We met Emily And Steve through a referral from JPod Productions’ Assistant Shooter and Feature Film Editor Mia Major. Emily and Mia have similar tastes when it comes to weddings and design, which made Emily a perfect fit for our latest Boston Wedding Film.

Emily and Steve were married at the always elegant and gorgeous Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Connecticut. Emily brought in a friend, Christine Cardot of HandyGerl, to design many elements of her wedding decor. Once you took Christine’s elements and combined them with the vision of Jackie Silverton at The Lord Thompson Manor, the wedding was destined to be flat out gorgeous. We always love the tablescapes at The Lord Thompson Manor, as Jackie’s designs are always elegant and timeless. The wedding day included a highly anticipated first look, personal vows, and a couch set-up (inspired from Pinterest) that was the feature of a quick, but amazing night photo session.

The newly married Mr. & Mrs. Sprofera hired some rock star vendors too, as they brought in the uber-talented Love and Perry Photography. After two weddings with Brittany Love and Shana Perry this fall, we are in love with their work, not to mention the collaborative environment we were able to create with them on the wedding day. That is a win-win for the couple. We also enjoyed the professionalism and atmosphere created by Keith Alan of Keith Alan Productions, and I’m always excited to see a Michelle Bohigian wedding cake at our weddings. Something Sweet by Michelle’s cakes are always beautiful, and always even more delicious. Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film from just south of the Massachusetts border in Thompson, Connecticut.

Amanda of Ready Set Film and I had an amazing time collaborating on this same day edit film for the September Boston Wedding Group (BWG) Meeting. The amount of time and efforts that all of the vendors (listed below) put in to making this meeting such a success is both inspiring and humbling.  The meeting was the BWG’s industry-wide meeting featuring keynote Speaker Stacie Francombe, of Inspired Smart Success, who gave a plethera of tips on how to get noticed and published by the media. Edna and her team from EFD Creative Event Planning & Design did a tremendous job creating an elegant multi-floor event. It was the second time we have worked with Edna in the past month and I have to say that I love her and Kacie’s attention to detail. Below is a quick two-minute Boston Same Day Edit Film of the event that was held at the beautifully renovated Marriot Courtyard Downtown on Tremont Street in Boston. The renovated ballroom is elegant and large enough to hold events of many sizes in the Theater District of Boston.

For some couples, it’s love at first sight. For Katie and Mike, love took a little time. But, once the timing was right, Katie and Mike became an amazing match. Their wedding trailer is the quick version of their love story that started in Pelham, New Hampshire, and continued into Boston, Massachusetts. We were bummed that Katie and Mike’s chocolate lab, Bella, wasn’t able to be a part of the day. But, no worries, we found a way to include her in their upcoming feature film.

This Boston couple chose to have a destination wedding in the Bershires of Massachusetts, as they chose the gorgeous and historic Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club as their backdrop. A little rain tried to dampen their day, but great couples, like Katie and Mike, shine despite the rain. Tricia McCormack of Tricia McCormack Photography and I had a great time photographing these two around the showers. We found a great little porch area in the center of Lenox that served as the perfect place to do some of the couples photo session. Carolyn Valenti of Queen Anne’s Lace created an elegant and timeless floral display in Cranwell’s main ballroom for Katie and Mike, before they danced all night to the Boston party band, Bear Fight. We can’t wait to expand this Berkshire wedding film into a feature film in the coming months.

Our latest Boston Wedding film features Sara and Matt, who came back to their home state of Massachusetts to get married at the 5-star Boston Mandarin Hotel on Boylston Street. The first word that comes to mind when you see these two together is sweet! Just watch their first look and you’ll quickly see the sweet, caring way about these two that makes them a great match.

It was one of those wedding days where everything felt right. Sara and Matt were married by Rabbi Shira Joseph during sundown on the Mandarin Oriental’s beautiful outdoor terrace. The elegance of the event continued from cocktail hour right into the reception in the hotel’s ballroom, which was lit beautifully and decorated even nicer. This wedding had everything from great speeches, to a saxophone playing groom, to a dessert bar including Philadelphia-styled pretzels.

The attention to detail in this wedding was unmatched thanks to Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara and her team from Unique Weddings by Alexis, as well as Jeff Watson’s team at the Mandarin Hotel. The Mandarin Oriental’s service is as good as it gets in the city of Boston. We got to work alongside photographers Tara and Ben from Hitched Studios who brought an awesome vibe to the day (see their pictures HERE).  Sara and Matt danced the night away to the Band Night Rhthym, which is going to make the dancing portion of their feature film a fun one to edit. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding video…
