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!

After spending several weeks of shooting Boston wedding videos, Liz and Jon were the first of two springtime weddings in the beautiful Berkshires of Massachusetts. The couple, who met in their hometown of Longmeadow, had a history that dated back to their childhood days. Rabbi Shapiro chose to reference Jewish writer Bernard Malamud’s Novel The Natural, as the perfect comparison to the couple. The novel about Baseball player Roy Hobbs had an obvious connection with Jon being a former baseball player himself, but the novel really matched the couple in the sense that Liz and Jon were just so natural together. We loved shooting and editing this film, because the glow of each of their faces was exactly what it should be on a wedding day, glowing and “natural”.

One of the best parts of the day was the couple’s first look, as Jon was just blown away by his bride to be. It was one of the best reactions we have ever seen. And, rightfully so, as Liz looked spectacular in her Monique Lhuillier dress from Kleinfelds and her Jimmy Choo shoes.

Liz and Jon were married at the Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club in Lenox, MA. It was the first wedding film for us in the newly remodeled ballroom at the Cranwell. The ballroom now has a much more modern, elegant feel as the tall windows have been exposed with new drapery and the columns have been removed to open up the space dramatically. And, it still felt like a Boston wedding film, as the Boston Band Legit kept the party rocking all night long.

We met Annoula and Mike through a vendor referral and we hit it off right away. Although she grew up in Massachusetts, Annoula was planning the wedding from her current home in the Cincinnati, Ohio area. We met whenever she was home and by the time our final meeting came along, we had built a great client-vendor relationship.

Annoula stayed close to her roots getting married at the Saint George Greek Orthodox Cathedral in the North End of Springfield. The wedding resembled one held in Boston with the bride’s style, a downtown photo shoot and large reception venue. Annoula and Mike hired a band for some traditional Greek dancing during the reception which added great energy to the reception. Another plus to the day was that we got to work with great vendors including Dave and Eileen from Breveglerei Photography, Dan Cavanaugh from And the Beat Goes On DJ, and Samantha from the Springfield Sheraton. Music from the trailer was licensed through The Music Bed.

The vendor of the month is rated as the top resort in Massachusetts by resortsandlodges.com. The Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club in Lenox, Massachusetts is right at the top of my list of favorite places to shoot a wedding year after year. The Cranwell, located in the beautiful Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts, offers an impeccable outdoor ceremony site that includes a gorgeous mountain backdrop and a stunning staircase to begin the bride’s walk down the aisle.

Every reception that I have attended at the Resort has run flawlessly, no matter if it was held inside the ballroom or outside in the tent. The ballroom boasts tall ceilings and beautiful design, which fits many different wedding sizes. The outdoor tent provides a second great option, as the Cranwell boasts one of the few sites where your reception can stay in the fresh air. And hats off to the Chef, as the sea bass is the best wedding dish I’ve tasted. The bridal suite is a generously-sized two-room layout that is ideal for a bride’s preparations. Photo options are unlimited with charming choices inside and gorgeous views and architecture outside which translates to stunning photos and a beautiful wedding film.
