What we loved most about creating their wedding film: Blair and Kyle had such a special rehearsal dinner. We laughed and we cried along with them as their family and friends shared hilarious and thoughtful stories about the journey that led them to their wedding day. We couldn't even begin to cover all the thoughtful and poignant things that were said that night in a 5 minute video (thank goodness they'll have the complete toast edit!).
A bit of wisdom from the wedding: If you are a nearly-wed please, please, please consider having your rehearsal dinner toasts filmed! We'd love to do it for you so that you have crystal clear audio and a beautiful image, but if that just isn't an option set up a home video camera on a tripod close enough so you can be sure those precious words are captured. Weddings are the one time in our culture where we publicly express how much we treasure the important people in our lives. 50 years from now those toasts will be priceless.
While we were editing: James and I have been thinking a lot about time recently. Sometimes it feels like there is never enough time, doesn't it? It's easy to see how we can start to believe that time is against us. If we aren't careful from sunup to sundown we frame our lives around racing the clock... But what good is that? What good is believing there is never enough time? Doesn't that thinking just kill your creative energy? And isn't time just a concept? It's a perspective we use to understand gravity, and the earth circling the sun, and the length of a day, and how to get to the party on time. I was talking to a wise friend the other day and she mentioned that the concept of time was established to bring order - not stress. Time is not against us.
