Dearest Meg..

Here we are one of the most glorious days of my life! I watched again (probably for the 300th time :-), Brooks and Liz’s wedding video as today is their 4th wedding anniversary. How wonderful that day was, and how wonderful to have you there to capture such wonderful, tender and fun moments!

I just wanted to thank you once again, Meg, for shining a light on two people I love most in this world! Each time I watch this wonderful movie you created, I smile, laugh, shed tears, laugh again, and am ever so grateful for that wonderful day and you. You bring alive each and every year, the essence of that wonderful day, friends, family and such love. I am forever grateful. Thank you for capturing the essence of that very special day and the ability to live it time and time again. My best to you, Meg

Always,

RBP (Mother of the Groom)

Lake Winnipesaukee Wedding Film of Brie and John from meg simone on Vimeo.

This stunning Lake Winnipesaukee Wedding was perfectly executed by Mindy Rossignol of Private Weddings and Events.  Creative floral genius Emily Herzig Floral Studio tied together the most fitting blooms for this setting. Not only did The Hinkley’s provide wedding day photography, they did an amazing engagement session and a fun “rock the dress” photo shoot the following day. Entertainment by NRG Entertainment - Catering by A Day to Remember - and Landscaping by Stephens Landscaping, Center Harbor, NH.

“We are so in love with it! From the golf course to the top of the hill across the way you got it all! INCREDIBLE. Everyone says it is the best wedding film they have ever seen. I cannot imagine not having my wedding without you there to capture it. It is so amazing to see things you didn’t notice at the time. Seeing everyones reactions and seeing them have such a good time is the best part. I am not very emotional and I cried the whole time. It is amazing to relive, I wish I could do it again and again. I would have had a huge remorse without that footage, it is so special you have no idea! The vendors all nailed it you are right! Could not have been better! Thank you so much!” – Brie

“I cannot believe what a beautiful wedding video you produced! Everyone who has seen it is telling me it is the best they have ever seen. I want to admit that when she first told me about wanting you to do this I said we didn’t have such a thing when we got married. We are all so happy and it is worth every penny. Not only do you know how to shoot the footage you have such an incredible way of getting people to talk and tell the story. I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work putting it all together. Every time I watch it I notice something else and how it all ties in. Thank you also for the footage of my parents. I realize that they won’t be with us much longer and truly appreciate that we will always have them with us on the film.” – Lauren, Mother of the Bride

Galley Beach Nantucket Wedding Film – “The Tuck” from meg simone on Vimeo.

A timeless and classic seaside celebration at Galley Beach on Nantucket Island with a welcome party at The Nantucket Whaling Museum. A budding romance between the fighting Irish of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College quickly bonds these two lives, friends and family. A Thursday / Friday celebration allowed the guests more time to enjoy “The Tuck.”  I don’t know what was better, their recessional out of the church, the sunset, the Irish step dancing or the toasts :) All images by Brea McDonald Photography.

August Weddings in New England are popular and this year couples had one extra weekend to choose from. There were five Saturdays instead of  the typical four. We started out on Lake Winnipesaukee at Brie and John’s celebration. You can see photos from the event by The Hinkleys, with Emily Herzig Floral Studio, and Mindy Rossignol of Private Weddings and Events. We then pointed the Sportsmobile North to Lincolnville, Maine. I felt like I was living my own Maine Magazine “48 Hours” as the weekends festivities kicked off at Cellardoor Winery.  On my way to film Saturday morning I randomly ran into MacKenzie and Phillip of Ink Spot Crow Films. So great to finally meet them in person. There was a chartered boat ride on Schooner Olad out of Camden, ME followed by a “Bistro Night” singalong in French and English, then the wedding on Sunday working with Amy Wilton Photography at Point Lookout. We had the pleasure of filming Matt Forcier of LMV-Productions wedding at the Wentworth by the Sea, he’s an incredible wedding filmmaker and storyteller, and I was so humbled to document the day for him. No pressure, no pressure! Their photographer was Shannon Cronin, Flowers by Jardiniere Flowers, Hair by Hair That Moves, Makeup by Joya Beauty and The Wedding Belle executed the day. I attended a wedding professional meet and greet at Hardy Farm (thanks Anne Skidmore Photography for the great new action shots! SO much fun!)  From there we went to OceanCliff in Newport and then to Martha’s Vineyard where we had the opportunity to work with Corinna Raznikov (definitely peek at her portfolio – wow!) If I added up all the miles it would be a few thousand. If I added up the smiles it would be a few thousand more. A random Sunday roundevouz on my scooter with the MacDonald sisters, a visit from Mike Novelli of Rising Moon Films in Colorado, Spring Smith’s baby shower, a visit from The Warren’s, breakfast in the Sportsmobile while filming the Newport Bridge. I know I missing stories about my niece, my birthday, the giant zucchini’s, the 5 lbs of butter beans, and 60 cucumbers we have harvested. Maybe between the filming and editing in September I’ll find time for a photo op with the 30 butternut squash that are still on the vine in my back yard. Thanks to Brea McDonald Photography and Trish from Snap! Weddings for allowing Blanca the Sportsmobile to sleep over. She loves to socialize!

wedding film testimonal

It’s always great to hear that couples take the time to watch and share their wedding film with future generations. Reliving the day, the sounds of people, friends, family, special words, spoken vows. There is nothing like it :)
