Josh with the UA

Posted by madkingblog on March 18, 2009

Don and I had a wedding on a fairly tight budget. And it turned out amazing! Better than I could have even dreamed when I began planning. We didn’t have the budget for a professional videographer and the only thing to go wrong on the day of, as something always will, is the handheld video camera we had asked a family member to bring wouldn’t turn on. We tried everything and it just would not work. Nothing fazed us that day, we were on cloud nine, but since the wedding, the only thing we truly regretted was not having our first dance on video. We took lessons and practiced for months (ok maybe only 2 or 3, but that is still months) and it was one of the best experiences of that day! Pictures can only capture such a thing so well.

This past weekend, my friend Josh visited from LA with his girlfriend Beth, and they had a gift for us. During the reception, I think they realized that we didn’t have a videographer, and Josh used his digital camera to take video of our first dance, the toasts, dancing, and Don dancing with his grandmother – all the things that pictures can not capture, and put them on DVD for us!! We are so grateful! Watching this video brings a flood of memories that were already escaping us. These are priceless memories!

Josh is with out a doubt one of the best friends I’ve ever had. We have been there for each other more times than I can count over the past 10 or so years. He has an incredible heart for his friends and from what I know of his girlfriend Beth, she has one to match! It completely shows in their thoughtfulness to capture those moments for Don and me.

Josh and Beth – thank you so much! You guys rock!

Josh and his beautiful girlfriend Beth…

Don’t let us forget to tell you about the commercial we fillmed after the hike.  Wait maybe we don’t want to tell you.
