Wedding: Videography

September 26, 2012

For more wedding posts, visit my new Wedding tab!

For our wedding videography, we hired Justin Bond of Cinematic Occasions. We were super impressed by all the work on his site, but were truly blown away how by our own wedding film turned out. Justin did an incredible job of capturing the day and night, and his skill with video-editing and the camera is awe-inspiring.

Here’s a 1-minute “trailer,” if you just want a quick glimpse…

…and here’s the full 10-minute wedding mini-movie.

I have a lot left to post about, but to quickly answer a few burning Q’s you may already have…
1) Yes, we made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for our unity ceremony.
2) Yes, my bouquet was made of purple kale.
3) All the music in the videos is by Nine Inch Nails, and we had many other NIN touches in the wedding, including quotes in the ceremony, all the table names, and more.

If I’ve now gotten you curious about many other details, know that I WILL be blogging about much more! But I still don’t know yet when we’ll receive our photos, and since I want to include those in many of my posts, I’ll have to wait until then. But hopefully soon!

If you live in the Kansas City area and are looking for a wedding videographer, we can’t recommend Cinematic Occasions highly enough. Justin exceeded our greatest hopes and expectations in every way!

      Thanks Amy! Not to toot our own horn or anything, but we were told my many people that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to πŸ˜› I can’t wait to get our photos back so I can post about all the details!

    This has to be the most beautiful, well made wedding video I have EVER seen. Not just because of the cinematography,but because of the LOVE. I had tears in my eyes the entire time watching!

    You were just breathtaking, Amber. And Matt, what a sweet, fun, loving AND handsome partner you have chosen. Your love for each other was just so wonderful to watch. It really had me in tears. It was also such fun to see you in the video. You are so gorgeous! What a happy, happy day. I’m glad everything went well. Wishing you a lifetime of love.

    Big hugs to you,

    Thank you for sharing your special day! Love the video!

    Every time I watch this, it gives me chills and reminds me how grateful I am to have been there with you and Matt for your wedding, celebrating the glory that is your love. Thank you, dear heart.

    P.S. On my fourth time watching this, I suddenly noticed that you can see me in the gaggle of women during the kale bouquet toss…. steadfastly not going for it at all. Bahahaha!

    Oh my gosh….you had me in tears here, like your middle aged aunt or something! Seriously, I had to bring out the Kleenex box!

    Thank you for opening your life so transparently to us–that is brave and generous of you and Matt. In return, please know there are so many of us sending you piles and piles of good energy and wishes!

    Also, kudos for doing your wedding YOUR way. It was Gotham-on-a-spring-day, fun, quirky, very irreverent yet strangely traditional!! You looked ravishing and Matt is very handsome; most attractive is the fun and kindness that is so palpable between you guys and your friends and family.

    Again, much love and joy from one of your many readers. Thanks again for sharing.

      You almost have ME in tears from your comment! Hehe.
      I appreciate your well wishes so very much (Matt does too!), and thank you also for your kind words about our wedding “style”!

    I had to come back and watch this again. That Justin is brilliant and you are just radiant!
    And what a mind-blowingly cool wedding…from the dress to the pb&j to the NIN soundtrack. You are so wildly creative…if I ever decide to do that marriage thing, may I hire you and Justin as my design/image team?
    Best wishes to you both. Blessed Be. πŸ™‚

      Thanks!! Dude, I would totally be your Offbeat Wedding Consultant πŸ˜‰ And I’m sure Justin would fly anywhere to film another awesome gothy wedding!
