20th wedding anniversary

Today marks the 20th anniversary of marrying my wife, Jennifer. My how time flies... it seems only yesterday when I posted about our 15th wedding anniversary — read that post from five years ago for the story of how we met, got married, and more.

I wanted to do something special to mark this milestone, so a couple of weeks ago I did something I've been meaning to do for decades: I edited the videotape footage of our wedding into a short movie (about 5 minutes).

It begins with part of a TV news report that aired shortly after our wedding. As that previous blog post described, we met via the internet in an age when that was new and rare, so we were interviewed by local TV and newspaper reporters.

The movie then has clips from the ceremony and reception, which were both held near the beach at one of our favorite spots, Long Bay Beach in Auckland, New Zealand. It concludes with some scenes from our honeymoon in the credits.

Take a look:

20 happy years, full of love and adventures. Happy anniversary Jenn; I love you!
