Hello Super 8 Wedding Films and the Hello Guestbook #Stuff we love#guestbook#new york#super 8#video Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Feb 5 2009) Ariel arielmstallings One of my dearest friends in the world, Megan Hill, just launched her new 8mm wedding film company: Hello Super8! I'm a 15-year fan of Megan's visual aesthetic — she designed the invitations and stickers for our wedding and also designed my business cards. And her taste in music? She was one of our wedding DJs! Therefore, you can imagine my excitement to see Megan combine her retro-modern eye and funky-ass musical ear to the world of Super 8 wedding films … and I'm absolutely in love with her concept of the Hello Guestbook. You've got to see for yourself: Although Hello Super 8 is based in New York and London, Megan travels all over for her wedding films … now, would someone in Seattle pleeeeease book her so that I can crash your wedding as her "assistant"?! To see more of Hello Super 8's 8mm wedding film work, keep reading! Ariel Author of three editions of the Offbeat Bride book and the forthcoming From Shitshow To Afterglow, Ariel acts as the publisher of all the Offbeat Empire websites. She lives in Seattle with her son, and if she's not reading or writing books, chances are good that she's dancing or happy-crying. She writes weekly essays for her new publication, The Afterglow.

I just signed a contract with Megan this week! My "6 degrees of OBB" wedding planning continues… Reply Amazing work Megan. Super 8 video is the only thing missing from our otherwise perfect wedding, not that it will make the wedding better, but I'm in love with it. If only we could squeeze it into the budget. Reply So great! That first video was so full of fun-loving fun and love. And the second… I can't talk about it right now because I think I have something in my eye… I'm not crying I just have something in my eye, okay!? 🙂 Reply Gaaaah!! I love it! So cute.
