In the heart of Boston, Rachel and Keith’s wedding at the Four Seasons unfolded as a beautiful Jewish wedding, meticulously adorned with romantic decor, setting the stage for a celebration that transcended the ordinary. From the ceremony to the reception, every corner of the Four Seasons radiated with a romantic design that captivated the senses and left guests in awe. We were fortunate to have Amanda and Nicole from A Soiree Productions as the wedding planners complimented by Dominic Cambio Studios and Suzanne B Lowell Lighting to make the landscape breathtaking to film.

The wedding party got ready at the hotel with sweet, subtle moments capped by Rachel’s first look with her dad. The groom and his groomsman had a simple and classic morning as they got suited up in their black tie attire.  The getting ready portion of the wedding day was complete with the couple’s first look on the iconic stairs of the Four Seasons. With rain in the forecast, the couple luckily got a break in the wet weather to have a photo session across the street at the Boston Public Gardens.

The ceremony, held in the round, offered a unique experience where each guest got a more intimate view of the nuptials. Surrounded by loved ones, Rachel and Keith exchanged vows, making every guest feel like an integral part of their love story. The romantic decor, highlighted by elegant fuchsia-colored flowers and pinspotted lighting, elevated the ambiance of the Governor’s Room at the hotel.

The Reception decor continued to carry the wedding’s romantic feel with intricately designed centerpieces and softly lit corners surrounding the signature black dance floor. A well-executed choreographed dance from Rachel and Keith began the reception leading up to fun and energetic Hora. District 21, a Wilson Stevens Band, kept the couple and their family and friends dancing all night long in between all of the reception formalities. We were fortunate to work alongside Photographer Cheryl Richards and Studio 29 as part of the top-notch vendor team. Enjoy this beautiful Boston Wedding Film in one’s of the city’s most iconic venues.

Against the backdrop of The Mount’s picturesque surroundings, Lauren and her father made their way down the iconic stone-filled path to their ceremony where the couple shared an intimate and sweet exchange that beautifully captured the essence of their love. The outdoor garden ceremony was nothing short of magical.

We met Emmy and Mike through their planners from KG Events & Design and right from the beginning, we knew that they would be a great fit for JPod Films. We loved the energy between the two and they both just had that look when they talked with one another. That “look” would shine through when they read their vows on the wedding day.

The day began with Emmy’s preparations at the iconic Dr. Daniel Fisher House & Gardens on Martha’s Vineyard. We had fun shooting her details, while Emmy was most taken aback by her Venus et Fleur bouquet sent over by Mike. The gentlemen got ready at a house close to the reception location, which was filled with smiles and a relaxed feel. The two met for the first time back at the Daniel Fisher House where the couple exchanged heartfelt private vows that truly showed the connection these two have for one another. The couple were married in the Old Whaling Church in the heart of Edgartown led by Officiant Vicky Egan who designed a ceremony with personal touches.

The visual highlight of this wedding could be found at the reception which took place at a private home along the Atlantic Ocean.  The couple themed their lawn space into an Asbury Park (New Jersey) meets Martha’s Vineyard space to combine the two family’s backgrounds. Under the neighboring tent, KG Events & Design alongside Aubrey Maria Designs created arrangements of peonies. snapdragons and seasonal flowers resulting in one of the most amazing outdoor landscapes we have ever filmed. Cocktail tables and designer couches made the reception a very relaxing space for guests to mingle. Add Painter John Folley’s beautiful rendition of the first dance before an energetic dance party broke out during the evening hours and this was an amazing spring Martha’s Vineyard wedding.

We met Tori and Casey through their wedding planner Luba Gankin from Primavera Dreams and we hit it off right away. With both of our dogs hanging out in our first zoom call, the three of us (six if you are including the dogs) just had that feeling that this was a great match. Tori and Casey seemed to have an equal role in the wedding planning process and their communication with each other really struck me as such a positive attribute of their relationship.

Tori and Casey’s Boston Wedding Film primarily took place at the beautiful Winchester Country Club. The boys got ready at the Country Club, while the girls hung out at the Archer Hotel for their wedding day preparations with one of my favorite hairstylists in Maricruz Polito from Maricruz Hairstyles. The letter exchange between the couple was so heartfelt and the personality of this couple continues to shine right into the ceremony. Tori and Casey had two great readings, a rock ceremony representing the couple’s path, and personally written vows that were good enough to make you laugh and cry all in one. It was clear that so much thought and effort was put into the ceremony to really exemplify the personalities and connection between these two.

