My New Website is Up

I am so excited to finally have this new wedding website launched.  It has probably been two years since I started thinking that I need a new, fresh presence on the web.  I chalk it off to too much shooting and not enough time for web development, I guess.

I believe the new site will be a good tool for brides to see if my company is a good fit for them.  You may need a videographer, but you definitely have to find the RIGHT videographer.  There are so many styles and personalities out there that there is the perfect fit for every bride or event planner.

Professionals capture the entire experience, not just a video.  Let me help you find the right filmmaker for your event.     http://www.kellycicero.com.

Oh – and TOTALLY off topic.  Check out this video of an amazing kid with talent.

Weddings – a time to remember.

It’s the season of new beginnings as we slide into spring and summer.  Time for a wedding!  Couples, well okay…mostly the brides…have spent the winter months flipping through the glossy bridal magazines, jotting down notes, paring the budget and ugh…wrestling with the seating chart.   When you have spent so much time thinking, planning and acting on those ideas – why would you let those memories evaporate over time?  By hiring the right professional wedding filmmaker, you are giving yourself the best chance to capture those moments forever.  If you think a wedding film is not your style, then let me ask you this.  What it would mean for you to find your parent’s wedding film tucked in an old trunk.  The vows, the kiss and of course, the dancing.  What would you hope to see or hear?  Your mom laughing as she swung on the arm of your dad when he was 25 years old?  To be reminded of your family…and to help you to re-embrace it – what would that be worth to you?  A simple call and a conversation?  So call and let’s chat about having your wedding captured the way you want it.  A reflection of you, those people that you hold dear and all those countless hours of nailing down just the right details.   Tell me what means the most to you.

Talk to you soon,

New Snow, New Edits for Kelly Cicero Films

I was able to sneak out and hit the trails today to continue my coverage of the cross country areas for the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. A great late morning ski at Bear Notch Ski Touring Center in Bartlett, NH.  Trails were in excellent condition – one couldn’t tell that the Valley hadn’t received snow in a month.  I hit the waterfall trail again as well as heading up the hill on trail #2…more confident in my uphill abilities sans pulk and small child.  The snow was sticky, which for me, was perfect.  Uphills were tackled without the herringbone and filming downhill while skiing was less hairy.  The Mount Washington Valley Ski Touring and Snowshoe Foundation (Whitaker Woods area) were waiting to groom some corduroy and lay track on their trail system until more snow had fallen (the word from them as of 11AM this morning).

I had the pleasure to meet some great people in the lodge (names to go unmentioned due to extreme stardom), up on vacation from Massachusetts.  They brought some beautiful snow and some welcomed cheer to the area.  Thanks for sharing your stories with me.  I hope to see you all on the trails again.  And by the way, the chicken noodle soup cooked up by Bear Notch was absolutely amazing!  No joke.  If you like thick noodles…it is worth the trip alone just to get the soup.

Later in the day, the weather turned a bit wetter in the lower elevations.  The upper elevations should be fine.  The next few days are supposed to be white again…keep your fingers crossed.  I’ve more skiing to do!

More work on the burners…Crisite and Patrick’s wedding/DaCapo Concert/Purity Spring Resort Events/Muddy Paws Dogsledding Adventure at Omni Mount Washington Hotel and Bretton Woods.  Phew.  Filming Norma and Wally’s wedding this weekend up in Jackson.  Psyched!  There should be some incredible winter wedding shots to be captured.  Stay posted.

Creating a Fan Page in Facebook.

I am continuing my education in business and videography through a series of webinars created by Matt Davis from Video Business Coaching.  I am learning so much and am excited about what it will mean for my business.  I have always felt that video has received a bad reputation from the “cheesy” videos that are out there.  A wedding video doesn’t have to be like that.  In an effort to support a different perception, I am going to change my blog to Kelly Cicero Films – soon.  Bed first…kids tomorrow…hockey, then blog, tomorrow night.  In that order.  Stay tuned!

Just wrapped up the December weddings…

Onward to 2010!  Bookings are underway and it seems that the previously labeled “slow season” has disappeared.  Rachel and Henry’s wedding is finished and I am very excited about how it turned out.  A sneak peak to be posted soon.  What a beautiful couple…and they chose the unbelievably classy Mount Washington Hotel to host their wedding.  There is something about the cold and snow that brings out the purples and pinks in the Presidential Range and the surrounding skies.  Awesome.  Stay tuned for that video coming over the next few days…
