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.

David and Clint found us online as they looked to plan an intimate fall wedding in the Public Gardens in the heart of Boston. It’s not often that we help plan the event, but photographer Darlene Devita (credit to her for the picture above) and I guided the couple and their four guests in making appropriate decisions on the date and time. Together, we all chose to go for a golden light ceremony during the mid-week, as we knew that the park would be much more crowded on a weekend day. After a late September, Thursday wedding date had to be rescheduled, we ended up with a Tuesday evening ceremony in the middle of October on picture-perfect fall day.

The amazing part about this evening was that it didn’t feel like an intimate, six person wedding. One of the reasons for that was that an impromptu group of Bostonians slowly gathered throughout the ceremony to create a slightly larger audience. The bigger reason that the wedding didn’t feel quite so intimate was because David and Clint included so many people from their lives within their ceremony. Within their ceremony, there were readings and poems from over a dozen people that were not able to attend the wedding in person, but were important to the couple. Some were funny, some were sweet, but what really came out was the personality of each individual and why they were great as a couple.

What I love about this wedding is that great things come out of tough situations. It is obviously that COVID and the pandemic has made life tough on people in so many ways. But, this wedding felt like one of those silver linings. It made the best of a situation in the most personal and romantic way. I hope you enjoy this Boston wedding film as much as we enjoyed sharing in David and Clint’s intimate wedding day.

 

This wedding season has been a whirlwind for sure, but the silver lining in it all is that we have been filming the sweetest intimate weddings during this pandemic. Julie and Jeremy were one of those weddings as they chose to still get married in 2020 even though they postponed their larger event at the Boston Harbor Hotel to 2021. After looking around at a couple of potential venues, friends of Julie and Jeremy offered their Sudbury home as the backdrop for their micro wedding.

And, what a venue it was! The ceremony space was set-up with a beautiful walkway through a section of trees that led to a shaded space in the yard where a hydrangea-decorated Chuppah awaited the couple. The reception, which included the first dance, a father-daughter dance, and several speeches, took place in a perfectly-decorated, rustic barn on the property which was open on both sides with just enough room to social distance all of the guests. There were also so many cute spots and beautiful landscaping in and around the property for our photo session with Jill Person Photography.

So, people keep asking us, what does a micro-wedding look like? Julie and Jeremy did a great job following the guidelines throughout the wedding day. Masks were worn throughout the day, even throughout the outdoor ceremony with the exception of the processional and recessional for the couple themselves. The highlight of the day could have been Julie’s father’s mask which was designed to look like a tux with a little bow tie on top. You can see it HERE in an Instagram post that we shared recently. With an outdoor reception and proper spacing, the guests took off their masks for the reception. The couple had food catered by a local restaurant that gave each table of 2-3 people their own “box” of food. Enjoy our latest Boston 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.

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.

Bri + John found us through one of our favorite couples in Becky and Matt Hall. Their Vermont wedding pulled us out of Boston for a picturesque weekend in the quaint town of Dorset. With a northern location in the Green Mountains of Vermont, the leaves were just starting to turn on this September weekend which provided a great landscape for the photo session, as well as during other parts on the day.

The entire wedding took place within walking distance, as the preparations, the ceremony and the reception were almost all on the same street. The preps were filled with laughter and included a sentimental gift exchange between the couple. After a first look in the mountains, the couple were married in the United Church of Dorset. It was one of those small, adorable churches with lots of character.

The reception brought us directly across the street to the Dorset Field Club for an elongated cocktail hour on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Bri and John’s reception took place under a beautiful tent at the Dorset Field Club. The Field Club is actually the oldest continuously operated gold course in the United States. We enjoyed sharing the day with Alexandra Roberts and the super friendlyTara Pollio from Tara Pollio Floral Event Design. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding film from the Green Mountains of Vermont.

Tyler Unwin was the first of two JPod filmmakers and editors to get married in 2017. Tyler edited for us when he was in college at Western New England University, and he has now worked his way up the television chain to become a full-time videographer at Fox 25 News in Boston. Tyler met his beautiful bride Devon in their hometown in Vermont, as these high school sweethearts have stood the test of time including challenging bouts of long distance dating to reach their wedding day in the fall of 2017.

