Make sure you budget for a wedding video or film. It is easy for me to say, because it’s my passion. Not getting a wedding video or film continuosly lands on, or tops the list of regrets for couples after the wedding. If you don’t believe me, check out this article from the Huffington Post. Well, the wedding filmmaking community is strong in the Boston area, as the majority of the top filmmakers in Beantown collaborate on a regular basis to improve our crafts. That is why I am not hesitant to have our Newbury St. neighbors Kathy and George Horemotis of S.H. Videography give our latest wedding tip about wedding films on our blog. Boston Wedding Group members Kathy and George talk about budget and what one of the common mistakes couples make in the wedding planning process.
We are excited to release JPod Productions’ first “Short Film”, our newest investment. As we met with prospective couples over the past six months, we found a common thread in that couples were looking for a Boston wedding film that was longer than our Highlight Film, but shorter than our Feature Film. We listened to what our couples were looking for and added the “Short Film” to our collection of investments. Jen and Brandon’s wedding provided the perfect landscape to create our first short film, as it was set to be an intimate affair with only 20 guests in attendance. In the end, the small guest list helped make a film with a plethora of personality.
We first met Brandon and Jen on a snowy Saturday morning in the North End of Boston. We had an instant connection, as we talked about how these two met and ended up together in Boston, as well as the still emerging wedding plans. Once we got to the wedding day, it just felt like the whole day epitomized what these two were all about. We started the day with a Yoga session at the Ames Hotel, before heading upstairs for bride and groom preparations. The preparations were filled with personal moments of card writing, gift exchanges, and even a visit from Erva, who helped get Jen into her dress. The day continued on with a ceremony where Jen and Brandon exchanged the most beautiful vows, a vegan luncheon at the beautiful skyline room at the Boston Museum of Science, a Duck Tour for all of the guests, and finally, a photo session in and around the Boston Public Gardens.
