Just the way they are

20 Sep

“If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I’d find a match.
If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I’ll make it better.
I’d buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.

Cause I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.”
~ Ingrid Michaelson, “The Way I Am”

I fell for Shannon & Mathieu the very first time I met them. They were all smiles, almost giggly together, and so loving and gentle with each other. It’s not often that the groom has as much to say at our first meeting as the bride. But after Mathieu watched a few of our films on-line he was really excited about our vintage films. And after getting to know the bride and groom to be and the elegant celebration they were planning, we were excited too.

Shannon & Mathieu are one of our favourite First Kiss couples and we loved working with them to create their vintage wedding film. We can’t wait to share it but before we do, here is the touching lovenote they sent our way:

“Dear Bridget,

Given that you create such personal films, it is probably a rarity that you get to see audience reactions as you would with a public viewing.  How I wish that you could have shared this very special moment with us – to see how your work touched our hearts. With the lights dimmed, Mat and I watched our film over and over…and over again.

Our film is absolutely beautiful, and more than we could ever have imagined. It captures the essence of our love – the sweet looks and tender moments, and is everything that words could never be. Adjectives to throw around: enchanting, timeless, distinctive, classic…..perfect!

We just wanted to let you know how very special we think you are. You have an extraordinary gift, and we are so grateful to have found you. Simply put…you are goodness and light, and we wish you and { First Kiss Films } continued success.

We are very much looking forward to having you document more of our special moments!!!  In fact, I may already have a few ideas……:o)

Warm Regards,

Shannon and Mathieu
