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.
