Today’s Wedding Wednesday post is very near and dear to our hearts. One thing I so desperately wanted to include in our wedding was a videographer. I know that may seem excessive to some people, but let me tell you–there are few things I love more in this world more than a good movie trailer. Matt can attest that I will get REAL RICK if I don’t get to the theater in time to see the previews. I just love the way all the key moments of a movie are tied together with some awesome music playing in the background. Most of the time, I find the trailer to be better than the movie itself.
Anyway, in the midst of wedding planning I started checking out videographers and their work. Most videographers (the good ones, anyway) create a highlight video that is basically edited like a movie trailer. Just like that, I was in love. I couldn’t imagine a more magical way to rehash our special day than by watching all of the special moments built into a three minute, emotionally packed video.
Unfortunately, most videographers were wayyyy out of our budget, unless we wanted to pay someone to stay in one spot with a camera the entire night. Then, one day, I had a stroke of brilliance (simliar to most of my great wedding planning moments) and contacted a girl I went to summer camp with back in the day. She had experience in producing films, and she and her partner were willing to record and edit our wedding for a reasonable price.
MAJOR THANKS to Brittany and her partner, Jonathan. They did an awesome job and we now have this beautiful video to look back on all the years ahead.