The highlight for us was the couple’s brief reunion with their two dogs after the wedding. The excitement of Nama and Mindy during their “first look” was priceless, followed by a quick photo session with the now family of four.  The reception continued in the beautifully decorated and uplit Winchester Country Club.  DesignLight did such a beautiful job transforming the room into an elegant space. We shared the evening with Jason Kan Photography and the Hub Band which also made the day a lot of fun.

Paige and Eric were married on a beautiful August day last summer at the scenic Wianno Club along the ocean waters of Osterville, Massachusetts. It was a simple, classic Cape Cod wedding with a natural feel including a color palette filled with greens and whites. Paige got ready at the family’s nearby home and traveled over to the Wianno Club in a vintage car with her Dad. From there, the rest of the wedding day unfolded in and around the beautiful “shingle-styled” building along the Atlantic Ocean.

The beautiful grounds of the Wianno Club played backdrop to the couple’s first look and a photo session that included the couple venturing onto a gorgeous rock formation overlooking the ocean. After a pre-ceremony cocktail reception with sparkling champagne, the couple exchanged vows in front of the ocean as the sun came out to warm up the event. During the cocktail hour, Paige and her parents arranged a surprise for Eric as a plane flew by with a banner that read “Paige and Eric: Shipmates Forever”. The decor of the event included an array of hydrangeas that made the wedding day so elegant from beginning to end. The wonderful speeches revolved around the great character of these two as their paths crossed on the campus of Cornell University.

We were fortunate to work alongside Lisa Rigby of Lisa Rigby Photography. The wedding was planned by Elegant Engagements of Cape Cod. This was a blessing as the on-site vendor team of Megan, Erica, and Sara from Elegant Engagements were on top of every detail and made the whole day run so smoothly. Enjoy this quintessential Cape Cop wedding film…

Laura and Adam ended our spring rush of weddings this year and it could not have been a better way to end the month of June. We met the new Mr. and Mrs. Ruchim through Tasha Bracken at Tasha Bracken Events, and it could not have been a better match. I love when a groom puts an equal amount of positive energy, input and personality into the wedding day. From the moment we met Laura and Adam right through the process of creating a pre-wedding video for their rehearsal dinner video, we just connected on all wave lengths. We knew this was going to be an awesome Boston wedding film.

It was a mix of the big cities, as Chicago and Boston came together for this wedding. Laura grew up in the Boston area, while Adam’s family is from the Chicago area. The two came together while they were both working in New York City. This meeting was an instant connection that carried right through to the wedding day. These two just have an electricity around them that shows you that they are meant to be together.

This classic and elegant wedding took place at the Four Seasons on Boylston Street in Boston. With the perfect touches from Suzanne B Lowell Lighting and Design, the ceremony took on the most romantic feel. During the ceremony, the couple’s vows were captivating and hilarious in the same breath. The reception had such a great energy from the first dance to the tremendous series of toasts to a dance party that never slowed down throughout the night.

The couple chose to have multiple videos to remember their wedding day. Below is the couple’s wedding trailer film, as well as their final Short Film which is the most popular choice out of all of our Boston wedding films. Get ready to laugh, cry and feel all the feels of Laura and Adam’s wedding day.

We loved seeing these two families come together as Alex, the Boston girl, was blending with Alex and his Dominican Republic background. The wedding came together as one that was chic with clean lines, while incorporating a little bit of a Caribbean feel through the location, flowers and music. The mix of cultures added to the couple’s great personalities really allowed this Boston wedding film to flourish.

With the wedding taking place on Nantucket, it definitely brought on the island feel that was familiar to much of Ellery’s family. The day was an overcast “grey lady” day on the island with an added strong breeze off the ocean waters arising during the ceremony. The film opens with local artist Sergio Roffo rendering a new painting of the Sankaty Head Light which added some sweet Nantucket character to this wedding film. After the girls finished getting ready at the family’s house on the island, the scene shifted over to the scenic Sankaty Beach Club. Ellery and the gentlemen finished getting ready at the club before the ceremony took place over looking the ocean waters.