Tyler and Devon chose the beautiful Oceancliff Resort and Hotel as the backdrop for their fall wedding day. Devon and the girls got ready in one of my favorite bridal suite spaces, the Gatehouse, which is located at the front of the 10 acre property over looking Narragansett Bay. The card and gift exchange were very emotional, as Tyler wowed the bridal suite crowd with a box of Venus ET Fleur eternal roses. The couple chose to do a first look and pre-ceremony photo session, which I highly recommend if you want to look your best and have more time to enjoy your cocktail hour and reception.

The weather was picture perfect for an early October Day in Newport, Rhode Island. Devon and Tyler chose to have their wedding late in the afternoon taking advantage of their golden hour light by the water. What they didn’t expect is that a cruise ship would travel through the Bay right as Devon came down the aisle. The ship was kind enough to send a congratulatory horn signal to Devon and Tyler right as the ceremony was about to begin. It’s a moment that the couple and their guests will be talking about for years to come. A beautiful sunset graced the cocktail hour, as it may have been our best sunset of the year. In addition to the beautiful traditional decor, Devon and Tyler made sure that their dog, Coco, was included in the details. They had cutouts of Coco for their photo booth, and a doggie bag bar for guests to bring home treats to their lovable, furry friends. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding film from the edge of Narragansett Bay.

Courtney and James were married on familiar turf for us, as their church and reception venue in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts matched that of Kate and Bryan’s wedding from a few years earlier. Beyond the wedding locations, Courtney, James and I bonded quite quickly during our first Skype conversation. Then, when Courtney and I found out that we shared an alma mater in UMASS, Amherst, it was like we were long time friends. I even got invited to take part in the UMASS group photo at the reception! The only bummer in this wedding was that Courtney and James’ dog, Race, was not going to be part of the wedding festivities.

This nautical-themed wedding started with a first look and photo session on the beach at the Hyannisport Yacht Club, which also neighbors the famous Kennedy Estate. The scenic photo session is featured throughout the couple’s wedding film, but it didn’t compare to the amazing sunset photos that were captured later at the Hyannisport Club. The ceremony took place in the quaint Union Chapel, which was standing room only to see Courtney and James exchange amazing, heart-felt vows. The reception moved over to the scenic Hyannisport Club for three great speeches, an amazing sunset and a party that did not stop all evening on the outdoor deck.

We got to work with some great wedding professionals as we filmed along side Molly and Erika from Molly Anne Photography. And, we couldn’t say enough about the band The Sugarbabies out of Boston. Their energy was electric and they kept the dance floor packed all night long. Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film.

We met Stephanie and James through our good friends, Katie and Casey, at Katie O. Weddings & Events. With Stephanie’s roots in Boston and the couple having lived in New York City for a while, Stephanie and James chose the Berkshires as a middle ground for their wedding day. They found Gedney Farm to be the perfect location. It provided the natural outdoor setting combined with a rustic feel that they were looking for and it was a beautiful backdrop for our latest Boston wedding film.

The couple had a picture perfect summer day in the Berkshires, as the two got ready in opposite ends of the lodging barn. After a first look and pre-ceremony photo session, the couple was married up on the property’s most picturesque piece of land in front a vast and iconic oak tree. The couple wrote short declarations to each other, which they both read providing an amazing personal touch to the wedding ceremony. The reception moved into the rustic barn on Gedney Farm and included a heartfelt speeches from Stephanie’s sister, Kimberly, and James’ Best Man, Omar. The First Class Band took it from there with the party only stopping one time during the night, and that was for a surprise fireworks show in the neighboring skyline.

With the help of Casey from Katie O, the couple surrounded us with great vendors for this event including the ultra-talented Trisha McCormack Photography. The couple chose greenery and a soft pallet of flowers for their reception decor, which was executed to perfection by Kris Ann Elario and her team from Fleurtatcious Designs. This latest Boston wedding film displays what a wedding outside of the city can look like when planned perfectly.
