Videography: The Vintage Edge of Super 8mm Film

8mm Wedding Still Shot

While there are mass amounts of decisions to make before wedding day, an important decision for some is to have a way to reminisce their wedding day and its special nuances.  Thus, many brides and grooms choose to have a videographer(s) to capture the wedding ceremony and reception–even interviews from the bride, groom, family and friends before the big day.

An emerging creative technique in some engagement videos and wedding day videos has been the use of Super 8mm film.  My first thought when I think of this type of film is the old home movies that were made and played on a projector.  The videos I see now with Super 8mm film are beautifully crafted, incorporating the nostalgic feel of the mid -1900′s, with a modern edge of vintage glam...

How To Choose Your Flower Girl and Ring Bearer

Flower GirlA wedding party consists usually of the bride and groom, their parents, groomsmen, bridesmaids, attendants and sometimes flower girls and ring bearers. When making the decision on having flower girls and ring bearers in your wedding, there are several factors to consider.

The first factor involves actually having a family member or friend that has children.  If you don’t know of anyone with children, then the decision about having children in the wedding has already been made. Please note:  just because you may not have family or friends with children early in your engagement, this may change over the course of your engagement.  So, if your heart is set on flower girls and ring bearers keep the option open...

A List Of Important Accessories For The Bride

bridal-accessoriesAlthough a bride’s wedding dress (or dresses, for some) usually takes center stage as an important decision, the accessories a bride chooses is also a critical decision. The bridal accessories can really accentuate or overwhelm a wedding dress, so it is essential for some brides to carefully choose what compliments her dress.

Thus, it is important a bride define her own personal style, as she may want more dazzling “bling” to add to her dress, but must realize she will hear more “ka-ching!”Alternatively, a bride may gravitate toward simplicity and forego most accessories, which can also add to a breeze of elegance and timeless sophistication.

Below is a list of accessories for the bride to think about for wedding day, but is not all-inclusive:

  • Earrings
  • Necklace
  • Bracelet

Include Splashes of Brights at Your Summer Wedding!

Hello Readers!

Once upon a time (not very long ago), weddings were all about terrible shades of pale colors, horrible bridesmaid dresses, and awful-tasting cake. Thankfully, those days are behind us, and sophisticated brides are showing off their personal style with gorgeous weddings, stunning gowns, and yes, the cake tastes pretty darn good, too.

ColorWhile I love the refined elegance of cream, white or silver at a wedding, there’s something extra happy about weddings that show bright punches of bright colors. I love it when the bridesmaids are decked out in hot fuchsia, cakes trimmed with lime green make me grin from ear to ear, and there’s a definite funky attitude from the brides who walk down the aisle with hits of bright aqua or yellow...

Wedding Etiquette: “Do I REALLY Have to Tip?”

Hello Brides and Grooms!

Spending Even More MoneyPiggy

You have probably already shelled out a small fortune in your wedding already, and the thought of having to tip someone before/during/after the wedding could cause you even more angst.

When I first thought about tipping my wedding vendors, I scoffed.  I mean, are they seriously not getting paid enough as it is?

The closer wedding day came, the more that I wanted my wedding vendors to really collaborate with my husband and me, I had a change of heart.

Looking For Change

How did I change my behavior and thought surrounding this subject?

Well, I began thinking about all the services I tip for: getting a haircut and highlights, mani/pedis, massages, car wash, at restaurants, if our local barista at Starbucks makes a really good coffee, etc.
