Meghan and Teddy were recommended to JPod Films through some friends of theirs. We loved the story of how they met, as they didn’t have the typical amazing love-at-first-site scenario. The two met at the less-than-romantic bar named Bradley’s Cafe near Providence College. Their initial meeting didn’t have Teddy sweeping Meghan off her feet, but over time, these two became a great couple.

The couple wanted an upbeat vibe to their highlight film, and their wedding day had so many fun moments that we had no problem delivering energy to this recap of their wedding day. One of the funny themes to this wedding was the fact that Meghan was not excited about giving up her last name of Glynn and changing it to Kinneen. The Phrase “Mrs. Teddy Glynn” kept arising throughout the day. She was funny about it, but I definitely know how this story goes. My wife had to give up Maloni to become Podworski. :-) We loved the gift exchange, as Teddy built Adirondack Chairs for Meghan, while Meghan gave Teddy some new artwork incorporating their wedding date for their house. Both gifts had that personal touch that we love to see.

Meghan and Teddy were married at St. Cecilia Parish on Belvidere Street in Boston, with the bride preparations and reception taking place at the Omni Parker House Hotel. Much to our delight, we got to work with photographers Mariah and Trish from Snap! Weddings for the second time in as many years. The band Clockwork got the dance floor moving for the evening and we loved the flowers from Rose Hill Garden. Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film…

Earlier this spring, we were fortunate enough to be asked to take part in a wedding planning conference put on by wedding planner Andrea Poisson Delucia of Elegance & Grace Weddings. The Elite Workshop took place the historic Dane Estate at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, MA and featured several of the top professionals in their field from the New England area. The conference was designed to help the younger professional in our industry begin to grow their business, but the wealth of information provided could have benefit the most seasoned professional in many ways.

We were honored to be one of the speakers at the conference, as we shared the importance of cinematography and the important things to consider when searching for a videographer or cinematographer for your client (as a wedding planner). Our talk was just the beginning of a day-long workshop that focused on growing your business through branding, stylized shoots, photography, getting published in magazines, incorporating a floral event designer, and utilizing specialized vendors to up improve your event. Some of the professionals who presented at the workshop included the event’s organizer Andrea Poisson Delucia, Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore, Danielle Duane of Boston Magazine, Binita Patel of Binita Patel Photography, Erica Jones of Orchids N’ Blooms Event Design, Jennifer Iovino of JMI Branding Forward and Crystal Mills of Wanderlush Boston. We have always believed in giving back to the industry that has been very good to us. And, Andrea and the team of professionals assembled for the Elite Workshop live by the same motto. Enjoy this short highlight film of the conference from this spring.

 

We love working with new bands each and every year. In 2015, we were introduced to a new band from Boston named Honey Train. They were the entertainment at Clare and Jake’s spring wedding at the Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.

We truly appreciate when bands bring the same cooperative, “whatever is best for the couple” attitude to the wedding day. That was the immediate feeling I received from Honey Train’s band leader Jason Felitto. Additionally, one important part of the wedding day for us is that we need great audio for our wedding films. To accomplish this, we always work with the DJ or band to try and capture the best audio possible from the reception, especially for the toasts. Honey Train was super cooperative in this respect. The experience was the same when we had the pleasure of working with Honey Train again in October, as they played for Robyn + Joe’s wedding at the Hermitage Club in West Dover, VT. We captured the following footage for the band at that wedding.

Why else do we like them? First of all, we love a band that gets a crowd moving and dancing. It obviously makes our wedding films better and Honey Train has passed the test multiple time here. Secondly, they create a great live and interactive experience as they will get out on the dance floor and engage the wedding couple and their guests. Finally, they bring that cooperative attitude. Joya, Ryan, Jay, Dennis, Kyle, Jordan, Brandon all work hard and want what is best for the couple and it shows. Enjoy two quick clips from one of our latest Boston Wedding Films.
