How and Why Did You Name Your Company Olive Ewe Productions?

Olive Ewe Productions, what's with the name?? It's not random I promise!

When tasked with dreaming up a name for this little Boston based wedding video company I knew I needed help. So, I enlisted the help of lovely man whom I call my best friend and partner. Early in our relationship we would text each other silly things like Elephant Shoe, or Olive Juice, to each other because phonetically it sounds like "I Love You." This is the main idea behind the company name. 

As we sat in our dingy basement apartment brainstorming and putting strange words together, suddenly "Olive Ewe" stumbled out of somebody's mouth. THAT'S IT! I shouted.

Olives are a symbol of peace and wisdom in western culture, which I do believe are important aspects of a relationship. However let's be honest. The real reason I latched on to Olive Ewe was because I LOVE sheep. I know that sounds a little weird because they are some of the dumbest animals around. But hear me out. 

  1. I grew up watching Lamb Chop while holding my favorite stuffed animal in the world, a Lamb.
  2. Rachel, my name, in Hebrew רחל, literally means Ewe. 
  3. They are fluffy and cute!

Why the word productions, instead of videography, or videos, or simply films?

To me your wedding film is more than showing up with a camera on the day and slapping some music underneath the images and calling it done. I get to know you as a couple and as individuals, your likes and dislikes, and the things that matter most to you. Our wedding films are stories that allow you to relive some of your favorite memories for your lifetime and beyond. This requires an approach and attention to detail worthy of a full fledged film production.

And there you have it, the origin and story behind Olive Ewe Productions' name.

Fort Getty Rhode Island Wedding, Alli + Noah

Poets often describe love as an emotion that cannot be controlled.
— Nicholas Sparks

Love is not unlike the weather I suppose. Cue this visually stunning, romantic, rainy, beach wedding. Yes, you read that correct. One of the most beautiful New England weddings I have had the pleasure of witnessing both inside and out, and it absolutely poured right before the ceremony. 

Let this be a lesson to all who read, that no matter the circumstances of your day, it will never be any less special or beautiful so long as you are surrounded by the people you love (and maybe some lobsters, an ice cream truck, and enveloped in a stunning dress or suit.)

Without further adieu, I present to you Alli & Noah rainy, beach, New England, wedding video. 

May your rainy times be spent full of people you love, and may the happy times be spent dance under sunsets on the beach.

And now your moment of zen...

Andover Country Club Wedding, Brittany + Francis

Brittany and Francis had been together a little over a decade when they were married on May 29th, 2016. Its such a joy to see two people that have been together for so long be so excited about spending the rest of their lives together. I mean, look at their faces. Happiest people alive!

The ceremony took place at the stunning St Augustine's Parish with Father Lou officiating. Father Lou was the kindest and most insightful Deacon I have had the honor of filming. He pointed out that although Catholic weddings must abide by certain rules, that the options given to the couple can make 130 combinations of a Catholic ceremony and today was Brittany and Francis' version. LOVED that. 

I could go on to describe their take on Catholic vows, but I think its best that you watch at this point.

 

My favorite surprise of the day was the cousin who brought his fiddle to play some Irish tunes after the ceremony and during the reception. And that wasn't even all the live music that day! The band The Party Factor supplied the tunes and entertainment for the reception at the Andover Country Club and totally crushed it. 

No moment of zen this time, this day was action packed!
