Lauren and Sean found us through their photographer Matt Cavanaugh and their wedding planners Lauren + Ruthie of Eutopia Events. They reached out to us, as they thought our wedding films fit exactly what they were looking for: “authentic, not corny and modern/clean.” Their words, not ours, but I thought they described exactly what we strive to produce in each of our Boston Wedding Films.

This Boston couple traveled back to their college stomping grounds of Northampton and Amherst, Massachusetts to tie the knot. Lauren is a Smith College graduate, while Sean received his degree from Amherst College. They actually met at Amherst College when Lauren and her friends ended up at the wrong room and were coerced by Sean and his friends to hang out for the evening. That was their first meeting, but their relationship didn’t start until a few years later.

The bride got ready just a few houses down the road from Helen Hills Chapel on the campus of Smith College. There were so many great little moments from the bride’s preparations that add so much personality and character to this wedding film. The Reception was across the Connecticut River in Amherst at the Eric Carle Museum (right down the road from Amherst College). The Art filled walls created a unique space for Lauren and Sean’s celebration. The couple even created an “art project” for their family and friends, which served as their guestbook.  Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film…

In our latest Boston Wedding Film, Alex and Tom are proof that long distance relationships work. With Alex living in Arizona, and Tom living in Massachusetts, the two had a chance meeting in Las Vegas at restaurant called Buca Di Beppo. After spending a full-day together, the couple reconnected two months later for their “first date” and the rest was history. With the distance between them, travel became an integral part of their relationship. Much of their young relationship was built around traveling in Massachusetts, Arizona and San Diego visiting places they had never been. Tom actually proposed to Alex on their two year anniversary at the scene of their first meeting, Buca Di Beppo.

Just over three years after their first date, Alex and Tom were married at St. Francis de Sales Parish in Charlestown, followed by a reception at the Omni Parker House Hotel in downtown Boston. We love how this soon to be Navy JAG wore his military whites for the ceremony, only to switch to the classic Tuxedo and bow tie for the reception. One of my best pieces of advice to couples is to always have the father of the bride give a toast at the wedding. In this wedding, we had both father’s deliver outstanding speeches. In fact, Tom’s father doubled as his Best Man and he delivered a funny and enthusiastic speech that starts and ends this film with great energy. We also loved the classic New England touch that Alex and Tom chose with their wedding cake, as it was a rendition of the same cake Jackie Kennedy had on her wedding day.

In week three of our four-part series highlighting the four wedding photographers that have their images featured on our JPod Films website, we are featuring a couple who has supported us tremendously from day one. Dave and Eileen Breveglerei of Breveglerei Photography were the first photographers to really start referring our Boston wedding films. We will never forget where we came from…

Dave and Eileen are the perfect husband and wife team, as Dave is the technical guru who I can geek out with over cameras and road cycling. Eileen brings a punch of personality, as she is so much fun to be around. With that said, she can still round up and reign in the rowdiest of wedding parties as good as anyone.

When we work with Dave and Eileen, we always seem to fuel each other’s creative juices. One great idea will lead to another during the couple’s photo session. We always like to try and outdo each other’s ring shots too. It’s that kind of fun competitiveness that benefits the couple in the end. Check out some of their work below and visit their website HERE.

One of the great things about the wedding industry is that there are truly a lot of great people who give everything they have for the couples who hire them. When we rebuilt our website last year, we turned to a few of our friends in the industry to help with feedback as our new website developed.

We also were fortunate enough to build relationships with photographers who actually provided some visual content for a few of our JPod Films webpages. I will always preach that you should have a wedding film, but I will also tell you that our Boston wedding films compliment the pictures that you will receive from your chosen photographer. When we built our site, I wanted to support those who supported us. Therefore, we are going to feature each of the four photographers who have wedding photos highlighted on our website one by one. We are going to start with Massart Photography.

We met Audrey and Seth from Massart Photography at Skye and Corey’s wedding in Boston. In our pre-wedding phone conversation with Audrey and Seth, we had an instant connection. The conversation was simply about what was most important to each of us throughout the day. Once the wedding day began, we just fueled off each other with ideas from the bridal suite to the photo session. When we work with photographers like Audrey and Seth, our wedding films always flourish.

Massart Photography is based in Rhode Island, but Audrey and Seth work are often found in Boston and elsewhere in Massachusetts filming weddings, newborn sessions and more. As an artist, I love that they are not afraid to play with light sources and utilize lighting in new and different ways. They really like to take advantage of natural light too, which is something we love as filmmakers. It’s this type of creativity that brings out some of the best images. To check out more of their site, visit their website HERE. Listed below are a few of our favorite images of theirs from the website, as well as Skye and Corey’s wedding.

Robyn and Joe had one of the most unique wedding days that we have ever filmed. With an October 17th wedding date, there was peak foliage on Haystack Mountain at the Hermitage Club in West Dover, Vermont. What we didn’t expect was the coating of snow that fell during the second half of the day. The result was our first Boston Wedding Film that saw a couple enjoy photographs on their wedding day in both peak foliage and in the snow.

