This bride is so horrified by her own wedding video, she’s suing her videographer for $122,000 in damages.
26-year-old Monica Nikchemny walked down the aisle to marry the love of her life, Felix Komrash, 33, in September 2012. The wedding video arrived a whole year later. Now, Monica and her father are still caught in a legal battle with wedding media company Visualaz who, she claims, ruined all her beautiful memories with weird sound effects and fake applause tracks.
“When I watched my wedding video it really sounded like I was watching an episode of ‘Seinfeld,’” she said. “It really was ridiculous.”
A court in America heard Monica describe the video as “The worst thing in the world.”
She elaborates on her emotional state after watching this hideous monstrosity of a film: “I was really, absolutely hysterical and I almost had a nervous breakdown.”
Intense, right? This video must be seriously atrocious.
We’ve tracked it down.
We’ve got the video.
We just don’t really know what to make of it.
True to Monica’s claims, it’s a montage of cheesy moments: close-ups of the dress, the moment the groom saw the bride for the first time, snippets of the maid of honour‘s speech. It’s all about family and love and romance and tule.
But here’s the awkward question: Isn’t that exactly what wedding videos are meant to be? A collage of gorgeous moments?
Watch it, and let us know what you think. Is Monica right; is this the worst thing in the world? Or is it a pretty standard wedding video?
As far as we can tell, it has all the elements of a wedding vid…
Because the allegations against this wedding video and its creator have been so strong – “the worst thing in the world” and “really ridiculous” – we thought we’d better go through it frame by frame.
