Happy Weekend, LBBers! We’ve got a special cinematic treat for you this morning and I’m going to give you a little advice. If you’re already likely to cry at this New Orleans highlight film, just for the simple fact that it is a highlight film and that alone can bring a tear to your eye (guilty), don’t read the description from the talented cinematographers, BRIDE FILM, until after you watch it. If you’d like the shed an extra couple tears at a little butterfly’s appearance in the film, by all means, read the description first. But don’t say I didn’t warn you. And when you’re ready for more like this (it’s the weekend after all – you have all day!), click here for more beautiful, cinematic work!

From BRIDE FILM … We had the great pleasure of becoming friends with Bridgette and Kevin. Bridgette is a special events coordinator in New Orleans and Kevin is anathletic trainer at a local high school.

When we first met to do their “how we met” piece for the rehearsal dinner, I was really impressed by how well they knew each other.  Each question I asked, similarly phrased, was answered with remarkable accuracy to the other.  They really understood and knew everything about each other because of how they communicated before actually dating.

They had exchanged emails.  Kevin would write from Mississippi and Bridgette would respond.  This cycle of countless email exchanges and no phone interaction proved somewhat puzzling until finally Bridgette replied per email, “Hey are you gonna call?”  And so this initiated a their first date.

Naturally, I thought their story of love would be pretty apparent.  Equally as important as Kevin and Bridgette’s story is our other main character, Cayden, Bridgette’s son.  This 5 year old, supercharged with energy, was the real star of the show.  This little guy was tearing up the dance floor the entire night.

Lastly, you will see on the film that a butterfly attaches itself to Bridgette’s dress during the ceremony.  She immediately burst into tears and smiles.  All of her programs were marked with butterflies in remembrance of her brother.
