Our Wedding VIDEO Trailer!!! So exciting!

Woo-hoo!!!  I am *dying* right now because this weekend, Gary from Video Keepsakes of Beverly Hills (our amazing, talented and oh so patient videographer who dealt so graciously with me) has shared a video trailer with me to share with all of you!!! 

I knew Gary wouldn't let me down.  And the coolest thing?  In just this 1 minute and 30 seconds of video I was able to see so many things that I didn't remember from the day.  He got shots I really wanted and he and his amazing team (we totally loved you, Jamie!) did a rockstar job of shooting and editing everything.  And on top of it all, he told me that he is almost done with the entire video (which can typically take up to 3 months with all the video footage they shot).  So I will really be able to get some fun recaps going with video to show along the way!!!

But for now, without further ado, here is what we get to see as a sneak preview!!!




Is it possible to be obsessed with something to where you can't watch it enough?  Because I am totally obsessed with this until we get the final full version soon.  :)

I absolutely *love* my necklace and shoes in these shots (especially where you see my feet walking and then the shoes hanging on the trellis).  The sun was shining and the tiger was on the prowl...the lighting is just gorgeous.

I was totally crying when I watched this because the words you hear me speak are from the letter that I read to Mr Fix It at the ceremony...but the words he is speaking are from the personal interview that our videographer did with each of us alone...so this was the first time I'd heard them.  (And of course, I don't remember anything from our ceremony so hearing me say these words to him just brought a wave of emotions over me.)  But what really brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it is the very end where Mr Fix It says "Let's get married."  It's like he's proposing to me all over again!  :)

My favorite part of the whole trailer is me walking across the bridge to Mr Fix It where Jamie (the cameraman) is following me from behind. 

The part where Mr Fix It is laughing and throws his head back is either during the video I created that played at the ceremony before I walked down the aisle OR it's right when he saw his nephew (one of the 4 ring bearers) carrying my special surprise sign down the aisle (more to come in a future recap). 

Now I am ever so anxious to get the video back!  And my photographer told me my disc of pictures should be here any day now!!!  So lots more to share very soon!

Your wedding has officially brought me to tears! I'm so glad I didn't put eye makeup on today or it'd be bad!!

I am sending this to my videographer RIGHT NOW so he can see exactly what I want. Awesome.

SO EXCITED! So happy for you!!!

Aww, you two look like movie stars! And I LOVE the shot of your shoes as you're walking, and the white tiger too. Now you are making me want a wedding video when I was convinced we did not need one. Hmmmm....

So much emotion in just 1.5 minutes!! Seeing bits of your wedding in motions really shows the joy of the day. Can't wait to see more.

I LOVE IT!! It really came out beautifully and you look great!

WOW! Stacey, your trailer is amazing, and I absolutely love the voiceovers that he worked in! I’m so excited to see more! I must say, now that our wedding is next week (OMG!), I’m starting to regret that we didn’t splurge on a more inclusive video package. We’re basically going to be getting rough footage from our first look, ceremony and reception. I figure I can hopefully hire someone to create a well-edited video afterward, but I guess I’ll miss out on the magic that you felt in seeing your trailer and in sharing it with others.

I got goosebumps, it's lovely!

My MAC came with IDVD and IMOVIE and i've made a few home videos. We didn't go with a pro because i'm hoping to be able to make my own. I know it won't come close to yours but i'm at least hoping to capture the love and beauty of yours. It looks awesome!

Salt said...

I can't get over how gorgeous you look!

Amberdawn said...

My Dream Ring said...

I'm freakin crying over here!!!!! So great, can't wait to see the rest :)

Mrs T said...

What ever this guy charged you - WORTH EVERY PENNY. I am blown away by how wonderful this is.

The words over the top - you taped them separately? When I first watched it I thought it was lifted from your ceremony footage?

Born to be Mrs. Beever said...

Thanks, everyone! I am so in love with it!

Mrs T: The words I am speaking are from our ceremony and a letter I read to Mr Fix It...the words he is saying are from a personal message that the videographer had him share before our ceremony. :)

Kristy said...

oh my goodness - i'm tearing up - your vows are so sweet! and i didnt think it possible but you are even more gorgeous in living breathing motion - what a treasure!!

Gracie said...

Aww that's beautiful! I'm sure the whole video will be amazing and it will be a wonderful memory that you can keep.

We actually bought really cheap tickets and the airline doesn't refund them because of the cheapness...if that makes sense. And yay that you were in Brisbane for a bit. It's a shame it was raining more because when it's sunny here it's just beautiful!

Chichi {From Now Till I Do} said...

Aww Stacey what a beautiful video. It's got me all emotional. I love the words you guys spoke to each other and Gary got some really great shots.

So glad we're having a videographer, cos it's true they will capture moments you forget. Congrats again!
