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!!!)

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!!!

 

 

 

Joe + Emily


Joe and Emily chose to get our short feature, which is about twice as long as a highlights. It gives you more time to experience the best parts of their wedding day. We love it when couples really take the time to find unique ways to breathe their tastes, personalities and talents into their day; because as we know – every couple is wonderfully unique. Cutting the cake with a fireman’s axe, the photo garland and those cardboard cut-outs all added elements of who they are together and separately. All of these little elements along with great toasts that tell more about the two of them help the two families get to know each of them better.  It all comes together to help us tell their story. We feel honored when families allow us into their world on such a special day to do just that.

The other professionals who brought this day together:

Photographer: Steve Gilbert

Caterer/Reception location: The Warren Center

Florist: Debra’s Flowers

Band: Men in Black

Cake: Gerardo’s Italian Bakery

Limo: AA Limosine Service

Jewelery: Zales

Ceremony location: St. John the Evangelist Church

 

 

 

 

Tyler + Christina

Two incredibly sweet people, Christina and Tyler, finally made it to their wedding day. Surrounded by their supportive family and friends everything that they planned so long for finally fell into place. It was another “reunion wedding” for us as we had filmed her sister’s wedding a couple of years before. I remember being at her sister’s wedding on New Years Eve, seeing them dancing together…looking forward to their own day. Sweet memories! Tyler wrote a song for Christina and before she put on her dress, it was the gift that she opened. Wow! A man who is good at expressing his heart is a precious thing, indeed! We don’t need to tell Christina to hold onto him, we’re confident she will. We had such a great time with them that day, and telling their story. Now, we’ll just keep an eye on facebook for baby announcements. Don’t mean to rush you guys – we just LOVE babies…plus how cute would those babies be?! Keep us posted!
