Had To Be There


HTBT Philosophy

We all have those stories where we're not able to put into words just how incredible, or hilarious, or touching that memory was, and can only end our efforts by saying "I'm telling you - ya just had to be there!" It was from those moments that HTBT was born.

Had To Be There wants to help create and preserve those stories. Whether it’s your grandma’s 90th birthday, your college roommate’s bridal shower, your kids’ varsity sports banquet, or that big family vacation - HTBT has you covered. From planning to execution through commemorative DVD, we’re your one-stop shop!
