When this video landed in my inbox I knew from the first second of watching it that I’d feature it. Why? The Power Of Love baby! The hubby as I walked back up the aisle to this tune on our wedding day so not only did it bring all those lovely weddingyfeelings back for me, but it’s just a damn good song. We chose it for our own wedding as my favourite film of all time is Back to The Future, and I think Courtney & David’s wedding has this same feel of retro gorgeousness. Isn’t her dress just divine? be sure to watch the video to the end or the dramatic and surprising finale…what luck to catch that on film.
I love sharing wedding videos, especially ones with a twist and this shoot by Steve of Studio+Z Films.
The Bride and Groom told their guests they were having a destination wedding in Florida on July 4th, and wanted their friends and family to come to a pre wedding celebration on June 27th. What the guests didn’t know is that they were actually getting married that night. Daphne, the Bride asked Steve to produce a film to entertain the guests and He created this concept. Basically, while this film is playing, the Bride and Groom snuck behind the huge projection screen and when the film ended, the screen rose up to reveal them standing there with a priest actually getting married. Steve told me that the place went absolutely nuts and they actually showed the film a few more times that night!
What a fun, original and rock n roll idea…and after watching this film I think you’ll agree ths actual video is second to none in it’s style, sass and gorgeousness!
A huge thank you to Steve for sharing this wonderful film with me.
photographs by Dan of Chennergy (who shot their wedding for free!) but decided to not share them straight away as I assumed photography as fantastic as this would pop up on all the wedding blogs. However it seems that maybe everybody else had the same idea as me, and while I’ve seen their video everywhere I look their photographs seem to have fallen to the wayside maybe just a little bit. That, my friends, is a travesty of utmost proportions. These must be seen and adored. Enjoy and be sure to check out Dana’s blog for all the juicy details.
I’ve got another double whammy for you – this time the same couple but two sessions…their engagements and wedding photographs are so good I have to share both!
Starting with the engagement session by You Can’t Be Serious. Holy Moly I love these! Jess & Dana are one of those couples you just want to be aren’t they?! Effortlessly cool and ooh thereis even a cute little video! Photographer Hailey Bartholonew is also a Videographer, so if you’re looking for a multi talented super rock n roll photographer in Australia she is definitely worth a look!
Hang on tight for their wedding photographs, they are gonna blow you away!
If you plan to get married on the 4th July, then what other theme could you possibly choose? Christine & Cole went for a glorious red, white and blue colour scheme with vintage, retro touches. The whole day has been perfectly captured by the wonderfully vibrant photography of Michelle Warren and the gorgeously vintage super 8 film of Lola Film + Video.
If I was American I’d be feeling all partrotic right about now…
Thanks to Michelle for sending me both! wonderful…
So I thought I was done blogging for the day then BAM! Michael of The Flash Dance just posted the Broke Ass Bride’s wedding photographs and the most awesome video I have EVER seen in my life. Seriously, AMAZING!
