So I got married earlier this month. And there’s lots of amazing fun things to share from the incredible day. But this, well this makes my eyes well up and my heart just hurt from how much I love it so. I think I will probably watch it every day forever.
I’m so glad my photographer, the amazing Kate Headley, convinced me to do it (not that I needed much convincing, as her other videos are beautiful). She had it shot using an old 8mm camera, and sped up the developing of the film, to give it that jumpy shot-by-your-grandfather look that I adore. And I can’t believe that she chose Regina Spektor’s amazing song, “Us,” to set it to. The song had been weaving its way through my head throughout the planning process, yet it seemed too much for a first dance. But to have everything tied together and this music playing in the background just about blew my mind. Incredible.
