For northern New Jersey couples who want a traditional Jewish ceremony and a modern reception all in one convenient location, a Temple Emanu-El wedding is an obvious choice.

Rachel and Stephen - Perona Farms

Rachel and Stephen's Perona Farms Wedding

Rachel Goodgal and Stephen Budinsky tied the knot at scenic Perona Farms in Andover, New Jersey. The beautifully landscaped grounds, which overlook Perona Lake, provided the perfect backdrop for the couple's day.

After getting ready with their respective wedding parties, Rachel and Stephen shared a first look. Stephen waited for his bride in one of Perona Farms' sunny atriums, and Rachel walked up behind him. The couple enjoyed a few private moments together before the day's events began.

In the Jewish tradition, the spouses-to-be signed the Ketubah in an intimate gathering of close family and friends. They then exchanged vows in a romantic outdoor ceremony.


Hurricane Productions videographers Corynn Egreczky and Tyler Ajamian captured every special moment of the couple's Perona Farms wedding, from the pre-ceremony preparations to the last dance. After their big day, Rachel and Stephen received a feature-length, 60 to 90-minute edit of the full-day footage, including the ceremony, toasts, special dances, and a beautiful rendition of "Can't Help Falling in Love," performed by the bride for her new husband. The couple's video package also came with a 3 to 4-minute highlight video, which is perfect to share with friends and family on social media.

If you're on the fence about a second videographer for your wedding, consider this: With two professionals documenting your day, you'll get two different perspectives, highlighting the experiences of both you and your fiancé.

Megan and Tyler - Versailles Ballroom at the Ramada Inn

Megan and Tyler's Versailles Ballroom Wedding

On a gorgeous late summer day, Megan Doorly and Tyler Ruperto were married in the quiet New Jersey beach town of Lavallette.

The couple and their respective wedding parties celebrated and exchanged gifts as they prepared for the big day. Megan and her bridesmaids walked from their rental house down to the shore. Meanwhile, Tyler and his groomsmen departed from their rooms at the Ramada Inn in Toms River – where the new Mr. and Mrs. Ruperto would later hold their Versailles Ballroom wedding reception – and shared a toast on the bus ride to the beach.

The First Look

Megan and Tyler planned a first look that was captured by Hurricane Productions media professionals. The wedding party lined up along the entrance to the beach, creating an aisle for the bride to walk through. The groom waited for her near the water, with his back turned.

She tapped his shoulder and the two shared a private, emotional moment together before their ocean-side photo shoot.

Sparkler Send-Off: The Perfect Way to End Your Wedding

There's nothing quite like a sparkler send-off to bookend a fantastic wedding reception.

Think about the typical end of a wedding reception. The music stops, the lights come on, and in an instant, the mood and the magic of the evening comes to a screeching halt. Guests slowly shuffle off the dance floor, gather their things, and mill around the venue saying goodbyes and having last-minute conversations. It's a pretty anticlimactic way to finish one of the most exciting events in a couple's life.

One way to end your wedding on a high note is to incorporate a sparkler send-off.

Before you and your new spouse leave your reception, have your friends and family line up outside your venue with sparklers. Once the sparklers are lit, your guests can raise them above their heads to create a pathway to your first night as newlyweds. This allows you to keep up the energy and excitement of the evening, and give your guests something big to talk about on their way out.

So what does a sparkler send-off look like? Check out the send-off guests gave this couple, who were married at HollyHedge Estate in New Hope, PA. In addition to providing DJ entertainment, Hurricane Productions was there to capture this special moment on video:

Whether you choose to close out your wedding with sparklers or a different way, you'll want to have your videographer there to document it. What better way to end your wedding video than with the special send-off? Hurricane Productions captures and edits wedding moments, including sparkler send-offs, into a beautiful, artistic compilations.

The First Look Captured by Wedding Videography

Ask any married couple about their wedding day, and they'll likely tell you it felt like a blur.

