112 Weddings

YOONHEE & TOM - Wedding #43
The wedding business is about the business of getting married.  At the end of the day, most teary eyed brides and sometimes grooms, say "It was the most perfect day of my life....it was perfect.....I wouldn't change a thing".  

Doug Block, a documentary filmmaker, who also shoots weddings, had a question......what happens after the perfect day and was it the best day of their lives.  He went back and interviewed some the couples he shot.  Some have divorced, deal with dept, while others have children with difficult medical realities, and then even though it's hard there are couples who are happy and wouldn't change a thing.

After watching 112 Weddings, I wonder what has happened to some of my brides that I connected with during the making of their dress.  All I can say is, I pray they are living extraordinary lives.

Weirdly and Wonderfully Out Of Order

It's weeks later and your wedding memories come flooding back in some strange order.  Cutting the cake, dancing with Dad, the walk down the aisle, the laughter the food, it has no rhyme or reason, they are wonderful memories coming in for a visit.

I search You Tube and Vimeo for creative wedding videos.  Most go in a particular order.  See the bride get ready, see the groom get dressed, watch the wedding, see the bridal party take photos....zzzzzzzz.  They all begin to look alike, despite there are different couples celebrating their wedding day.  



When I saw one of Mr. Thomas's videos, I fell in love with this style, it's unique and creative.   I call it Weirdly and Wonderfully out of order.  It feels like more like an Independent movie than an average wedding video.  Andrew Thomas's team loves what they do which helps them create a visual odyssey of a day that is filled with love (read more and see more).

Cake Topper?...Just The Two of Us



I love unique things for weddings and found these little statues, Just The Two Of Us,  which I thought were perfect for cake topper or a centerpiece for the couples table.  The beauty of this item is it can become a part of the household after the wedding.
