Diana and Faris were married on May 27, 2017. The ceremony took place at St Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church and the reception at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, RI.
I worked with photographer Alexandra Jarige of Jarige Photography.
Rosecliff is an extraordinary venue for a wedding and one of Newport's most lavish mansions. It was commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, architect Stanford White modeled Rosecliff after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. After the house was completed in 1902, at a reported cost of $2.5 million, Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here, including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini.
Shay and Scott were married on May 6, 2017 at the Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster, MA. Although I recorded their vows during the wedding, I suggested recording the vows after the wedding for clearer sound quality. The video opens with a section from both of their vows which give the video a warm and personalized feeling.
It was a beautiful and windy day on April 29, 2017 in Boston at the Liberty Hotel. This is the first wedding I've done at The Liberty Hotel in Boston. What a venue!
Here is a bit of history about The Liberty Hotel: it was built between 1848 and 1851. The original jail was built in the form of a cross with four wings of Quincy granite extending from a central octagonal rotunda with a 90-foot-tall atrium. The wings allowed segregation of prisoners by sex and category of offense. Thirty arched windows, each 33 feet high, provided ventilation and natural light. The original jail contained 220 granite cells, each 8 feet by 10 feet. Over its 140 year life, the jail had a number of famous inmates: Sacco and Vanzetti, Mayor James Michael Curley, Malcolm X, women suffragettes and World War II prisoners from the German submarine Unterseeboot 234.
Amazing! Enjoy Jill and Andy's Liberty Hotel Wedding Highlights!
Puerta Vallarta Botanical Gardens, what an extraordinarily lovely venue. This wedding, set on new years, was absolutely unique and customized right down to the sombrero for the bride's papillon.
There were performance by Mexican dancers, a full on mariachi ensemble, a vintage Blue VW (which they drove off in), and fireworks!

I was fortunate to make a video about my friend's jewerly/clothing store in Puerta Vallarta Mexico, Bunny Shapiro. She designs and makes all her jewelry by hand. She has incredible style and I love her attention to detail.
Alex and Alexandra (Alex and Alex) were married at the Museum of Science, Boston. They set most of their wedding video music to the soundtrack of Queen! So original, I love it! My colleague Akhil shot this wedding and I did the editing.
One of my favorite venues in Boston is the State Room with it's 360 degree view of Boston. This couple, Victoria and Mike had an exquisite wedding from beginning to end. It was a jewish wedding with some Orthodox undertones. I was in love with the succulent decorations and the color theme. Also, Victoria is one of the nicest and warmest brides I've ever encounter. She embodied the word "chill" completely.
Mt. Hope Farm is a spectacular venue and this was a picture perfect wedding. It was wonderful to work with photographer Rebecca Arthurs. The Ketuba signing took place in a quaint log cabin, the ceremony was outdoors under a flowing chuppah. The live band was dynamic and kept the party moving all night.
