Monthly Archives: October 2011

As the fall weddings wind down and the winter (yep, I said it) editing season gets under way, we should have a barrage of clips being released over the coming months. The stretch of clips will start with a couple of wedding movie trailers being released this week and next week.

Jess and Seth’s were the early birds who booked my most coveted Sunday date in JPod history. They were one of five couples who were hoping to book the date. Jess was actually the first bride to book a date for 2011 and that should give you an idea that this bride was organized. I like that! Mr. and Mrs. Hopkins were married in downtown Pittsfield at First Baptist Church with a reception at the neighboring Crown Plaza. We had a beautiful photo shoot in the Pittsfield State Forest. The first look gave a sunny view of the valley and then we moved to a great, shadier location near one of the highest natural bodies of water in Massachusetts – Berry Pond.

Great vendors were all around us as Melissa Coe of Melissa Coe Photography came back to her home side of the state and DJ Dan Cavanaugh of And the Beat Goes On DJ rocked it out as always. Janet Brennan was awesome at the Crown Plaza while Cakes by Dai created a beautiful cake which gets a close-up cameo in the trailer. The dress came from Special Day at Deidre’s which Jessica raved about on her wedding day.

I decided to go mainstream with the music as a change of pace from some of our previous wedding movie trailers. This is a song I have been looking to use for a while and it fit perfectly for Jess and Seth as the anticipation of the day, two years in the making, was the focus of this trailer. More cinematic music will is on tap for next week, so check back in and enjoy the show….

It’s time to turn our focus on some of the vendors that provide the details of the wedding day. The florist I always turn to in the Western Massachusetts area is Durocher Florist and they are my vendor of the month for October. I trust them so much that I used them for my own wedding nine years ago, and they are still my ‘go to’ florist for special deliveries to my wife.

It all starts with wedding coordinator Heather Sullivan who is one of those people in the wedding business that “gets it”. I’ve seen roses, gerber daisies, orchids and hydrangeas all look fantastic in Heather’s amazing bouquets, boutonnieres, or table displays. Heather will make you feel comfortable from the first meeting right up to your wedding day. Durocher Florist is always dependable and on time with their wedding day flowers. Since going into business in 2005, I have never come across a late or incorrect delivery, or an unsatisfied bride who used Durocher as their florist.

Durocher Florist will always tell you to clip, clip, clip! Those wedding magazines may have a lot of information that does not pertain to you, but clipping out bouquets, flower girl ideas, boutonnieres, center pieces and other flower arrangements will help you create a vision for your wedding day. Look below for some samples of Durocher’s outstanding work.
