There are certain couples that just have it! I can’t completely define “it”, but Jenny and Dave have it. It’s a look, an energy, a smile that just makes you feel good. And, I know it inspires me. It also makes it easy to create awesome Boston wedding films.

Jenny + Dave met through friends, but it took a few meetings before these two officially started dating. We met Jenny and Dave way back in 2015, and we just connected with them immediately. It felt like we had known them for years after just 10 minutes of talking. We became social media friends, even following their dog Skylar’s Instagram page (if you didn’t know, we love dogs).  Their Cape Cod wedding was one that we had circled on our calendar all year long.

We started the day just a stone’s throw from the water at Jenny’s parents Cape Cod vacation home, while Dave and his boys got ready at a second house just a few blocks inland. The wedding and reception took place at the Oyster Harbors Club in Osterville, MA. There is nothing like a perfect day weather-wise when you can spend it along the water. We got to work with one of our favorite photographers in Randall Garnick, as we mesh so well with his relaxed personality and dry sense of humor

It’s great when a groom writes awesome vows like Dave did, but it is even more amazing when he delivers them with an unmatched love and passion for his bride. That was the one part of the day that stood out to me the most in a wedding with so, so many great moments. So, for their wedding trailer film, we focused on the passion, the love and the delivery of Dave’s words. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding film which was given as a surprise gift from Dave to Jenny on Christmas Eve. (Photo Credit – Randall Garnick Photography).

In 2016, we started building an amazing relationship with wedding and event design powerhouse SD Events (Simple Details Events). Not only did we film one of their amazing Cape Cod weddings this fall, but we started sharing space with them and Allegro Photography in Wellesley, MA last March. The thing that I like most about Tasha Bracken and her team is the way they make the wedding day run smoother without getting in the way. Tasha, Priscilla and Lindsay know when they need to step in and take control, and when to step back and let the day flow. They are a planning team that works in unison with each professional to maximize the impact of each service provided. If you don’t want to take my word for how good they are, listen to groom Konrad Martin talk about SD Events at his wedding…

 

Our SD Event designed wedding took place at the Chatham Bars Inn in November of this year with a clambake rehearsal dinner, a classic Catholic ceremony in Brewster and a lavish reception that included the couple flying in the same pianist who played the music during their first ever dance together. Below is the couple’s wedding trailer film, which is a preview of their longer Boston wedding film that is yet to come. (photo credit – Allegro Photography)

 

Speeches at the wedding are one of our favorite, as well as most important moments of the day. We always tell our couples to make sure that their toast-givers tell stories about the couple. How did they meet? What makes them a great couple? You get the gist. But, at the same time, we don’t want to take away the toast-givers connection to the bride and groom.

In the fall of 2014, Best Man Chris Holmes gave a speech to Katie and Mike Barbin that had the ballroom of the Cranwell Resort Spa and Golf Club in stitches. The main story that Chris told was why he knew that Mike was his best friend. It’s a story that is worth the punchline. Therefore, on June 8th, we honor Best Friends Day with one of the best, and funniest stories about friends you will here at a wedding. Share it with your best friend…

 

 

Make sure you budget for a wedding video or film. It is easy for me to say, because it’s my passion. Not getting a wedding video or film continuosly lands on, or tops the list of regrets for couples after the wedding. If you don’t believe me, check out this article from the Huffington Post. Well, the wedding filmmaking community is strong in the Boston area, as the majority of the top filmmakers in Beantown collaborate on a regular basis to improve our crafts. That is why I am not hesitant to have our Newbury St. neighbors Kathy and George Horemotis of S.H. Videography give our latest wedding tip about wedding films on our blog. Boston Wedding Group members Kathy and George talk about budget and what one of the common mistakes couples make in the wedding planning process.

 

Over the last few years, wedding videography has transformed into wedding cinematography and in the process, wedding cinematography has moved up the ladder on today’s bride’s vendor priority lists. This week, the Knot joined the growing list of wedding experts that is encouraging brdies to invest in a modern day wedding film. In their article, “Thinking of Cutting Video? Read this First.”, the Knot.com exposes many of the things that make today’s wedding films so valuable. In addition to the unobtrusiveness of today’s small DSLR cameras, the importance of audio, capturing all the moments between the photographs and cool trends like same day edits are making wedding cinematography a sought after commodity of the wedding day.
