Northport Maine Wedding // Alicia & Kirby’s Wedding Highlight // Coastal New England Wedding Film

Alicia & Kirby wanted that quintessential New England coastal wedding. They drove up the Maine coast in search of the perfect wedding venue and stumbled upon Point Lookout Resort & Conference Center. Don’t be thrown off by the name.. it was amazing! (think cozy cabins in the pines & gorgeous ocean views from a mountain top). Alicia & Kirby had found a picture perfect venue. Camden Maine and the surrounding area is near & dear to Alicia & Kirby, so finding that place for their special day was so important. The weather cooperated too, we should say.. it easily could have been very cold but everyone was comfortably enjoying the unseasonably warm temperature. We were honored to be invited up to spend a weekend with this fun couple & their wonderful friends and family.

Puerto Rico Destination Wedding // Ellie & Blay’s Highlights Film // Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa
Event Filmmakers: Mike & Neal
Editor: Neal

After our long and brutally cold New England winter, we we’re so excited to escape for a destination wedding in Puerto Rico. Elizabeth & Blay had their ceremony and reception at beautiful Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa which is located on Puerto Rico’s lush southern coast. We’ll let the footage speak for itself, but the scenery was breathtaking. What was even more beautiful than the scenery were the people involved in Ellie & Blay’s wedding. There was so much joy shared between the two families celebrating the couple. They had an intimate beach wedding ceremony with their closest friends and family and it was nothing short of perfect. The entire weekend was relaxed and intimate for their guests, but we made sure to get out and explore with Ellie & Blay. First we explored Gilligan’s Island with Blay, and then drove across the island to visit El Yunque National Forest with the couple. We hiked out to La Mina Falls and were able to shoot some footage of Ellie & Blay at the waterfall. It was unforgettable and so much fun! We hope you love this short film of their awesome weekend.

Catherine Jo and Nicholas enjoyed a beautiful seaside wedding taking place in Bristol and Newport, RI. Their day started at the Hyatt where they both got ready for their big day. Cathy’s dress was breathtaking, the photographer and Crystal decided it was too pretty to get a nice shot of it indoors. They made sure Nick was indoors so that he couldn’t see them and they hung it outdoors on the Hyatt balcony.
An elegant Rolls Royce came to bring Cathy to St. Mary’s church in Bristol. They had an intimate catholic wedding ceremony with their closest family and friends there supporting them. As they exited the church, their guests were cheering them on by waving streamers in the air.
After a champagne toast, the happy couple made their way to Belle Mer on Goat Island in Newport, RI for their wedding reception. They posed for some breathtaking shots on the sea wall of Belle Mer with the Newport Bridge in the background. Guests made their way to cocktail hour while Cathy and Nick shared a romantic moment in the room before the guests could see it. The decor was classy and sophisticated. The reception started and the couple shared their first dance together, guests were invited to join. The night continued with a beautiful sunset, delicious dinner, fun dancing, and a refreshing coffee and espresso booth.
We are so honored that we were able to share in this special occasion with Cathy and Nick!

Destination Wedding Video in The Great Smoky Mountains // Grishma & Hiren / Sunset Creative Session


Grishma & Hiren // Great Smoky Mountains Sunset Session // Destination Wedding Films & Videos from Artistic Wedding Films on Vimeo.
Destination weddings are so much fun to shoot and this one was no different.  Having the chance to travel to Tennessee and shoot Grishma and Hiren’s Engagement Ceremony and Reception was a blast!  As you can imagine, getting amazing shots doesn’t come without preparation or planning. Neal and I spent 4.5 hours scouting to find this amazing spot in the Smoky Mountains so that we could take our couple to an amazing destination for the sunset. Having no internet service in the Smoky Mountains made it even a bit more difficult to get sun patterns and sunset times, we had to rely on our skills and experience to pull this session all together. I hope you all agree.

We had a blast and even had a chance to take a “Dronie” that’s a selfie from the UAV or “drone”.

Block Island Destination Wedding // Michael & Michele

The Katherine-May Homestead house in Block Island, RI has been a part of Michael’s family for 85 years. Not only did he spend all of his summers there as a child, but his parents, his Aunt & Uncle, and his brother were all married there. He and Michele decided they would carry on the tradition and celebrate their wedding day on Block Island as well. They shared their vows in front of their family and friends and their dog, Hugo on the cliff. They stood underneath an Arbor that the boys made out of driftwood from the beach, the day before. The celebration continued with an evening of great food and dancing and an incredible sunset.

Destination Wedding // Spruce Peak, Stowe, VT // Cyndi & Justin’s Wedding Trailer

Cinematography: ArtisticWeddingFilms // 877.819.0923

Cyndi & Justin decided they wanted to have a destination wedding at the Spruce Peak Mountain Lodge in Stowe, Vermont because they wanted their family and friends to be able to enjoy their wedding as if it were a vacation. They love the atmosphere of Stowe and thought it would be a beautiful place for the most special day of their lives, and they were right!

Cyndi started her day getting her hair and makeup done at the Spa at Stowe Mountain Lodge, while Justin was enjoying some beers from the Lost Nation brewery with his groomsmen. Cyndi & Justin had a beautiful Armenian ceremony at the Waterbury Congregational Church. We had the privilege of working with Jesse Schloff photography and he brought us to the amazing looking red barn on Stowe Hollow Road for the couple’s formals session.
The night continued with cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres outside at the Spruce Camp Base Lodge. The reception started with a bang! The Love Revival Orchestra marched into the room with the couple and their bridal party and it was non-stop fun from then on. The guests also enjoyed smores by the fire pit and an awesome gelato station. They had to have gelato considering they met in high school scooping ice cream together. The whole night was surely one to remember!

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!
