Here’s the highlight video from Kacie & Don’s wedding and reception at the Omni Severin Hotel on 3/24/07. Thanks again to photographers Stacy and Mary and the Omni’s Amanda Coffey, each of whom referred the wedding to me and scored some cameos in the clip. The widescreen HD cameras allowed me to capture some cool shots that I might not have managed otherwise. (Note: the HD resolution will not be visible on the web version of this video.)
The clients did not have a song preference, so I wanted to try one that I had never used before, preferably something new and fresh. After wracking my brain to come up with a good fit, I remembered a song from the movie “Meet the Robinsons,” which I took the boys to see last weekend. It was a cute, clever and twisty flick that looked awesome in 3D, but otherwise didn’t tug at the heartstrings much. That is, until its closing epilogue, set to this song, finally gave me a lump in the throat. It’s a song about possibilities and moving forward, which seemed appropriate.
UPDATE (4/13/07) I just got a very nice e-mail from Dan Rawlins, the father of the bride: “Kacie e-mailed the link to your website, and I just viewed your highlights video. Having been jaded and deluded by enduring other wedding videos I’ve seen, I clicked the play button with low expectations for the whole genre. I had no idea that 3 1/2 minutes of video could so perfectly capture the feel of a special day. Great work!”
UPDATE (4/17/07) Just got this e-mail from Kacie: “We’ve been sharing it with friends and family and everyone has been completely amazed at the quality of your product. The video truly captured the essence of the day. We can’t thank you enough!” Glad you enjoyed it, Kacie, and thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!
