There are certain couples that just compliment each other so well. With Zach and Chris, you have an outgoing personality and a quiet personality. A doctor and a banker. A runner and a weight lifter. But when you see them together, it is so obvious how well they balance each other out. They bring out the best in each other and I absolutely love that about these two in our latest Boston Wedding Film.

Zach and Chris were married on a beautiful November evening at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square. The romantic night time setting was one that was as sweet as these two are when they are together. The couple got ready at the Boston Fairmont Copley Plaza and did photos prior to the ceremony in and around the city at locations that were special to the couple. One of those spots was the Trophy Room where the couple first met. At that location, we were also able to meet their lovable yellow Labrador Ezra, as Zach and Chris took some photos with him. It also let us tie in one of the readings from the ceremony, which was entitled, “How Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog”.

The reception included some heartfelt speeches that truly showed the family’s support for this same-sex couple. Zach and Chris were married during the Mannequin Challenge-phase of 2016 and they included one in their reception as everyone in their wedding party struck a pose. We also worked with some of our favorite wedding professionals including Jill for Person and Killian Photography and the Eye 2 Eye Band from Wilson Stevens Productions.

When two musically talented individuals come together like Christina and Steve, a harmonious melody is created and developed until we have a fantastic Boston wedding film. That is just the beginning of the musical references on this wedding day, as this Basoonist and her musically talented husband came together for an amazing wedding. Christina and Steve found us through one of our former brides, Tiffany Renfro (Tiffany + Matt). At our initial meeting at Starbucks in Newton, Christina and I hit it off immediately, and their fall wedding in the city sounded like it was going to be an amazing event.

Christina and Steve were married at St. Cecilia Church in Boston, with the reception taking place on the 33rd floor of the scenic State Room at 60 State Street. This couple, who met at the New England Conservatory of Music, planned a wedding with lots of musical touches including a string quartet at the ceremony, the amazing band Night Shift at the reception, and we even filmed Steve serenading Christina with a little Frank Sinatra number to end the reception formalities. You would never know it from the decor, but the wedding was a flower-free event. Christina took her vision to Table and Tulip who designed a beautiful array of ferns, branches and greens to create classic and elegant tablescapes. The other thing I will always remember about the day was the photo session. It ended during rush hour on a Friday night with a street shot of Christina and Steve in a cross walk without a car driving on the road. How this  happened on a Friday night in Boston, I will never know. Nonetheless, it was an amazing way to end that part of the wedding day.

Much of that photo session was amazing because we were working with not only a gorgeous couple, but a talented photographer in Emily Tebbetts. From the preparations at the Fairmont Copley to the dancing at the State Room, working with Emily and her sidekick Lexi was seamless and amazing as always. Emily and Christina were a good match too, because of their love of cats. Christina’s cats make cameo appearances on the cake topper, while the bride’s shoes also reflected her love of felines. Cats would probably be listed as the sub-theme of this wedding. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding film from some of our favorite spots in the city.

We met Becky and Matt through our good friend Amber Hall who is married to Matt’s Best Man and Brother Ryan Hall. As a former sportscaster, these two were the perfect match for us. Becky is a former lacrosse standout who led Gettysburg College to a National Division III Championship in 2011. Matt was a basketball standout at my high school alma-mater before heading off to Stonehill College and Estonia for a professional basketball career. If these two have children, look out sports world.

Our latest Boston Wedding Film took us to the Connecticut shoreline as the wedding day unfolded in Becky’s hometown of Madison, Connecticut. We started at Becky’s house with an upbeat bridal prep that led us to St. Andrews Church for the couple’s ceremony. In addition to having Massachusetts Congressman Richard Neal in attendance, the ceremony’s signature moment took place during the couple’s vows. It was the phrase “until death” that both Matt and Becky said with slight emphasis that drew laughter and smiles throughout the audience.

The photo session and reception took us oceanside to the Madison Beach Club. The photo session was one that was highlighted by a spectacular sunset, which also included the couple each firing off a rifle as the sun dropped behind the horizon. It was definitely the second signature moment from the wedding day, which we used to close out the film. The reception itself was more about the party than over the top decor. The hydrangeas used throughout the reception were classic and timeless, and the dancing throughout the night was as good as it gets thanks to the great music from the New York City Band Creations. Enjoy this Boston wedding film on the Connecticut shore, which epitomizes the personality and energy we try to incorporate in every film we produce.

