Paige and Eric were married on a beautiful August day last summer at the scenic Wianno Club along the ocean waters of Osterville, Massachusetts. It was a simple, classic Cape Cod wedding with a natural feel including a color palette filled with greens and whites. Paige got ready at the family’s nearby home and traveled over to the Wianno Club in a vintage car with her Dad. From there, the rest of the wedding day unfolded in and around the beautiful “shingle-styled” building along the Atlantic Ocean.

The beautiful grounds of the Wianno Club played backdrop to the couple’s first look and a photo session that included the couple venturing onto a gorgeous rock formation overlooking the ocean. After a pre-ceremony cocktail reception with sparkling champagne, the couple exchanged vows in front of the ocean as the sun came out to warm up the event. During the cocktail hour, Paige and her parents arranged a surprise for Eric as a plane flew by with a banner that read “Paige and Eric: Shipmates Forever”. The decor of the event included an array of hydrangeas that made the wedding day so elegant from beginning to end. The wonderful speeches revolved around the great character of these two as their paths crossed on the campus of Cornell University.

We were fortunate to work alongside Lisa Rigby of Lisa Rigby Photography. The wedding was planned by Elegant Engagements of Cape Cod. This was a blessing as the on-site vendor team of Megan, Erica, and Sara from Elegant Engagements were on top of every detail and made the whole day run so smoothly. Enjoy this quintessential Cape Cop wedding film…

Laura and Adam ended our spring rush of weddings this year and it could not have been a better way to end the month of June. We met the new Mr. and Mrs. Ruchim through Tasha Bracken at Tasha Bracken Events, and it could not have been a better match. I love when a groom puts an equal amount of positive energy, input and personality into the wedding day. From the moment we met Laura and Adam right through the process of creating a pre-wedding video for their rehearsal dinner video, we just connected on all wave lengths. We knew this was going to be an awesome Boston wedding film.

It was a mix of the big cities, as Chicago and Boston came together for this wedding. Laura grew up in the Boston area, while Adam’s family is from the Chicago area. The two came together while they were both working in New York City. This meeting was an instant connection that carried right through to the wedding day. These two just have an electricity around them that shows you that they are meant to be together.

This classic and elegant wedding took place at the Four Seasons on Boylston Street in Boston. With the perfect touches from Suzanne B Lowell Lighting and Design, the ceremony took on the most romantic feel. During the ceremony, the couple’s vows were captivating and hilarious in the same breath. The reception had such a great energy from the first dance to the tremendous series of toasts to a dance party that never slowed down throughout the night.

The couple chose to have multiple videos to remember their wedding day. Below is the couple’s wedding trailer film, as well as their final Short Film which is the most popular choice out of all of our Boston wedding films. Get ready to laugh, cry and feel all the feels of Laura and Adam’s wedding day.

We loved seeing these two families come together as Alex, the Boston girl, was blending with Alex and his Dominican Republic background. The wedding came together as one that was chic with clean lines, while incorporating a little bit of a Caribbean feel through the location, flowers and music. The mix of cultures added to the couple’s great personalities really allowed this Boston wedding film to flourish.

With the wedding taking place on Nantucket, it definitely brought on the island feel that was familiar to much of Ellery’s family. The day was an overcast “grey lady” day on the island with an added strong breeze off the ocean waters arising during the ceremony. The film opens with local artist Sergio Roffo rendering a new painting of the Sankaty Head Light which added some sweet Nantucket character to this wedding film. After the girls finished getting ready at the family’s house on the island, the scene shifted over to the scenic Sankaty Beach Club. Ellery and the gentlemen finished getting ready at the club before the ceremony took place over looking the ocean waters.

The reception moved down the road to the Sankaty Head Golf Club which sits not too far from the Sankaty Head Light that opens this Nantucket wedding film. The reception was filled with so many smiling faces, amazing speeches, a birthday cake for both the Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom, and dancing…lots of dancing! The band Clique had the dance floored packed all night long with an array of music which even included some outstanding salsa dancing. The night ended with Alex’s brothers (with help) decorating a black Audi convertible and the couple exiting through their guests to ride away in that car on their first night as a married couple. I hope you enjoy our latest Feature Film.

