In 2016, we started building an amazing relationship with wedding and event design powerhouse SD Events (Simple Details Events). Not only did we film one of their amazing Cape Cod weddings this fall, but we started sharing space with them and Allegro Photography in Wellesley, MA last March. The thing that I like most about Tasha Bracken and her team is the way they make the wedding day run smoother without getting in the way. Tasha, Priscilla and Lindsay know when they need to step in and take control, and when to step back and let the day flow. They are a planning team that works in unison with each professional to maximize the impact of each service provided. If you don’t want to take my word for how good they are, listen to groom Konrad Martin talk about SD Events at his wedding…


Our SD Event designed wedding took place at the Chatham Bars Inn in November of this year with a clambake rehearsal dinner, a classic Catholic ceremony in Brewster and a lavish reception that included the couple flying in the same pianist who played the music during their first ever dance together. Below is the couple’s wedding trailer film, which is a preview of their longer Boston wedding film that is yet to come. (photo credit – Allegro Photography)

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.

For the new blog, I am going to continue my tradition of having a vendor of the month on the first of each month. On the new blog, I may select previous vendors who have been highlighted, but I am starting fresh in February of 2011. This month’s vendor of the month is a wedding planner with credentials that any bride and groom would love to have at their disposal. I referring to Samantha Talora of Delle Risate Events.
