I never really mentioned it on my blog, but I recently became an official member of the Old Married Lady Club (YAY!). The experience of planning and executing a wedding was simultaneously the best experience ever and the hardest job I've ever had. Basically, leading up to the Wedding, I would set aside some time everyday for planning. The process went a little something like this:
HOORAY I'M GETTING MARRIED!
PINTEREST IS SO AWESOME!
I WANT ALL THESE PRETTY THINGS!
I'M GOING TO MAKE ALL THESE PRETTY THINGS BY HAND!
TOO MANY DETAILS!
Seriously, this happened everyday.
The one detail that I already had worked out before I even was engaged was who was going to film my wedding day. My buddy and all around amazing moving picture maker, the incredible and infamous Mr. Justin Browne.
Justin Browne and I literally ran into each other while scrambling to capture our mutual friends wedding. They had asked me to be the photographer, and asked Justin to be the videographer. We quickly worked out a system on who was going to stand where to get whatever images they needed...even before we introduced ourselves. At the reception, we formally met and quickly fell into Camera Nerd mode speaking in millimeters and shutter speeds, to the embarrassment of our significant others. In other words, we became fast friends.
We were the luckiest people in the world to have him capture our wedding day. Because we were friends prior to the actual day, I was totally comfortable having him in close proximity all day long. I'm absolutely over the moon about how the final products came out and I have him to thank for giving us the present of being able to re-live our day over and over again.
Here's the trailer to the video...
and here's a longer version (because he's awesome)...
A giant THANK YOU to Justin and his amazing video abilities. We are lucky to know you.
