Monthly Archives: June 2013

The first time we met Miriam and Dan, it was via an hour-long skype meeting from their New York City apartment. The couple was well prepared and very thorough in the initial meeting, but what I remember most about the meeting was a great connection that was established throughout the evening. I love a couple that has their act together and I could see early on that Mirian and Dan had the makings for a great Boston wedding video. This Boston Wedding video is about a groom who doubted that there may be a perfect romantic match for him, until he met a girl named Miriam.

Miriam and Dan chose an iconic Boston theme for their wedding weekend, which started with a rehearsal dinner at the Anthem Kitchen + Bar in Faneuil Hall. With a T-train place card display that included reception tables named after train stops, to a photo session that crossed the city to numerous famous Boston sites, the wedding had a true, iconic Boston feel. The continuous activities from the Tish, Ketubah signing, pre-ceremony reception, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were littered with special touches that made the day exciting to film. There were plenty of great personal and family touches by the bride, as the lace from her mother’s wedding dress was stitched into Miriam’s veil, the pearls were designed and built throughout the milestones of Miriam’s childhood, the tallit of the Chuppah was sewn together with several different connections to each family, and the cake cutting utensils dated back to Miriam’s grandparents.

The weekend started with an emotional rehearsal dinner at Anthem Kitchen + Bar in Faneuil Hall in Quincy Market. The Royal Sonesta Boston, neighboring the Charles River, was the setting for most of the wedding day events. We had a fun time traveling on the Original Party Trolley with Miriam and Dan and their wedding party in our afternoon photo session with Randall + Theresa from Garnick-Moore Photography. The ceremony was eloquently planned with the help of Paula Marrero from Marrero Events and romantically lit by Paul and Fritz Bosch from Boston Event Lighting. As Boston Wedding videographers, it was a fun wedding to film.

June is the month that we have dedicated to getting the Boston Wedding Video blog back on a regular schedule. We start the month off with the old tradition of honoring some of the “Best Vendors” around New England. We work with a variety of wedding vendors every weekend and we like to share some of the wedding professionals that brides should consider when planning their wedding weekend.

Boston Wedding Planner

First up is a wedding planner that we worked with while shooting a Boston wedding video at the Royal Sonesta last month. Marrero Events was brought in to organize and manage an extremely detailed wedding plan in the capital city of Massachusetts.

Marrero Events is owned by Paula Marrero and she comes with a plethora of experience planning high-end events.  Paula burst on the Boston wedding planning scene as she managed events for Celebrity Chef Todd English. Now Paula heads a company that plans events from casually elegant to absolutely breathtaking. Marrero Events offers event planning services from Day of Coordinating to Complete Wedding Planning.  

At last month’s wedding, Paula was joined by one of her new assistants, Courtney Graham. Paula and Courtney organized the wedding activities, which spanned well over 12 hours, meticulously. The wedding had an iconic Boston theme with details including a rehearsal dinner in Faneuil Hall, a T-train place card display, and a photo session that crossed the city to famous Boston sites. The continuous activities from the Tish, Ketubah signing, pre-ceremony reception, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were littered with special touches that Paula and Courtney made sure hit their mark. If you need to take the stress out of your wedding day, I would highly recommend you contact Marrero Events ( for your event. A Boston wedding video from this wedding will be on our blog before the end of the month, as the couple chose to add a highlight film to their feature film investment.
