This is a reminder why hiring a wedding day videographer is highly recommended. Newlywed Amy Schumer released the first video from her wedding to Chris Fischer on Wednesday, February 28, sharing one of the most intimate moments from the nuptials with fans on Instagram.
The Train Wreck actress posted the never-before-seen footage from her nuptials, which was captured by Jeff & Mollie Weddings, a documentary-style videography team based in Savannah, Georgia. “Thank you @jeffandmollyweddings for this beautiful video,” the bride expressed. “And @thegetdownboys for the dope ass rendition of ‘rainbow connection’ and my friends and fam my husband!”
Schumer’s videographer chose a sweet cover of the tune made popular by the 1979 Muppet Movie. The clip gives fans a sense of the venue and the landscape—the couple married at a private home in Malibu nestled along the Pacific coast—as well as the intimate quality of the overall wedding itself.
The creative team beautifully captured the couple’s wedding vows, starting with Fischer’s declaration of commitment to his wife. “I love you Amy,” he says. “You bring happiness and joy to every part of my life. You are the best thing that ever happened to me. I love you with every piece of my heart.”
She then adorably leans in to give him a quick peck on the lips. “People are wondering, Why the rush? Why so fast,’” Schumer adds in her portion of the vows. “And it’s because I truly cannot wait to be your wife. I love you.”
Notable guests featured in the montage of clips include Larry David, Jennifer Lawrence and Chelsea Handler.
“His vows were stunning,” Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight last week. “It’s when two people really love each other and they really mean it, it shows, and it was a beautiful ceremony and an amazing time. I couldn’t be happier for them.”
“It was very sudden,” she said in the same interview. “But it was, I was sobbing the whole [time].”
