    Yes! We successfully live streamed our wedding 2 weeks ago using EventLive. I would highly recommend! Pros: very great quality video, able to send link to guests to stream - no downloading apps or creating accounts, sent reminder emails to guests, guests could leave a comment in our virtual guest book that I downloaded after the wedding, website that showed the live stream provided a link to our registry, the live stream was so easy to start and stop in the app on our phone and the video saved directly to our camera roll so you can rewatch it and share it. We watched it back the night of our wedding! We had a tripod and streamed from our iPhone and bought a wind muffler to attach to the phone since the ceremony was outside. Everyone was so complementary about it. Only con was that it cost $40 but it was so worth it!

    That sounds awesome! Do you know if it’s possible to have multiple phones, like for multiple angles?

    That’s a good question! I am trying to think about how that would work and I don’t think it would since it is started and played from the app on one phone. We just had to set it up so that you could see everything from one angle (attached screenshot from video). If you wanted multiple angles or anything more professional I would recommend a videographer. But I’m sure you can reach out to their customer service to ask! I had a question and they were very responsive! Live stream wedding 1

    We are getting married next week and plan on live streaming it over zoom. My sister will be the host from home helping everyone get set up and will be doing a screen recording of it. A family friend will be holding the phone filming it. You can have multiple phones with different angles on zoom you just need a host who is willing to pick the video to be up at the moment and then grab the other angle to be at the forefront.

    I did reach out to them, and while they don’t do multi screen they did give me some other websites that might. Thank you, that looks like a beautiful ceremony!

    I was planning in live streaming my wedding but I did a test run and didn't get great service at the venue. So I decided to just have my aunt record with my camera that shoots HD videos. The morning after the wedding I uploaded the video to youtube as an unlisted video and shared the link on my facebook and sent it to guests with out social media. I was also able to make DVD copies for my elderly family who cant used a phone a computer. Everyone loved having the nice clear video instead of a laggy poor quality video.

    I'm also using Facebook live! I just set up a private facebook event and invited all our families and friends. One of my co-workers will be in charge of doing the filming, so hoping it goes well! I also hired a videographer just in case though haha. Getting married in 10 days!

    The venue my ceremony was at did the live streaming for us.

    A few comments were made that the music over powered what we were saying & the image wasn't clear.

    From those, my suggestions would be make sure the camera is not right by any speaker and good wifi! lol

    I used Lovecast their app was very easy to use. The quality was crystal clear and our guest had good things to say about the app. All they had to do was click a link and they were there! I loved that the recording was automatically saved and that guests could chat us cute things. I highly recommend this app!

    Thanks for mentioning that Jessica. I had seen their app, but couldn't find any too many review online. And congrats on your wedding Smiley laugh

    Hi Annabel - sorry for the late reply! I was on the same boat as you. I was skeptical about using them, to be honest. Luckily, a gal who I found on a similar thread was able to share her experience with me and videos from her wedding. Here is the link she shared with me:
    https://event.lovecastapp.com/event/m/daryl-charmaine
    Her wedding looked beautiful, but what sold me was the crystal video quality. I did a dry run with Lovecast parallel to Zoom and Lovecast had a better video quality. I hope this helps.
