Couples are inundated with choices for weddings. Not just location and date but what is the style, flow and decor for the big day that will perfectly reflect who they are as a couple and what they value? Are they more drawn to the rustic elegance of an autumn wedding at a vineyard, a classic beach vibe in Summer or an urban black tie affair in Winter or Spring?
Wedding films are no exception. Many more of our clients are incorporating vintage Super 8 into their films or even dedicating one full highlight to the sixties, nostalgic charm of this medium. Every couple is so different and unique and we love the challenge of finding new ways to share this through our shooting, editing and song choices.
We thought we would share three recent films to give you a sense of the way we incorporate Super 8 into three very different days.
Jenna + Aaron: Vintage, old world charm for their garden party
With a team of some very talented vendors including gorgeous photography from Carla Ten Eyck, stunning florals from Datura , delicious menu from Gourmet Galley, Jenna and Aaron hosted a quintessential garden party by the sea, Harkness Park. With many traditional elements and the simple elegance of their day- they were drawn to having one complete highlight in the simplicity of Super 8.
Courtney + Justin: Urban, sixties rock + roll in the city
The black and white film and classic rock gave Courtney and Justin's highlight a decidedly edgier feel for their downtown celebration (with photography by Vicki and Erik at Victoria Souza at the Society Room in Hartford.) In this film, we blended the hard edge of the clipped vintage film with beautiful images of their day on our Canons. They are a fun couple whose film we hope reflects their spirited wedding!
Jackie + Keith: Classic story telling with a sprinkling of vintage Super 8
Jacki and Keith hosted an elegant affair by the water at the the Glen Island Harbor Club with beautiful images from Candice Jeffrey and their film reflects just a peppering of vintage with what was a beautifully classic and traditional event.
