2) A Different Celebrity Wedding Photo from Past or Present!

The photo a couple cherishes the most from their wedding is often one of whimsy or of themselves in a wonderful shot where the background adds a story or effect all its own to the photo. The memorable celebrity shots below are of Forest Whitaker passionately kissing his beloved Keisha Nash and John Travolta literally sweeping his new wife, Kelly Preston off her feet.

3) Poems, Prayers & Promises

A romantic quote to elevate your mood or to help you find the right sentiment for your vows or ceremony.

"What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel
that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour,
to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?"

       George Elliot

Getting Good Video Footage ...

Video is all about movement, about life. The worst thing you can do is freeze and stare at the camera without saying anything. You will be having a lot of fun at your wedding and you will be at your most beautiful when you are smiling and laughing with your groom, friends and family. The videographer will be trying to catch you at these moments. If you are aware of them try to either ignore their presence or ham it up. But try not to let them catch you eating! It's really hard to get a beautiful shot of someone chewing.
Since you are paying them to get moving pictures you can set up some things ahead of time to add some visual interest in this department. Is there a fabulous staircase you and your groom can descend? Are the gardens beautiful? A shot of you two walking through a garden in your wedding finery is a lovely thing to behold in the final video. At a wedding I went to recently, a bride arrived in an open carriage. The image of her with the veil flowing behind her in the wind was priceless. If there will be anything lit (sparklers), thrown (rose petals or confetti) or blown (bubbles) be sure that the videographer knows about it before hand, preferably in a written or typed planned agenda of the days festivities.
Be sure to give them the names of people you really wish to have in your video (again in writing before the event - you don't have time to introduce them at the wedding). They don't know your friends, so giving them this list will ensure that those people you love the most appear in your video.

4A)Wedding Dance Tip
If you are going to do more than the high school sway, be sure to let your videographer know. Many couples do not take the few hours necessary to make their first dance as perfect as it can be. They are awkward and embarrassed at having so many people staring at them. This leads many videographers to film only a small part of it. If you put forth the effort to make your dance special by learning to dance to your song, then let the person filming your wedding in on the secret! They will position themselves accordingly and be sure to put your first dance as one of the highlights of the video!

5) A Wedding Tradition Explained!

Until the arrival of modern times, brides were considered their father's property. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their intended future spouse. Within the nobility and the rich, it was common for fathers to commission deceptively flattering portraits painted of their children to accompany the offers of marriage they made between themselves. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.

Many of us have excellent memories for recalling significant emotional events that have impacted our lives. However, it is surprising how many people cannot remember the words that were spoken during that most important day -- their wedding day. The wedding ceremony elicits a full range of emotions to include excitement, nervousness, anticipation, apprehension and happiness.
Videos are an excellent means for achieving those emotions to be remembered, shared and cherished for the rest of your lives. PushPoint can help you achieve this through their professional services. They offer a variety of wedding packages in videography and web design.
