It was early summer of 2006 and I was working as a server at Olga’s Kitchen (worst place on the planet to work if you value your self esteem). We had the worst store manager you could ask for – the only thing missing from this guy’s wardrobe was an SS uniform with a skull and crossbones patch on the hat. Thankfully, we also had the sweetest – and I’m gonna come right out and say it – the hawtest (yes, I’m going to deliberately misspell the word because it’s warranted) assistant manager ever.
When Robyn transferred, it made us all wanna quit. Who the F would want to be stuck with just Arnold to deal with, after all? So I made a special goodbye video, with interviews from the entire crew, for Robyn as a going away present. The result was a special request to shoot her wedding video. I accepted, but since I had a crap camera, I knew I’d have to make a sizable investment in order to make it worth their while. So I did what any poor boy from the ‘burbs would do: I asked my grandparents for the money to buy a good camera.
The result of the wedding wasn’t a masterpiece by any means, but for a first attempt, I could have done a heck of a lot worse.
First, we’ll take a look at my first ever wedding dance montage, and then take a look at another one, done three years later to the same song. Let me know if you think things have gotten better.
