Lake of Isles North Stonington, CT Wedding Video, Mellissa + Tyler

Melissa and Tyler met in high school, even though they went to two different high schools. Their relationship blossomed one summer night, out around a campfire. 

Since that night, they had been almost inseparable and used to spend hours talking on the phone with one another, often times drifting off to sleep in the early hours of the morning. Their families have also grown incredibly close and Tyler works for Mellissa's Father's company. 

Tyler proposed to Mellissa on her birthday in the most elaborate of ways. Not only did he surprise her with the proposal on a late afternoon hike, but when they returned back home their living room was filled with all of Melissa's friends and family for her surprise Birthday party!!

They were married in one of the MOST beautiful churches I have ever seen, St Patrick’s Cathedral in Norwich CT. Monsignor Tony, one of the kindest officiants I have ever encountered, presided over the ceremony with great love for the couple as they and their families have long been parishioners. He even had tissues on hand when Mellissa got choked up during her vows. 

The beautiful ceremony was followed by a totally rockin' reception at Lake of Isles in North Stonington, CT. 

This day was full of so much love and emotion its hard to put into words, so you really should enjoy one of my favorite fall wedding videos we have ever created.  

What a beautiful fall day in New England surrounded by the loveliest of families and friends. 

Now here's a fun behind the scenes story. As I pulled up to the church in my usual flurry of excitement. I was backing into my parallel spot a little fast perhaps and hit the curb which popped my tire! I got out and immediately heard the hiss of the air escaping. Quickly I put in an order in online with AAA and instructed them to arrive when the ceremony ended. I filmed the most stunning ceremony and came back out to a friendly AAA person who popped on my spare, and off I went to the reception! A bit more excitement than I prefer right before heading in to film the most important moment in someone's life, but rest assured everything went beautifully. 

Now your moment of zen.....

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.

Popponesset Inn Cape Cod Wedding, Chelsea + Conor

The cape is a magical place, for the obvious reasons like the natural beauty of the waves and sunsets, but also because of the beautiful relationships that are strengthened and forged there. It affords the opportunity to escape from the bustle of busy life in Boston and truly focus on the people around you. It is here that Chelsea and Conor fell in love after a long courtship on Conor's behalf. It only made sense for them to have the most grandfantabulous wedding day right in the very place where their relationship blossomed. 

We started off the day getting ready and jamming to some Tay Swift at an AirBNB in Mashpee, MA.

After everyone finished getting the movie star treatment, we loaded up the car and hopped on over to the church for the ceremony. At this point you're going to have to watch their Cape Cod wedding video to understand the quaintness of Saint Anthony's Church in Falmouth, the beauty of this couple, and the love that was evident all day long. 

The rest of the evening at the Popponesset Inn was nothing short of wonderful. During our beach photo and video session the bridal party all climbed up on one of those giant wooden lifeguard chairs, it was pretty hilarious to watch. 

After a soft pastel sunset during the speeches, everyone danced long into the night. A magical wedding day in Cape Cod and one we will not soon forget. 

And now your moment of zen....

Shout out to Sarah Murray Photography for being an amazing photography/collaborator/human being on this wedding. If you're getting married on the Cape, you need to hire her for your photography.
