Benefits of Working with One Company

It’s not just any Wedding, It’s YOUR Wedding!

How working with One Company can simplify your Wedding Day!

We had the pleasure of working with Amanda and Matthew on their Gorgeous Winter Wedding held at Cruiseport Gloucester. They took advantage of our Full offering reserving 617 Weddings for DJ, Photo, Video and Lighting. We were able to simplify their planning and give them a single online portal to document all of their Wedding day details.

Take a look below at Amanda and Matt’s Review posted on theknot.com 

Triple Threat of the Wedding Industry! (DJ, Photo & Video)

” 617 Weddings provided the entertainment and captured every beautiful detail during our wedding on December 13, 2014. From the date we inquired about booking until the minute the wedding was over, the service, professionalism, attention to detail, and personal care 617 Weddings provided was impeccable! Truly the “Triple Threat of the Wedding Industry”, we HIGHLY recommend booking 617 Weddings to be part of your best day ever. Thank you so much Jimmie, Roland and Russell, from the bottom of our hearts

Jimmie Espo is not only a DJ but an expert in the wedding industry. I first noticed Jimmie after we got engaged and began researching for one of the most important aspects, in our opinion, of a wedding. He was the first and last DJ we inquired about booking. On the 617 Weddings website, we watched multiple videos of weddings he DJ’ed. We immediately knew Jimmie was “the one” to entertain on our special day. When contacting his office, we spoke directly with Jimmie who luckily had a cancellation on our wedding date 3 hours prior to our conversation. We were ecstatic knowing our wedding would be a success with Jimmie’s personality and talent. Someone’s misfortune was our gain! During our initial meeting Jimmie was focused on getting to know us as a couple and our expectations for our day. We felt Jimmie was knowledgeable, easy to relate to and really listened to our needs. The online profile he had us create allowed us to list in detail what songs we liked and disliked, our wedding entrance and any little details pertinent to each member of the wedding party. We found the online profile easy to navigate. We met with Jimmie about 3 times before our wedding. He personally gave us his cell phone number to contact him with any questions and concerns during the week leading up to the wedding. He even handled “bridal anxiety” with ease (not only an entertainer but a therapist!). On December 13th, Jimmie and his assistant lived up to the reputation of Boston’s Most Elite Wedding Professionals. Our guests were on the dance floor from the moment Jimmie was on the microphone and mixing our song choices with his suggestions. His personality had our guests reflecting on our reception for weeks following the wedding. We could not be more pleased with Jimmie as a professional and now who we consider a friend. He went above and beyond to make our day exactly how we pictured it. We cannot thank Jimmie Espo enough for his hard work and dedication. We encourage all engaged couples to contact 617 Weddings and request Jimmie as your entertainer!

We first noticed Roland Silva through his photography displayed in the offices at 617 Weddings during our initial consult with Jimmie Espo. Every photo we looked at appeared to tell a romantic story-this is exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. Based simply off his work, we chose Roland as our photographer for our wedding. As a couple we spoke with Roland over the phone who had a detailed list of questions and provided us with a timeline of how our day would be uniquely captured (by the way he loves to talk!). From the moment Roland starting snapping photos while preparing for the day, to the last dance of the night,  we could feel his passion behind the lens. He pays attention to detail and not only is an expert when photographing poses but also candid shots. As a bride, you will feel like a model by the end of the night with Roland’s specific instructions on head tilting and hand placement! Roland sticks to a schedule and has great time management skills. He is extremely easy to work with and made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera (a non camera shy bride, and a camera shy groom). Just a week after our wedding, while on our honeymoon, we received an email from Roland with our wedding images. He captured moments behind months of meticulous planning that went behind our wedding day. We could not be more satisfied with his work! We highly recommend couples visit Roland’s website, view his work & call him before your wedding date becomes unavailable!

At first we were unsure if we needed a Videographer for our wedding but after much thought and viewing Russell Smithe‘s videos in the  617 Wedding’s office, we knew it was a must. We met with Russell and immediately fell in love with his personality! Russell made us smile just being in his presence; very easy to talk to and really got to know us as individuals and a couple. Russell is as organized as they come and as a bride this puts your mind at ease, knowing you will not have to worry when it comes time to filming. He describes his “unobtrusive” style of filming and we will be the first to attest to that! The most Russell was visualized was during the bridal preparation, then he vanished into the crowd of guests during the reception. He made everyone feel very comfortable, as the video camera was not “in your face.” We were able to act ourselves and not put on a facade for footage. Two weddings video clips were posted to the 617 Weddings Facebook Page within a week of our wedding. This just shows how hard working and dedicated Russell is to his career. These clips captured so many important moments, it makes us anxious (in a good way!) to see his final product. He is prompt to respond to any post wedding questions regarding the next step with our purchased fairytale package. We hope to stay in touch with Russell as he is such a positive person to be around. If we could give Russell a 10/10 review, we would. We urge couples to watch his videos and contact him so you can have a fabulous experience like we did!
