Destination Wedding Vacation – Yes we went to Disney
Destination wedding location - Florida!
This last weekend Lori and I (Daniel) went to Clearwater, Florida to watch two friends of ours get married (a fun destination wedding), We are so excited for them. It was a beautiful wedding! We decided that since we are going to Florida for the wedding we might as well make a long weekend out of it. So we went down three days early and enjoyed some of Orlando’s finest attractions.
When I say finest attractions, I mean Disney. Growing up, my father, was the biggest Disney fan I had ever met. He has gone to Disney every chance he can and I have fond memories of going there as a child. Lori, on the other hand, has only been one time when she was 7 so she has very little memory of Disney. Her biggest memory was riding Dumbo. Yes, we got on the Dumbo ride. It was a blast to go back!
Why are you telling me this?
This post isn’t about a wedding film (or a destination wedding for that matter). This post is about a passion project that I did. It’s my way of taking a small break from weddings for a weekend and doing something different. We decided we wanted to make a vacation video, but also knew that most vacation videos are pretty boring for anyone other than the people that went.
Lori and I decided that we just wanted to show a quick montage of our weekend and nothing more. So we took our GH4 and shot a lot of slow-motion and other footage throughout the weekend. We narrowed it down to two minutes of epic fun. I hope you enjoy!
As far as the wedding we attended goes, it was the first time in about a year and 1/2 that we have been to a wedding and not filmed it. We thought about bringing a camera for some of the highlight video, but decided to just stay out of the way of the professionals and enjoy it from the our table.
Don’t worry though, we are back in New Hampshire and we have two weddings (although neither is a destination wedding) to film this weekend. Shannon and Mike’s wedding will be on the blog next week (edit: Here is their wedding - "Love has a Funny Way"). Stay tuned!
