I imagined us making a video for our wedding invitation pretty much from the beginning. We obviously had no budget for buying fancy invitations and paper crafting is something I’ve just never been into. So we decided to put my film degree to use!
We basically wanted to share a little of our journey and history with our invitees through this video. I came up with the stop-motion animation idea as a fun, cartoony way to tell our story. Zach used his artistic talents to make the cars, buses, and boats you see in the video. We chose the song “Flowers in Your Hair” by the Lumineers because we love the sound and lyrics, and its so short it forced us to keep the video brief! All of our guests received a short email with the link to this video. (Also, in the version guests received, the last title shows our wedding website URL, but I took it out here to maintain our privacy.)
So, without further ado, the Carrie, Onwards! premiere of Zach and Carrie’s wedding invitation video!
What do you think? Did anyone else make a video invitation? What did you do? How did your guests react?
