This was our last wedding of the year. It had been raining all day so Rachel, Derick and also I, were little upset the ceremony wasn’t outside with the amazing colors of Connecticut foliage. The Barns in fall is spectacular place. However we did the best we could with the rain and I think it turned out just fantastic. I decided to show off the rain rather than trying to avoid it. And I think the night shots are one of our best ever!

A Texan marrying a New England girl. Sounds like a movie, and surely this could have been one. I know Stephanie’s whole family so well. I did a video for her brother and did her cousin’s wedding about 7 years ago. Marc is a helicopter pilot policeman (how often you get to say that?) and a real gentleman. As Steph’s dad put it, she “married a good ol’ boy”

The location was Saltwater Farm Vineyard, Stonington CT. We really love this place. We did another wedding here, a month prior.

One of our favorite wedding spots – Gilbertsville Farmhouse, upstate NY. It’s so serene up there. Just one with nature (and goats). Lori and Evan were such fun, they were being goofy all day. Laughing the entire time, especially Lori. Lori is also a comedian, as were many of the guests. And I mean not just wise guys, but actual real comedians. There were also many actors, people from showbiz, and singers. I really wanted to capture the fun this wedding had been, and I think it is reflected in the video.

When I was growing up, I had spent many of my weekends working in the family Vineyards. Wine has a special place in my family. Lives revolved around the grape cycles. I am familiar with all the labor to cultivate this fruit that turns into a golden/maroon liquid. As I am writing this, my parents are probably somewhere between isles readying wines for winter. Naturally then, the location of this wedding felt familiar, even though I had never been to Saltwarter Farm Vineyard before.
Jessica and Kevin met at the Coast guard in Hawaii (wish the wedding was there:)) The Ceremony was at the Coast Guard Chapel in New London and the reception you know where already. We had such great time.

Recently I’ve gotten really inspired. We are going to up our game and create more beautiful and exciting videos with a little edge. This process will take time to implement but you can get a hint of it right now in this video. We started with editing and color grading. Just the fact that I got so excited about creating better wedding films makes me so happy. It means we aren’t stagnant and always evolving to be the best we can ever be.

Ashley contacted me quite close to the wedding date, I think it was around a month before. Because we take only a very small amount of weddings each year, we were open on a quite popular September date. I had even more dyer issue the wedding after this one, but I will tell you the story next time.
Ashley is a Tiffany jeweler, so I was obviously curious about all the jewelry. And it didn’t disappoint. Just check out the ring. You better hit the gym to wear that thing. The blue stone is Montana sapphire, chosen for Joel’s home state, Montana. Anyway, you will hear about the story and many other stories in the film. It’s just packed with beautiful and heartfelt speeches.
