Awwwww, yeah. Gather round and turn up your volume… Its time to celebrate the style, the savvy, the sass and the frass that members of our very own Broke-Ass Brigade have submitted… its broke-ass reader videos! *cue broke-ass video intro music* This installment features videos covering every step of weddings… we’ve got ourselves a proposal, a save-the-date, a wedding highlight video, and we’re bringing it together with a surprise bang at the end! Let’s roll film, shall we?
Ryan and Andrea’s wedding planner submitted his surprise proposal video on their behalf, and I’m so happy she did! Ryan made it himself, in the style of those cute “love is…” drawings… remember those? Way to blaze a bad-ass proposal trail for the other gents out there, son! I dig it.
Sarah sent in this charming yet simple save-the-date video. It’s cute, affordable, and fun… and I love it! Plus, doesn’t the Andy Warhol Museum sound like a rad place for a wedding? Hells yeah it does!
Rachel is a true example of a broke-ass brilliant bride, because instead of hiring a videographer, she had two friends carry camcorders and then she edited the footage together like a bad-ass to create this sweet and funky fresh 5-minute highlight video. Bonus points for writing each other’s vows (adorable) and using one of my favorite songs as the soundtrack!
And last, but not least…. My homeboy Dan Chen at Chennergy’s wife/partner Sarah is a fierce videographer, and they teamed up with their fellow shooter Lauren to make this hype video. Lauren and new hubby Matt don’t get enough time together because of Matt’s long hours as a cop. Thus, most of their engagement was done “through the phone”. You’ve got to see this one yo! Lauren wins the “my chick bad” award today.
That’s all for this round of Real Broke-Ass Reader Videos! Stay tuned for our next installment… coming soon!
