A Perfect Match

Everyone has heard the saying that opposites attract, but as our toasters mentioned in the case of Brian and Lindsey they share many similar qualities that make them a perfect pair and they're families both agree, which brings us to St. Joe's Catholic Church in Belmont for the wedding ceremony!

The soon to be newlyweds had a close friend of the family, Father Rene fly in from Pennsylvania to preside. Surrounded by a big gathering of family and friends, Brian and Lindsey said their I do's. 

Next, the bridal party ventured to a nearby state park to take some photos overlooking the Boston skyline, what a view! Then it was onto the Westin for the reception and our bridal party kicked it off with a bang. The newlyweds had their first dance and had their guests join in as well, we dig that. Then it was time for the toasts and between Lindsey's father Dr. Suffredini, the maid of honor, Karen or Brian's brother and best man John, its hard to say who summed up Brian and Lindsey best. They were all slam dunks and we thank them very much for their contributions to this video! 

We hope you enjoy the story of Lindsey and Brian and some unforgettable moments from their wedding day. Congrats to the new Mr & Mrs Sullivan! 

New Beginnings

As many families with multiple children will tell you, the concept of sibling rivalry is as real as it gets! For parents it can pepper in a little stress day to day as brothers and sisters fight over belongings, who controls the car radio or sometimes you get a swift kick in the head for just being in your sisters airspace...but I'm not bitter. So was the case between Joe and his best man and brother, Chris. For Mary and her sisters, things seemed a bit more nurturing, but that doesn't rule out swift kicks, just ask our bride. It's rumored she applied this tactic, but in a more defensive capacity. 

So why all this talk about siblings? Well, because during the toasts, Chris and Meghan both pointed out the ways in which siblings, sooner or later go from worthy adversaries to trusted confidants and life long friends..and we'd be lying if we didn't get a little choked up about it, pre and post editing.

Speaking of edits, here's a collection of great moments from the wedding and Mary and Joe and one thing is for sure while we were browsing through all the footage, this is a tight group of people who really care about each other. Get ready for some feel good moments, we hope you enjoy and congrats to the new Mr & Mrs Ponte and their new beginning! 

She's The Judge

Ladies and Gents believe us when we say nothing...NOTHING can prepare you for Danielle, Steve and their family and friends. They are a forceful tidal wave of fun that sweeps you up, rolls you around and spits you out on the shoreline somewhere, barely breathing... okay that's a little dramatic but you get the point! From the moment we met up with them you could really feel the energy and excitement family and friends had for each other and were thrilled to witness Danielle and Steve tie the knot, and that they did!

After the Ceremony the newlyweds traveled to the Ipswich Country Club to celebrate and yes, they knew how. From the incredible bridal party entrances to last dance of the night the Danielle, Steve and the rest of the gang enjoyed non - stop laughs, a lot of hugs and seriously showcased the moves on the dance floor. This crew really made us feel welcome and we feel very fortunate to have been a part of their wedding day. Enjoy the highlights and congrats to Danielle and Steve!!   

The A-Team Matrimony

The Lord and Timmons families and friends gathered in Plymouth this past fall for the wedding celebration of Allison and Austin at Waverly Oaks Country Club.  It was a perfect day for an outdoor ceremony and all seats were taken to hear the story of how Allison and Austin had gotten to know each other and over time formed an inseparable bond, now know as...yes, the A-Team! It really is a great story. Soon after, Allison and Austin said their I do's and were officially declared husband and wife. 

After a very lively photo session, the groomsmen showed off their putting skills while the newlyweds took in the sunset. Then it was time for the reception which kicked off with a some awesome bridal party entrances and an intimate first dance. Then came toasts from the best man and maid of honor, both of which were outstanding. 

We took a quick siesta between the formal activities and when we came back in the room, something had happened...These docile, classy, well mannered folks had turned into rowdy, towel waving, party animals! It must have been the wine on the table or maybe that's just what happens when the A-Team lets loose! Either way, we were all about it!

We have lots of great moments to show you from Allison and Austins wedding day. We hope you enjoy the highlights. Congrats to the newlyweds!   

