our save the date video!

Burton & I wrapped on our save the date video last night! We've already gotten plenty of e-mails back from friends & family telling us how much they loved it :] We were originally inspired to make a video instead of mailing out paper because it's free, more environmentally friendly, & a little bit more creative. & it honestly turned out much better than I was expecting!

Let me take you a little bit behind the scenes. We decided to nix the idea of filming somewhere outdoors mainly because of the heat & not really finding any place suitable to chalk up. Instead, we filmed inside of our home, on the lid of our newly-built keezer. So the most troublesome part of the whole process was placing the camera to give us a steady aerial shot. We wound up jerry-rigging a contraption with a ladder, pool cue, & a whole lotta duct tape.


Luckily, we only had to do two takes. I was so nervous during the first take that my body kind of went on autopilot. It wasn't until we finished & were celebrating our awesome video that I realized I had written "November 24th, 2014"!! We laughed it off, took this incriminating photo, & did it again. You can even see me hesitate in the video when I write 2012, just to make sure I didn't goof up twice!Then we used some basic video editing know-how to add fades, music, & change up the speed. But we're so happy with it & we're thrilled with how it has been amping up everyone's excitement for our wedding :] 135 more days!!

  2. Thank you! I'm sure my lettering could've been much fancier, but we wanted to keep it under three minutes ;]
