    {I hope this is the right place to post this - I did a search first}

     

    Has anyone looked into the Super 8 style wedding video? I had to have this after I saw a christening video on an episode of "9 by design". I've done some research and it's not cheap. I'm wondering if anyone has found someone reasonably priced. I'm also considering finding a camera and film to do it ourselves, after playing around on ebay. Thanks!

        I'm not sure where you'd start but that's a fantastic idea!!!  Would you mind posting if you locate a vendor?

          I'm surprised there is no post on it already! It's beautiful! Well it is to me but I LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage things. Basically its an old camera and film so it has that fuzzy look, but theres no sound {they put it to music} I want the super 8 wedding video because I think it would be perfect to send to family who couldn't {make} it to the dw - without showing a long boring video - it gives the highlights and the essence of the event - I also LOVE the message booth/guest book idea so they can see who came!

           

          You can google it and check these out! Beware you might "have to have" this too! :)

           

          click view samples to watch weddings and the photo booth:

          I love this guy cause he also does hd so he can mix the two and you can get sound {like of the vows}:

          It's hard to find a style I don't like - I think what's important is that they catch everything you want them to and don't edit important things out. But with being laid off this year it's expensive - i'm trying to figure out what I can give up to have this! I was thinking paying someone to come to the Bahamas isn't going to help either.

           

           

          oh and another video i like:

                This is the first time I've ever heard of a super 8 video and I love it! I hope you find a way to get one done. Good luck!

                  I think that's my best option so far - This place will send you the camera and film - you film it and they'll edit it for $1700.

                    I don't know anything about it or where you would find out more about it, but I watched the samples and it is a very interesting concept.  Great idea!

                      Am I crazy for wanting to give up real flowers, an expensive dress, and a dinner for this?

                      wow do you really want to give up ALL of that for this video? I'm sure you can get a videographer to do a regular video recording and still keep all those things that you want. the super 8 is quite nice but i'm not sure i would sacrifice flowers, an expensive dress and dinner for it.
