Mandy + Chris | highlights

Mandy and Chris were married on a beautiful September day at The Colonial Hotel in Gardner, MA. You can check out their same day edit in the archives. Mandy loved her sister Michelle's wedding film which we shot almost exactly a year prior. Mandy was Michelle's maid of honor and Chris was Ian's best man, so it was quite fitting that the roles were reversed this time around.

I try to bring something fresh to each piece - a same day edit is essentially a highlights film in itself that you can share with your guests during your reception. It typically focuses more on the early preparations so the groom can see his bride getting ready and vice-versa... and it typically ends with the ceremony or perhaps first dance. I wanted to tell more of the story with this piece rather then just simply re-creating their SDE with some extra shots. So the end result is a piece that has more of a cinematic feel to it and there are many more layers of the story. I wanted it to feel upbeat and happy while capturing their personalities and the experience of an amazing group of friends and family coming together for such an incredible day and how much fun it was. This film not only stands apart from their SDE but also from their feature film, yet I think they all complement each other nicely. Enjoy!
