Wedding in Brookline & Wellesley

CathedralThis Saturday, I had the pleasure of taping Maureen and Matt’s wedding. They were married at St. Mary’s Church in Brookline with a reception at Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, Massachusetts. It was my first time working with the photographers from AMW Studios. Ariel and Matt were great to work with, and I could see that they were efficient and fun in working with the bridal couple and their family and guests. Brendan Howard of Murray Hill Talent was their DJ, and he kept the party moving along effortlessly. Overall coordination was handled beautifully by Erica Jones of Events by Sharon’s Daughter.

Massachusetts Horticultural Society

Located just outside Wellesley, MA, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society boasts a gorgeous setting for wedding or corporate events.

The weddings I’ve taped there have all been amazing events. There really isn’t a bad angle for shooting outside. And I love the Hunnewell Building, where the receptions are usually held. As a videographer, I appreciate that the room stays pretty light for shooting, so I don’t have to resort to adding gain, which adds grainy look to the video.

I highly recommend checking out their site if you’re planning a wedding in the Boston area. They are also looking for donations to their Annual Fund, if you’d like to show your support.

Have you seen this site? You can enter a zip code or city name from anywhere in the country and get a look at the average wedding cost for that area. Here are some I entered:
Norwalk, CT—$56,740
Springfield, MA—$26,780

Four Seasons Boston

Tonight, I was at the Four Seasons in Boston with my favorite photographers, Glenn and April Livermore! Anne and Marc were the wedding couple, and they were so easy to work with, very sweet.

The Four Seasons was, well, The Four Seasons—luxurious, efficient, and AMAZING food! Anne and Marc did a fabulous planning job, everything looked so beautiful.

Here are some pics:

Boston Harbor Hotel

Some places just really do it right. Boston Harbor Hotel is not only a beautiful location for a wedding, but the service is tops. Their wait staff is fabulous—total efficiency. I was shooting in the Wharf Room last Saturday, and the lighting on the tables was gorgeous.

And the cocktail hour on the balcony just outside, overlooking the harbor, as sunset approached… I can’t wait to go back!
