James and I shared a new experience at Richard and Shirmil's wedding. Though we've worked side by side with Sarah Jane of all Events perfect, DJ Battle of One Sound Entertainment, and shot many weddings at the Ritz Carlton, it was our first time shooting at the top of the building. The natural light coming through the windows made shooting at this hotel different from every other wedding we'd recorded there in the past.
Beyond the geeky photographic excitement, we got to witness the union of two people who forged a relationship over the past 11 years. When we interviewed Richard and Shirmil it was interesting to note that they both realized early on that they could be right for each other. Richard tells us in the trailer; "five minutes into the conversation I was hooked". And Shirmil's recollection is similar - after only four phone calls she was quite sure that she'd found Mr. Right.
So why did it take nearly 11 years for them to tie the knot? Ha, for that you'll have to watch their full story, which we'll be releasing in a couple of weeks. But, I will tell you this much, it's a great story of growth and patience and should serve as a reminder to all of us about the importance of "intentional patience".
Check out their trailer, I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
