We love how film and video can portray so many moods on a wedding day. This is the second film short in a series from Michelle and John's wedding in Newport in August. We have so much fun eye candy to work with for their wedding weekend. From the Rehearsal Dinner Clambake to even more playful splicing and tunes for their Gatsby-esque cocktail hour and elegant reception.
For this 'chapter' of their day, (church ceremony) we found the vintage feel of Super 8 film captures the pure emotion in a way that sometimes even the most sleek editing on a high definition piece cannot. The black and white film focuses the attention on the simple gestures and emotions. The nervous glances, a father's kiss on his daughter's hand before the church doors open, the faces of the children in awe, and the big smiles of the new couple as they exit the church for the first time as husband and wife. Even the guests fanning themselves (no AC here!) in the church pew on what must have been the hottest day of the season has a feel of days gone by.
Michelle and John are a special couple and we feel this short film on their wedding ceremony embodies beautiful simplicity of those moments.
