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 continue to film at new wedding venues every year across New England, but one group of venues has really made an impression on us. Longwood Events out of Boston, Cape Cod, Newport and Nantucket has six top-notch wedding sites and they are our Vendor of the Month for October.

We last worked in the heart of Boston at the State Room  this past summer, as we teamed with Bob Manning, who owns Robert Charles Films out of Savannah, GA and Pittsburgh, PA. The former New Englander contacted us to shoot with him as he created a Boston wedding video which I have shared below. The State Room sits on the top of 60 State Street and provides tremendous views of the Boston Harbor and other sights in Downtown Boston. In June, we were lucky enough to enjoy a ceremony and reception in the State Room. I have shared a few photos from the State Room below.

The other venues that are part of the Longwood group are the incredible Belle Mer which is an oceanfront property in Newport, Rhode Island. A second waterside location is the Wychmere Beach Club in Harwich, Massachusetts on the south side of Cape Cod. Both of these locations have incredible ceremony and reception options for a Newport or Cape Cod Wedding video. A fourth location is Alden Castle which is a modern vintage venue in the center of Boston. The last two sites are the laid back Nantucket Beach Club on Jetties Beach in Nantucket and the intimate Longwood Bateau which can accommodate up to 8 people for an event on the water.

I love the professionalism that is displayed at these venues, as they are tops in New England for service, attention to detail and overall delivery to their couples. Below is a Boston wedding video from the State Room that I was part of in June. As mentioned earlier, I teamed with an out of town company to bring the Boston highlight video to the couple. So, if you’re looking for a top-notch wedding reception venue with elegance and modern style, check out Longwood Events.
