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!

 

Manny & Ashley's Cape Cod Wedding

The Abernathy and Toscano crew packed the Sea Crest Beach Resort in Falmouth this past September and we were there to capture it all. The ceremony was held nearby in Mashpee at Christ the King where the couple tied the knot in front of a large gathering of family and friends. After, everyone zipped back to the Sea Crest to enjoy a cocktail hour starring an epic cape cod sunset over the water. 

Inside the reception kicked off with some awesome wedding introductions from Manny and Ashley's parents, followed by the newlyweds enjoying their first dance together as husband and wife. The toasts were a roller coaster of emotions, we were either choked up or near tears laughing at the inspiring tale of "The Manolito and His Journey to America", coming soon to Broadway...we think. 

We had a blast spending time with these two and we hope you enjoy the highlights. Congrats to Manny and Ashley! 

Michael & Janet's Seaport Wedding

It was an unusually cool and rainy day at the Seaport Hotel this past June. However, inside the warmth of family and friends could be felt as Michael and Janet tied the knot. The traditional Jewish ceremony was performed by Michael's close friend Moshe, an esteemed Rabbi and coincidentally a master of comedic timing. It was easily the funniest ceremony we've ever been to!

After, the Men in Black kicked off the reception with a bang, followed by a couple of awesome musical performances by friends of the newlyweds, tons of dancing, but most of all there was cowbell. Lots and lots of cowbell. We're excited to share the highlights. Congrats to Michael and Janet!  

Into The Woods

The Loughnane's, Vitali's and friends huffed it into the woods this June to the Essex Retreat and Conference Center in Essex, MA. The natural landscape surrounding the campground was beautiful and full of wildlife, unique metal art sculptures and a natural brook that spilled into a pond covered in lily pads. It was straight out of a disney movie. We were half expecting a character to pop out from behind a tree. 

Family and friends gathered around the pond as Pat and Danielle stood on the peninsula to say their I do's, and they did...so did Guinness. After the couple was introduced, Jack and Jessica toasted the newlyweds, then they dropped the mic. From then on it was nothing but cake mushing, s'more cooking and soul training. 

This was a fun one for sure, we hope you enjoy the highlight! Congrats to Pat and Danielle! 

Krista & Justin's Homecoming

It all began at Merrimack back in 2006 when these two collegiate athletes met one night as freshmen. Nine years later, Krista and Justin came back to their meeting place to tie the knot. After some wise words from Father Jim, the couple and their wild guests shipped it to the Tewksbury CC and turned up the volume. 

The bridal party flashed some serious creativity during introductions. There were selfie sticks, a walk off for the ages and a high profile celebrity appearance, who's identity we are not at liberty to disclose. After came some hilarious and also emotional toasts from friends and family. Then, the band, Night Rhythm came with the kick drum and kept the dance floor packed all night. We had a great time at this wedding and we're excited to share their story. Congratulations to Krista and Justin! 

Katy & Andy Make Fireworks

As it turns out, July 4th weekend isn't the only time to light some fireworks. The flames of LoOove were burning in late May between Katy and Andy at the Overbrook House in Bourne, Ma. It was a gorgeous day for wedding celebrations and the new pair made the most of it enjoying the outdoors all day long. 

The reception kicked off with a warm welcome from the father of the bride and was followed up with a touching vocal performance by Katy's mother. Following that were a lot of happy tears produced during a toast by Andy's brother. After, the matron of honor brought the comic relief, and some tears of her own, of course. 

Then, blast off! The reception moved to one of the many cottages on this sprawling venue where Katy and Andy lit up the dance floor, literally. Nice kicks, Andy. We were very fortunate to be a part of this awesome wedding with some really genuine folks that made us feel welcome. Congrats to the newlyweds, may your light continue to shine through for years to come!


Rick & Steff's Wedding Rhyme

With a crisp breeze of love in the air, Rick and Steffanie tied the knot at the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield Massachusetts this past May. Their family and friends were a lively bunch and we captured a ton of great moments, too many to fit in this highlight. Melissa, the Matron of Honor delivered a really cool toast in the form of a 'Dr. Suess'- like poem. It was carefully crafted, just like this video! Thanks Melissa, we dug it! 

We hope you enjoy and don't forget to check out the slide show below and Rick and Steff's Instagram preview trailer. Just follow the hashtag! #rickandsteff

 


Runaway Wedding

We are very excited to say that City Point Films has gone international! This highlight comes to you from Jamaica at the Jewel Runaway Bay Resort. Harry and Lauren's wedding was a relaxing, week long celebration on a beautiful part of the island. It was an impressive gathering of family and friends for an island wedding and to have such a big crowd there really made the difference all week. 

Jewel was a sprawling resort that had it all. From the hyper competitive beach volleyball games to the almost unnecessarily large water park to Club Bling...yes that's right, CLUB BLING. There was never a dull moment. Especially in BLING, the Hatz/Bellegarde crew shut it down. 

A very special thanks to Harry's sister, Britney and Echo Studios for volunteering to produce this cover song for their wedding video. We hope you enjoy it!
