The new wedding video

What is the world coming to?

No seriously… this is pretty cool. I kind of wonder if they did the wedding bits for reals and then had everyone stay seated and redo a couple bits. It’s not too often you see a boom camera used at a wedding. I like it!

And a nice use of the iPad on the front end there, too.

An idea for my friends Paul and Amy. This would be a nice little $50,000 upgrade to your package!

What do you think? Fun or tacky?

    Fake. But entertaining. By “fake” I mean a ton of work went onto that and it was way cool but they must have done a ton of shots

    What a fun idea… I love it! I would totally do that for the weddings I shoot if I had the team to pull it off 🙂

    I’m with Lars in that there had to have been a ton of takes, but I think in the end it is fun and awesome. I would have had more fun with doing takes with the entire crowd for video than the crazy amount of “takes” we take for posed wedding pics.

    Terranea Resort. I’ve officiated a wedding right there before. Stunning. I wonder if the pastor had time for the vows? Dirty bit. I like the black iPad better. A theology of ‘weddings’ is timely that takes into consideration joyful and crazy fun while at the same time acknowledging our drift from the sacred in the ceremony.

      Bill- cool detail on the location. I have a feeling that’s not a cheap place for a wedding. I watched the video from more of a “how did they do it” perspective. If I had to guess, they did the ceremony as normal. (you see a couple clips) but it looks like after the recessional they probably asked guests to stay seated and play along. They maybe did it 2-3 times. The rest of it, I have a feeling they just played the song a couple of times during te reception. Other than that… There’s tons of b-roll. I’d guess that the one guy is an actor (with unbuttoned collar) and the set with the girls on the grass was probably shot before the wedding. I think it’s really fun!
