Allison + John | from a Tahoe blizzard to a destination wedding in Boston

Yesterday I filmed Allison and John's amazing wedding in Boston along with Kate and Mike. They live in San Francisco and friends and family joined them from near and far for an amazing celebration. Allison and John were a really awesome couple to get to know and you can tell as soon as you meet them they are absolutely a perfect fit for each other.

Allison and John were married at the amazing historic Old South Church. Its one of those buildings that when you walk into your jaw just hits the floor. Their reception was just a couple blocks down Boylston Street at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental. They held their rehearsal on Thursday with a rehearsal dinner Friday evening at the Taj rooftop with stunning of the city views all around of the sunset over Boston. Amanda joined me for coverage of their rehearsal dinner and I also covered their rehearsal at the church the day before.

One thing that certainly makes for a great wedding is when you have the opportunity to work with a great planner. Heather Minicucci of Simply Inviting Weddings is one of a kind. She worked so well with Allison and John and her attention to all of the finest details was outstanding. All of her hard work made for a wedding I can say I will certainly never forget.

We were excited to meet and work with Christine + Andy with Bello Photography. They are a husband and wife team from the Cape that are not only incredibly talented but just so much fun to work with. The band Hush sounded incredible and provided the music for the evening. Boston Uplights designed the lighting and decor and took an amazing looking ballroom to a whole new level. Jason from Revelation Productions provided the projection system for us for this same day edit...

  2. Thanks so much Meg, that's really awesome of you to say that! The sunset time lapse was shot during the rehearsal dinner out the window, the others were all done by Kate earlier in the day and of course at the start of the reception. The reaction from Allison + John was phenomenal!

  6. OMG,I've finally been able to wipe the tears from my eyes and tell you as the mother-of-the bride what an experience it has been for me to watch over and over the gift of Allison and John's wedding experience! Jeff you are a master at your craft, I was in awe of how you could put together in such a short time a presentation that knocked the socks off of everyone at the wedding. I truly feel blessed that we choose you as our videographer. How lucky are we?
