Wedding proposal planner?

I thought this was interesting-the concept of a wedding proposal planner. Have you ever heard of this before?

What Should I book and When?

The save-the-dates are out. The guys got their tuxes. The DJ has met with you twice. Your photographer’s face book page is teeming with weddings that seem to rival Hollywood. What’s next?
     For better or worse, it is usually at this stage in the planning that I come in. As a wedding videographer, I’m accustomed to my place on the wedding to-do list. It’s somewhere between “order the cake” and “get out of the limo”. Yes, I’ve been contacted by desperate individuals who have perhaps tardily reassessed their need for a video, and I’ve both accepted the opportunity and also had to turn a few away due to prior bookings. And then there have been brides who haven’t even settled on a date but know they want a wedding videographer here in Massachusetts. I have yet had a client who is still searching for a spouse, but I’m sure that’s coming.
     Likely you fall somewhere in between these extremes. Not surprisingly, the epitome of matrimonial etiquette, Emily Post, is silent on when the videographer should be booked. My recommendation, if I may brashly interject in lieu of Ms. Post, is that you book your wedding videographer as far in advance as possible.
     It’s something that is important to you, your family, your friends, and your future generations. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to find a dependable, knowledgeable and unobtrusive filmmaker for your future family heirloom just because you were distracted by the color of the bridal sandals or the flavor of red velvet frosting for the snack bar.


When you know your date:
1. Book the reception facility
2. Ceremony location and officiant
3. Photographer/entertainment/videographer

     I put these three vendors on the same line because we interact the most with you and have the highest effect on your day. Does it surprise you that you should choose us before your dress? Well, it may. But a true professional at realistic rates with ample reviews AND an open calendar is harder to find than Vera Wang at your local Salvation Army.
     The planning may seem overwhelming, but the more professionals you have working for you and with you, the easier it’ll be. We’ve been to hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of weddings. We know our stuff. We can and want to help. Hire us while we’re available!

Allanah&Rob: Zukas' Hilltop Barn

I cannot believe we're halfway through October! I met with Allanah&Rob forever ago, and I'm not sure who time passed more quickly for-them or myself. I was really looking forward to their wedding today because they are such down-to-earth, normal people and I knew all the other vendors who would be working since Rob's sister, Allison, is the event coordinator and "wedding planner extraordinaire" of Zukas. I wish I could film every wedding there. That place is so picturesque and the staff is just incredibly focused.

The uplighting, provided by DJ Greg Bedard, looked phenomenal and JP Arthur Tatro and his wife did an outstanding job as usual. If you're looking for a really calm, knowledgeable and flexible JP, definitely contact Arthur and Eileen Tatro. They are a highly organized, friendly, responsible husband and wife team.

Rob and Allanah were visited by their precious two beagles prior to the start of the ceremony. This gave me some awesome footage that will definitely be on their wedding video.

I am so grateful to Allison for recommending me to her brother and I'm thrilled I am able to contribute to their big day and what will surely be a fun married life!

Rebecca&Brendan

Rebecca&Brendan got married on one of the most perfect autumn days imaginable. A stunningly blue sky totally devoid of clouds was above us as I arrived for the photo shoot during the preparation at Rebecca's parents' charming old colonial in Stafford Springs, CT. Her yard provided a perfect nature-like atmosphere for some fun pictures and video after all the bridesmaids were dressed and then we headed off to a very moving ceremony at the congregational church about two football fields away.

I've never been to Stafford Springs before but it is essentially the perfect New England town-almost reminiscent of a nineteenth-century village.
The Publick House once again provided wonderful staff, prompt service, and delicious food all set in the immaculate and gorgeous landscape of the oldest restaurant in North America. I know this because I worked here for 3 years during high school and memorized the spiel about it being built in 1771, and having been visited by George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and Big Bird (who lives in nearby Pomfret). Note that not all three of these guys dined together-although that certainly would've been interesting.
I was privileged to once again work with Tom Bruhl-musician, DJ, entertainer, MC, flutist, guitarist, saxophonist, and all-around great guy. He is a DJ that is also basically a one-man band. I see bands or DJs who play their own music only about 10% of the time and brides, if you're reading this, DEFINITELY consider it. A band/musical DJ can make for a really unforgettable experience. Tom is entertaining but not over the top; he knows how to keep your guests happy and interested int he proceedings, but he is by no means a show stealer. He maintains the perfect balance of professionalism, genuine care, and fun. I hope I can work with him again soon.

Rebecca and Brendan went to prom together almost 20 years ago and through an interesting series of events, ended up together, and they couldn't be happier.
I got some great footage and Rebecca and Brendan will have their DVD before they know it!

Sarah&Tyler

The last remnants of winter frost were disappearing and flowers were just starting to re-emerge whenSarah, Tyler and I met together in the spring at their home in Quincy. Sarah had already apprised me of some surprises at the wedding and it was my mission in this meeting not to let the cat out of the bag. I managed

to do it, and the meeting went well. The summer progressed and all to quickly turned to fall. And then, on the first official day of autumn 2013, Sarah and Tyler were married.

Upon arriving at the church early and powernapping in the car, I was delighted to meet Dennis and Xien of Picture Perfect Photography. We had worked together in the past and although we couldn't remember when or where, our bond was reunited and together we worked hard to capture the priceless memories of Sarah&Tyler's big day.

And when I say big day, I mean BIG day. They had a large wedding party which made the extended photo session on the beach in Mashpee a ton of fun. Dennis even assisted me by driving my car as I got some (potentially illegal) video of the festive bridal party celebrating in the trolley as we drove around the Northern shore of Cape Cod.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fun was just beginning though, because after some hilarious and emotional toasts, Tyler was surprised by Sarah and her college a ca pella group performing for him. After the cake cutting, he was again surprised by a perfectly choreographed flash mob!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the parent dances following dinner, Sarah&Tyler's guests did.not.leave.the.dance.floor. They stayed out there right up until the sparkler sendoff at the very end. Such a fun wedding to shoot! Congratulations Sarah&Tyler!!!
