The flaws, color and grainy format of Super 8 film now seem charming in light of the hyper-real qualities of HD. If you have your videographer shoot portions of your event on Super 8 film and then transfer it to a digital video, he or she can combine the aesthetic of simpler times with modern video technology. "There’s a warmth in film that’s hard to emulate with digital video," says Todd Gukelberger of Vintage Images, 203-374-9597, vinim.com, in Fairfield. "Film creates a sentimental atmosphere—there’s no substitute for it." Todd suggests using Super 8 film to highlight poignant moments during the ceremony, such as the bride’s processional or the couple’s recessional. Cost: $100 per reel (about 3 minutes’ runtime); general wedding packages start at $1,799.
