Alright friends! Here it is. The draft that took me entirely too long because I was unsure of what I wanted to do, but I think that I finally figured it out! As most of you know, my topic this semester is based upon an imaginary wedding venue, that I someday hope to own. Owning a wedding venue has been a dream of mine for many years, and most importantly, I’ve always wanted to have a “one-stop shop” where brides can come, drink a mimosa, walk around and just feel relieved knowing that everything is in one place. The way I see it, is that we will take care of it for you, from floral, to booking the DJ, photographer and more. Here at Veiled with Love, we got your back, and we will most definitely make sure you feel the love on your wedding day.
My research consisted of watching a lot of interview videos, I considered a promotional video, but realized that I didn’t like the way that my voice sounded, I then came across podcasts and I really liked the casual feel for them. For this particular project, I decided to do my audio story interviewing someone who has been through the wedding process already. I wanted to highlight the fact that, planning weddings are stressful. This leads back to my point on why it’s beneficial to have a wedding venue that can take that stress off your shoulders for you. I asked my friend a few questions about things that she absolutely loved about her wedding day, the stressors, and what she would have done differently. Now, I know podcasts are usually longer, but for this particular project I thought it would be cool to do a “sneak peek” of the podcast. Something to gain my audience’s attention, and then get them to watch the full podcast on my website. This full podcast would include wedding advice, do’s and don’ts, based on my friend’s responses. These are types of things that would be helpful for brides as they are planning their own wedding, being able to get this advice from your venue alone and hear from those who have already been through it, there’s a lot of benefit in that alone.
My “sneak peek” interview podcast is a little over a minute long. I didn’t want to give too much detail to where my audience wouldn’t want to listen to the whole thing, so I decided on just a little snippet. I ended up cutting out a few of the awkward pauses and blending them in and I was contemplating on putting in background music, and I ended up doing it. It seemed like it was missing something without the music, and it was a little awkward. I ended up using “Over the Rainbow” by the Piano Guys. Full disclosure, I’m actually obsessed with a lot of their songs, so I had already bought this one a few years ago on iTunes, and I think it worked well for this project.
I’ll admit, this one was a little bit harder for me than the others. I would love to hear any feedback that you have! Thanks for reading along and stay tuned for the final project in the coming weeks.
