BlushDrop Wedding Video, a new tech startup, founded by Rick Dolishny will pitch to the Dragon’s this April, and will potentially air on CBC in the fall. BlushDrop, the startup that gives newlyweds control over their wedding video costs and the memories they cherish, won Bears’ Lair in 2016.
“This is a dream come true, not just for me, but for the entire BlushDrop team,” says Dolishny. “Brides crave a way to leverage technology to help them with their wedding planning. Just look at the success of social media like Pinterest and Instagram,” he said. “BlushDrop makes a modern wedding a success by preserving video in a thoughtful way.”
The wedding video platform allows users to drag and drop various video footage into an interface that is fun and easy to use. Then, the BlushDrop team will create a beautifully edited movie from the content. The BlushDrop package is purchased online by the bride and groom, or as a gift from friends and family.
BlushDrop is compatible with Apple and Android devices, which includes safe and secure storage of unlimited video content, and a direct connection to a professional video editing team.
BlushDrop won first place the Innovation Stream in Peterborough’s 2016 Bears’ Lair competition and has been featured in various bridal shows. Being in the wedding video business for twenty years, Dolishny created BlushDrop as a solution to a common problem in wedding videography.
“With traditional full-service wedding videography, there are two reasons I had to turn away 70% of my potential customers,” says Dolishny. “Local videographers like us are either sold out, or we’re too expensive. BlushDrop never sells out, and starts at just a few hundred dollars.”
On average, wedding costs have peaked over $40,000, and videography alone can cost $3000 and up, causing very expensive weddings for 2.3 million newlyweds every year.
BlushDrop customers span as far as the Middle East, Brazil, Mexico and all across America.
“We just edited a honeymoon from Antarctica, with video shot on smartphones, of course,” recalled Dolishny. “There’s no wedding video like a BlushDrop!”
