Crane Estate Wedding \ Kelsey & Ed

Crane Estate Wedding

Crane Estate Wedding:  You would be hard pressed to find a more elegant venue than The Crane Estate. It’s been in countless movies and television shows and I was told Bill Murray has hung out for weeks at a time somewhere on the property.

Kelsey and Ed’s ceremony was held in Newburyport in Massachusettes.  It’s a great little town where you’re never more than 50 yards from good coffee and a pastry of some sort.

Then the party moved to sea. A camera was lost to the high winds but fortunately, the backup cameras did the job. A drone showed up. Forever Lucky was suspected of course but it was a guest who captured some mighty impressive footage. Unfortunately, drones aren’t allowed on the property but I did use two of the shots sent to us that were the most distant.

We were very excited to be working with Brass Tacks Photography again. We worked with them on another quintessential New England wedding last year. I highly recommend Andrea.  Very easy to work with a great eye.

Von Trapp Lodge Wedding – Sasha + Richard

Von Trapp Lodge Wedding

Von Trapp Lodge Wedding

Von Trapp Lodge Wedding:  Stowe is the quintessential town to hold your destination wedding. It can welcome big families, there’s plenty to do every day of the year and the backdrop is stunning. The Von Trapp Family Lodge hand handle all three of those requirements.  It’s no wonder Sasha and Richard chose it for their wedding.

Jake capture the wedding and his images are stunning.  The evening concluded with a rap set by none other than the groom himself and it was awesome.  It also seems we’ve dodged a lot of really bad weather days this summer.  It’s been a soggy one, but you’d hardly know by our films.  And be sure to check out our super slow-mo fireworks.

Onteora Mountain House Wedding – Sophia + Tait

Onteora Mountain House Wedding

Onteora Mountain House Wedding

Onteora Mountain House Wedding: We posted briefly about Sophia and Tait’s beautiful wedding, held at the incredible Onteora Mountain House. New York’s Hudson Valley. It makes a great destination spot for much of New England and the North East.

Sophia and Tait hail from Delaware and while Delaware has some beautiful locales, it’s impossible to get the feeling of the incredibly lush mountains.

We filmed Sophia’s sister’s wedding in 2015 and they have a true passion for the outdoors. Sophia and Tait did the research and found incredible spots for photography. We loved their wedding. Check out photographer Pat Robertson’s incredible pictures and DJ Lou Paris gave us audio for the day. He’s the most prepared DJ I’ve met in ten years.

Excelsior Lancaster Pennsylvania Wedding Highlights

Excelsior Lancaster Pennsylvania

Excelsior Lancaster Pennsylvania: We’ve shot weddings in Lancaster on many occasions. When Rachael and Kyle inquired about our services, their location was new to me. After googling I learned a long vacant hall in the center of Lancaster was being renovated to become an upscale event space.

What was cool, was the space isn’t  finished and there is an entire floor undergoing a complete overhaul.  That’s the floor Rachael and Kyle settled on doing their first look. I’m sure the floor will look extra great in the future but it had a certain unique appeal that looked perfect on film. It was a nice contrast to all the many wedding we’ve done in Lancaster with a rural setting.

Thanks to Dan for knocking it out of the ballpark.  The shots looked amazing.

Ashokan Reservoir

Hudson Valley Wedding Videography

Hudson Valley Wedding Videography:I’m not familiar with New York’s  Hudson Valley have only driven through a couple of times but was blown away by its beauty. It was so lush it I expected to see a Brontosaurus walking down the path like in Jurassic Park. It was a wet weekend so the green was amped: its lushness reminds me of Hawaii minus the palm trees.

Sophia and Tate did their research.  They knew there must be a quiet picturesque spot where we’d be able to do photos and video and their tenacity paid off.

They found a narrow path leading to a grouping of rusty row boats, some chained to trees untouched for a decade. Deer hung about wondering who was visiting, but turns out they had better things to do that to the subject of a video.

While filming we managed a cell phone snap posted on Instagram down below.  We really looking forward to seeing what the pro’s photos will look like.  I’ll post a link when I have.

I’m not sure if I’d be able to find this exact spot again but it’s worth the effort! A song was written about the beauty of Ashokan, made famous by Ken Burn’s Civil War.

We’ll be editing this one shortly.

Morris Arboretum Wedding Videography

Morris Arboretum Wedding Videography:

I love the shots Craig captured at Kailee and Tim’s wedding at Morris Arboretum in Philadelphia. Philly has many wedding gems and this ranks high. I especially love the dance footage Craig filmed.  The band was on point and there must have been about forty members on stage.

The incomparable photographer Andy Todes referred us and we’re thrilled he did.  If you’re not following him yet, you should.  He better he gets the easier he makes it look. We enjoy having an opportunity to work together.

Music on this track is Hanging On by War on Drugs

This is a fun one. Enjoy!

Katie + Aaron | Wedding Highlights | Cape Charles VA

Eastern Shore Videography

Eastern Shore Videography: Katie & Aaron

Cape Charles, Virginia was smart. They installed a LOVE statue right by the beach made with all the things adored on the Easter Shore of Virginia. It wasn’t there last time I visited and there was a small line of people ready to be photographed in front of it. Now it’s a must stop for photographers

Katie and Aaron were married on Memorial Day weekend. They are perfectly matched.  One of the cool things is seeing how the nerves of the day disappear when couples finally get to see each other and share the experience.

Finding the perfect song is easy when you have the luxury of great footage. Thanks to  Kimii for joining the team!  And thanks to the talented photographer, Alex Tenser. Enjoy!

Merion Golf Club Weddings

We have been fortunate to have been witness to all of the Haldy family weddings over the years. We wish they had three or four more kids!  Today we’re posting their son’s John’s wedding to Kate.

Chuck has been masterful and always manages to be in the best spots. Kate told me Stand by Me is a particularly meaningful song to them and I was happy when I found a way to weave it into their day.

We love shooting Main Line weddings.  The Philadelphia area has so many amazing venues you can shoot there all summer and not have two weddings look like same.  Enjoy some of our favorite highlights from Kate and John’s wedding day.
