Filmed by Matt. Edited by Chris.
Many of you will remember when we posted the cyriptic post “The Gift of a Memory“… Well this is that wedding!
Matt and Zach worked undercover with the help of Jeff & Lori of Indigosilver and were able to suprize Jenny & Matt with a film that they love.
After seeing her film for the first time Jenny had this to say:
“Thank you so much for the highlight video!! It was absolutely amazing and brought back so many wonderful memories of our wedding day. I’m am so very pleasantly surprised ,especially because I had no idea it was being video taped. Thank you for capturing our special day in such a beautiful way ! We look forward to seeing more to come.”

Things we LOVED about this wedding:
1. Jenny’s beautiful backless dress
2. The musician that played during the ceremony was awesome. Doug McFarland‘s version of “Question” by Rhett Miller was arguably better than the original.
3. The reception was full of dancers, both serious and silly alike. They used their the DJ to the fullest advantage!
4. The cake cutting ceremony was practically a food fight! (it didn’t make it into the Highlights films but was hilarious nonetheless)
5. The groom’s family and the groom all dancing very silly in the reception. They looked like they were having a ton of fun
This was a first for us. Jenny, the bride, didn’t want a wedding video so, her mother secretly booked us because she knew the value in having her daughter’s day on film. Mothers always know best.
The couple had no idea we were there as videographers. They thought we were intern photographers assisting Indigosilver for the day. Thanks Jeff and Lori for playing it up with us!
You may notice a “simpler” approach to the style of this wedding film. Even as phony photographers Zach and I were still able to catch the authentic, genuine moments that we love. We were honored to be trusted and invited by Jenny’s mom. We had a blast trying something new!
We wanted to share with you the bride’s change of heart. She is now a believer, and knows the good guys don’t put cameras in anyone’s face.
“I originally didn’t want it video tapped for two reasons, one, added cost, two, I didn’t want to feel like I had to act a certain way because it was being filmed.
My mom told me the day after the wedding she had it secretly video taped. At first I was vey upset and didn’t want any part in seeing it. I’m not the type of person that likes to see pictures of myself and the thought of seeing such intimate moments caught on film made me very uncomfortable. Especially because what you taped it the real deal and among others I was an emotional wreck that day !
I was doing my clinicals at the hospital and Matt was at work when we received your email. I quickly went in a separate room to watch it. I was so blown away and moved when I saw it. It more was than I could had ever expected. On your wedding day you don’t really get to listen to what the preacher is saying or the message behind his sermon. It was so emotional to hear a couple months after being married what the preacher said and the message behind it. Also, being able to relive some of those moments. Our wedding day flew by, but now we can always go back and remember how special it was. Had it been a traditional videographer I don’t now that we would have the same feelings about it being filmed.
So, in answer to your question knowing what I know now I would have absolutely chose to have it taped prior.
I hope this helps, thank you again
P.S. Matt said he was very touched and loved the video as well. My mother in law even called me crying and said she loved watching it !”
