Jonathan and Lindsey both love flip books, so they knew that they wanted to incorporate one into their wedding somehow. THey decided to film a proposal scene so that they could turn the footage into an actual flip book. At the time of the filming, Jonathan and Lindsey were not yet engaged, so when Lindsey asked him if he could speak the lines “will you marry me?”, Jonathan replied, “I’m not going to say it out loud until someday when the time is right.”
With that said, they ran through their proposal scene five times in a row. The first time was a mess, but by the fourth time they had nailed it. On their fifth and final take, Jonathan said aloud, “Will you marry me?” Lindsey melted. She didn’t know whether it was for real or simply a part of the act. “Yes!” she exclaimed.
Most of this flip book is from the moment before the real proposal. Jonathan turned the footage into a flip book so that they could film and e-mail it to their wedding guests. They even handed out flip books as favours for the wedding.
