We met Katie’s Mom, Sue, through several local wedding professionals who date back to our earliest days of filming in the Western Massachusetts area. Katie and Pete Pasciucco were a Boston couple who was trekking back to Katie’s hometown in Northampton, Massachusetts to get married. We were blessed to have the opportunity to share in not only the wedding day, but in the rehearsal dinner as well for our latest Boston Wedding Film.

One of the biggest storylines of this wedding was the size of the wedding party. Fifteen bridesmaids and fifteen groomsmen joined 3 flower girls on this wedding weekend. Katie’s friends spanned from her sister as the maid-of-honor, to first cousins, to soccer friends who played by her side at Williston-Northampton, Boston College and Amherst College. The bond of friendship and family was very evident for both Katie and Pete. To add to the importance of family, Katie and Pete were married at Blessed Sacrament Church in Northampton, the same church Katie’s parents were married in 33 years earlier.

The reception took place at the scenic Log Cabin in Holyoke, which rests on the side of The Mt. Tom and overlooks the Western Mass. valley. We were blessed to work with Chris Degray of And the Beat Goes On DJ. Chris works with owner Dan Cavanaugh, who are both insanely talented at what they do and my favorite names to see on the wedding information sheet each wedding season. Crystal Vazquez & Co’s team did an amazing job getting 20+ girls ready for the wedding, on time, and looking gorgeous I might add. Our old television friend Kathy Bunnell of Bunnell Photography worked alongside us throughout the day seamlessly, and the flowers were designed by the same person who created my wedding day flowers in Heather Sullivan from Durocher Florist. This Boston wedding film takes you on a fantastic ride of sentimental moments and tremendous laughter, joy and positive energy. Enjoy the show…

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!

Today starts a new series of blog posts that we will feature a video wedding tip with the hopes of helping brides and grooms plan that perfect day. Today’s video wedding tip is one of the simplest things to do, but yet, very few people know how to do it correctly. I’m talking about pinning a boutonniere on a gentleman’s suit jacket. I have enlisted Heather Sullivan of Durocher’s Florist of West Springfield to deliver the details. Heather also introduces the idea of a magnetic boutonniere, which is more expensive but foolproof at the same time. The only limitation on the magnetic boutonniere is that it cannot be used on anyone wearing a pacemaker. I must also thank Bancroft Bridals in Agawam, who graciously offering their suit jackets and store space to shoot the quick tip. This tip is short enough to upload, or download right to a mobile device, so it may be downloaded off of the vimeo.com website.

It’s time to turn our focus on some of the vendors that provide the details of the wedding day. The florist I always turn to in the Western Massachusetts area is Durocher Florist and they are my vendor of the month for October. I trust them so much that I used them for my own wedding nine years ago, and they are still my ‘go to’ florist for special deliveries to my wife.

It all starts with wedding coordinator Heather Sullivan who is one of those people in the wedding business that “gets it”. I’ve seen roses, gerber daisies, orchids and hydrangeas all look fantastic in Heather’s amazing bouquets, boutonnieres, or table displays. Heather will make you feel comfortable from the first meeting right up to your wedding day. Durocher Florist is always dependable and on time with their wedding day flowers. Since going into business in 2005, I have never come across a late or incorrect delivery, or an unsatisfied bride who used Durocher as their florist.

Durocher Florist will always tell you to clip, clip, clip! Those wedding magazines may have a lot of information that does not pertain to you, but clipping out bouquets, flower girl ideas, boutonnieres, center pieces and other flower arrangements will help you create a vision for your wedding day. Look below for some samples of Durocher’s outstanding work.
