We were supposed to leave our love of Legos behind with our report cards and strict bedtimes, but that’s proven to be easier said than done. With their majorly impressive stores and the widely entertaining movie, those little plastic pieces have proven to be a big part of our adult lives. For newlyweds Mindy and Cory Polacek, that sentiment couldn’t ring any more true.
The adorable 13-minute video the couple crafted for their wedding documents their entire love story — from when they first met in 2009 to when they finally tied the knot in April of 2016. The lego versions of Mindy and Cory reenact their long courtship, love of concerts and even their semi-awkward first kiss. Mindy tells us the video took 300 hours, 6 months and around 10,000 photos to make.
Why Legos? Mindy says, “Shortly after we got engaged, Cory had mentioned he missed playing with his favorite childhood toys, so it sparked the idea of using his LEGOs to make the video.” Throughout the film you can spot a stop-motion New Pornographers concert and a shot-for-shot Lego version of the Hall and Oates dance sequence from 500 Days of Summer. Look close and you also might find an ode to Ferris Bueller and Scooby Doo.
“It’s a little ridiculous, but it was the only way to tell our story,” Mindy concludes. Go ahead and grab some popcorn, sit back and try not to cry over this crazy creative stop-motion mini film.
