Marissa + Tim’s Harrington Farm Wedding

When we met Marissa and her parents for the first time, there was so much warmth & laughter;  we felt like we already knew them. We parted knowing their wedding day would be filled with lots of that same joy. Tim and Marissa’s wedding was definitely a bright spot on our calendar for several reasons. It gave us the opportunity to work with one of our favorite photographers, Katie Hall Photography at the gorgeous Harrington Farm. Harrington Farm is an idyllic backdrop for a wedding story, and we were able to take advantage of several of the locales for  creative shots that they have right on the property. Their joy was contagious throughout the day up to the “Hitch” inspired dance at the end of the night. We are thrilled they get to revisit that joy throughout their life together.

Joshua + Roberta Tower Hill Botanic Garden Wedding

This was our first time filming at the gourgeous Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston. It was a perfect location for Joshua and Roberta’s wedding day. These globe trotting lovebirds are surrounded by such love and support from all their family and friends. It was such a treat to be a witness to how grateful these two were to see this special day arrive. We are thrilled to be sharing their short film. It was great to be able to work with Michelle Kamerman from Ever True Studios. She put us on Roberta’s radar and we are very thankful. Check out her work. Enjoy!

Jess + Jon

Willowdale Estate was the background to this lovely wedding day; this place is really enchanting and the staff is first rate. If you’ve been stalking our work (and we know some of you do), you have seen it in several of the highlights clips here on our blog. We love working there, and apparently they love having us there because they keep recommending us. Hiring us was Jess’ Mom’s idea. I’m not sure how much of a priority having a video was to Jess & Jon themselves (before the wedding). I have a feeling, though, that being on the other side of their wedding day, they are glad that we were there. Their day was really “them”. Everyone around them was elated, proud  & content in this step they were taking. Thanks for having us be part of your day, Jess and Jon. Many blessings to you both!

Fred + Tracey – By the Sea

This was a day spent “By the Sea” in New Hampshire, though in truth – we never see the sea itself. Fred & Tracey chose the same little seasonal chapel (St. Andrews by the Sea) built on Rye Beach in 1864 that Tracey’s parents had been married in; how cool is that!? They even had the same organist! It is such a charming little Episcopal church. After their lovely wedding ceremony, they were back at Wentworth by the sea (not at all a little place, built only 10 years after the chapel) where they had started their day. This elegant hotel offers a real princess experience to brides, and Tracey fell into that role easily and naturally. A quote I found in their ceremony program said this, “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so i never have to live without you.” I love that. Tracey and Fred found each other early in life, and I have no doubt will see each other through their journeys. Congratulations to them and their happy families!

Ron + Alison

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

I love this quote. I had not heard this before Alison’s mother shared it with us in her toast to the two of them. It is so fitting a quote for these two who  definitely live by the latter part of that sentiment. We sat down to some nachos and beer with Ron and Alison to talk about their big day.  It was a nice opportunity for us to get to know them and what their personalities and tastes are. It’s the wedding day itself, though, that says the most about who the two people getting married are . Family, and close friends are a big part of who we all are. Their words on a wedding day say a lot about our character and values.  But watching how the couple interacts with each other goes a long way in telling what they are like individually. We really get to know our couples from putting together their wedding day story, and we so enjoyed the whole experience start to finish with Ron and Alison. This is a man who will never regret waiting for the right woman to come into his life. We couldn’t be happier for the two of them!

A big thank you to Sarah and all of the awesome staff at French’s Point for making this day all that it was. They took the elements that Ron and Alison dreamed up and created, and made them a reality. They even made sure we stayed hydrated; gotta love that!
