I’ll be very surprised if this wedding film doesn’t have you you tearing up. Even just a little.*
Michelle and Aaron are both military pilots who fell in love.
They met on a joint mission in Korea, got engaged in Cambodia and were married in Northern California, ‘where the ocean meets the redwoods’.
Film maker, Vanessa McKellar, documented their intimate nuptials on super 8mm film.
The result? A nostalgic, beautiful and moving wedding film.
Vanessa shares a little more about their day…
Their ceremony took place in an open field marked by trees decorated with ribbons and paper cranes. Michelle’s mom played the viola for the processional, and Aaron’s mom officiated. The bride carried colourful balloons in lieu of a bouquet. Beautiful vows were read out of a small book. After the ceremony ensued the most epic video/photo session ever – kissing next to a herd of stampeding sheep, climbing fallen Redwoods, paddling a canoe through a pond filled with lily pads.
* Seriously, I’ve watched it three times now yet their heart felt vows get me every time!
Thanks so much to Vanessa McKellar for sharing this super – super 8mm wedding film. (See what I did there?) And you’ll be pleased to hear The McKellars are available for travel worldwide!
