Charlie + Maggie at The Mansion on Turner Hill

“I wondered on occasion about the man who would meet us on the end of that walk.”

Speaking as a father of two young daughters myself, these words really resonated with me that day because that very thing crosses my mind as well. The gravity of THAT moment is a powerful force and I’m particularly sensitive to it when I witness it, especially when the closeness of father and daughter is as palpable as it was between Maggie and her dad. Nikki and I are so blessed to be able to not only witness this, and moments like them, but to know they’ll be preserved forever. This was our first time filming at The Mansion on Turner Hill and both of us were immediately overwhelmed by the beauty of this location. We hope this film reflects how the beauty of the location and the love Maggie and Charlie shared were a perfect match. Thanks for watching! Enjoy!

Jason + Mer : Rivermill at Dover Landing

We are very excited to be sharing a few of the many amazing moments that made up Jason and Mer’s wedding day. From the moment we arrived, the excitement in the air was palatable. It was so cool to be able to setup a 1st look with Mer’s dad. Nikki and I had so much fun all day long. Rivermill is an incredible location and provided the perfect backdrop for everything that followed. Thank you, Jason and Mer, for having us along. Every wedding we film is unique and we always feel very lucky to be able to help couples see their day from so many perspectives they can’t. Imagine all that planning, being the center of attention, and now you get the opportunity to see it all from your guests perspective. What a gift you give yourselves, your marriage and future generations getting to see how it all began.Thanks for watching!

Meghan + Collin Highlights Film

We’re really excited to share Meghan and Collin’s highlight film. We are particularly touched by how it came to be that we were able to document such and incredible event. As you may or may not know, professional video is not a priority for most weddings. For a few , it’s the preconception that a wedding film is necessarily boring and won’t get watched but once or twice. For many, the budget gets swallowed up before a video is even considered. Whatever the case may be, we pretty consistently hear that it was the biggest regret for those that didn’t get one. Enter Meghan and Collin’s bridal party. Benjy and Katie, having had us film their wedding, were (together with the rest of the bridal party) inspired to give a hindsight wedding film as a gift to them. We are humbled and amazed by the powerful testimony this is for what we do. We can’t even imagine how valuable the reminder of this day will be for their marriage decades from now. Great idea. Great couple. Thanks for watching! Please share with anyone you know who doesn’t have a wedding film on their checklist.

Here are some of the professionals who made magic as well:

  • Cake: Sister of groom, Rachel Kilpatrick (this cake was simple and beautiful; good job Rachel!)

 

Kris & Gina

Normally, when we post a highlights or short film, we share our thoughts about the wedding, the couple or some element related to filming a wedding. This time, we aren’t going to do that. We are going to share the feedback that we got from Kris, the Groom, himself. We often hear wonderful feedback from our couples after showing them the finished film. We should be better at sharing those (on facebook at least), I suppose. This one, though stood out from the others a little bit. Here is what Kris had to say after he saw this highlights:

“Bryan, I can’t express my thanks enough! I just got out of work and watched the highlight video before I started driving home… It actually brought a tear to my eye! Just to explain why that’s such a big deal, I didn’t even cry when my mother passed away. Initially, I was strongly against having a video, because I saw it as a useless format of wedding history… key word being was! After watching how much time, effort, and feeling went into these videos, I will never again think of not using a videographer for something special, especially a wedding!! You’ve more than exceeded our expectations! If there is ever anyone who is on the fence about spending the money, give them my contact information and I’ll talk to them myself! I will be recommending you to anyone and everyone I possibly can! I truly do appreciate everything you guys did for us at our wedding. Our photographer screwed up a vast majority of the photos (not sure if Gina had mentioned that to you or not). We were basically relying on the video footage you guys had for us.”   -Kristopher

We were thrilled to give Kris and Gina their final edited films. We know that they will enjoy them throughout their lives, and their feedback keeps us motivated to give our very best to each and every wedding that we are honored to work on.

The other professionals who helped make this wedding a success (we’ll leave the photographer off the list, obviously) are:

Venue & Caterer: Venezia in Boston, MA (Amazing food, and we have never seen dessert displays as amazing as theirs anywhe – re else….EVER!!!)

Hair: Andrea Stevens Hair Design (Andrea Drinkwater)

Makeup: Danielle Scanlon – Hill at B Boutique (I couldn’t find her online)

Florist: The Flowering Vine

DJ: Groove Entertainment (Peter Diozzi); SUPER nice guy – enjoyed working with him!

Cake: Konditor Meister

Limo – Black Tie Limousine

Wedding Bands came from: Gary Sachs Diamond Jewelers

 

 

 

 

 

Meg & Joe

We are always touched by love stories, but especially by those (like this one) where faith in Christ is truly at the center of how it began and is reflected in the wedding day. We share that same kind of faith, and have seen the benefit of it to our own marriage (September will be our 21st Anniversary).

We so believe in the power of film. It goes beyond the aesthetic beauty in the details of the day. Film holds the power to immerse the viewer in a moment (personally experienced, or not). Often, our couples are not completely experiencing their wedding day as it is happening. Being (necessarily) the center of attention, it is too much to take it all in, and there are moments when nerves often drown out some of what is happening around them, or what is being said to them. We know that Meg & Joe will be able to go back to their day at least once a year and hear again the powerful message that was given by their pastor. If they feel off center one year when they sit down to watch – this message has the ability to realign them to their marital  “plumb line”. I am sure that most of our couples don’t even realize how huge that aspect of their film will be for them decades down the road.

Meg and Joe, it was a pleasure making this film for you, and we wish you two many joyful blessings as you travel the rest of your journey in life together!

The other professionals who helped to make Meg & Joe’s wedding day vision a reality were:

  • DJ: Nuimage (Rick Bettencourt) Really enjoyed working with this specific DJ from Nuimage! Request him personally if you are looking for a DJ; he was great!
  • Cake: Joe’s MOM!!!! Can you believe that? We were SO IMPRESSED!!!
