My wedding memories came back to life!
I was married in the summer of 2001. Memories of the day are ever present in my mind. It was a rare high of 78 degrees in the middle of July and it was absolutely breath-taking. I loved watching my video with my family and seeing everyone having a wonderful time. There is one moment at the very end where my husband spins me around and all of our friends are dancing around us. It is at the very end of my wedding video and it is done in slow motion. I love this moment. I love that I can revisit this memory over and over.
Just 13 years ago, it was standard for your videographer to give you are VCR tape of your wedding. Or, for the low price of $1000, I could have upgraded to DVD. After all the other money that we spent preparing for the wedding, I thought it best not to spend that last $1000.
A few years ago, my last VCR went kaput! That was it. I loved sharing my wedding video with my girls and we debated over and over about getting another VCR even though it was the only thing we would need it for. I then put them on a high shelf in my house for fear that my youngest might pull the tape of of the cartridge.
I thought about transferring my tapes to DVDs but I had not gotten around to it. Before my VCR stopped working, I had watched parts with my girls, but they were little and could not sit through it all.
Seeing my movies online and on DVD made me so happy! My girls are now 4, 8 and 11 so we were now able to watch together as a complete family. It was bittersweet to see loved ones who had passed and share my memories of them with my girls. Now that they were older, they began to understand better and enjoy all parts of the ceremony and reception.
My mother is always amazed at the things you can do online so she was shocked when I share my video clip online with her. It is now so accessible that it is easy to share with family and friends.
I am so glad that I finally transferred my Wedding Memories from VCR tape to DVD.
