WOW! What a fantastic experience I had with “I do Stream”! It was about a month before our wedding and my sister found out that she would not be able to attend our wedding due to complications with her pregnancy. When she told me, we were devastated but she obviously had to do what was best for her child.
After the news passed and the reality set in that my sister was definitely not attending the wedding the wheels in my head began to turn. I had to a figure out a way to somehow have my sister still be apart of the wedding. The first thing that came to mind was streaming the wedding, but I had no idea where to start so I Googled “wedding, streaming and Connecticut” and “I do Stream” came up and I called. Philip Ly answered the phone and the rest is history!
He listened to my predicament and helped me every step of the way from an explanation of how the product worked, technical questions that I had from setting up my equipment and making sure to test everything before the big day since I had a good friend, operate my wife’s laptop and my best man’s camcorder.
We tested the entire setup the day before the wedding during the rehearsal dinner. I let I do Stream know what time I wanted to test and they gave me a couple hours to test the setup and make sure my sister and her husband could also see and hear us since she was at the hospital on bed rest. We were in Trumbull, CT and she was at Yale New Haven Hospital, CT.
On our wedding day, I set up the laptop and camera up on a media cart and gave my friend the quick tutorial on the software, which was very easy to use, and the camera. After that, we called “I Do Stream” to let them know we were ready to go and made sure everything was 100%. I do Stream’s customer service was phenomenal; as an example they asked for my friend’s cell phone so that they could call him if there were any problems with the stream (since they are watching it live as well!) There was one drop out with the stream, but since they were watching it live they immediately called my friend and got the stream back online!
Our wedding day was one of the best days of our lives and one of the highlights of the day was having my sister and her husband be a part of it using “I do Stream” from the hospital. By the way, my sister had a health baby girl! Thanks I Do Stream for a great experience and a wonderful memory!

Did the videographer capture all important wedding moments? Candids? Interviews? yes
Favorite part of the wedding video? Anything beyond ceremony & reception? The wedding was in Florida, and we had family in the Phillpines and Scotland who could not make it, especially the grooms Mother and sisters who became ill at the last minute and missed the chance to attend, so it was important for us to somehow include them in the wedding. We were able to do that through IDoStream webcast, they really went out of their way to ensure we had a working video on the day and their outstanding service really helped.
How did the videographer avoid disrupting the day? We had a family member operate the video.

Favorite part of the wedding video? Anything beyond ceremony & reception? I Do Stream's service enabled me to have family, cousins, aunts and uncles who are in Germany and Sweden to watch me get married here in the states. We used our own camcorder and laptop computer and I Do Stream made it real easy with step by step instructions. After the wedding ceremony I was able to chat with my relatives overseas using the chat application. I was also talking into the camera which felt funny at first.
How did the videographer avoid disrupting the day? I Do Stream support personnel were excellent. They helped us do the test broadcast and once we got the hang of it, it was real easy using their software.
Did the videographer capture all important wedding moments? Candids? Interviews? The whole live webcast is available for replay as on-demand for the next 30 days. I was able to watch my wedding ceremony the next day with my new hubby which was wonderful.
