Trend We Love: Create Your Own Music Video

The latest trend in wedding videography: Music videos! And we don't just mean a video montage set to music. Now, couples are taking it a step further by actually lip-synching the song in the video.

Ella and Sam, the same couple with the incredible tabloid-inspired save the date, set their music video to "You Make Me Feel" by Cobra Starship. Check it out!

Thinking about making your own music video? Here, some tips on how to make it happen:

Learn the Lyrics:  Make sure anyone you plan to include in the singing portion knows the words by heart; your video will look much more natural if you're not studying the sheet right before the shot!

Watch the Original Video:  The videographer, Elysium Productions, gathered inspiration from Cobra Starship's video. This enabled them to pre-produce graphics and wording.

Make a Timeline:  The couple's planner, Carolyn Chen of The Special Day, coordinated the schedule to ensure that Ella and Sam had time to film their video without taking away from their big day. This also meant coordinating with the other vendors, like lighting and photo booth, to make sure everything was in the right place when it was time to film.

Create a Shot List:  The biggest challenge is making sure that you have every word covered! Elsyium Productions created a shot list to prevent any mishaps.
