We were really excited to head back to The Barn at Gibbet Hill for Kate and Dave’s wedding earlier this month. On one of their earlier dates together they saw the Disney/Pixar film ‘Up.’ They both thought it would be a cute movie for kids but as the story went on and they both had tears in their eyes, Dave couldn’t help but thinking about growing old together with Kate and all the wonderful adventures they would share together. How fitting that on their wedding day Kate’s gift was the adventure book from Up that Dave had made for her, filled with blank pages for all the stuff they are going to do together. They are currently on their first adventure as a married couple caravanning across New Zealand for a few weeks – how awesome is that!?!?
Kate had something up her sleeve for Dave as well which would come later in the evening. Dave is a HUGE Boston Bruins fan and she setup the voice of the Bruins Rene Rancourt to surprise Dave during their reception where they joined in on the Star Spangled Banner and Rene sung a few more tunes throughout dinner.
Kate’s step-father Court is a deacon and officiated their ceremony. He gave the most heartfelt sermon I think we have ever heard – a truly incredible moment before these two shared their marriage vows with one another. All together Kate and Dave had such a beautiful wedding and we were so lucky to get to know these two and capture their big day for them.
Kate and Dave also had an all-star team of vendors. Their photographers – Mariah and Trish of Snap! – were fantastic to work with and we could tell immediately by the way they were shooting how talented they are. They just posted a teaser photo on their blog with Kate + Dave standing in front of a wood pile – awesome!! Their DJs were Rick and Marc with nuimage entertainment and they were outstanding! The dance floor was packed all evening and the music sounded fantastic. Their florists B&G Sawin did beautiful work which really complemented the rustic feel of the barn.
Enjoy their same day edit!
Molly + George were married at the beautiful chapel at Middlesex College. They had a traditional ceremony with a twist adding in some personal [and adorable] verses to the traditional wedding vows. Seeing the love and respect between them was just amazing. Their reception was held at one of our favourite venues in new england [The Barn at Gibbit Hill]. It was decorated beautifully with a simple and elegent floral design by [Twigs and Sprigs].
Jeff and I recently attended a yearly filmmakers conference and one of the things I took away from the experience was that all too often filmmakers forget to smile while filming. For Molly + George’s wedding we were on our smile A-game. This mindset made me more conscious of the other vendors at the wedding and what I noticed was that not only was everyone extremely talented and friendly but they were all smiling and having a genuine good time as well. Greg + Diane Capozzi of [C-Zone] were dancing the whole night, they kept the floor packed up until the end of the evening! The photographers James + Kate [The Feds] were so friendly, relaxed, and smiled the whole day! It was amazing to see how much we all love what we do and how it showed on our faces and the way we all interacted with the wedding party as well as each other.
The Same Day Edit was so much fun to put together, we knew that it was important to both Molly and George but the ration from the wedding party was amazing it really make you love what you do that much more when you get to see such an intense happy reaction from the couple and guests alike!
Thank you for choosing us to film your special day

As the wedding season slows down there are a few weddings that I have yet to share that were really incredible for us to be part of. One of those weddings was Margaux and Paul’s on the 1st of October. Margaux and Paul connected with us through their photographer Ned Jackson. I actually just had the pleasure of working with Ned again this past weekend. Not only is Ned’s work amongst the best you will find anywhere he is incredibly fun to work with and will make your day that much more enjoyable. Seriously if you are looking for a photographer you should check out Ned’s blog and website right away, he may be just what you are looking for and his style complements what we do incredibly well… such a treat to work with someone so incredibly talented and passionate about what they do!
