There are certain couples that just compliment each other so well. With Zach and Chris, you have an outgoing personality and a quiet personality. A doctor and a banker. A runner and a weight lifter. But when you see them together, it is so obvious how well they balance each other out. They bring out the best in each other and I absolutely love that about these two in our latest Boston Wedding Film.

Zach and Chris were married on a beautiful November evening at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square. The romantic night time setting was one that was as sweet as these two are when they are together. The couple got ready at the Boston Fairmont Copley Plaza and did photos prior to the ceremony in and around the city at locations that were special to the couple. One of those spots was the Trophy Room where the couple first met. At that location, we were also able to meet their lovable yellow Labrador Ezra, as Zach and Chris took some photos with him. It also let us tie in one of the readings from the ceremony, which was entitled, “How Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog”.

The reception included some heartfelt speeches that truly showed the family’s support for this same-sex couple. Zach and Chris were married during the Mannequin Challenge-phase of 2016 and they included one in their reception as everyone in their wedding party struck a pose. We also worked with some of our favorite wedding professionals including Jill for Person and Killian Photography and the Eye 2 Eye Band from Wilson Stevens Productions. Enjoy out latest Boston Wedding Film!

We met Sammie and Jeff through our friends Edna and Kasie at EFD Creative Event Planning and Design. What makes these two such a great couple is that they love each for exactly who each person is and has become. To quote the sarcastic Jeff is his vows, “I vow to be a quality roommate. I’ll work hard to drastically improve my home improvement and handyman skills to a solid ‘below-average'”. To quote Sammie in her vows, “I will continue to play games with you, even when we grow old and can’t remember the rules.” It was a Boston wedding film that I really think shows how we incorporate each couple’s personalities uniquely into each final film.

Sammie and Jeff and the team at EFD Creative did a marvelous job creating a beautiful and elegant wedding day throughout. The ballroom looked amazing for the reception and you can see how amazed the bride was in this video that we released shortly after the wedding. We loved the details that featurd the #gettinggrilloed hashtag that played off Jeff’s last name, as well as the superhero cufflinks that Jeff incorporated.

We were so lucky to work with so many great wedding professionals beyond the EFD Creative team and the Boston Harbor Hotel staff. David and Jo from Allegro Photography were our visual counterparts, while so much of the beautiful decor came from the talents of Orly Kohn Floral Boutique, Suzanne B Lowell Lighting Design and Cakes to Remember. Enjoy this perfect summer day on the Boston Harbor in our latest Boston Wedding Film.
