This one has been on the website for a while, but we thought we’d share it on the blog on Katie and Shaun’s one-year anniversary. I consider it one of the best storytelling wedding films of 2011. The story of a two people, who lived in Boston but came from different backgrounds, coming together to make an awesome couple was a truly fun wedding to film and edit together.

The wedding ceremony was in Kate’s hometown of Ludlow, MA with a bus ride taking us to the reception at the Salem Cross Inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. The following wedding feature film clip starts during the bridal prep and continues through the ceremony and Kate’s vows. The clip shows the high energy and romantic swings within our wedding films, as the second half of the bridal preps has an energetic feel before the wedding film slows down for the beautiful ceremony.

We were fortunate to work with some great professionals with Jennifer Corridan from Jennifer Corridan Photography, while Greg Bedard from Greg Bedard DJ Entertainement kept one of the best dancing crowds we’ve seen in a while on their feet all night long. Katie’s flowers were from Carey’s Flowers in South Hadley, while her dress came from Manhattan Bridal in Dedham, Massachusetts.

One thing we have very little control over as filmmakers is the content of wedding toasts. The better they are, the better our feature films tend to be. Marco Louvitakis, father of bride Katie Mocciolo (Louvitakis), had to be coerced into making a speech at his daughter’s summer wedding at the Salem Cross Inn, but it was could have been one of the best decisions in the wedding planning process. Now, this Boston couple has a wedding film that incorporates an amazing speech reflecting on the past and providing guidance for the future.

Most people who deliver a 5-minute toast will have talked for 3-4 minutes too long. But, not this dad’s speech. Marco’s toast took 150 people on a roller coaster of laughs and tears, while doing the most important thing of all – telling the bride and groom’s story. Telling stories about the couple during the toasts is one of the top ten things that I recommend you try and suggest to improve your wedding film. His opening story of meeting his now son-in-law Shaun tells a lot about how these newlyweds didn’t appear to be the right match on paper. These types of stories help us as filmmakers create films that bring out the personality of a newly married couple. Parts of this speech were spread out over the complete cinematic wedding film, but this is the speech in its entirety…

Great vendors we worked with at this event were Jennifer Corridan Photography and Greg Bedard DJ Entertainment.
