I am so exited to share Michael + Jackie’s breathtaking wedding video with you today! Not only is this the first video I have ever shared on Something Turquoise, but it is one of my favorite wedding videos, period. There is a great story behind this video, the groom is actually a videographer… but obviously couldn’t be behind the camera. So his crew, Kenny and Marty filmed this special day… and Michael did the editing. Grab a few tissues, watch the video, and then read the rest of my thoughts below…

I have seen a LOT of wedding videos… and this one is different. I think the reason it feels so touching is because the groom himself did the editing. Through this short film you can really see how much he loves his bride Jackie, and why he loves her. Watching it over and over to write this post, the tears kept falling down my cheeks because you can tell that their love is real. To me, it feels like I am watching a movie and I just want to see more. Reading Michaels thoughts on his wedding day and the importance of photography and videography, from a vendor’s standpoint and now as an ex-groom; is right on. All you have left after this special day is the photography… make sure that all your efforts in planning and dreaming about your day are well documented.

Don’t you LOVE the arch that M + J were married under!!?? Michael, his father, brother, and brother in-law built it themselves out of driftwood that they found on the beach near by!

  1. [...] The other awesome site to pick up the video is SomethingTurquoise.com, a daily inspirational wedding site named after the old rhyme “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” Jen, the rad person behind the site, contacted me a few weeks ago regarding our unexpected time-lapse proposal where we were fortunate enough to capture a proposal during a time-lapse of the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. Although we have yet to find that couple, we’re confident that with the help of sites like SomethingTurquoise.com, word will spread and that couple will be found. Fast forward a week and Jen saw my wedding video and fell in love. Here’s her post: http://somethingturquoise.com/2011/10/06/1232/ [...]