Mina & Marie's Boston Harbor Wedding

I think anyone can agree that brain surgery is some very serious business. You don't want just anyone poking around in your noggin, luckily we've just run into two of them that are about to tie the knot and lets just say we really dig their bedside manner. 

After a really funny gift exchange between our couple, the Safain and Roguski families gathered at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross to witness Mina and Marie say their I do's...and they did. Next the newlyweds and their bridal party headed over to the common for some photos and ran into a lot of wildlife. Back at the Boston Harbor Hotel, their guests enjoyed cocktail hour with a sweet view of the harbor and luckily our couple was able to join them for a few.

The reception kicked off with a bang thanks to Mina and Marie who floored us with some killer dance moves. The toasts from family and friends were all so good we used a little bit from everyone for this highlight. Afterward, Mina and Marie executed a minor cake procedure that was looked like it was getting a little hairy, but rest assured the surgical team had it under control and no cakes were harmed, well sort of. The rest of the night was a non-stop dance party, it was wild! 

So remember, if you're in the market for a couple surgeons that have a direct line to your funny bone and our nothing short of spectacular people, look up Mina and Marie. We had a such a great time capturing their wedding day and we hope you enjoy the highlights! 

Cheer's to the Martini's

On a beautiful weekend in July, we cruised down the cape to catch up with the Bobadilla and Martini families celebrating the wedding of Julissa and Mike. The couple rented out a sweet pad of the weekend and we started off there to grab some shots of them getting ready. 

Soon after the trolley pulled up and Mike and the guys headed to the church down in Chatham to make it official. As aways, downtown Chatham was bustling with vacationers and they whipped out their smartphones to snap a few pics of the bride as she walked in the church. 

As you’ll see, the ceremony had a couple minor flaws and Mike was quick with the jokes and had the whole crowd laughing, including us. One ring fumble, then recovery later Julissa and Mike the knot! 

Afterwards it was off the the Wychmere Beach Club for the reception and the bridal party did not disappoint as they entered the ballroom, what moves! After an acrobatic first dance, the newlyweds sat to listen to some heartfelt words from the father of the bride and best man, not to be outdone by a hilarious slideshow  presented by the maid’s of honor.

Then the real fun began. We though the bridal party could dance so we should have known their friends and family were as skilled as they were! Think we learned a couple new ones… 

We had such a great time capturing Mike and Julissa’s wedding day. We hope you enjoy the highlights! 

The Adventures Of Jack + Lauren

On a temperate day on the Cohasset coastline the Beuke and Carroll families gathered at St. Anthony’s for the wedding celebration of Jack and Lauren. The church was packed as Jack’s old buddy from college, Father Chris led the liturgy and added some wise words and well wishes for the bride and groom. Jack and Lauren spoke their vows and then they sped off in a classic Mercedes into the sunset! Well, sort of. 

We caught up with the newlyweds later at the Atlantica in Cohasset for the reception. Lauren’s father shared some stories of a few excursions that the family had with Jack and Lauren. Apparently Lauren’s a little tough to keep up with on the slopes! Afterwards, Lauren’s sisters, her friend Meg and Jack’s brother got up to share some more entertaining stories about the newlyweds as well. 

After the formalities, it was pedal to the metal for the newlyweds and they’re wild guests as they kept the dancing going allll night long! We had a great time hanging out with this awesome group of people and we were fortunate to work with the planners at Simeral & Co. again who really helped make the day a huge success. We hope you enjoy the preview and congrats to Jack and Lauren!

To Have and to Holak

We're back at the Lakeview Pavilion and its sporting a fresh new look! Seriously, we think the paint was still drying. It was a perfect day by the lake for Chris and Nicole, but first the pair headed to St. Mary's where friends and family packed the church to witness the newlyweds officially tie the knot.

Fast forward to cocktail hour at the Pavilion where the guests lounged by the lake to enjoy the view. Afterwards, the reception kick off with some show stopping entrances from the bridal party! They really showcased the moves. Of course, there were some usual suspects among them, so not too surprising, but impressive for sure.  

Then it was time for the main event as the newlyweds shared an intimate first dance followed by a really touching mother daughter dance with Nicole, her mother and her two sisters. From there, well..it was TURNT! 

