and again. Seeing the happiness on our daughter’s face is priceless for her dad and I. Thank you again for taking such caring efforts to create the video. ~Sue Nierstheimer, Mother-of-the-Bride, Englewood Beach, FL
Leslie captured our special day with great expertise. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she even stayed for an extra hour in order encapsulate a beautiful sunset. She was unobtrusive throughout our wedding and would highly recommend using her.

Leslie with Visions Unlimited did a wonderful job for our wedding day. She worked well with our photographer Dara Caudill with Island Photography, which made the day much less stressful! Though I have not seen the video yet, she was so friendly and kind to us and has been in constant contact with us since we booked her, both by email and by phone. Highly recommended for beach weddings!

Thank God for Visions Unlimited!!!! I was in another world on my wedding day and don’t remember half of the special moments we had. But….it was all on video! They were so professional, I didn’t even realize they were there. They captured every important moment on our wedding day. I just received the video and watched it about 8 times already. The time and effort put into with the background music, slow motion at some points, and the accent photos were just amazing! EXCELLENT COMPANY!!!!

Reception at Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club)
I recently used Visions Unlimited to create a wedding video for a friend of mine as a gift. I could not have been more pleased with Leslie’s professionalism and with the finished product. She was quick to respond to my questions, she called me with regular reports of the progress of the video, and the finished product was absolutely beautiful. In this unique situation where Leslie had never even met the bride and groom, she was able to bring out their personalities perfectly. The bride was thrilled with the video. Thank you Leslie!!!

I just wanted to let you know that we saw the video and it AMAZING! We honestly could not have asked for more. You included every moment that we wanted and then some. We absolutely love it. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, what a wonderful keepsake!

Hi Leslie –
Received our wedding video yesterday. We want to say “thanks” again for your efforts. You’ve given us something to treasure for a very, very, very, very long time.

It was fun and inspiring seeing you in action last weekend at the Ritz. You are amazing — so professional, you are everywhere, yet look like you are really enjoying yourself. Hope I’ll get to see the final product sometime. I would imagine that whole thing was quite a challenge.
And your montage of fotos was beautiful! Just the right touches of effects and timing.

Thank you so much for the video and Christmas ornament. The video is so well done and you captured so many memories for us! We have really enjoyed watching it. The ornament is a perfect addition to our 1st Christmas tree. It was very thoughtful of you.
