The Wedding Film of Maryellen & Chris at the Indian Pond Country Club

Maryellen and Chris are an adorable couple. It was so obvious on their wedding day how truly in love they are. They both radiated sunshine on an otherwise misty, gray day. If there is an opposite of "Bridezilla," that would be Maryellen, or "Melon" as her family and friends call her. She was so calm and collected and smiling the entire day.  A little drizzly rain on her wedding day?  No biggie. You could tell her and Chris were the perfect team when Chris scooped her up to take her across the damp golf course for photos with no hesitation.

As Maryellen's father mentioned in his FOB speech, the two of them are "ultimate planners." It showed tremendously through the style and elegance of their reception. The Indian Pond Country Club is an elegant and bright South Shore venue that was perfect for these two.

They had gorgeous flower arrangements done by their close friend, a guest at the wedding who recently started her own flower business (Flowers By Emily). She even "flowered" the cake, which looked incredible!

Becca & Russell's Roaring 20's Themed Wedding at UTEC Lowell

Becca and Russell had an urban, Roaring 20’s themed wedding at UTEC in Lowell, Massachusetts.  It was a rather cool, fall day, but that didn’t stop this awesome couple from doing their first look and photos outside.

The style at this wedding was one for the books. Despite the freezing cold, guests were invited to show up in their best 1920’s themed attire and they certainly didn’t disappoint! The lovely bride wore a gorgeous unconventional pink wedding dress with a fur shawl, definitely necessary for a cool, fall wedding! The bridesmaids each wore different flapper-esque dresses complete with sequin and feathers. It all came together so nicely, I love how all the different dresses worked so well together!

Becca and Russell both incorporated their Italian and Haitian cultures into their wedding. They each brought with them a flag, one Italian flag and one Haitian flag, to incorporate into their video and photos. We found this to be such a unique way to honor their cultures, and super fun to shoot! Another highlight of their wedding was the food...they had some of the best wedding food we’ve had! The catering was done by Russell’s sister and included the best combination of Haitian and Italian cuisine. In lieu of a wedding cake, the couple decided to cut and feed each other pie! They even had a variety of different mini pies for their guests to enjoy. Speaking of guests, they certainly knew how to get down on the dance floor!  We loved capturing everyone dancing in their 1920’s attire. It was almost like we were sent back in time!  And did I mention the couple’s first dance?! Becca is a professional dancer, so it was no surprise that their first dance was a choreographed masterpiece!

We made sure to consider their 1920’s theme while editing their wedding video, and incorporated a little 20’s silent film flare into the reception portion of the video!

Happy National Wedding Planning Day! Have you booked your Videographer yet?

It's National Wedding Planning day! If you're recently engaged, you've probably already started thinking about your wedding details- your date, your venue, etc. You may already even have a photographer who took your engagement photos. But have you given any thought to a wedding videographer? 

Couples often push wedding videography to the side until closer to their date and some decide to totally forgo it for their big day. I'm here today to tell you to hire a videographer at your wedding- I cannot stress this enough! Maybe I am a bit bias, but honestly, video is the only way to truly relive your wedding day.  Photographs are great, but it is 2018 and photos just aren’t enough.  I cannot fathom the thought of having my entire wedding day pass me by without ever again hearing my vows, or the words my father said in his welcome speech, or the roaring laughter of guests during the best man speech.  The raw emotion caught on camera, the real sounds and words spoken will never come across the same way in photographs as they do in video. That being said, it is 2018 and couples still struggle with the thought of hiring a wedding videographer.

Photography is the norm, right? Everyone hires a wedding photographer. In fact, it’s probably one of the first things people think about once they get engaged.  I certainly have nothing against photography, I think it is very important and a necessity for your wedding- but I also think wedding videography does not get the credit it deserves. The time, effort and creative ability it takes to handcraft a wedding film- in my opinion, far surpasses that of photography. It takes an enormous amount of time going through all the many hours of footage from the day. We spend days, even weeks after your wedding going through all the footage, carefully choosing music, and hand-crafting a one-of-a-kind, cinematic video that is unique to you and your wedding day. It takes a tremendous amount of creative ability and talent to create a video that not only looks good, but flows good as well.

That being said, I cannot stress enough how important it is to hire a good videographer. Like everything else in the world, there is always a difference in quality in the products and services you buy- and this doesn’t change for wedding videography.  To be honest, you get what you pay for.  If you want to hire the cheapest videographer you can find, you will likely receive a not-so-great product and be left with a feeling of regret for not spending the extra dollars for hiring someone more experienced.  When it comes to wedding videography, you want to hire people you can trust- people who are not only passionate about what they do, but who have proper experience and education.  Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion that has months and months of preparation and build up, and then in a flash, it’s gone.  Once it’s ended, all you have left are the photos and what you can remember in your mind. Your wedding film is the only way to actually go back and relive, and actually hear the laughter, the speeches, your vows! How amazing is it that we live in a time where we have the capabilities to capture all the details of that very special day.

But even so, couples still struggle with the cost of hiring a videographer.  If you’re in this boat, let me ask you a question- how much are you spending on the floral arrangements at your wedding? The bouquets, the centerpieces, the flowers for your ceremony... How much are you putting towards your dress? Your cake? Your DJ? The truth is that all of the things you're spending money on, with the exception of your photographer, aren't going to last beyond your big day. The flowers will die, the decorations will be thrown out, the surplus of dessert will go bad, and all that will be left from the most important day of your life is nothing but a mere memory. That's why it is SO important to invest in the things that will preserve your wedding day forever.  Videography is the best investment you will make for your big day, simply because it is the only way you will be able to truly relive your wedding.     

So the next time you are contemplating on getting videography for your wedding, I hope you sincerely understand it's value.  Investing in videography should not be a question. It should not take a second thought. Seriously, if you’re reading this, you’re getting married! That’s so exciting! It’s going to be one of the greatest days of your life, but let me tell will fly by. You only get one wedding, so remember to invest in the things that will last beyond the day. Do yourself a favor and hire a wedding videographer! I can say with the utmost certainty that you will not regret it, but I can guarantee you will regret it if you choose not to get one! 

If you are interested in videography, but don't know where to start, please contact Mark and I and we would be happy to share the options we have! We are currently booking for 2018 & 2019 dates. We have limited availability for 2018, so don't wait to reach out! 

Jamie + Josh // Salem Cross Inn, West Brookfield, MA

Jamie and Josh were married at the Salem Cross Inn, a restored 18th century farmhouse on the countryside of Western Massachusetts. It was such a beautiful fall day and we were happy to be guests at this wedding and see my cousin marry the love of his life!

Since this was a wedding in my family, we got our video friends Evan & Jess to shoot this special occasion for us! Mark and I loved putting this film together and sharing it with our family.  Their emotional reactions and comments were priceless- and exactly the reason why we love filming weddings in the first place. 

Jamie's reaction after watching her film:

     "What’s funny is on my wedding day I don’t think I shed a tear...the closest I came was right before my mom and I walked down the aisle. But when I watched this video I a good way of course! I can’t express how grateful I am- we’re so lucky to have this to cherish for years to come!"

These words mean so much to us! It makes us proud as filmmakers to be able reach someone on such an emotional level when they relive their wedding day. It's in those moments that makes us so happy to be part of such a sentimental and timeless industry.
