Tracy and Andrew’s wedding was packed with absolutely beautiful and tear-jerking toasts and speeches. We also went to the rehearsal, and it was so worth the extra day. It gave us a really hard time picking what would end up in the final film, as we wanted to use every single toast. The above 3 minutes highlight is just a fraction of all the heartwarming words spoken and events that took place, that are in the longer Feature film. However the first toast by Tracy’s dad is our most favorite one. It even made us cry again as we were editing it. And doesn’t he sound just like john Goodman. What a great voice to have. This wedding was Irish/Dutch, mostly Irish though, but her mom’s little Dutch box, Dutch ribbon and those little wooden shoes were so interesting, they made it to the front image of the video. And you know who else is of a Dutch heritage? One of the coolest photographers to work with as well as to hang out with. You might have heard of them Justin and Mary. And here are the pictures from this wedding. The entire event was coordinated by our dear friend Stacie Shea, she is the best.

We love outdoor, rustic, barn weddings. Berkshires might be our most favorite place for them. We’ve got so much footage of rusty metal, worn wood, old doors, that we had really hard time picking which one to use, as we couldn’t use it all. Although I wish we could have. We get sometimes carried away, ohh well. As every films is custom made for each client, we pay attentions to details. Like in this one the color correction had to be very pastel, rusty, simply to have a patina of age. It really works with this films, as is the music. We were so excited when we found it, it fits it so well. Very Phillips Phillips, Mumfrod & Sons. please enjoy this wedding film of Shelly and Chris, a glimpse into Berkshires.

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.

We are so blessed with all of our clients to be so open and emotional. We have so much joy working on their final film, knowing we have a great material to pick from. Megan and Justin film was no exception. We had I believe 5 beautiful speeches at the rehearsal, 2 toasts at the wedding, the groom’s speech that we started this film with, and lets not forget the handwritten vows. The vows, the toast, the speeches are the foundation and cornerstone of our films. That’s what we build on, peoples’ stories and affection they show for one another. The visual eye-candy is just a B-roll. So without further ado enjoy this short film.

A wedding with such beautiful heart-felt toast by Jeannine’s Dad that makes us tear up every time we hear it, even though I have heard it about 20 times while editing. It was no brainier to put it right in the beginning of this film. Actually we knew this will be the center-point, and we will build Jeannine and Greg’s film around this emotional speech. This is just a highlight of their day and there is so much more in the Feature Film we couldn’t squeeze into this one. Greg’s brothers had probably the funniest toast we have ever heard. Roast would be better term for it. And then there was the party. It was Italian wedding, do I have to say more? Jason from CT Party Pros put on one hell of a party. If you don’t have a DJ for your wedding, you need to get in touch with them. Go to their website Thank you also to the photographers Jennifer & Charles Maring from Maring Visuals.
