{Our Wedding Video}

Yes, you read that right. And yes, our wedding was over two years ago... 
As much as I wanted a professional videographer at our wedding it just wasn't in the budget.
I knew I had to have at least some footage of our day, so we had two FlipShare cameras floating around all day, capturing who knew what. 
At the end of the wedding I was just happy to get both cameras back in one piece!
It was so fun to see what video had been taken. Some of it touching, some of it downright hilarious.
So, what do you do with 50+ little videos taken throughout your wedding day? 
Well, probably nothing, despite your best intentions.
Until a great friend (and bridesmaid) decides she wants to help you make them something special. 
I knew it was going to be a huge undertaking, and when the finished product hit my inbox yesterday I squealed with excitement and joy!
Jena - a talented graphic designer - took a jumbled mess of home videos and made them into a video that makes me laugh and cry every time I've watched it (yes, I've already watched it more than a few times!).
We will never be able to express our gratitude for such a personal and special gift. I know how much work this took and it is something we will cherish forever and ever!

So without further ado... Our wedding video!

  7. lovely : )

    I am inspired to do the same now! We have bits and pieces of video, but I never thought of putting them with music and photos like this. Just beautiful.

    Especially love the music! I walked down the aisle to acoustic guitar "here comes the sun" and now i cry every time I hear it. : )

  11. That is really beautiful! You were (are) gorgeous! And I am sure this video no matter how professional or unprofessional it may be shot, will always be the perfect remembrance of that beautiful day! :) I saw the video from our wedding this year around 7 times (it's around 3 hours), but I don't think I will ever have enough of it! It just takes me back there, to that special day and it is a wonderful feeling!
