Nicole and John - 08.30.08 - Onsite Video

Well --it's the classic story--boy from Pittsburgh meets girl from RI and 2 years later here we are. Nicole and John --what can I say--just an absolutely beautiful wedding. I had the pleasure to work with make-up artist Kristin Greene for the 2nd time in one week--she is wildly popular. Also Erica Sciarra provided make-up services for the bridesmaids. Yes --as you can guess--I spent a lot of time with these girls yesterday! The Crowne Plaza Rotunda room looked beautiful last night. The flowers and centerpieces from Florals by Alisa were stunning. Bob Mainelli played and sang during the dinner set--now I've always said that Bob is the best pure vocalist that I have ever heard--and he was outstanding last night. Kenny from Elite Entertainment took over after dinner and the party was on. Now, on to the onsite video that was played at the reception last night. I always ask why do I put myself through this stress (onsite videos are very stressful to produce) lol. Well, when the show ends and the bride and groom come over to you and hug you with love and gratitude like last night--well--that's why. Nicole and John, enjoy a replay of the show from last night. ---John

Kristen and Dan - 08.23.08

Back to the blog. It has been a busy month and I am trying to maintain the 30-45 day DVD promise to my brides—so far –so good. With that kind of turnaround it has been a challenge to post previews---but I will post several new previews over the next few days. I am starting with the most recent shoot as I promised Kristen and Dan a preview for their out of state friends and family. This was my 2nd wedding shoot with Sabrina Scolari Photography over the past 3 weeks—what can I say, she is so talented and really gave me my own space to create the shots that I needed. The Belle Mer was just beautiful and the love that this couple share could truly be felt all day. I hope this preview captures in some small way the essence of the day. Enjoy--John