Robyn and Joe were one of our latest bookings of the year, as they chose a short engagement and found us who somehow had the third weekend in October open (this never happens). The couple chose the ever-expanding Hermitage Club for their wedding venue, which is a great new open space, with a large Cabin-like feel in Southwestern Vermont. The couple chose to have a first look by the lake at the bottom of Haystack Mountain, and then moved back up the mountain for their ceremony and reception inside the Hermitage Club itself. 

This Vermont wedding film has lots of great details, including a candle-lined aisle which led to a gorgeous chuppah decorated by Janet Boyd of Boyd Family Farm. Liz Ligon was great to work with on the photography side, and we always love working with the band Honey Train, who filled the dance floor for us for the second time this season.

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.

For some couples, it’s love at first sight. For Katie and Mike, love took a little time. But, once the timing was right, Katie and Mike became an amazing match. Their wedding trailer is the quick version of their love story that started in Pelham, New Hampshire, and continued into Boston, Massachusetts. We were bummed that Katie and Mike’s chocolate lab, Bella, wasn’t able to be a part of the day. But, no worries, we found a way to include her in their upcoming feature film.

This Boston couple chose to have a destination wedding in the Bershires of Massachusetts, as they chose the gorgeous and historic Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club as their backdrop. A little rain tried to dampen their day, but great couples, like Katie and Mike, shine despite the rain. Tricia McCormack of Tricia McCormack Photography and I had a great time photographing these two around the showers. We found a great little porch area in the center of Lenox that served as the perfect place to do some of the couples photo session. Carolyn Valenti of Queen Anne’s Lace created an elegant and timeless floral display in Cranwell’s main ballroom for Katie and Mike, before they danced all night to the Boston party band, Bear Fight. We can’t wait to expand this Berkshire wedding film into a feature film in the coming months.

Our latest Boston Wedding film features Sara and Matt, who came back to their home state of Massachusetts to get married at the 5-star Boston Mandarin Hotel on Boylston Street. The first word that comes to mind when you see these two together is sweet! Just watch their first look and you’ll quickly see the sweet, caring way about these two that makes them a great match.

It was one of those wedding days where everything felt right. Sara and Matt were married by Rabbi Shira Joseph during sundown on the Mandarin Oriental’s beautiful outdoor terrace. The elegance of the event continued from cocktail hour right into the reception in the hotel’s ballroom, which was lit beautifully and decorated even nicer. This wedding had everything from great speeches, to a saxophone playing groom, to a dessert bar including Philadelphia-styled pretzels.

The attention to detail in this wedding was unmatched thanks to Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara and her team from Unique Weddings by Alexis, as well as Jeff Watson’s team at the Mandarin Hotel. The Mandarin Oriental’s service is as good as it gets in the city of Boston. We got to work alongside photographers Tara and Ben from Hitched Studios who brought an awesome vibe to the day (see their pictures HERE).  Sara and Matt danced the night away to the Band Night Rhthym, which is going to make the dancing portion of their feature film a fun one to edit. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding video…

Marco! Polo! What couple plays Marco, Polo in a field of grass? Becky and Joe do! It perfectly matched the personality of these two. It was one of those weddings where everything just felt right. Becky and Joe couple were blessed with the perfect fall wedding day at one of the prettiest golf courses we’ve ever visited for a wedding.

The modern, barn reception venue at the Ranch Golf Club is one of the hidden gems in Massachusetts as it is an open canvas for brides and grooms to paint. Becky had two close friends who put together a simple and elegant room together that the bride just gushed over. From white mums and pumpkins, to mason jars, to the closeline placecard holder, this wedding was a pinterest board of its own that could be titled ‘Rustic Chic’. Becky and Joe’s wedding day included an outside ceremony featuring their dog, Nala, a fabulous golden hour photo session and dance party that created some of the best circle dance-offs of the year.

We truly enjoyed working with Aveline June Photography and Bob Raina of Bob Raina DJ as their cooperative efforts made our day a lot of fun. Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film!

Jonathan and Mark chose to celebrate their marriage in Berkshires of Massachusetts, an area in which they vacation multiple times per year. This Miami couple did a fabulous job with their planner Samatha Talora and Floral Designer Carolyn Valenti in creating gorgeous ceremony  and reception spaces in the afternoon light at the Cranwell Resort, Spa and Golf Club in Lenox, MA.

Mark and John were accompanied by their two children, Hershel and Ava, as they were married under a elegantly decorated Chuppah on the resort’s Rose Terrace. The couple admitted to being a little monogram-happy, as everything from their shirts, to their suits, to the belt loops, to the napkins in the bathrooms carried the Kravitz monogram. One of the highlights of the wedding day was most definitely Jonathan and Mark’s first dance, which was a two-song choreographed performance that includes several dips and lots of pizazz.

For this Boston wedding film, we got to work with so many of the best vendors in the Berkshires, including the fore mentioned Carolyn Valeniti, as well as very-talented photgrapher Tricia McCormack. The Boston band Night Rhythm followed us down the Mass Pike for this wedding and they kept the party going all afternoon long. Despite the rain that fall just outside the Rose Terrace during the cermony, the day was a near perfect one for Jonathan and Mark! Congrats gentlemen!
