Imagine the guests at the beginning of the reception….the band introduces the bridal party….everyone is anxious. The audience expects them to announce the new bride and groom....but as the anticipation grows the lights dim instead, and the bandleader announces, “would everyone please bring their attention to the silver screen.”
What comes next is a short emotional story of the couple talking about how they met and fell in love…the real beginning of the wedding story. As they site in awe the crowd is treated to a feast of dating photos and the engagement story too.
The screen fades out, the lights come up, and the band kicks it into high gear, and the newlyweds are introduced! Now that is a totally magnificent way to start your party off! We know what everyone will be talking about.
Often planned as a surprise to parents, (and a nice way to thank them as well) this highlight film also appears as on your wedding dvds. Many couples have told me that they plan to share these moments with their future children, letting the video tell the story.
A wonderful heirloom or gift.
To be honest, couples tell me this is the most fun they have while planning the wedding. Instead of making decisions about colors and courses, they get to explain why they love each other. We’ve included careers and hobbies into the clip.
To tell your story, please call us to schedule a filming date. This should only take a 1/2 day and should be scheduled at least 2 months before your date. And I handle all of the details too, from the screen, projector, and playback.
