When A Video Memories began in 1981, its videography team strived to create something special for each wedding it covered. After ceremonies, they'd swiftly cut together a 60-photo montage with footage from that morning's nuptials, and then screen the finished product during dinner that night. These days, Final Cut Pro expedites A Video Memories' editing process, while cameras now capture every vow and kiss with HD crispness. A Video Memories' crew still assembles montages, though its services have since expanded to include transferring film onto DVDs and assembling original commercials for local businesses.

Studio 3 Productions documents and enhances weddings with an arsenal of services that includes photography, videography, DJing, and lighting. A team of photographers and videographers carefully documents each wedding-day tradition, from the exchange of rings to the firing of the flower girl out of a cannon, producing keepsakes that range from simple scrapbooks to high-tech films replete with montages and other special effects. Meanwhile, the company’s LED lighting can add pizzazz to receptions, with curious customers able to view a small-scale simulation in advance at the studio.
Alternatively, portrait sessions at Studio 3’s studio or on location capture authentic flashes of subjects’ personalities as they pose solo, with loved ones, or with pets. After shoots, the studio’s framing services accent prints, equipping subjects with a high-quality wall decoration to replace their collection of unpaid parking tickets.
In a two-performance exhibition of sweeping set pieces geared toward enchanting children and adults alike, Salt Creek Ballet presents selections from The Sleeping Beauty with special visits from characters such as Little Red Riding Hood and Puss 'n Boots. The folkloric superstars are attending the wedding of Princess Aurora, who has just emerged from her bed after years of attempting to follow up Pet Sounds. For these evenings of fantasy, the company does a pas de deux with guest artists Maria Mosina and Alexei Tyukov, principals of the Colorado Ballet. An all-ages academy of kinetics since 1985, Salt Creek Ballet's alums have gone on to grace the stages of the Joffrey Ballet, Boston Ballet, Nevada Ballet Theatre, Radio City Music Hall, and Cirque du Soleil.
