Laura & Ryan’s gorgeous country chic farm wedding

18 Mar

A bride and her attendants in white,

Cowboy boots, bow ties, and handkerchiefs,

An outdoor ceremony under a huge tree,

Chandeliers, lace, and a barn reception,

And a huge rainbow filling the sky.

This was Laura & Ryan’s wedding…

After delivering their wedding film to this adorable couple, the bride, Laura, sent this lovenote: “Me and Ry are soooo in love with the video!!!! Thank you!

Thank you so much for capturing all the special moments so we can re watch them over and over and share them with everyone. Thank you!!!!!!”

Amanda & Brandon’s romantic Dr. Who themed wedding

5 Mar

Amanda and Brandon’s beautiful Dr. Who themed wedding took place at Saunders Farm in Munster and their love of Doctor Who was elegantly infused in every detail. Then, only four months later, the newlyweds were one of 50 couples selected from around the world to renew their vows at a group wedding ceremony on the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who in London, England! What an incredible year for Amanda and Brandon!

Love in space and time

26 Feb

A wedding, for most people, is a once-in-a-lifetime event. But last year Amanda and Brandon said ‘I Do’ not once, but twice!

Dr. Who wedding

A father’s touching words…four years later

21 Feb

Four years ago I spent an afternoon filming an adorable family at their home. After being reminded of our session years ago, the father of this family watched the film again and sent me this moving email…

Lifestyle films on 16mm

Hello Bridget,

Not long ago I thought about the film you made for us. A friend just asked me to give them your name because they had remembered it too. I probably have not watched it in over a year.

I just went and watched it again tonight and proceeded to start crying uncontrollably. It has taken me about 20 minutes to regain myself. It is a treasure. A document of the most wonderful, incomprehensibly valuable thing in my life. A living snapshot of my home, the kind of home we strive to create, filled with smiles and laughter and discoveries and above all, love. I think for quite a while I have lost that vision a bit. We need more smiles and spontaneous laughter around here, and I think this might be the inspiration I need to simplify and remember what is truly important.

Anyway, all this just to say thank you, so, so much for doing this for us. It is one of the greatest of my possessions, if I might even call it that. I look around at all the things in my life and what would I really want to keep if I had to give it all away? Well, I can say that it would probably fit in a small box. But your film would be in it.

I think we are due for another one soon. Are you free to come back and see us again this June? I really hope so.

Wow. It is such a gift to receive notes like these from clients and to be asked to return to make a sequel. Now that I have a little one of my own I truly understand how precious memories like these can be.

Looking back at some recent favourite moments on film

17 Dec

As another year comes to an end I’d like to share with you some highlights from a few of our favourite wedding film moments (which includes some clips we haven’t even posted on our blog yet!)

Happy holidays to all our wonderful friends, clients and film lovers!

Love, Bridget and { First Kiss Films }
