I have heard as well that she disposed of it afterward and did not discuss the incident after it happened.

As the film was made by the Biograph Company of which Daniel's father, H.N. Marvin, was president, Mary may not have owned the movie, nor possessed the only copy. A great many Biograph pictures survive from this period and although the wedding film was not a commercial vehicle, it might be among the collections of George Eastman House or the Library of Congress, Someone interested might want to contact archivists at those facilities and request a search. Since stills of the movie were published at the time, photo agencies might have copies of those as well.
