YOU WERE MADE FOR THE MOVIES!


by Sarah DiCicco

The most memorable day of any girl’s life has now become positively unforgettable. For the first time ever, wedding photographer Sarah DiCicco (www.sarahdicicco.com) has made it possible for newlyweds, along with their family and friends, to relive the love, laughter and emotion of their wedding day in the grandest of fashion offering an exclusive photo presentation of their special day on the movie theater big screen.

With the help of CinemaCake (www.cinemacake.com), DiCicco compiles the wedding day photos, while CinemaCake does its magic by conducting interviews with the bride and groom and family and friends to seamlessly accompany the images allowing clients to relive the wedding day as if it were happening all over again. The bride and groom take home their wedding photographs after the movie premiere allowing them to experience their wedding day again and again and to pass on their special moments to generations to come.  The photo film premiere is exclusively available to DiCicco clients.

Often, wedding photographers present your proofs in a small thumbnail proof book, on CD or with watermarks over your images which are seldom retouched. With Sarah DiCicco, your wedding experience is vastly different with proofs that are final images consisting of up-to 900 to 1200 4 x 6 custom retouched prints displayed in three leather albums. After all of the planning and time that you put into your wedding, the images are what you have to remember your special day.

The photo film premiere is an extraordinary experience for any couple, but it’s an ideal answer for couples whose friends and family weren’t able to attend their destination wedding. The premiere will allow them to experience the couple’s wedding day as if they were guests at the actual wedding.

“I am thrilled to be the first wedding photographer to offer this unprecedented new way to see your wedding day photos,” said wedding photographer, Sarah DiCicco.  “This is so much more than simply pictures put to music. This is truly a production worthy of the big screen.”

Erin Elizabeth Conroy of Newtown, PA and Thomas John Welling Jr. of Bronxville, N.Y recently experienced this star treatment.  They were married February 2, 2008 at St. Vincent Ferrer in New York City, followed by a reception at Manhattan’s Capitale. On June 1st, the couple were greeted by their names displayed on the marquee at the Anthony Wayne Cinema and poster images of the couple inside the theater lobby. Friends and family were on hand to feel all the emotion of the newlywed’s wedding day all over again.

Dave & Sheryl,

I can’t even begin to say how over the top the movie premier was!!!  The reason I tell everyone that you are the best because it is true! Your high level of quality and unwavering ability to create a true piece of art is priceless. Thank you for not just taking the time to work with me on this, but also your friendship and your ability to take it a step further!  Simply Amazing!

With all of our love, Sarah & Tony

Dear Dave,

After speaking to your wife last week, I decided to write to tell you how pleased we are with the wedding video.  Had the decision to have a video been mine, it would never have happened.  I had no desire to have it for posterity.  It was very important to our Dave, the groom.  We figured it was a good project for him, along with picking the band.  He did all the research and decided to go with CinemaCake.  Just as he picked the band because he was impressed with its’ leader, Dave picked another Dave who impressed him, to do the video.  We’re so very glad he did!

I have seen the completed video several times now and I cry every time!  I can’t believe how much I would have forgotten!  Until I saw the video, I was certain I had not seen the cake cutting, but there I am!  However, my favorite part is the Outtakes!  As you remember, we had some unique challenges!  How many wedding videos have unintentional fire trucks! And the footage in the elevator is priceless.  The procession from the Sofitel to Davio’s and the bridal party walking through downtown were both events we had not seen and would not have seen if not for video.

The biggest compliment I can give is that you were invisible.  Yet you managed to be everywhere and capture everything.  To me, that is the sign of a highly skilled, talented videographer.  Not once were we aware of you doing your work!  You were so unobtrusive that I don’t think I would recognize you! 

As you can tell, I am a video convert.  I now know that my previous experiences with “wedding video” was based on less professional work.  I know several brides-to-be and will be recommending that they have video.  Not just any video, but CinemaCake.

Thanks so much for an incredible finished product and flawless work the day of the wedding.  We’ll recommend you to anyone who’ll listen.

Hi Dave,

So I saw you the other week at the ASTRO meeting
zooming around the Accuray booth filming their launch of the 2006 Cyberknife. I was in from CA to attend the meeting with my client, Philips. I wanted to say hello but could tell you were busy. I swear you are EVERYWHERE!

Attached to the left is a shot Heather Fowler took of you strapped to the back of the golf cart.  She also has one of you on top of the limo bus—you go to great lenghts to get your shots!  In fact, I saw the one on your blog when you went up in the bucket. So funny.

Anyway, I hope all is well with you and Sheryl. Take care.

Best,
Stephanie
