We are absolutely thrilled to share this wedding with you. We have put a lot of effort in it and find this to be one of our best work to this day, and that’s why we decided to share with you the entire film instead of just a highlight as we usually do. Filming at the carnival was something we wanted to do for a while now, and we are so glad Lindsay and Joe wanted to do it too. I mean, how cool is it? We always want to take the extra step, or two, for our clients. We also came to their rehearsal at the legendary Biltmore Hotel, Providence. It was so worth the travel for those great toasts. They gave this film such dimension. Before I left that night, I took a shot of the hotel from the street and I remembered the spot for the morning, because I knew I will be there the next day for the preparation. I knew that I wanted to fade from night to day, and have everything stay the same except for the sky. The shot came out exactly as I envisioned it. Look for it in the film. We are so proud how the story is connected in every shot. Like when the song goes “…when all the world is spinning around…” it fades into a shot of merry go round with Lindsay and Joe in front of it, or there is a shot of Joe putting on cufflink, and it transitions to Lindsy’s dad cufflink. And many many more of these kind of connections. Keep looking for them, they make the film so much more personal.
The wedding was at the (Meet the Joe Black) Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI. The chapel is attached to the property and was quite unusual with the pews facing each other. And I have to mention how awesome it was to work with Steve DePino, the photographer. We love how he really wants to work with our continuous lights instead of flash. Hope we work together soon. His pictures are just like oil paintings.
