We live in an age where we store our memories on social media. In fact, we’ve almost become programmed to believe that we’re making a note of all the special moments in our life because we can share pictures, videos and statuses on platforms such as Facebook or Twitter.

Weddings are very important and memorable events in our life. In the past, preserving those precious memories wasn’t as easy as it is now with modern technology. You might be thinking back to your own wedding and wishing you could show your children your wedding video to complement the beautiful photos you have.
