When Daniel and Ilana tied the knot in Guatemala City earlier this year, the couple wanted to create a modern-day time capsule that would allow them to relive the day.

丹尼尔与伊拉娜于今年初在危地马拉城喜结连理,这对新人想利用现代科技,创造一颗能带他们重温大喜之日的时间胶囊。

"As we started to plan the wedding, it became clear we needed something that could truly capture everything about the day, in a way we could enjoy many times over," said Daniel, who declined to share the couple's last name.

“当我们开始策划婚礼时,我们就清楚意识到我们想要捕捉那一天的所有细节,并且能够不断重温那一天的美好记忆,”不愿意透露姓氏的丹尼尔如是说道。

In fact, the newlyweds have re-experienced their wedding several times by watching it back in virtual reality. The company hired Aventura, Florida-based startup YouVisit to capture 360-degree footage and turn it into something that virtually transports them back to that day.

实际上,这对新婚夫妇已经通过虚拟现实(VR)回顾了数次当日的情境。这对新人请来了总部位于佛罗里达州阿文图拉的新兴科技公司YouVisit,让他们捕捉婚礼现场的360°全息景图,并将其转化为可让人身临其境的虚拟图景。

"My wife, who has watched the video many times already, cries every time," Daniel said. "No matter how much we see it, there's always something we hadn't noticed before. These are things that would have gone unnoticed because we were so wrapped up in the moment, but it feels like a whole new day every time we step into the virtual environment."

“我的妻子已经回顾录像多次了,每次重温都忍不住感动落泪。”丹尼尔说道,“无论我们再怎么重复看,总会发现一些新鲜事物。这些细节都是我们当日不曾留意到的,因为彼时我们正沉醉在自身的巨大幸福中,而虚拟现实给我们机会重温当日,每一次踏入情境都有全新的体验。”

A small team from the professional VR filming service attended the wedding and set up cameras at specific spots throughout the grounds. YouVisit then compiled the footage and released it online, so the couple could share it with anyone with access to a desktop computer, mobile phone or VR headset.

这家专业VR技术服务公司派出一组工作人员参加婚礼,并在现场的几个特殊地点放置摄像头。YouVisit随后对全息图景进行汇编并在线上发布成果,只要有电脑、手机或VR头盔,任何人都能与这对新人分享他们当日的欢笑与泪水。

Technology has always played a key role in their relationship. When Daniel spotted Ilana on Tinder nearly two years ago -- and she didn't return his "swipe right" -- he was able to track her down after remembering they once met at a friend's wedding. He ultimately got her phone number and asked her out.

科技一直在二人的亲密关系中扮演举足轻重的角色。大约两年前,丹尼尔在Tinder(手机交友应用)上关注了伊拉娜——然而她并没有“右键通过好友申请”——后来他想起两人曾共同出席过一位朋友的婚礼,于是便找到了她。丹尼尔最终成功要到了她的电话,并与之约会。

"The ability to capture personal moments in VR is a trend that has been growing exponentially, particularly as 360 cameras are becoming mainstream," YouVisit cofounder Abi Mandelbaum told CNNMoney. "As a fully immersive medium, VR has the ability to completely shift how we tell stories, both on a corporate level through business marketing but also a personal and social level."

“利用VR技术捕捉生活精彩瞬间是大势所趋,特别是当360°全景拍摄已慢慢成为常态,消费者对此的需要更呈指数倍增长。”YouVisit创始人阿比·曼德尔鲍姆告诉CNN财经栏目记者,“VR作为一种全方位的仿真媒介,无论是在企业营销层面,或是在个人或社会层面,都能彻底改变人类传统的叙事方式。”

YouVisit has produced more than 1,000 interactive VR experiences, from music festivals and theater performances to athletic and corporate events. While filming a custom VR experience is costly -- a YouVisit package starts at $10,000 -- the company offers free access to its platform called Experience Builder, which allows users to create their own VR experiences by uploading 360-degree videos and photos.

截至目前,YouVisit已生成逾1000个交互虚拟现实体验场景,从音乐节、剧场演出到体育盛事、企业活动,题材不一而足。尽管拍摄定制虚拟现实场景价格昂贵——YouVisit的制作套餐起步价高达一万美金——但这家公司开设了一个名为“体验构筑者”的平台,可供网友上传自己拍摄的360°影像和照片,免费制作个性化的虚拟现实场景。

The overall process for developing Daniel and Ilana's wedding VR experience, from conceptualizing to final editing, took about 2 to 3 months. The couple has since shown it to friends and family members who weren't able to make it to the destination wedding. The pair also hopes to show it to their children one day.

从精心构思到最终编辑,丹尼尔和伊拉娜的婚礼虚拟还原场景制作历时两到三个月。制作完成后,这对幸福的夫妇将成果展示给了未能参加他们婚礼的朋友和家人。他们希望有朝一日也能让自己的孩子们“参加”他们的婚礼。

VR isn't the only creative use of technology that couples are using to get unique wedding footage -- some have even hired drones to take aerial footage of the grounds or snuck a GoPro(GPRO, Tech30) into a bouquet for an intimate angle of a bride's walk down the aisle.

新婚夫妇并非只有通过VR才能获取独特的婚礼录像——有些新人租用了无人机航拍婚礼现场,另一些则偷偷把GoPro相机(GPRO,Tech30)藏在花束里,以便近距离拍摄新娘步入婚礼殿堂的全程。

Technology is helping couples cut down on overall wedding costs, too. For example, Bloomerentallows couples to share floral arrangements with others getting married nearby, which cuts down on cost, considering about 10% of the average wedding budget is spent on flowers used only for a few hours.

科技还能让新人省下一笔婚礼开销。比如,鲜花租赁应用(Bloomerent)就能让同在附近、同在一天举行婚礼的新人共用鲜花。想到以往婚礼中百分之十的预算都用在只摆设数小时的鲜花上,这款应用无疑大大节省了一笔开支。

While capturing a wedding in virtual reality may not be at the top of a couple's priority list, especially when it comes to limited budgets, Daniel said remembering the day was more important than splurging on other areas.

尽管用VR还原婚礼场景不是大多数新人的心愿首位,尤其是在预算有限的情形下,丹尼尔还是选择用这种独有的方式储存当日的记忆。他表示,将钱挥霍于此比挥霍于别处更有意义。

"The takeaway for us was not so much to be leveraging innovative technology, but to be able to capture this magical day in Guatemala and to go back and visit whenever we want."

“对于我们来说,这种创新技术本身并不重要,重要的是我们找到了一种途径来记录我们在危地马拉那美妙梦幻的一天,只要我们愿意,随时都可以‘故地重游’。”
