Alan Berg has a wonderful blog post from a story he wrote for Beautiful Bride Magazine about the enduring value of wedding videography. He talks about discovering an old box of 8mm films from his parents’ wedding and the impact that had on him.

There stood my parents, happy and youthful, sharing their wedding day with friends and relatives, many of whom were no longer with us. I saw their first dance. I saw my grandparents, who were probably my age now. I saw my great-grandparents, who were probably the age my parents are now.

He says he and his wife neglected to get a wedding video of their own wedding, but now watching his parents’, he realizes how priceless it would have been.
