“It’s not getting from A to B. It’s not the beginning or the destination that counts. It’s the ride in between … This train is alive with things that should be seen and heard. It’s a living, breathing something – you just have to want to learn its rhythm.” David Baldacci.
Wouldn’t it be great if someone could create an app that mapped out the journey of your life? Not just all the places you have been, but also the people you have met, the experiences you have endured and enjoyed – all those little twists and turns you have followed in order to get you to where you are today … your wedding day!
Life is seldom about one single path, and there’s no better illustration of that than the day two people decide to combine their separate journeys in order to start out on the remainder of life’s journey together.
Most journeys are not so much about the journey itself – they are more about the stops along the way, the reasons that govern which paths are chosen, and the interesting experiences we gather en route. All this helps shape us as a person, and leads us to arriving at our current destination.
At The Memory Theater, we want to share that journey with you, so you can in turn share your own journeys with your friends and family as they gather to celebrate your special day. We’ll create for you a retrospective of all those twists and turns you’ve both encountered along the way leading up the day you finally choose to become one. We mix still photographs, digital images, digital video clips, home movies (if you have them) and perhaps even interviews with yourselves and the important people in your life – all to create a wonderful memento of the hows and wherefores of the lifelong journey you’ve taken up to the moment of your marriage. The end result being the perfect celebration of your lives – a professionally rendered audiovisual retrospective of the unique paths you have both taken, and how those paths magically converged to become one true way forward.
Your can play your ‘video biography‘ at your reception on the big day, so that your friends and family learn how you both came to be the people you are today, and why you have chosen to cement your relationship by becoming a married couple. It also gives you a treasured reminder of every aspect of your lives before ‘two becomes one’ – something you can look back upon time and time again as you continue forward, now not as separate entities, but as a happily married couple.
The journey through life is not always easy – there are obstacles to surmount, pits to fall into and challenges that you have to face. No doubt there are also many golden moments to look forward to, wonderful memories to create and unforgettable experiences to share. At least you’ll know from this point forward you’ll always have someone by your side, to help you through the bad times and to share with you the good. At The Memory Theater, we hope your video biography is the perfect reminder of the moment you knew you’d never have to tread life’s meandering path on your own again.
We are very excited to be presenting at the Southern Bridal Show & Expo in Raleigh, NC on August 9th and 10th.
