Inspired by his distaste for cheesy, and often horrible-sounding wedding videos — you know the kind: video over public domain wedding music and, if you’re lucky, some crappy audio of a toast — Morgan Kirkham started Real Wedding Films. Morgan’s wedding films are so amazing that I invented the “Real Wedding Films challenge.” I dare you take it.
