A while back, we had a vendor of the month feature on our blog. In the spring and fall, we had so many great professionals to write about. But, we would have to wait months sometimes to share the love, because there was only one wedding professional each month. Therefore, we are reintroducing the feature on our blog, but this time it will be called the Vendor Spotlight. Now, we can share some of the best professionals in the wedding industry in a timely manner.

So, who got our juices flowing again? It was Matt and Liz of Hinkley Photo out of New Hampshire. We worked with this dynamic, married duo a few weeks ago at Church Landing on the edge of Lake Winnipesaukee. If we have never worked with a photography company before, we always try and reach out to photographers beforehand to introduce ourselves. Well, Matt beat me to the punch. The pre-wedding conversation was everything it was supposed to be: productive, cooperative and professional. I knew we were going to have a good day that Saturday.

Sure enough, the wedding day came and the two of us worked in unison creating a great product for our couple. We shared ideas, hustled side-by-side and laughed throughout the day.  Matt and Liz even helped us with a camera issue we had come up during the day. We borrowed their Canon 5Diii a few times to get that extra shot, or quality we were looking to capture. Total team players. We were super thankful for that. But, that is not why they made the blog. It was just the overall experience of working alongside them. On our ride home, Matt called us and we talked and laughed for a good 30 minutes about the day and our businesses. Our companies were just a great fit together. And we hope it happens again soon. Check our Matt and Liz’s work at www.hinkleyphoto.com, and check out a few of their stunning images from that wedding day below.

There are wedding days where everything just comes together. A beautiful couple. A beautiful venue. Peak fall foliage. Great professionals to work alongside. And, not only perfect weather, but perfect timing with that weather. There might have been a fast approaching storm that almost interrupted the post-ceremony speeches, but Emily and Steve Sprofera had the perfect weather conditions during their ceremony.

In our latest Boston Wedding Film Clip, we feature the ceremony portion of Emily and Steve’s wedding at the gorgeous Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Connecticut. This venue is a hidden gem outside of the I-495 corridor, but well within driving distance from the city. The processional of the ceremony was one of my favorite parts of this wedding film, as the sun continuously peaked through the trees as the wedding party made their way down the aisle. Add to that, bride Emily and friend Christine Cardot of HandyGer created an amazing design at the top of the aisle with two painted wooden doors inviting the wedding party towards the orange and yellow-leaved, fall backdrop.

The film starts with the first look, as Emily reads a card Steve wrote to her earlier in the day. From there, the ceremony gives you parts of the couple’s personally-written vows, as we sprinkled them throughout the entire- 21-minute feature film. Add to the vows, a great reading about the “Meaning of Love” and the audio portions of this wedding were priceless. We got to work with one of our favorite photography duos with Brittany Love and Shana Perry of Love and Perry Photography. Credit them with a few of the great set-ups we used within the ceremony portion of the film. I think Jackie at Lord Thompson will have couples duplicating the table and couch set-ups for years to come. Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film from just south of the Massachusetts border in Thompson, Connecticut.