We had a blast capturing some great moments with Chris, Nicole and some very familiar faces that we were happy to see again. We hope you enjoy the highlights and congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Holak! 

 

Fun, Love & The Bradley's

 

It was clear blue day for Elise & Colin’s wedding celebration up in Haverhill this past June and FUN was in the air.

The Bradley and Powers families packed the Sacred Heart Parish for the ceremony and although a wedding ceremony generally speaking is very serious business, this one had more than its fair share of laughs. If you know Colin and Elise, then you know why.

The reception was hosted by DJ Wild Bill and kicked off with some great entrances from the bridal party. Then, the bride and groom brought the noise! 

Colin’s brother and Elise’s sister kept the laughs going with some great toasts and from then on it was a non-stop party. Safe to say this was a fun one. We’re excited to share the highlights! Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Bradley!

Better Together

We were all the way up at the BC Club with the Bertoli and Athansiou families for the wedding celebration of Marissa and Paul this past June. It’s hard to believe it was that long ago, it seems like yesterday we were rocking out with the K2 band, Paul’s wild college buddies from Ohio and witnessing what seemed to be a well choreographed dance between Marissa’s mom and a cousin? Nephew? A wedding crasher? Who knows…and who cares, it was outstanding!   

This Greek and Italian union had everything you could ask for at a wedding. A great ceremony at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, some touching toasts from Marissa’s father and sister and a hilarious speech from Paul’s brother, or maybe it was a standup routine, either way he was made for the stage. It really doesn't come as a surprise that the wedding was a huge success. If you ever have the pleasure of meeting these two love birds, you'll know why. 

We had such a great time capturing some unforgettable moments. We hope you enjoy the story of this awesome couple and the love they share. Congrats to Marissa and Paul! 

Eternal Love

To steal a couple lines from a great toast we’ve heard in the past…Sometimes two people meet and you discover an instant connection. As the old saying goes, when you know, you know. It’s the perfect way to describe the love that Pat and Amanda found eleven years ago and since then, they’ve never looked back. 

In fact, it was on June 4, 2016, their 11 year anniversary that the pair tied the knot. It was clear that Pat and Amanda’s love for each other was the real deal and as we discovered, so was their love for their family and their crazy, crazy....craaazy friends. This crew was thick as thieves and I think its safe to say this wasn’t their first time all out partying together. 

We were thrilled to be there to capture Pat and Amanda's victory lap. Here are some of the highlights and don’t forget to catch the preview below if you missed it. Congrats to Pat and Amanda!

 

 

 

Love From Above

As wedding cinematographers, we come a cross so many great couples who met and began their relationship in very different ways. Somewhere between the first date and the engagement, their relationship is tested and in that they discover not only that the love they share is true, but was made stronger as they stood together in a most challenging time. 

As you’ll see, Alicia and Mike’s journey together has withstood a great loss, and how they handled that says a lot about who they are as people and how powerful love can be. 

We were honored to be a part of this special day. This one’s for Suzanne and the new Mr & Mrs Pritchard!

Winter Love

Nothing says winter like a New England blizzard. Big flakes and blustery winds descended on Cohasset at the Red Lion Inn this past January for Jenna and Joe’s wedding celebration, creating a setting you’d only find on a magazine cover. This storm had the entire northeast taking cover, but nothing could have stood in the way of these two.

Jenna and Joe braved the outdoors for possibly our favorite first look ever while the Amara’s, Quilty’s and friends cozied up in the barn for a ceremony that went off without a hitch. After, the party kicked off with cocktails in the Saloon only to be outdone by some wild entrances back in the barn for the reception, hosted by Sweet Tooth and the Sugar Babies. 

The band set the tone and this crowd with Jenna and Joe as lead, answered the call. We had a blast capturing some unforgettable moments and we hope you enjoy the highlights. If you missed it, don’t forget to check out the wedding preview below!  

Brian & Patrice's NYE Wedding

There are lots of ways to celebrate the new year, some more memorable than others. You can head into town with your respecitve wolfpack and raise hell…or order in, kick your feet up and watch the ball drop…or you could do it like Patrice and Brian. Invite all of your family and friends to the historic Omni Parker House in Boston for a wedding celebration and really class it up. 

