Our latest Boston wedding film came to us as a referral from the Renfros (Tiffany + Matt, Margarita + Steve, Zach + Chris). That connection helped us build a great relationship with Erica and Matt, as we got to meet them and Matt’s parents before the wedding day at Margarita and Steve’s wedding. It was at that wedding that we knew that Erica would be a fixture on the dance floor at her own wedding.

This Boston couple chose to get married close to where Erica grew up at the newly renovated Newport Beach House, which just reopened in 2016 under the management of Longwood Events. With a small wedding party, we started the day with an intimate getting ready session for the bride and groom at the Hotel Viking in the heart of Newport, Rhode Island. Erica waited until getting to the Newport Beach House before putting on her beautiful lace wedding dress in the bridal suite. Every wants a sunny day on their wedding day, but Erica and Matt got an overcast misty look over their water view. It sounds like a bad thing, but in reality, it was a magical look for the camera in what was easily one of the best photo sessions we have had in the past few years.  It doesn’t hurt to have to talented and funny Joe Laurin of Joseph Laurin Photography cracking jokes next to you, which put Erica and Matt in such a naturally relaxed and happy state. Just jump ahead t0 4:58 to take a peak. The ceremony and reception took place on the top floor of the Newport Beach House overlooking Easton Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

We worked with some awesome vendors in addition to Joseph Laurin, as Julie Keilbasa and Alison Barbara, hair and make-up respectively, were a fun addition to the bridal preparations at the Hotel Viking. We felt at home on the Rhode Island coast, as multiple Boston wedding professionals were with us as well including the interactive band Soul of Boston and Les Fleurs of Andover. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding film from beautiful Newport, Rhode Island.

We met Tarryn through a referral from another bride who mentioned us on the Knot forums. Tarryn was a sweetheart from the start and her wedding brought us to the Connecticut Shore, which is always a fun place to film a wedding. After Tarryn and I met for coffee in late June at It’s a Grind Coffee Shop in West Hartford, I knew this wedding was going to be awesome.

This Connecticut wedding video started with two awesome preparations with the boys having breakfast and playing bocce, while the girls just had a fun, energetic vibe throughout the morning of make-up and hair in Monroe, CT. The clip below starts at the end of the ceremony at St. Mary’s Church in Stamford, CT and takes us to the Surf Club in New Rochelle, NY for the next part of the wedding video. Although rain was around for much of the day, we caught a break for a quick photo shoot by the ocean in New Rochelle during cocktail hour.  The ceremony section demonstrates how we overlap portions (homily and unity candle in this case) of the ceremony to make the film more entertaining to watch. The post-ceremony segment of the film captures the receiving line at St. Mary’s, and the cocktail hour, reception details and the photo session at the Surf Club in a fun, re-energizing style.

The day was a breeze, as we got to work with some great vendors including Image Photography and Top Notch Music Productions DJ Service.
