Last year, when we were cleaning through some old boxes, my daughter found our wedding video, in VCR format. She was fascinated, having never seen a VHS tape, but was disappointed when I told her that we didn’t have a VCR anymore. My husband and I got married in 2000, and when our VCR broke back in 2004, we never replaced it. By that time, we were busy with dirty diapers and feedings, and never thought about converting it. I’d almost forgotten about it, until my daughter found it that day.
I hadn’t seen it in 10 years, until I had it converted by YesVideo earlier this month. As soon as it arrived, my kids were so eager to see it. Honestly, I was too. It had been SO long.
One night, after dinner, we sat down to watch the 30 minute video. My kids were so surprised to see everything – from how young we all looked to how fun the reception seemed to be. My son has never been to a wedding, so he assumed it was all ceremony and no fun. They loved watching our family members and friends, and especially enjoyed the dancing. I couldn’t believe how much of the day and night I’d forgotten about!
My favorite part of the video was our first dance. My husband and I took dance classes and had our first dance choreographed. Of course, we never went back to the dance studio after we got married, but it was fun to see our dance again. I shared this clip on Facebook last week for Throwback Thursday – such a fun memory.
Video transfer is a great gift idea – especially for the person who has everything. While it does usually take 3-4 weeks to complete, things can take a little longer over the holiday season. So, start pulling those videos together asap! All media must be received by YesVideo on December 2nd to transfer and return DVDs in time for December 24th. YesVideo can transfer VHS tapes, camcorder tapes, movie film reels and 35mm slides. If you’d rather not mail in your movies, you can place an order at the photo counter of any Costco, Sam’s Club, Walmart or CVS/pharmacy. Visit YesVideo to learn more.
