Corey Condardo made his decision to get his Boston wedding film when he was just a sophomore in high school. One of Corey’s teachers that year, Mrs. Mazzola, told her students how much she cherished her wedding video. Corey said that she was so passionate about how important a wedding video was that she encouraged her students to make sure they budgeted for it on their wedding day. It was at that moment that Corey knew that he would make sure to visually document his wedding day. Thank you Mrs. Mazzola. We’ll be sure to keep a job open for you on our marketing team to promote our Boston Wedding Films.

Skye and Corey were such a pleasure to work with, as they were so laid back and relaxed throughout the wedding day. The couple exchanged heart-felt cards that really showed the true connection between these two and I can help but to get goose bumps at the 4:58 mark of the film. I also got to enjoy my first Vernors ginger ale, as the Detroit-based soda was a requirement for the wedding weekend and was the choice of drink for the bride’s pre-wedding toast. I must admit, it is a very good little pop.

Skye and Corey’s wedding was primarily on the South Shore of Boston with the bride and groom preps taking place at the Adams Inn in Quincy and the reception taking place at Venezia on the Water. Their ceremony took place at the historic Swedenborg Chapel which sits on the edge of Harvard University’s campus in Cambridge. We truly enjoyed working alongside Audrey and Seth from MassArt Photography as well as Shawn Santanello of Viren Entertainment.

This week’s wedding tip comes from one of the top wedding planner companies in Boston and New England. Courtney Graham of Marrero Events and the Boston Wedding Group is a big supporter of having a first look, and we here at JPod Films have a similar view. We both believe that a first look has so many advantages to making your wedding day all that it can be. Many traditional couples will forgo this recent trend, but we think you should really look at the benefits before eliminating this from your timeline.

In addition to all of Courtney’s great points (which we agree with), we believe that having a first look will also make the whole day more relaxing as it “loosens” the timeline. You will be less rushed throughout the day, and by attending the cocktail hour, you will have a better chance to interact and thank your guests. That will translate to having more tie and more fun at your reception. For us filmmakers, the added interaction, emothion and personality of the couple’s first look helps make our Boston Wedding Films that much better.  Let us know what you think below and subscribe to our feed to see more wedding tips as we unveil them each week.
