Stephanie and Steven have been together since high school, but what's interesting is they do not strictly refer to themselves as high school sweethearts. Instead, they reminisce on the notion that they grew up together; moving from high school to college to working world sweethearts. Their wedding day at Lake of Isles in North Stonington CT was a beautiful reflection of their growth together, and a promise to continue that commitment to each other.Read More

Are you available THIS SATURDAY?
The morning of July 26th, 2016 I woke up on the west coast ready to catch my flight back to Boston with this message in my inbox. Kimberly and Eric decided they needed to have a wedding video four days before their big day! I am so happy they stumbled upon Olive Ewe Productions, and that we were available, because boy, this is a wedding to remember.
Some fun facts I learned on my call with Kimberly before leaving for the airport:
- Kimberly and Eric have been together for 25 years
- Eric owns the restaurant, Capo in South Boston among others, where the reception will take place
- Kimberly is wearing a CRIMSON colored dress
- They are the coolest people (well she didn't say that but I could tell already)
We met up for the first time at the rehearsal at St Cecilia in Back Bay and conducted our pre-interview, which is basically a practice run for the real interviews you see in all our videos.
Their love story is beautiful not only because of the obvious length of time they have shared together, but because of the care and devotion they show towards one another in the stories they choose to remember and tell. Kimberly spared a pair of gloves for Eric on a cold night at Boston University and unknowingly sparked their relationship, and Eric all but forced a restaurant to stay open a little longer to feed Kimberly on their first date. If that's not love I'm not sure what is.
Take a moment to watch their beautiful Boston wedding video.
How awesome is their proposal story?! I literally cannot think of anything more romantic.
I need to take a moment here to shamelessly plug Eric's restaurant Capo. The food, THE FOOD, people, the food. Have your event, wedding, or just have your next dinner there, go and thank me later.
Also, let this be a beacon of hope to anyone out there considering a different colored wedding dress. They exist, they are amazing, don't even question it just do it.
Kimberly and Eric, thank you so much for choosing us to film your wedding. I know you will enjoy the next 25 years (and then some) together.
Your moment of zen....
Fun fact about Taryn, she studied film in school. Commence my excitement to film someone's wedding who studied the very craft I practice and love! Yes I was also a tiny bit nervous to live up to this film lover's standards, but boy did Taryn and Rob make my job easy. The sheer joy of the day was everywhere and impossible to miss. I've never seen a bride sing and dance so much while getting ready! And when I "interviewed" Taryn, I don't think I had to ask a single question.
Taryn and Rob met while working together at a radio station, and had a pretty epic first date I will let them tell themselves...
The reception at the Salem Country Club was absolutely killer, these two know how to bring a party to life! There is no doubt they are in for a life of love and laughter together.
I mean come one, look at the smiles on their faces during that sunset! Cheers to happily ever after!