The reception moved down the road to the Sankaty Head Golf Club which sits not too far from the Sankaty Head Light that opens this Nantucket wedding film. The reception was filled with so many smiling faces, amazing speeches, a birthday cake for both the Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom, and dancing…lots of dancing! The band Clique had the dance floored packed all night long with an array of music which even included some outstanding salsa dancing. The night ended with Alex’s brothers (with help) decorating a black Audi convertible and the couple exiting through their guests to ride away in that car on their first night as a married couple. I hope you enjoy our latest Feature Film.

We met Heather and Chris organically as they found our wedding films online and reached out to us. Once we met for our first consultation, I knew these two were an ideal JPod Films’ couple. They each had fun, easy going personalities and it was easy to tell that they saw the value in a quality wedding film. Once their parents saw our work, Heather said “booking us was a must”. So they did and I was really excited about sharing in their wedding day.

Heather and Chris started their day by getting ready at the Lenox Hotel and the vibe was so energetic and fun. The girls were telling great stories about when Heather and Chris first met, while the boys were yelling and screaming over last-minute World Cup goals. As the preparations continued, the couple each gave sentimental gifts to their parents and each other which really brought a great warmth to their Boston wedding film. The couple transitioned to the Boston Public Library for the rest of their wedding day which started with a great first look at the top of the library staircase. After a pre-ceremony photo session, the couple were married in the library’s courtyard and the ceremony featured heart-felt and extremely well-written vows. The night continued with lots of high fives, elegant decor and high energy dance party. We loved how the couple incorporated their favorite old-school music into the ceremony and reception, as Africa by Toto was used in the ceremony and You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall and Oates was used for their first dance song.

We were lucky to work alongside the uber-talented Kate McElwee and the band Beantown from Wilson Stevens. True professionals like that always make the day flow so seamlessly. Enjoy Heather and Chris’ Boston wedding film from the BPL!

Ever since we filmed Kate + Bryan’s wedding in Hyannisport in 2014, the small residential village has been one of our favorite and most visited locations on Cape Cod for our Boston wedding films. This time, it was another Bryan with a “Y”, as Jacqui and Bryan were getting married in this gorgeous little nook on the Cape. This New York City couple grew up on the Cape, but they found us organically after seeing Kate and Bryan’s wedding at their same reception venue, The Hyannisport Club.

Jacqui got ready in her parent’s quintessential Cape home and her morning with the girls had so many cute little moments from her flower girl’s innocent sassiness to the first looks that she did with her Dad and her bridesmaids. Bryan got ready nearby and the boys in their blue suits with light blue ties were dressed to impress. A beautiful church ceremony at Our Lady of Assumption was followed by a nice, but quick photo shoot by the water as some quick moving showers passed through the area. The reception took place at the beautiful Hyannisport Club, which boasts one of the best looking sunsets on the Cape because of its southwest location on the Hyannisport peninsula.

We got to work alongside the talented Todd Wilson Images duo of Todd and Sarah, while the band Splash from Wilson Stevens came down from Boston to rock the party all night long. Not only was there a constant, packed dance floor, but the dance party ended with the newlyweds up in the air much like you would see in the hora dance at a Jewish wedding. The bride and groom finished the night with a sparkler exit which capped off a perfect Boston wedding film on Cape Cod.

By choosing the Willowdale Estate for their wedding, Kathryn and John Pasinski really found a venue that captured their love for the outdoors. Their wedding brought many parts of the country together with Texas and mid-western charm and the many New England ties which combining into a “elegant and fun” event as Kathryn put it. This couple, who met on online, had a great connection that really comes through in their Boston wedding film.

Kathryn and John both got ready in the morning at the Willowdale Estate in separate ends of the building before meeting for a first look outside on the beautiful property in Topsfield, Massachusetts. Their photo session was interrupted by a quick moving, but hard hitting thundershower. Fortunately, the rained moved past in time for a classic, Willowdale ceremony in front of the beautifully stoned building. The reception followed under the venue’s large tent, which was a feature that drew Kathryn and John to this property. We loved the array of details that you will see throughout the film including the initial on the front door, the lawn games made available during cocktail hour and the gorgeous tablescapes and wrapped beams created by Gregory and his team at Flou(-e)r Specialty Floral Events.

The couple exchanged personal written vows that really put an intimate touch on the wedding, while Kathryn’s father’s toast was one filled with love and sentiment. We loved working with Zev Fisher of Zev Fischer Photography, and the band Young Love and the Thrills kept the party rocking all night long. The couple exited the wedding with a pom pom send off, as the couple rode off to begin their married life together.
