Wedding video slideshow with movie clips!

how the screen looked!
I decided to try and make my wedding just that much more special with a custom video slideshow that showcased not only our pictures but also some cool movie clips.
It was a big task to take on, but I didn't want to bore my guests with a typical set of photos that just dissolved from one to the next.
I started collecting scenes and pictures, but soon realized that it was maybe too big a atask to take on myself, until finally I found out about a site that already had some great templates to use. The site was called http://gigflixstudio.com
My now-husband was doing the editing on imovie, a pretty simple software tool. All we had to do was download the video file (in HD!) and just add our photos.
It was pretty easy and we ended up with a great piece that we not only showed at the reception, but that we throw into our DVD player on occassion for a good laugh.
I just thought some other DIY couples out there would appreciate the easy/cheap tip to spice up your typical wedding slideshow entertainment.
