Melissa + Nick | How to Capture the Best Video Scenes at Your Wedding

Today's real wedding features Melissa and Nick. Melissa shares with us her tips for capturing the absolute best scenes from your wedding using the WeddingMix package and free iPhone app. Their wedding was held at the beautiful Marriott Lincolnshire Resort in Lincolnshire, IL.
Melissa rented 3 cameras from Storymix and put them two of them in the hands of friends whom she knew would have been shooting video anyway. Her bridesmaids filmed Melissa busily getting ready, while the groomsmen filmed their ridiculously relaxing morning. They used the third camera on their honeymoon in Hawaii.

In her feature length video, Melissa set the scene for a classic he said/she said movie. She directed the Storymix editors to show the details of her getting ready the morning of the wedding - interspersed with clips of Nick playing golf at the very same time! As you'll see below in the trailer video, the result is hilarious.

Melissa had some great advice for future WeddingMix Brides: "I would suggest telling your camera people a few highlights of what you want captured: ceremony, cutting the wedding cake, first dance etc." We couldn't agree more with this piece of advice, and it's also why we've created a free download of suggested video and pictures! Be sure to print these off and give them to your guests who will be filming. You can also use the shotlist right in the app to tell your friends which scenes are most dear to you.

On to the trailer for Melissa and Nick.
