Kim & Jonathan’s sweet sugar shack wedding in Quebec

3 Jun

The wedding film I am sharing today is absolutely filled with beauty and love.

K+J 2015

And the reaction from the bride and groom after watching their film is possibly the most moving response I have ever received:

“We are in absolute awe of your talent. How is possible that we could love our wedding day even more after seeing it through your eyes?

Your artistic instinct is flawless. You were able to capture not a simple record of how everything looked, but how it felt to be there. The feelings that watching your film has stirred (time and time again with each viewing) are everything. Thank you for telling our love story so beautifully. There are no words to describe our gratitude.”

Kim & Jonathan, love you guys, and huge congratulations to you both. Thank you for your friendship and the honour of creating this film for you…

The very first wedding at Evermore Weddings & Events

2 Apr

Here’s an extra special sneak peak of a stunning wedding which took place last September at a very special new venue…
evermore wedding
Because this week we not only have images from J&J’s vintage film as well as their feedback, but a wedding film trailer to share with you!

We crafted two films for Janice & Joel, and these are the sweet words they sent us:
“Well, that was amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you, the film is beautiful. You brought tears to both Joel & I.  You captured the venue and all it’s charm and energy wonderfully. We’re so very very happy with your work and how you caught all of these special moments – we will cherish this film forever. Thank you so very much.
Amazing work and cannot wait to get back on the couch with a glass of wine and watch our movie :)”

A Luxurious Fairmont Wedding

11 Feb

A year before Amanda & Anthony celebrated their wedding at Fairmont Château Laurier, we met them at Engage Ottawa, a boutique bridal show. Little did we know that we would be filming their spectacular wedding at the very same venue less than one year later.

Some words of thanks from the newlyweds:

“We are in love with our wedding video, we have watched it 1000 times!!! Thank you so much for making us the most beautiful video and thank you for getting it to us over the holidays, our family really enjoyed it!! We are so thankful, you are very talented and we love your work!

Amanda and Anthony!!”

Love as bright as ever

15 Jan

Kizil & Sean were married at Stonefields this past October. What a treat is was to finally create a wedding film at this venue and for such a loving and cool couple!

Knowing most newlyweds ideally want to share their wedding with family over the holidays I worked extra hard to have this film ready before Christmas. The day after Kixil & Sean received their film the bride sent me this lovely note – what a sweet gift it was to receive on Christmas Eve!



Sean and I have watched the video at least 10 times since yesterday. You made our wedding look so beautiful. We cannot express how much we love it. You are truly talented and we are so glad you captured our wedding on film.You were a treat to work with from start to finish. You were nothing but professional and easily reachable (especially through my innumerable and probably annoying questions). The day of the wedding, we were all so surprised how undetectable you were. I mean this in the best way possible. You were not intrusive at all, but you captured EVERYTHING! How did you do it?

Sean and I are so glad that we choose you as our filmmaker. Film as a medium has the capability to capture complete moments, sometimes, the moments need time to develop. You captured all those moments and combined them so beautifully into a complete summary of the day. Not only did you capture the excitement of our family and friends, but you were able to grab private genuine moments. Our film was exceptionally edited, there was not one bad frame. Start to finish it was flawless. Bridget, you are a very talented woman.

Finally, I want to thank you for finishing our video before Christmas. What a great gift it was to share our special day with family and friends. You went above and beyond to find a server to host it online for everyone to see. I’m pretty sure my mother has been playing it on loop since I sent her the link.

Again, Sean and I very grateful for your work. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends.

Two brides, one love

28 Nov

These beautiful brides were married at an outdoor ceremony at Stanley’s Olde Maple Lane Farm on the most perfect summer day you could imagine.

two brides Jen & Jess received their vintage wedding film yesterday evening. I received an email this morning from Jen saying, “We watched the film four times in a row before going to bed last night. It was beautiful. Thank you so, so much. You did an amazing job… It really captured the essence of our day.”

A breathtaking NHL wedding

29 May

Oh my, do we have a treat to share with you! The vintage film we created for an NHL star is soon to be featured right here…it’s a wedding we’ll be talking about for a very long time. Soon, you’ll see why.

The beautiful bride and groom were one of the loveliest I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I was honoured they chose { First Kiss Films } to film their amazing celebration. They even exclusively asked me and my team to film the bridal and groom preparations the morning of the wedding – not even their official photographer was allowed to be there!

The incredible couple loved the film we created for them and emailed this note:

“Hi Bridget!!!! Oh my goodness, the film is absolutely stunning! You have done an incredible job, you included all the beautiful details, people and more importantly moments. I watched it with my family when they were here visiting and we loved it. I’ve watched it over and over myself since then. It is so special and I am so thankful to have found you to do this for us. It was everything I hoped it would be. Thank you so much for all your hard work and love you out into this project. Lots of love!!!”
