Courtney and James were married on familiar turf for us, as their church and reception venue in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts matched that of Kate and Bryan’s wedding from a few years earlier. Beyond the wedding locations, Courtney, James and I bonded quite quickly during our first Skype conversation. Then, when Courtney and I found out that we shared an alma mater in UMASS, Amherst, it was like we were long time friends. I even got invited to take part in the UMASS group photo at the reception! The only bummer in this wedding was that Courtney and James’ dog, Race, was not going to be part of the wedding festivities.

This nautical-themed wedding started with a first look and photo session on the beach at the Hyannisport Yacht Club, which also neighbors the famous Kennedy Estate. The scenic photo session is featured throughout the couple’s wedding film, but it didn’t compare to the amazing sunset photos that were captured later at the Hyannisport Club. The ceremony took place in the quaint Union Chapel, which was standing room only to see Courtney and James exchange amazing, heart-felt vows. The reception moved over to the scenic Hyannisport Club for three great speeches, an amazing sunset and a party that did not stop all evening on the outdoor deck.

We got to work with some great wedding professionals as we filmed along side Molly and Erika from Molly Anne Photography. And, we couldn’t say enough about the band The Sugarbabies out of Boston. Their energy was electric and they kept the dance floor packed all night long. Enjoy our latest Boston Wedding Film.

Our latest Boston Wedding Film actually comes from the ocean shores of Connecticut. Erica and Kevin chose to take advantage of a weekend holiday as they were married on the Fourth of July. We definitely didn’t mind giving up the holiday, as Erica’s Mom is friend of our family. Most of the wedding party and their friends live around us, so there were a lot of familiar faces in attendance for this holiday wedding.

Erica and Kevin, who hail from Massachusetts, are a couple who likes to be around the water. Therefore, Amarante’s Sea Cliff in New Haven was a great choice for their ceremony and reception. The day featured a first look that was threatened by rain, only to see the day get brighter and hotter by the minute. There were plenty of cool details including acoustic music in the ceremony and during dinner, sparklers, town fireworks, a speech aided by a photo montage from Erica’s Dad, and a sweet candy bar. Erica and Kevin’s sweetness really came through, as they each broke down during a card and gift exchange during the preparations.

We go to work a lot of long time friends from the wedding industry including Dave and Eileen Breveglerei of Breveglerei Photography, and DJ and Singer Gary S Jones. Familiar faces always make the day such a pleasure. This Connecticut Shore wedding film starts off with a great story with a funny twist from Erica’s brother Nick. Enjoy the show…

Jenny and Geoff almost didn’t hire us to film their wedding, because Geoff sent the wrong wedding date in his original inquiry. Fortunately, in my reply him, I told him we were not available for his Saturday wedding. In the end, we were available for his Friday night wedding date. So, after a few laughs and a great consultation at our office, Jenny and Geoff added their name to our 2013 Boston wedding film schedule.

Jenny and Geoff were married on the Connecticut shoreline as they hopped between Groton and Norwich, Connecticut for their wedding day festivities. After a getting ready at the Mystic Marriott, and getting married at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the evening finished off at the beautiful Branford House on the Groton campus of UCONN. The mansion-styled building neighbors the Atlantic Ocean and a light house on the rocks, which provides tremendous views and a plethora of photo session opportunities.

The following wedding film clip features Jenny and Geoff’s photo session, reception details and cocktail hour. It’s always an upbeat section in our feature film, as it brings out the excitement and energy on the wedding day at the conclusion of the wedding ceremony. We shared the time with Katie Slater Photography, who was a treat to work with throughout the day. Katie’s pictures were published in the Oh Lovely Day blog last month and you can view those pictures HERE. But first, enjoy our most recent Boston wedding video clip:
