Just last week an engaged Facebook buddy pleaded in her status update, “To or to not do a wedding video? I love the idea, but my fiance isn’t sold. Need to convince him. Help!” Of course, Triple B was on the case. I immediately sent her a link to Tie the Knot Tuesday couple Cleo and Lyncoln’s Q&A on choosing (and budgeting for) a videographer and advised her to book one based on honest feedback from the hundreds of brides I’ve interviewed. Said buddy was very appreciative. But just this morning I realized that I never shared The Road to Mrs. alum Nadine’s wedding trailer with you! Well, here it is (newlyweds Nadine and her hilarious hubby Sean don’t disappoint). The three things I enjoy most about this wedding trailer are Nadine’s teenage son in the video (he was a significant part of the union afterall), the video switching from black and white to color as the couple jumps the the broom (it was subtle but carries loads of significance) and last but certainly not least, the inclusion of their engagement trip to Cuba in the middle. Swoon! Enjoy folks and leave me a comment with your fave parts, as well as advice for my friend on how to convince her fiance to book a videographer for their own big day.
I recently discovered a fan-ta-bu-lous wedding videographer resource while checking out Bride & Soul’s hot new site. If they aren’t already, put Three Ring Media on your radar! This husband-wife duo is based in Atlanta but also work their magic for weddings in DC and NYC (and might travel to other locations as well for the right $). Their videos are shot using Blu-Ray technology so everything looks crisp and the colors are vibrant. But what really impressed me was the personalized storytelling approach they bring to their craft. Think Tie the Knot Tuesdays on film. Check out these two (Janelle & Travis made me cry!): [Read more...]
Last week’s Tie the Knot featured couple Rashida and Ben are back! And this week they’re sharing a very special video of their First Dance as husband and wife with Triple B. No long introductions needed for this one. View the video here until I figure out how to properly embed it below. (UGH!) You should also take a look at the creative couple’s Save the Date video which is equally as enjoyable. Be sure to leave a comment with your feedback as I’m sure you’ll have some after viewing this — definitely watch it until the end.

Happy Friday, y’all! I’m sure you’re looking forward to the upcoming weekend as much as I am. So, I’m sharing this treat from our fave newlywed and former Road to Mrs. blogger, Charli. Below is her touching, hilarious and plain ‘ole feel-good wedding trailer. The talented Anthony Palmini created it and I love the behind-the-scenes and bloopers footage, as well as, the song selections. The energy of Charli and her hubby Gibran is palpable. Who said wedding videos had to be uptight and stuffy? Enjoy and be sure to do something fun this weekend! (Don’t forget to leave a comment with your thoughts on the video.)
