Chronicle Craft: Handmade Weddings Book Trailer

It is always amazing to see how much energy and work goes into a short two-minute video. The long days and hard work definitely paid off for this adorable Handmade Weddings book trailer. The trailer was shot in the Chronicle Books lobby—when you wheel away the bookshelves the space makes for a great blank canvas. Here are some behind the scenes photos from the day of the shoot and the adorable finished project.

Ryan sets up the ‘studio’ space.

Yarn vases from the Handmade Weddings book filled with flowers and waiting for their big moment on screen.

The authors walk on set very, very slowly so the action looks longer in the video.

The authors and Ryan check out the progress.

Big thanks to authors Sabrina and Eunice Moyle and Shana Faust for all their time and energy on this project, Ryan Khavari for his awesome directing, shooting, and editing skills, and Susie Ghahremani for the perfect song by her band Snuggletooth.

    Wow, I love this trailer! It's funny — normally, I would never think of featuring a wedding planning book on my site, but this is actually the perfect fit for college students (and recent grads) looking for an authentic, beautiful way to plan a wedding without breaking the bank (I mean, we ARE college students, after all). I'll definitely have to look around for this book.

    Is the book just decor, or does it include food as well?

    Glad you like the trailer! The book does not include any food recipes but is packed with a ton of craft projects for throwing all sorts of events from weddings to dinner parties.
