Favorite Wedding DIY Tutorials Part II

26 Sep

Welcome to my second in a series of my favorite DIY wedding decor and ideas culled from Pinterest. You can see Part I here.

DIY flower crown from Honestly…WTF:

Mason jars may have had their 15 minutes already, but I still love them, and they are so multi-purpose, and they are better any color you want them (I did this for my wedding last year–beware Vitreous paint in the stove can be really fume-y!). Tutorial at julie ann art:

A new take… Gorgeous Mason Jar & Doily Luminaries by Crafts by Amanda at Sparkle & Hay:

I have been dying to make these since I saw this tutorial on etsy!

Paper carnations are a simple, inexpensive DIY decor piece that can go a long way… At Oh Hello Friend courtesy of the Gilded Bee.

Perfect for a laid-back bridal shower, at Richellephant:

Love the idea of re-using old T-shirts and making poms at Craftaholics Anonymous!

Some sweet mood lighting at Free Pretty Things for You:

Such a pretty idea at Glamour & Grace:

Nostalgia Film Fall Update

We have been staying busy at Nostalgia Film as summer turns into fall! We recently shot a yoga tutorial for the web for the lovely Maya at Breathe Eat Dance Evolve, which we cannot wait to finish editing to share with you.

We have been booking weddings for spring and fall of 2012, and are entering the fall 2011 wedding season. We still have dates available, including some availability in 2011, so please contact us.

We also have some sweet family Super 8 film footage we shot earlier this month, which we hope to share soon. We were lucky enough to travel to Nevada and Arizona, and see the Grand Canyon for the first time. We have some HD footage of that to share, too, and I have a couple of Holga photographs from the trip, below, complete with lots of fun light leaks and effects.

It’s a great opportunity to meet, share knowledge and tips, and relax and have fun! We got to go to the inaugural event in June at La Sombra Bar & Grill, and had a wonderful time meeting a lot of new talented people in the industry and left feeling invigorated and with lots of new professional recommendations to share with our brides and grooms. Thanks to the gals from Sweet Pea Events partnered with Kelly Rucker Photography and  Doodle Dog Advertising who made it happen!

Fun Wedding Film Intro: Reservoir Dogs

9 Jun

We lucked out getting to shoot Matt & Liisa’s wedding! They were a perfect match for Nostalgia Film with their creative and fun-loving spirit, and that allowed us to get some really special Super 8  film. While the groom and his groomsmen were doing their photography shoot with the uber-talented Nichols, the groom caught my eye, and asked what I thought about getting a little footage inspired by Reservoir Dogs.

I am a Quentin Tarantino fan–I must have watched an analyzed Pulp Fiction 800 times for one course during film school–so I jumped at the chance! It was one of those spontaneous moments that you couldn’t plan if you tried, and I love the results. When Mike was finishing up editing their full-length film, we just couldn’t let this film sit unfeatured. So we gathered my film and his HD video, and put together the following, after lovingly watching the Reservoir Dogs many times!We added it to the intro of their DVD to surprise the groom.

Let us know what you think in the comments!

Liisa & Matt’s Wedding Super 8 Film

11 May




We were so thrilled that we got to capture Super 8 film and HD video of Liisa and Matt’s wedding.  Such a sweet and fun couple, they hail from Chicago, Illinois, and had their wedding at the gorgeous Star Hill Ranch in the Texas Hill Country. This wedding was full of love and happiness and had such a comfortable and creative vibe. Liisa even letterpressed her own stunning invitations!

As if I didn’t like this couple enough already, during the toasts, I found out Liisa and I share a favorite holiday–Halloween. The couple met at a Halloween party. In the same spirit of fun, the groom and his groomsmen enacted a classic movie scene with me, that you’ll see for yourself above. And this is the only wedding I’ve been to where someone broke out the worm on the dance floor!

Liisa and Matt, we feel so lucky to have been a part of your wedding, and we wish you a lifetime of fun and happiness together!
