Megan & Garrett planned an outdoor ceremony and tented reception on gorgeous Bourne Farm in Cape Cod. What did they do to ensure it wouldn’t rain on their wedding day???  They buried a bottle of bourbon onsite a week before.  I guess this is a southern tradition – and it worked!  They dug the bottle up the morning of the wedding and were blessed with a gorgeous New England day.  I absolutely love this couple and I know you will too.  Here is more about these two and their wedding story:

From Garrett: We first met in 2009 at 2pm in a dive bar in the West Village in Mahnattan on Valentine’s Day. I was a 1L at NYU Law, and Garrett was visiting his college friend who lived in Hoboken, NJ. When my friends and I walked into the bar, there were five other patrons: two uniformed sailors playing beer pong and three sad-looking guys in a booth. My two friends beelined for the sailors and I sat down with the guys in the booth who, to her great fortune, included Garrett. I roped them into a conversation and immediately started to crush on Garrett, who was totally not my type–wearing glasses and living at home with his mom. My crush got deeper, though, when Garrett explained that he was living at home to help his mom gut-renovate her brand new house and he worked full days over an hour away, commuting for several hours to make sure he could help his mom create her dream home. I was slightly burned when his friend told me (upon Garrett’s exit to go order another round) that Garrett was in a relationship with a girl who was studying abroad at the time. After we met, I accepted that he had a girlfriend, but I called him “Cape Cod Boy” and talked about him to my friends as someone who reminded me of the kind of guy I would want to date.

From Megan: After we met, we exchanged contact information, but didn’t see each other again until 2011. The night before Hoboken St. Patrick’s Day (a big day party across the Hudson on a Saturday) in March 2011, I was editing a law review article at NYU and my friends and I started discussing where we would go in Hoboken in the morning, since we had never been there. I saw that Gar had posted on Facebook that he was going to Hoboken to see his friends, and I joked with my friends that I should reach out to him. My friend reminded me that the worst that could happen is that Gar would “unfriend” me – so I messaged him! We “re-met” at a St. Patrick’s Day party hosted by a friend of Garrett’s and kissed that night, and we tarted dating long distance (Boston and New York) shortly after. By November of the same year, Garrett had moved to New York City to live with me and work at Google. It was fast, but we figured it would either go really well or really poorly–and either way, we’d know really quickly. Since then, we’ve had the opportunity to explore the world together, moving to Nashville and then LA, with amazing trips and experiences in between.

We wanted our wedding to be a celebration not just of our love, but also of the love and support we’re lucky enough to receive from our family and friends. Our theme of the wedding wasn’t anything to do with any color or anything like –our theme was “warm and inclusive,” because we wanted the wedding, and the days leading up to it, to feel warm, welcoming, and inclusive, which is why we planned open houses and cocktail celebrations every day from the Wednesday before right up to the Sunday after. This was a chance for us to join together as a couple and also be together with so many of the people that we love–we didn’t want to miss a single opportunity to spend time with everyone.

You guys.  Watch this wedding film.  This couple is full of personality.  Their venue rocked – seriously beautiful, and the groom “drew” a picture of his bride when he was 4.  So good.


“We met during freshman year of college (according to Mike, though Lindsay is skeptical) and then became close friends as we neared graduation and traveled together over the summer with a group of friends. And gradually, about six months later, we went from email correspondents to close friends, and then started dating.

The next 6 and a half years we commuted across states and coasts, as we pursued career opportunities and attended graduated school. About two months before our wedding we moved to the same city, and into the same home for the first time, which has (fortunately, but unsurprisingly) turned out to be far superior to a long distance relationship!”


“Above all, we wanted our friends and family to feel relaxed and welcome. The Finger Lakes is where Lindsay grew up, and so she and her family are especially looking forward to introducing those who haven’t been to the area – from local wines to local foods to hosting wedding events on two different lakes in the region. And while there are some formal touches (tuxes here and there!) we primarily tried to make everything as natural and fun and comfortable as possible.”

2014 has literally FLOWN by.  It was such an amazing year filled with incredible weddings of incredible couples.  And it all started out with these two.  We we were so honored to film the wedding of our friends Todd & Ceron in New York City on New Year’s Eve last year.  It was an incredible evening filled with love, romance, and of course… a great party!  xoxo!!

We are total suckers for an East Coast tented wedding – and Sarah from True Event always seems to outdo herself with these.  Sure it was windy but it didn’t matter.  All Maggie & Andrew cared about was getting married!  Maggie’s family summered in the Buzzards Bay area growing up so the location was extra special to them.  They had planned their wedding to be more of a celebration of friends and family than about them.  And it was – but of course Maggie & Andrew were still the stars!  What a party!

It’s not every day you film a wedding that incorporates a boat with wheels.  This one did, as well as many other unique elements (such as a wedding cake inspired by the band “The Killers”).  Seriously this is one to watch!  Gabbi & Bart’s wedding took place on the property of her parent’s home in gorgeous Newport Rhode Island.  The weather was fantastic and we used the opportunity to get some drone practice in.   The party was fantastic… incredible band, and I think all guests (including the older ones!) danced until the very end!
