We, at JPod Productions, were so happy with the response that we received for our first ever Best Wedding Trailer of 2012 Contest! First, I want to thank all of the people who took the time to watch all five wedding video trailers and vote for their favorites.

With that being said, the Winner of the 2012 Contest is Annoula and Mike Bikas! Their wedding had a great ethnic element mixed in with some downtown flair this past summer. They will receive a $250 gift certificate to the home store of their choice.


Using a random number generated, we also selected two voters to win $25 gift certificates to the restaurant or store of their choice. The first winner is Dino Gravenis who voted on Facebook for our winners, Annoula and Mike. The second winner is Michelle Elizabeth who also voted on Facebook and her favorite wedding video trailer was Melissa and Jayson’s film from Saltwater Farm Vineyard.  Thanks again for participating and we’ll see you next year!

One of the largest trends that has swept through the wedding industry is the use of uplighting in wedding venue spaces. At first, we were only seeing uplighting in our upscale Newport and Boston wedding videos, but now the trend is everywhere. That is a good thing and a bad thing. Proper uplighting can transform rooms into elegant and beautiful ceremony, cocktail and reception spaces that look fabulous in a wedding video. But, who lights your room will make the difference between having some color on your wall and truly transforming a wedding venue.

There are a lot of wedding vendors who offer uplighting, so it is hard to figure out what you are getting in the end.  To help breakdown the science of uplighting, I have enlisted Jim Powers of CJC Event Lighting to give an uplighting 101 lesson for this month’s wedding video tip. Jim has been responsible for uplighting several of our Boston wedding films lately. I respect the time and effort Jim puts into each client by meeting them at the venue to discuss potential options for the space. In part one of this video wedding tip, Jim will cover color washing your walls, changing colors, and the use of textures.


Every year we get to shoot at a lot of new and beautiful wedding venues, and recently many of those have been in the heart of Boston. Earlier this year, that venue was the Four Seasons. It was an elegant, winter wedding that that brought Emily Glenn and Andrew Cleary together in a ceremony that had a ton of personality, thanks to officiant Elly Jackson. The couple and their wedding party were just a pleasure to work with, as we had a great time from the bride’s preparations right through to late night dancing. The classic, winter white decor was breathtaking from start to finish and every detail of this wedding were perfect. As a Boston wedding videographer, this had all of the elements of a wedding we love to film!

In this feature film clip, the focus is on the bride and groom’s prep’s leading up to the ceremony. We start with the exchange of gifts as Andrew blew away Emily with his choice of jewelry. Emily’s gift for Andrew showed up at a less opportune time, but it made for a fun moment in the wedding film. Nonetheless, the personality within the preparations demonstrates how every wedding film tells a different story. The video clip ends with a great first look on the staircase of the Four Seasons Boston. It’s definitely a classic Boston Wedding video.
