A blockbuster wedding invite

Making the Internet rounds is a very funny “save the date” video for the October 2010 wedding of Jeff Wong and Erin Martin, made as a parody of trailers for big-budget movies. The couple met at the Claremont Colleges. According to their website, they met in 2000 when he was an engineering student at Harvey Mudd and she was majoring in psychology at Scripps. Awwww.

The video prompted pieces on CBS’ “Early Show,” NBC Channel 4 and Huffington Post. I heard about it from reader Don J.

    I’ve seen a zillion links to the video, but I had no idea it had a Claremont connection!

    Very nicely done and with subtitles. Vietnamese is it?

    I would have delayed the ceremony a day to wed on 10-10-10 but that’s just me. OCD, dontcha know.

    Wonder if this means anyone who views the video is invited to attend.

    A gift certificate to a couples spa so that they can just do nothing.

    I love it, thanks for posting this. But, it makes the bookmark Jason and I made look super chintzy. I thought “bookmark the date” was clever …
