*first kiss films*

This past February I participated in Ottawa’s first indie wedding show Wed by Hand.   In my opinion there were a few vendors that really stuck out in creativity and professionalism.  Bridget Redmond of {First Kiss Films} is one of them.  Since my husband and I never had a cinema documentation of our special day, we plan on doing so when we renew our vows on our 10th anniversary {5 more to go}.  In the meantime I may just have to hire her for a small documentary of a jewellery photo shoot.  Bridget’s work is beautiful with a classy vintage feel.  In her own voice here is what to expect from {First kiss Films}.
Nothing compares to the richness of film – classic, gorgeous and decidedly flattering.  { First Kiss Films } are shot entirely on the beautiful and timeless medium of 8mm and 16mm film stock, in either colour and/or black and white, using traditional cinematic techniques. Your final 5 – 15 minute film will deliver an experience that transports you back to all the emotions you experienced providing an artful and nostalgic retelling of your wedding day. Set entirely to carefully selected music, your wedding film will be an heirloom that you and your family will cherish for generations to come.
Lead filmmaker Bridget Redmond explains the filmmaking journey: “To ensure your wedding film reflects your personality and tells your unique story, I prefer to meet with the bride and groom at least twice before your big day in order to get to know you, your tastes and expectations. During multiple meetings we discuss your film, plan locations, talk about your specific requests and any ‘must have’ shots you would like in the final edit. Each film is unique and the more I know about you, your family and all your wedding day details the better I can create a film that captures your unique story. Once the film is shot it is processed, digitally transferred and edited. When the edit is complete, you’ll receive two finished copies beautifully presented in a stylish DVD package.”
Bridget knows how excited newlyweds can be to see their wedding film so       {First Kiss Films} are available within 45 days of your event instead of the 90 day standard.

*post sangria networking event for wedding professionals*

So I wasn’t sure what to expect last night as this was my first networking event in the industry.  This was my second time having exposure in the wedding field and I am once again inspired to host an event with my new partner in creativity Erin Carmicheal designer/owner of full bloom floral design.  

Erin has an amazing eco-friendly approach to her work, here is a snip from her website describing the details in her own words…

Full Bloom Floral Design focuses on special events and weddings with an eco approach by using local Ontario product and recycled materials when we can. We are also happy to offer suggestions on how to make your event a green one.
The Eternal Tree
When using us for your wedding florals, Full Bloom has created The Eternal Tree in an effort to pay it back to the environment and to decrease our carbon footprint. Following your wedding we will plant a tree seedling in your honor to symbolize the eternal love and strength of your marriage. Via email, you will receive a photo and a map to where your tree is located so you are able to visit your Eternal Tree and watch it grow along with your marriage.
Reduce – Reuse – Recycle
We realize the power that flowers have and feel they can bring cheer to those who need it most. In lieu of guest favors, tell your guests that the flowers from your event will be donated to brighten someone’s day. Once your event is over, we will arrange for the flowers from your event to be sent with a personalized card in your honor to the organization of your choice.


Last night we both had that creative buzz starting for our event planned for early 2011.  All I am going to say is that there is so much to be seen that has not been seen as of yet…

*twice as much*

So as I’ve been making my jewellery, I’ve started designing as few collections at once, mostly due to the stone selections.  In this process I have officially decided and launched a sister brand, *blush by chelsy anne*.  This is all wedding jewellery and accessories. It wasn’t planned, but I think it’s definitely the right decision! Both my little boutiques will be on Etsy.  Not yet, please be patient! I’m still in the process of packaging and branding.  Soon my lovelies, soon!