If you missed it, you missed out! The reception was jam packed with memorable moments, like some great toasts to the bride and groom, a special dance shared by Patrice and Brian’s grandmothers and a surprisingly well performed rendition of a Backstreet Boys song by Brian the Xaverian crew…safe to say it wasn’t their first time doing it. 

Here are some highlights to enjoy! Congratulations to Patrice and Brian and Happy 2016! 

New To The Neighborhood

The Graham's, Kiselius' and friends were kicking it in Quincy this past December for the wedding celebration of Katie and Steve. It was a yuletide atmosphere around town, especially at the Neighborhood Club, where the reception was held. The same spot that Katie's parents were married, not SO long ago....but a little ways back.

Now, Katie & Steve carry on tradition and begin their own family rooted in friendship, laughter and love. We had a great time capturing some special moments for these two, we hope you enjoy the highlights! Introducing your new neighbors, the Grahams!  

One Night In The City

The DiRusso’s, Rossi’s and friends headed downtown to the Westin in Copley Square this past December to celebrate the wedding of Stephanie and Jon. It was a clear calm night in Boston creating a wonderful setting of both candle and city lights for the couple to exchange their vows.

Aftwerward, the reception started off with a bang as the wedding party was introduced followed by the newlyweds taking center stage for their first dance. Now, it was reported that these two families were masters in the craft of party-going and we’re happy to say that they did not disappoint, the dance floor was packed all night with wild friends and family.

So without further ado, here's the preview! We hope you enjoy and congrats to Stephanie and Jon!

 

The Universal Language

This past November we were with Chris and Jeff at the Commanders Mansion in Watertown for their wedding celebration. The place was packed with family and friends from all over the United States as well as Ireland annnnd the Azores!

It was truly a multicultural affair. Despite their different places of origin, all in attendance were there to share their love and support for Chris and Jeff, giving testament to the old saying that love is the universal language. 

This was a wild and crazy crew and we had such good time capturing Chris and Jeff's wedding day. Here are just some of the good parts. We hope you enjoy and congratulations to the new Mister and Mister!

 





Meet The Palmers

We’re back in Falmouth! This time at the historic Highfield Hall for the wedding celebration of Campbell and Emma. It was a perfect fall day for an outdoor ceremony and to steal a line from Mr. Hurley, people came from all over to celebrate with the newlyweds including international venues and even strange places like San Fransisco and Cleveland! They all gathered in the garden to witness the couple say say their I do’s, and they did. Of course, Jack, Thomas and Elouise participated as well during the sand ceremony…there was a lot of sand, mission accomplished! 

After, the reception kicked off with some toasts which ranged from laugh out loud funny to happy tears. It was an emotional roller coaster and there were way too many punchlines to squeeze into this highlight, well done everyone! As the sun set, the wedding party and their guests moved indoors to cut the cake and open up the dance floor and did they ever. Meanwhile, deep in a dark corner of the mansion, Campbell’s college buddies, family and friends got together to wish Campbell a happy 40th birthday, more hilarity ensued. Don’t forget to check out that video below, it won’t dissapoint! 

A very big congrats to Campbell, Emma, Jack, Thomas and Elouise! Get ready to meet the Palmers!





Chris & Shannon's Autumn Wedding

This past October we were in Sharon, Massachusetts at the Saphire Estate to capture the wedding celebration of Chris and Shannon. This New England fall day called for some rain, but for an Army Veteran like Chris and his soon to be wife know, a little rain never hurt anyone. Just before the couple was about to say their I do’s, the sky really opened up! They say that’s good luck, either way, Chris and Shannon rolled with the punches it and everyone got a good laugh out of it.

After ceremony 2.0 indoors, the bridal party got the party started with some great entrances followed by some thoughtful toasts by the Best Man and Maid Of Honor. Afterwards, the newlweds cut a cake that looked so good, it’s hard to believe it was edible. Then the dancefloor opened up and the couple and their guests got after it all night.

We had such a good time hanging with this crew and it was a pleasure to capture some special moments for this awesome couple. Special thanks to all the men and women of our military who answer the call so we can enjoy nights like this one. 

Congrats to the Chris and Shannon, we hope you enjoy the highlights!