We met Heather and Chris organically as they found our wedding films online and reached out to us. Once we met for our first consultation, I knew these two were an ideal JPod Films’ couple. They each had fun, easy going personalities and it was easy to tell that they saw the value in a quality wedding film. Once their parents saw our work, Heather said “booking us was a must”. So they did and I was really excited about sharing in their wedding day.

Heather and Chris started their day by getting ready at the Lenox Hotel and the vibe was so energetic and fun. The girls were telling great stories about when Heather and Chris first met, while the boys were yelling and screaming over last-minute World Cup goals. As the preparations continued, the couple each gave sentimental gifts to their parents and each other which really brought a great warmth to their Boston wedding film. The couple transitioned to the Boston Public Library for the rest of their wedding day which started with a great first look at the top of the library staircase. After a pre-ceremony photo session, the couple were married in the library’s courtyard and the ceremony featured heart-felt and extremely well-written vows. The night continued with lots of high fives, elegant decor and high energy dance party. We loved how the couple incorporated their favorite old-school music into the ceremony and reception, as Africa by Toto was used in the ceremony and You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall and Oates was used for their first dance song.

We were lucky to work alongside the uber-talented Kate McElwee and the band Beantown from Wilson Stevens. True professionals like that always make the day flow so seamlessly. Enjoy Heather and Chris’ Boston wedding film from the BPL!

Ever since we filmed Kate + Bryan’s wedding in Hyannisport in 2014, the small residential village has been one of our favorite and most visited locations on Cape Cod for our Boston wedding films. This time, it was another Bryan with a “Y”, as Jacqui and Bryan were getting married in this gorgeous little nook on the Cape. This New York City couple grew up on the Cape, but they found us organically after seeing Kate and Bryan’s wedding at their same reception venue, The Hyannisport Club.

Jacqui got ready in her parent’s quintessential Cape home and her morning with the girls had so many cute little moments from her flower girl’s innocent sassiness to the first looks that she did with her Dad and her bridesmaids. Bryan got ready nearby and the boys in their blue suits with light blue ties were dressed to impress. A beautiful church ceremony at Our Lady of Assumption was followed by a nice, but quick photo shoot by the water as some quick moving showers passed through the area. The reception took place at the beautiful Hyannisport Club, which boasts one of the best looking sunsets on the Cape because of its southwest location on the Hyannisport peninsula.

We got to work alongside the talented Todd Wilson Images duo of Todd and Sarah, while the band Splash from Wilson Stevens came down from Boston to rock the party all night long. Not only was there a constant, packed dance floor, but the dance party ended with the newlyweds up in the air much like you would see in the hora dance at a Jewish wedding. The bride and groom finished the night with a sparkler exit which capped off a perfect Boston wedding film on Cape Cod.

By choosing the Willowdale Estate for their wedding, Kathryn and John Pasinski really found a venue that captured their love for the outdoors. Their wedding brought many parts of the country together with Texas and mid-western charm and the many New England ties which combining into a “elegant and fun” event as Kathryn put it. This couple, who met on online, had a great connection that really comes through in their Boston wedding film.

Kathryn and John both got ready in the morning at the Willowdale Estate in separate ends of the building before meeting for a first look outside on the beautiful property in Topsfield, Massachusetts. Their photo session was interrupted by a quick moving, but hard hitting thundershower. Fortunately, the rained moved past in time for a classic, Willowdale ceremony in front of the beautifully stoned building. The reception followed under the venue’s large tent, which was a feature that drew Kathryn and John to this property. We loved the array of details that you will see throughout the film including the initial on the front door, the lawn games made available during cocktail hour and the gorgeous tablescapes and wrapped beams created by Gregory and his team at Flou(-e)r Specialty Floral Events.

The couple exchanged personal written vows that really put an intimate touch on the wedding, while Kathryn’s father’s toast was one filled with love and sentiment. We loved working with Zev Fisher of Zev Fischer Photography, and the band Young Love and the Thrills kept the party rocking all night long. The couple exited the wedding with a pom pom send off, as the couple rode off to begin their married life together.