There are wedding days where everything just comes together. A beautiful couple. A beautiful venue. Peak fall foliage. Great professionals to work alongside. And, not only perfect weather, but perfect timing with that weather. There might have been a fast approaching storm that almost interrupted the post-ceremony speeches, but Emily and Steve Sprofera had the perfect weather conditions during their ceremony.

In our latest Boston Wedding Film Clip, we feature the ceremony portion of Emily and Steve’s wedding at the gorgeous Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Connecticut. This venue is a hidden gem outside of the I-495 corridor, but well within driving distance from the city. The processional of the ceremony was one of my favorite parts of this wedding film, as the sun continuously peaked through the trees as the wedding party made their way down the aisle. Add to that, bride Emily and friend Christine Cardot of HandyGer created an amazing design at the top of the aisle with two painted wooden doors inviting the wedding party towards the orange and yellow-leaved, fall backdrop.

The film starts with the first look, as Emily reads a card Steve wrote to her earlier in the day. From there, the ceremony gives you parts of the couple’s personally-written vows, as we sprinkled them throughout the entire- 21-minute feature film. Add to the vows, a great reading about the “Meaning of Love” and the audio portions of this wedding were priceless. We got to work with one of our favorite photography duos with Brittany Love and Shana Perry of Love and Perry Photography. Credit them with a few of the great set-ups we used within the ceremony portion of the film. I think Jackie at Lord Thompson will have couples duplicating the table and couch set-ups for years to come. Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film from just south of the Massachusetts border in Thompson, Connecticut.

For the second year in a row, JPod Films was happy to be the video sponsor for Eventiques, an event created by New England Wedding Planners Ruthie McDonald and Lauren Mace of Eutopia Events.  Ruthie and Lauren, with an acceptional team of helpers, put together the event which is subtitled, A Wedding and Event Flea Market. The event took place earlier this spring at the Eastworks Building in Easthampton, Massachusetts. Eventiques allows former brides the opportunity to sell their one-time use, wedding related items from wedding dresses to detail-related items like mason jars, lanterns, vases, wine cork placecard holders, linens and so much more. It’s like a live pinterest board in one locations, and everything is for sale. Wedding planners and brides who are planning their big day have the opportunity to find an amazing array of unique items for their event at prices that are much lower than purchasing them brand new. To see what this event is all about, take a 100-second look back at the event that is growing and growing every year!

 

Event Sponsors Included Cakes by Amanda, CJC Event Lighting, Cronin Hill Photography, Daisy Stone Studio, Durocher Florist, Forget Me Not Florist, Lattitude Restaurant, Michael’s Party Rentals, The Knot, Love, Inc. Magazine, Rum and Steel, Viren Entertainment, WellWed and Western Woods Coffee.

 

It has been a fun process over the past 10 years continuing trying to grow and evolve our wedding videography business into something much bigger and better. Well, this week a long term goal of ours was reached, as we have opened a new office space in the heart of Boston. Our Boston wedding filmmaker name of JPod Productions can now be found at 137 Newbury Street! We have partnered with five other great wedding businesses from the city to provide a space for our couples to meet us throughout the wedding planning process. When selecting a space in Boston, Newbury Street was always on the top of our list, because we felt that it matched our brand and the wedding films we are trying to produce.  The girls in my office are excited that we are located in the same building as Hotel Chocolat. We will definitely share more pictures of the space in the coming weeks. We are so excited!

On February 18th, we spent a snowy afternoon with the International Special Events Society’s (ISES) New England Chapter for their monthly meeting at Legal Harborside in the Seaport District of Boston. It was a seafood lovers dream of a meeting with shrimp cocktail, oysters, sushi, and clam chowder on the luncheon menu.

The featured speaker of the day was Roger Berkowitz, President & CEO of Legal Sea Foods. His presentation entitled “Building Your Brand” focused on how Legal Sea Foods has marketed creatively over the past decade to attract younger customers. Within that time, the company has had to adjust their strategies based on consumer reaction to their advertising campaigns, as well as to what was discovered through their market research. Mr. Berkowitz gave plenty of real life samples that kept the presentation informational and enjoyable.

The following highlight video is a quick glimpse into both the social and informational opportunities that ISES presents each month to its members. Sponsors of the meeting included Legal Harborside, Art of the Event, Inc., Black Thumb Studio, Brookline Ice Company, Entertainment Specialists, Gateway ProductionsJPod Productions, Peterson Party Center, and Winston Flowers.
