The Barn at Flanagan Farm Wedding Film from meg simone on Vimeo.
This Maine Wedding video from The Barn at Flanagan Farm is a lighthearted, uplifting, and entertaining story that will give you a new appreciation for glitter, gold, and good quality family time. The property was the perfect place to bring people together. A quick drive from Portland affords a cozy and inviting setting that allowed the memory making to take place all weekend long. It was an honor to be chosen to film Brea and Scott’s wedding and was an adventure for us knowing Brea on a personal and professional level. This wedding had elements of familiarity, family, friendship, and love, and I think you will feel that inclusiveness as you watch the weekend unfold. Watch out – Brea’s laugh is contagious Thank you Brea and Scott xoxo
As a side note, Brea and I met back in 2009 at a Style Me Pretty Inspiration shoot. We became fast friends having grown up a few towns away from each other. You may recognize her name from many of my other blog posts – she is the talent behind Brea McDonald Photography. A quick look thru my blog you will see a few Nantucket weddings we have done together in addition to her center spreads with WellWed Magazine!

Hingham MA Wedding at Worlds End from meg simone on Vimeo.
What a perfect way to start off the New Year! A heart warming wedding film on a brisk New England morning. It’s hard not to be envious of the bond these sisters have with each other. They are so close knit that they experience mild FOMO – Fear of Missing Out! Gram may steal the show from time to time, but the parallel drawn between her daughters wedding (mother of the bride) and her granddaughters wedding punctuates an underlying theme of family and love. Hingham, boat rides, flag football, and the New York Times… it’s all here!

Willowdale Estate Wedding Film – Topsfield, MA from meg simone on Vimeo.
I must tell you Meg, when we were in the beginning phases of planning our wedding I wasn’t thinking of having a videographer. However, Marc convinced me that it would be a wonderful way to hear the music, watch everyone having a wonderful time, and truly feel the energy of the special day. When watching the film we realized you did much more than this! You captured so many beautiful moments, details, emotions, music, and love…you and Dave were able to delicately string together an incredible special event and take is back there instantly. We especially love the documentary style to brought to the film, which makes it exciting and intriguing to watch! You two even showed us aspects we had missed–such a gift in itself!
The care, time, dedication you put into this film is beyond obvious and we are moved with the end result. I know that we will be watching this for months and years to come! Thank you for giving us the ability to relive our dream wedding. – Nicole
There is such an incredible backstory to this couple which will be revealed throughout the film. On this wedding Safari you will hear hilarious and heartwarming stories and meet fascinating individuals. The humor, the love, the multi-dimensional nature of this group is magical!

As a follow up to the Martha’s Vineyard elopement video post I wanted to share a rare glimpse into our life on the road. Many thanks to Sandra Costello who not only connected me with Brittany and Tony, but for documenting a little of what we do along the way.
Some fun facts: 1) Since this was an elopement, and only 7 people, I decided to wear white! I never wear white to a wedding, but I did wear this top to a few rehearsal dinners this year.
2) I love ferry rides! If you getting married on The Vineyard, Nantucket, or one of the many hidden gems in Boston Harbor or off the Coast of Maine, I’m your gal! Six of the events we covered this summer involved boat rides. Wait until you see the one from Bar Harbor!
3) Don’t mind my outfit… I keep it casual and comfy when I’m on my own filming scenic video clips. My crazy hat keeps sun off my face and I promise not to wear it at your wedding.
4) A little hug with Britts mom. If you watched the film this is right after she told us the story about her mom who was always “sending 11′s.” Brittany was put in Room number 11 at the Hob Knob Inn. We were all a bit choked up. I love “signs” like that. Family is always with us.