Bri + John found us through one of our favorite couples in Becky and Matt Hall. Their Vermont wedding pulled us out of Boston for a picturesque weekend in the quaint town of Dorset. With a northern location in the Green Mountains of Vermont, the leaves were just starting to turn on this September weekend which provided a great landscape for the photo session, as well as during other parts on the day.

The entire wedding took place within walking distance, as the preparations, the ceremony and the reception were almost all on the same street. The preps were filled with laughter and included a sentimental gift exchange between the couple. After a first look in the mountains, the couple were married in the United Church of Dorset. It was one of those small, adorable churches with lots of character.

The reception brought us directly across the street to the Dorset Field Club for an elongated cocktail hour on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Bri and John’s reception took place under a beautiful tent at the Dorset Field Club. The Field Club is actually the oldest continuously operated gold course in the United States. We enjoyed sharing the day with Alexandra Roberts and the super friendlyTara Pollio from Tara Pollio Floral Event Design. Enjoy our latest Boston wedding film from the Green Mountains of Vermont.

We met Maggie and Matt through a mutual friend of ours and Maggie and I hit it off right away when we first talked. We were excited as this Boston wedding film was going to be the first one ever at the JFK Library and Museum. Although the Library and Museum has been in existence since 1979, 2017 was the first year that this beautiful space began hosting weddings. And, what a space it is! Between the towering windows and ocean views from the cocktail hour space to the 10 acre property outside, to the reception space with endless possibilities, this venue has quickly established itself as one of the elite wedding venues in Boston.

Maggie and Matt’s wedding fit the space perfectly, as elegant was the perfect word to explain every part of their wedding. As I say that, I kind of laugh. Because, even though Maggie and Matt carry that elegance, they have a cute, quirky side that makes them such a great couple. Throughout the day, you could see how connected they were with their inside jokes and continued laughter.

The wedding preps took place at another iconic space, the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston. It had such a great, relaxed feel all morning. You knew the bride was relaxed when she started steaming bridesmaids dresses. The day really got going as Maggie and Matt did a first look in the light rain outside the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. In the wedding film, the couple’s great connection really comes through during this first meeting. The rain stuck around for much of the day, but we were still able to sneak in an outdoor photo session under the trees in the Boston Public Gardens. The night continued into the JFK Library and Museum, which was transformed into an amazing space between the work of New Leaf Flores, DesignLight, and the JFK coordinator Jeannie Spence. We also have to add that we loved the post dinner treats and snacks – Blackbird Donuts and Fenway Franks. Thats a win-win! Enjoy our latest Boston wedding film from the city’s newest sophisticated venue.

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.

We met Stephanie and James through our good friends, Katie and Casey, at Katie O. Weddings & Events. With Stephanie’s roots in Boston and the couple having lived in New York City for a while, Stephanie and James chose the Berkshires as a middle ground for their wedding day. They found Gedney Farm to be the perfect location. It provided the natural outdoor setting combined with a rustic feel that they were looking for and it was a beautiful backdrop for our latest Boston wedding film.

The couple had a picture perfect summer day in the Berkshires, as the two got ready in opposite ends of the lodging barn. After a first look and pre-ceremony photo session, the couple was married up on the property’s most picturesque piece of land in front a vast and iconic oak tree. The couple wrote short declarations to each other, which they both read providing an amazing personal touch to the wedding ceremony. The reception moved into the rustic barn on Gedney Farm and included a heartfelt speeches from Stephanie’s sister, Kimberly, and James’ Best Man, Omar. The First Class Band took it from there with the party only stopping one time during the night, and that was for a surprise fireworks show in the neighboring skyline.

With the help of Casey from Katie O, the couple surrounded us with great vendors for this event including the ultra-talented Trisha McCormack Photography. The couple chose greenery and a soft pallet of flowers for their reception decor, which was executed to perfection by Kris Ann Elario and her team from Fleurtatcious Designs. This latest Boston wedding film displays what a wedding outside of the city can look like when planned perfectly.
