Speeches at the wedding are one of our favorite, as well as most important moments of the day. We always tell our couples to make sure that their toast-givers tell stories about the couple. How did they meet? What makes them a great couple? You get the gist. But, at the same time, we don’t want to take away the toast-givers connection to the bride and groom.

In the fall of 2014, Best Man Chris Holmes gave a speech to Katie and Mike Barbin that had the ballroom of the Cranwell Resort Spa and Golf Club in stitches. The main story that Chris told was why he knew that Mike was his best friend. It’s a story that is worth the punchline. Therefore, on June 8th, we honor Best Friends Day with one of the best, and funniest stories about friends you will here at a wedding. Share it with your best friend…



Amanda of Ready Set Film and I had an amazing time collaborating on this same day edit film for the September Boston Wedding Group (BWG) Meeting. The amount of time and efforts that all of the vendors (listed below) put in to making this meeting such a success is both inspiring and humbling.  The meeting was the BWG’s industry-wide meeting featuring keynote Speaker Stacie Francombe, of Inspired Smart Success, who gave a plethera of tips on how to get noticed and published by the media. Edna and her team from EFD Creative Event Planning & Design did a tremendous job creating an elegant multi-floor event. It was the second time we have worked with Edna in the past month and I have to say that I love her and Kacie’s attention to detail. Below is a quick two-minute Boston Same Day Edit Film of the event that was held at the beautifully renovated Marriot Courtyard Downtown on Tremont Street in Boston. The renovated ballroom is elegant and large enough to hold events of many sizes in the Theater District of Boston.

It’s been a couple of years since JPod Productions participated in a bridal show, but we have really hit it off with Fran Imhoff, wedding coordinator at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, New Hampshire. She started an intimate bridal show a few years back and it has grown quite a bit over the past few years. Taking part in the show allows us Boston wedding videographers to get outside the city and explore the beautiful Mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont.  It provides lots of great, new settings for our wedding films.

This year’s Alyson’s Orchard Simply Elegant Bridal show took place last Sunday, November 10th from Noon until 2:30. Dozens of vendors and hundreds of brides with their family and friends packed the orchard’s reception space, Robert’s Hall,  as wedding planning was the topic of the afternoon. While we promoted our Boston Wedding videos at the JPod Productions booth, we were still able to take a few shots of the show during the set-up and while the crowds moved through the building. The following video is a quick look at the wedding show, which is becoming a staple in the New Hampshire and Southern Vermont Wedding communities.

More and more each year, we have been traveling to new and different locations around New England and beyond for weddings and events. This weekend, we shed our Boston wedding videographer title and had the pleasure of covering a 20-year wedding vow renewal on beautiful Block Island in Rhode Island. The Anderson and Gelsomini families that we filmed this weekend had a great connection to the island and that really helped build a great story line. With less formalities than a traditional wedding, we spent a lot of time outside of the “party” to capture the true essence of the couple and their family. We were lucky enough to film this Block Island Wedding video at the Spring House on the Southern side of town, which is a gorgeous venue with majestic views and an tremendous wrap-around porch. The highlights of the film will definitely include the family time on the beach, the flash mob dance from Static Noyze that kicked off the dancing section of the party, and the fireworks which rivaled that of the Fourth of July! The last two items were a surprise from Nick to his wife of 20 years, Pam.

Besides the Spring House, we were able to travel around the island and look at many of the other great locations that the Island has to hold a wedding which included the Atlantic Inn, The Rose Farm Inn, The Sullivan House, and the Cushman House. We snapped pictures of some of the picturesque locations on the island that are popular for wedding photos and video like the Southeast Lighthouse, the Southeast Bluffs and Great Salt Pond which is where most of the boaters can be found. I also attached the sunrise timelapse that we captured looking over Great Salt Pond, which is already slated to be one of the opening clips of the this Block Island Wedding video. We worked with some cool vendors in Leslie Ulrich of Lesley Ulrich Photography and Chris Whitten of Coastline Entertainment. So, if your need of a wedding video on the islands, we’ll gladly take our Boston Wedding Videographer title on the road to any wedding in Block Island, Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard.
