Mallory + Eric at Camp Kiwanee

“You guys seriously did such an amazing job, we will be sure to recommend you to EVERYONE we know that gets married :)! You were one of our favorite vendors and we so enjoyed working with you.Thank you soo much, we are so grateful to have had you two there :)!”- Mallory

A Bridesmaid’s reaction: “That video is quite possibly the best thing I have ever seen, EVER!!!”

Sometimes the love that you are looking for has been right under your nose the whole time. Like in so many movies we see, this is how it was for Mallory and Eric who share a long history of a friendship that developed into the very thing that they were both looking for.  Their sweet story was told as their wedding day unfolded in their letters to each other, their ceremony and the toasts given at the reception, and that friendship that got them to this point will take them on for the long haul.  We were honored to capture those things – as well as all of the details that Mallory had no doubt obsessed over in the months leading up to the big day (as all Brides do). We wish them wedding joy that grows ever deeper with each passing year. You are never done getting to know your spouse better. Happy journey!

Stephanie + Kris at the LaBelle Winery in Amherst, NH

Stop  and think of all the things that lead up to a wedding day – not the things that have been planned to go on the reception tables or the flowers, cake or food – but the commitments of the heart and the laughter and grace that hold two people together. It is no wonder that a wedding day is filled with so many wonderful (and often wise) words, intense emotion and sometimes hilarity. This is the story of one couple – like no other – with an individual and shared past that has led up to this one uniquely wonderful carved out day. Am I being too dramatic…too flowery? I don’t think so. One might think that we grow tired of going through the “routine” of a wedding day, but we don’t. We seriously don’t. We have often said in our posts that each wedding is different. Though weddings may have similarities, no two has the same story. These stories need to be preserved. They deserve to be honored by being filmed properly. This goes beyond just having the pleasure of sharing a cool film clip with friends on facebook. Everyone (at some point in their marriage) needs to be reminded of how it was at the beginning – when they first took that grand committment. To remember the wise words, sentiment, and fun and then to pass that on to their lineage. We are passionate about this. One should seriously pause and reconsider before dismissing “video” as a “luxury” they can’t afford, or something that they will “never watch beyond once or twice”. In fact, Stephanie told us that she had to put a cap on how much she watched this highlights because it was ruining her makeup; lol. Check out Kris and Sephanie’s business that they run together – Northeast Detailing! How does the saying go? A couple that runs a business together – stays together?:)

Ashley + Ryan’s Cape Cod Wedding

This was a fun one to edit. It brought us back to a day that was truly kissed with God’s blessing. Sunshine filled every aspect of the daytime activities. The Wychmere Beach Club is the ideal place for getting ready to get married. Every room is filled with windows that let the natural light in, our favorite. Wychmere also has a window filled reception room. This has got to be the most beautiful indoor reception area we have ever seen. They have a lovely deck where Cocktail hour takes place, which enabled us to get all of the clips you see of the room, the table and the centerpieces. When planning a wedding, this is another great thing to check into. Many, but not all wedding venues have a different area for guests to be in for cocktail hour. If they don’t, your cinematographer and photographer may not have the chance to get all of the shots of all of the amazing things you have planned for your tables, and the room. Once guests’ glasses, cameras, purses and coats start going down certain shot opportunities are lost.

Ashley and Ryan have a uniquely precious story. They met when they began school together at the age of 5, and now look at them! The family has watched God bring them together – being at the core of their relationship. We loved getting to know the two of them and their family. The whole day was what a wedding should be at it’s core. Congratulations Ryan and Ashley and thank you for letting us tell your story. We are so glad to have added you to the Hindsight family!

Here’s this wedding’s list of professionals we would recommend:

Reception Venue/Caterer: (as mentioned above) Wychmere Beach Club – Heather (the coordinator) was a peach! She gave us a quick tour, and this place has so much to offer. You could have your entire wedding day in this one place!

Photographer: Sarah Schulte (Sarah & her 2nd shooter, Maura were fantastic to work with.)

Hair/Makeup: Tada Makeup (VERY nice! Great at her job.)

Florist: New England Gardens

DJ: Danny Walsh (Great personality!)

Cake: The Chocolate Rose (Simple meets lovely)

Jeweler: (Groom’s Ring) Zales

Jessie + James at the Union Bluff Hotel

James worked with Jessie before they dated. He was so impressed with her character, that she was the measuring rod by which he assessed anyone he went on a date with. Wow! There is no higher compliment a man could give a woman. It goes without saying, and is clear in the highlights (and even more so in their full-length film) how much James appreciates what he has in Jessie. When they knew that they were meant to be, he didn’t waste any time asking her to marry him. Being a part of their day – full of smiles, laughter, sunshine and the ocean was a treat and an honor for the two of us. Thank you Jessie and James for trusting us to tell your beautiful story.

It’s kind of a treat to work so close to home, and the Union Bluff Hotel is a great place to have a wedding. Here are the professionals we would recommend from this wedding  day.