They'll tell you to savor each moment, because it all happens so quickly. That's why it's so important to hire a great videographer as your eyes and ears for the day. This talented team preserves each beautiful memory for you and your fiancé to look back on and relive for years to come.

One such memory that many couples consider absolutely essential to capture is the First Look. This moment when the soon-to-be-newlyweds see each other in their wedding attire for the first time is special and intimate.

After the hustle and bustle of preparing for the ceremony and pictures, planning a First Look allows you to take a minute to breathe, relax, and remember what's important — each other.

Here are just a few examples of First Look videos that Hurricane Productions has created for our couples:

Whether you want your First Look to be a private moment between you and your spouse-to-be, or you want your family and friends there to witness it, it's important to speak with your videographer about capturing this beautiful and often emotional meeting. You and your new spouse will each have your own memories of that moment, but having a video means that every detail of your First Look will be documented on film.

Being able to go back and watch it unfold together in real time is an experience you won't want to miss out on. Plus, you'll be able to share your video with guests via social media, so they can witness your love and relive a joyous memory from your wedding day, too.

Creative Services and Special Effects for Tradeshows, Award Shows and more

From brand activations, tradeshows, and corporate functions of all sizes - Hurricane Productions is comprised of solution-oriented team leaders.

One of our most recent clients asked us to develop a 'show-opener' for an award show. A basketball arena hosted the show - so the effect not only had to 'wow' an audience of over 1,000 people, but it needed to be safe.

After meeting with the client and communicating with fire safety professionals, Nick Nittoli (Director of Operations) presented a special effect that checked all the boxes.

Sparkular - a safe, environmentally-friendly indoor fireworks system - was used under the control of Hurricane to light up the stage as the show's emcee welcomed the guests to the event. Hurricane programmed, synchronized, and safely controlled through Sparkular's fireworks simulator machines.

Unlike typical indoor fireworks, this non-pyrotechnic system is neither hazardous nor explosive. When the Sparkular machine is activated - a specialized powder safely combusts - providing a dazzling firework display.

As an added precaution, Sparkular machines come with an emergency stop tilt function. It automatically stops the fireworks program if the machine is tipped over or tilted more than 45 degrees.

Audi Q5 Launch Event Ray Catena's Casino Night – Freehold, NJ

If you really want to make an impression when you're unveiling a new product to the world, you introduce it with an unforgettable launch event.

That's exactly what Ray Catena – Audi in Freehold, NJ did on April 20 to celebrate the launch of the new Audi Q5. With the help of Hurricane Productions and MediaCutlet, the dealership transformed from a car showroom to a spectacular casino, complete with games tables, live entertainment, and even aerial acrobatics. Game tables provided by A1 Casino Party.

Vincent Velasquez and Strato Doumanis, co-founders of Hurricane and MediaCutlet, produced Audi Casino Night, and brought together the unique talents and assets of each company to make the event one to remember for staff and patrons of the dealership. The team built what they called the "Hurricane Canopy," a large structure that allowed Hurricane's lighting director Nick Nittoli to hook up purple full ballroom uplighting, strobe lights and CO2 jets for a club-style haze effect. On one wall of the dealership, Strato coordinated projection mapping to create a lit-up, electric environment like one might find in Las Vegas or Atlantic City.

"We projected the Audi logo, the Q5 launch commercial, and just some other animations and effects to make this place really come alive and look like a casino," said Strato in a behind-the-scenes MediaCutlet video.

There was no shortage of entertainment during the event. In keeping with the casino theme, attendees could choose from casino-style games like blackjack, roulette and craps. Hurricane DJ Alvin kept the music going in between sets of the live band that played throughout the evening, while an aerial silk performance artist wowed the crowd.

The media team at MediaCutlet made sure the event was well-documented. In addition to capturing on-the-ground video, MediaCutlet flew a DJI Mavic Pro drone for great footage inside and outside the dealership.
