Boston Wedding Film // MJ + Mike’s Same Day Edit Film // Sheraton Norwood Four Points

We had the pleasure of being introduced to MJ + Mike through their DJ, Luke of Luke Renchan Entertainment.  This couple was fun and laid back from the start and they wanted an amazing reception and so they did!

But before we get here, let’s talk about the proposal and how that happened.  For those of you who don’t know Mike aka DJ “Biggie” is a Rhode Island native and good friends with Pauly D.  When the time came to propose to MJ, Mike was on the MTV reality show, The Pauly D Project.  At the time he was Pauly D’s road manager.  Here is a link to the episode:

MTV’s Pauly D Project

Now Mike is a class act and as great of DJ that he is and dedicated to his craft, his heart is truly with family and his close friends.  On the wedding day we saw that, always making sure everyone felt like a celebrity and was have a great time.

The day started out with MJ getting her makeup done and prep in Norwood at her parent’s home.  MJ’s mom and dad are such warm and friendly people, all day you could see their love for the couple and of “famiglia”, family!

The ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Catherine of Siena in Norwood and the reception follow at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood, MA.

Luke Renchan Entertainment provided uplighting, some accent draping behind the bride and groom, a customized monogram on the dance floor and motion texture lighting that was used to accent the room.

All of the guests were treated like celebrities at this reception and what an amazing reception it was!  Great entertainment by Luke and MJ and Mike decided to add a band, Sweet Tooth and the Sugar Babies to add variety throughout the night.  They defiantly know how to throw a party!

We wanted to give something back to MJ and Mike “DJ Biggie” for being such an amazing couple to work with and decided to produce a Same Day Edit Film for them and surprise them with presenting to them at the reception.  In MJ’s own words: “I just cannot get over this weekend! I love you guys so much. you really made our day so special! xoxox”

MJ and Mike, the feelings are mutual and we could not have asked for a more fun wedding to shoot!

Following their last dance the night continued with a laid back after party, what a night!

We had such a great time shooting this wedding! Carmen’s joy and love for the life and her family is so evident. Eric’s laid back personality blends so well with Carmen’s outgoing, fun and joyous energy. You will see it come through in their wedding film!
It was also impressive to see the amazing procession of cars and horse & carriage pulling into Indian Pond Country Club with Carmen in the lead with her flower girl. Once the reception began then the amazing dancing and fun international blend of music brought the night to an amazing peak, all lead by the DJ skills of Luke Renchan.

Father of the Groom gives us praise!

We regularly receive amazing praise from our couples, but it’s even more exciting to receive a review from a Father of the Groom from an amazing wedding film that we shot at the exclusive Newport Country Club in Newport, RI.  Yes you saw that correctly, the Father of the Groom sent us a great review!

We were already honored to have been asked to shoot Stacie and Matt’s wedding by Matt’s mom Judy, she is the owner of Papers a well respected invitation store in Newport, RI.  So to have received such an amazing review by Matt’s Dad, who you will see from the review has years in the movie and theatre industry, was such an honor.

Thank you again to Stacie and Matt’s family for having us produce your film, it was such an honor and the day brought us such amazing light.  BTW, we have been using Stacie’s image as our ad for the last year or so, the light was so gorgeous the day of there wedding.

The day would not have been possible without the professional co-ordination from the following wedding professionals:

Here is the review that Morris wrote:

As father of the groom and a 40 year veteran of the movie theatre industry, I can say with authority that the video was outstanding. Mike worked seamlessly with the wedding party to capture all of the day’s special moments, doing so in a fun and completely unobtrusive manner. Prior to the wedding, we communicated to Mike what we hoped for in this video. He delivered 110%! He filmed the special moments without our really feeling his presence, which made these moments more organic & less forced. It’s a keepsake we’ll have in our family forever! – Morris

Boston Winter Wedding // Four Seasons Boston, MA

Katherine + Michael’s Boston Winter Wedding was nothing short of magical!  Katherine had always wanted snow on her wedding day and as you will see in the highlights film, she got her wish.  The wedding nuptials took place at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston and the Reception was held at the Four Season Hotel.

The Cocktail hour included an amazing raw bar, a wintered themed signature drink and live entertainment for all the guests to enjoy.  The floral decor and gorgeous tree that greeted the guests as they made their way to the reception, wowed everyone.

The dinner and dancing that followed was nothing but top notch and the staff at the Four Season Boston (www.FourSeasons.com/Boston) provided amazing service all night!
