Our Story: The Film

I’ve been under the weather for a few days now with a sore throat and such.  Being sick is no fun, but luckily editing photos and writing a blog doesn’t take too much physical effort.  That means I’ve still been able to get work done–which is always good!

Today’s post doesn’t really have anything to do with work that I’ve done though.  Our dear friend, Brian Lawes (you’ve heard me mention him dozens of times here) is an extremely talented videographer and photographer.  He works for doing video things, and when he’s not doing that, he second shoots weddings with me and another friend of his.  I could go on and on about how great Brian is with a camera or as a friend, but I really want to get to the point here, so I’ll refrain :)

As a wedding gift to Colin and I, Brian put together a little video for us.  This was a collaborative effort, as our entire bridal party made trips to his work studio to be interviewed (because they’re all really wonderful people), and Brian has worked countless hours on putting it all together.  The video is of Colin and I telling a bit of our story leading up to when we got married and our friends talking about their relationships with us individually and as a couple.  Brian also shot some footage of us in Stillwater while I was still living there with Bethany and our friend, Jillian.  I’m giddy at the idea of sharing this video with our future children and grandchildren.  How cool would it be if you had something like this from your parents or grandparents?  So special.

A huge THANK YOU to all of our amazing bridal party for participating in this!  We adore you all and it means the world to Colin and I that you were willing to do this for us.  As none of you live near enough for us to see you as often as we’d like, we miss you all and hope to see you again soon.  We also pray that when we share this video with future generations of our family decades from now, we won’t have to explain to them who each of you are since you’ll still be in our lives (and our future family’s lives too).

Brian, thank you thank you thank you for all the work you put into this!  There are not enough words to describe how truly thankful we are for you.

And thank you, blog readers, for being willing to peek into our lives in this way–you are wonderful!

His Truly,

Mary O.
