Lindsey and Patrick, like many of our couples, met at a bar in South Boston. Romance is in the air in Southie guys! Except, not exactly at first. Pat was hitting on Lindsey, and she was just not that into him. She made fun of his leather jacket with a chain in the middle of spring, but Patrick persisted. After a while, Lindsey got past the silly jacket and realized "Hey! He's actually pretty cute!" She got those digits and they texted later that night.Read More
"Your soulmate is not someone who comes into your life peacefully. Its someone who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality. Somebody that marks a before and after in your life."
Gina and Tony epitomize that elusive word, soulmate. Though many of us come to think of that term as unattainable, or over simplistic, Gina's sister in her toast, perfectly describes a more accurate and meaningful sense of the word. Gina and Tony each had their own separate and successful lives filled with friends and family. But one day, they set themselves on a path to change each other's lives.
When Gina and Tony reached out about having their Greek Orthodox and Boat Cruise reception wedding filmed, I nearly jumped with excitement for two reasons. First, we had never filmed a Greek Orthodox ceremony, and second, we had never filmed on a boat!
We started out the day getting at the beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel, where we had a balcony view to the boat down below where the reception would take place only a few hours later.
After that it was off to the church for the ceremony. The Greek Orthodox ceremony is full of visually rich customs, exchanging crowns, walking in a circle, smoke billowing out of the thurible.
Just like that, these two soulmates were bound together in marriage! We took our Dramamine (safety first people) and all hoped on board the Odyssey Boston's newest ship.
Gina and Tony were lead into the room by a huge drum powered Lebanese Band, and danced for quite a while with everyone.
It was surreal to see the Boston skyline fading into the night as we pulled away from the dock and as Gina's niece sang "The Prayer" along with a violin accompaniment. Sometimes life FEELS like a movie, and this was certainly one of those times.
For the reception they had a Lebanese Band and a DJ! Though the dance floor was small, everyone partied hard from the first deck all the way up to the third.
And now your moment of zen....
People often say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but whose to say that isn't true for ladies as well?! Mary and Jimmy fell in love over a plate of nachos. One Sunday funday at a mutual friend's house they met and those nachos and the rest is history.
South Boston is where Mary and Jimmy met and live, so naturally they decided to wed there as well! After getting ready at their home and the Boston Seaport Hotel, outside of which they had their first look. Jimmy said the sweetest thing I have EVER heard a groom say during a first look. The best part was I had no idea what he said because of traffic noise and standing a few meters away. It wasn't until I sat down to edit with the crystal clear audio from the microphone that I knew about the first time Jimmy knew Mary was the one.
Once that tearjerking moment was over we hopped in the party trolley to take some pics at the Boston Seaport, and then made our way to the beautiful St. Agatha's in Milton, MA for the ceremony.
As much as I try to convey their fun-loving personalities with gifs and personal anecdote, I think their wedding video speaks for itself.
Catholic ceremonies are beautiful and storied events, and theirs was beautiful and touching, both Mary and Jimmy teared up during their vows. But true to their nature the ceremony was not without its laughs. At the end Father Duffy sang an Irish Wedding Song, that has a lot more verses than you or anyone else attending might expect.
When we our venue walkthroughs about 6 months before the wedding Mary and Jimmy took me in to the reception hall at Venezia and pointed at the ceiling. "We had to make sure the ceiling was high enough at our venue so that a grown man could stand on another grown man, our friends like to party." I might be paraphrasing, but it was something to that effect, and they were not joking at all.
Clockwork provided the stellar tuneage for the evening, and everyone lived it up just as Mary and Jimmy predicted. Love you guys.
And now your moment of zen...
