A memorable wedding gift

My best friend is getting married in December and moving to start married life with her husband in AUSTRALIA! (Oh so far away!) While I’ll definitely miss her I do wish them both the best and wanted to make sure I picked out a very special truly unique gift and not a blender.

I came across some old VHS videos of us in the past and decided to have them transferred to DVD for an early wedding present. I was also able to work in some current videos of us from my iphone, and a very special heartfelt video message to them both at the end. It was so beautiful and meaningful for everyone who saw it. Her mom is planning on getting their old home movies transferred too, so my friend can have her family close even though she’s far away.

I got this idea from attending a wedding where the couple showed a photo slideshow of themselves growing up, meeting each other, dating, and then getting engaged. I absolutely loved it! Plus showing it at the reception was a great idea since all the VIPs from both families were gathered together to celebrate. If you’re interested in giving “the gift of memories” inquire at They can transfer old videos, iphone video to DVD, edit your videos for highlight reels, and make cool photo slideshows. My friend was thrilled with the video I made for her and her husband had the chance to get to know her on a whole new level. It was the perfect gift!

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment.
