Father Daughter Dance: Bride’s Brother Plans Special Dance After Father Dies

There are so many videos posted to YouTube but this one is so special that it is still going viral 2 years after the couple said “I do”!

Photographer Michael LaFrance captured an emotional moment during Andrea’s wedding reception in July of 2012. Andrea lost her father, Mark, to pancreatic cancer earlier in the year, but that didn’t stop the men in her life from doing something extraordinary during the Father-Daughter dance. Andrea’s brother recorded himself singing ‘Butterfly Kisses’ by Bob Carlisle and played it during his sister’s Father-Daughter dance.

Slow Motion Video Booth – A Cool New Wedding Trend!

We’ve been waiting for a new twist on the traditional photo booth to emerge! It’s finally here.. and I’m super in love!

Say goodbye to the DIY Photo Booths with homemade props such as mustaches and boas and say hello to The Slow Motion Video Booth. Basically, it is exactly what the name says it is. Rather than just sitting down for a photo, your guests get to create a 20-second snippet of video that will be compiled and slowed down for a slow-mo production that is sure to make everyone smile.

We’re still big fans of the traditional photo booth but as Huffington Post points out, there are only so many times you can pull out the Charlie’s Angels pose before it gets tiring.

Check out an example of this growing trend from this Dallas wedding and tell us what you think! Would you swap out your photo booth for one of these?

2013 Wedding Trend #2 – Emerald!

Move over Tangerine Tango – Pantone announced PANTONE® 17-5641 Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, as the Color of the Year for 2013.
