Kyle and Melissa King came up with an adorable alternative to your standard wedding video: a film-strip, stop motion-style video using thousands of photos.
When the pair was initially set to wed back in May, they were in need of a last-minute photographer, New York Daily News reports. Luckily for the couple, one of Kyle's groomsmen knew a commercial photographer, Steve Thackson, who happened to shoot weddings. When Thackson went to photograph the barn bash, he approached it how he would any job: with fast paced clicks and thousands of proofs.

The newlyweds ended up with more than 3,000 photographs. Kyle, who works at a video editing studio, saw the pictures and began editing them down to share on social media with friends and family. But as he was sifting through all of the proofs, he realized they'd make for an amazing animated video.
The result, above, showcases friends, family and the wedding planner putting the final touches to their nuptials in an Atlanta suburb. Everything from the ceremony set-up to the band belting it out at the reception and the cake cutting is captured in a lively and unique way.
The best part? Stolen moments that may not as easily be highlighted in a traditional wedding video — like the mother-of-the-bride and bride pre-ceremony, the dad giving his girl away, and a quick look between bride and groom from afar — are placed front-and-center in this animated showcase. Think of it as a longer, more finessed Flipagram for friends and family to watch and share!
