Our latest short film comes from the latest Boston Wedding Group meeting, which took place at the gorgeous Smith & Wollensky on Arlington Street in the Back Bay.  The steakhouse restaurant features fabulous event spaces with tall ceilings, historic artifacts and working fireplaces, as well as Smith and Wollensky’s own private reserve. On this night, Smith and Wollensky hosted the meeting showing off two incredible spaces that have incredible charm. The venue itself is situated inside of a historic stone and brick castle that was built in 1891. Smith and Wollensky truly spoiled the BWG with delicious appetizers including lobster rangoons, incredible beef sliders and a mac and cheese bar that warmed us through a another cold Boston winter night.

The feature speaker of the night was Jess Levin, Founder and CEO of Carats & Cake. Included in the short recap film are a couple of snippets of what Jess covered in her presentation, “Keeping it real online. Building and maintaining a personal business in the ever-changing digital world.”  The space looked gorgeous as Boston Wedding Group Members Marrero Events, Artistic Blossoms, Peterson Party Center featuring Table Toppers of Newton, Revelation Productions, and Cakes for Occasions all made the Arlington Street venue look amazing. I actually can’t wait to film another event at this top-notch venue.

As visual sponsors, we filmed alongside Johnson’s Photography to highlight the event. Check out photos from the evening on Johnson Photography’s BlogThe February meeting was the kick-off to the 20th year of the Boston Wedding Group, which included an updated logo unveiling and the beginning of the groups 20 Acts of Kindness. That kindness kicked off with a food drive to benefit the Boston Rescue Mission. I’m excited to see what the rest of the year has to come, but until then, here is a recap of the February meeting of the Boston Wedding Group.

 

 

On Monday evening, JPod Films was honored to win a New England VISTA award for the fourth consecutive year. The Boston wedding film Jen + Brandon was given the Gold Award in the ‘full wedding’ category. This was the highest honor JPod Films has received in the wedding film category. The category is one that best fits our most popular wedding film investment.

Each year, the New England Professional Videographer’s Association (NPVA) holds the awards in March to honor the best films in New England over the past year. Jen + Brandon’s wedding was filmed in the heart of Boston at the Museum of Science, with the preparations take place at the chic Ames Hotel on Court Street.  The intimate wedding included a duck boat ride for all of the guests and a tremendous photo session that ended the day instead of beginning it.

The NPVA offers a fabulous outlet for JPod Films to improve our craft with many of the other best professional cinematographers in New England. See Jen + Brandon’s full film below.
