While planning our own wedding a while back, we sought out the services
of local videographers to help us film our Love Story. The idea is not a
new one. However, it usually involved a rather generic collection of romantic
shots or at best, a cute but recycled screenplay. We thought the real story of
how we met and fell in love was deserving of its own screenplay and certainly
would make for great entertainment for our wedding guests.
What we wanted to show was a clever recreation of what really happened, not a
regurgitated romance novel. True to our “do-it-yourself” nature, we ambitiously
decided to take on the project ourselves with the agreement that if it doesn’t
work out, we’ll seek professional help – video and otherwise. Armed with a home
camcorder, a broken tripod, and some clever ideas we set to work on our project.
We shot the final scene 2 days before our wedding day and finished editing that
same night. To this day, that 10 minute film is the most remembered part of
our wedding. We showed it just at the beginning of the reception and it set
the tone for the entire event! We had our guests in a great mood and laughing before the party
even got started.
It wasn’t long before requests for our video production services began to pour
in. Several such projects later, with a fully functioning tripod and broadcast
quality equipment, we decided it was necessary to justify our addiction with
the birth of Story Tailors.
