Welcome! I'm a newlywed who started this blog to document the planning of our September 2010 wedding, and ended up addicted to blogging! Follow our journey through life as we try to find the way to our "perfect" marriage. Happy reading!

Why do people film their wedding? I mean, it's not like you'll sit there and watch it over and over again is it? Chocolate Lover and I aren't too big on filming stuff to begin with, hence my questioning of the practice. We don't even buy DVD's or hold on to DVR recordings. I think that once you watch a movie that's it! If you are desperate to watch it again I'm sure it can be found somewhere so what's the point of spending money on collectibles? Then again, I wouldn't mind having a copy of the Shawshank Redemption, so from that point of view if something is important enough or you like it that much, then it's worth having.
So for our wedding, although we are not going nuts on videography (we focussed more of our resources on photography), we will still hire a videographer to capture the raw footage of everything that went on. Then the thought is to have friends and family film their own vingettes using digital cameras and collect all of that footage onto iMovie on a Mac so that we can create a good, but FREE, 5 minute highlight video. We'll be asking the videographer to setup an additional camera on a tripod filming us from the "viewer's" angle so that our guests sitting outside the small church of Aphrodite Hills can watch what's going on inside the church through either two LCD screens mounted on the wall of the church or on a projector screen. We haven't figured out all the details yet...
At the end of the day, your wedding day is important enough that you don't want to regret not having done something after the fact. And with that premise in mind, we will be recording it live from Aphrodite Hills on September 25, 2010.
Until next Friday, this is Mr. Milk signing off.
P.S. Why do we still say "film" when everything nowadays is digital? I guess will be "diggin" our wedding day :o)
