Dexters Inn, Sunapee, New Hampshire

Welcome to our blog, babes! Today, we’re digging into the nostalgic world of Super 8 wedding films and how we captured Mel and Ryan’s fall wedding at the Dexters Inn in Sunapee, New Hampshire that was unforgettable. Picture cozy vibes, vibrant autumn hues, and a love story captured in the most candid and timeless way possible. Super 8 is close to my and Javi’s hearts as it plays a super important part in our love story and evolved into one of our favorite packages in our business that our couples swoon over! Keep scrollin’ to find out more!



Nostalgic Charm of Super 8 Film

Let’s start with the star of the show: Super 8 film. Imagine an old-school vibe with warm, vintage aesthetics that will transport you back in time. The flicker, grain, and color palette of the Super 8 film brought out the nostalgia and romance like no other. It’s like watching your own love story unfold on the big screen but with that extra touch of authenticity and charm. As I said, Super 8 holds a very special place in our hearts. We launched our Motion Picture film packages after filming our own wedding in Super 8. Yes, Javi and I took turns with our handy dandy Super 8 camera and filmed each other.

When I first met Javi, he was actually creating and filming music videos with Super 8 film, and we spent a lot of time in the darkroom hand processing the film. It was during this time that we fell in love with the unique beauty and warmth of Super 8. It felt only fitting that our love was captured on Super 8 on our wedding day, and now we are thrilled to offer that same unique experience to our couples.

Capturing Ryan & Mel’s Fall Wedding at Dexter’s Inn

Meet Ryan and Mel, whose love story began with a first date to the Black Cow in Greenfield. When they got back home, they cuddled up and watched “American Ride.” Mel, thinking it was all about bikes, was less than thrilled. But then, to her surprise, it turned out to be a history show! Mel’s historical knowledge impressed Ryan, and they bonded over their shared interest. Who knew a history show could be the beginning of a love story?

Fast forward to their fall wedding at the Dexter Inn, and cue the Super 8 film. The rustic elegance and vibrant colors of the season looked insane with the vintage Super 8 vibes. Look at these shots of Mel in her gorgeous gown and Ryan in his tux popping against the lush greenery. I was seriously dying about how beautiful the film was looking against the venue’s rich tones. We feel incredibly lucky to have been hired by not only such close friends but also a fellow wedding vendor who loves film as much as we do! Mel is one of my best friends and I was so emotional watching her say I do, It was such an honor being able to capture this day for her.

Kind Words from Mel and Ryan

“Dominique and Javi are phenomenal. My husband and I hired them to shoot super8 for our wedding and it was the best money we spent at our wedding. Not only was communication perfect but they put such special touches on our day that went above and beyond their duties as videographers. Dominique put together the most BEAUTIFUL flat lay with all our details, even bringing special pieces to use that went with our theme. It’s a LITERAL work of art. Day of the wedding they were early. Javi is so great at capturing the candid moments my husband forgot he was even in the room with him and the guys! He was so excited to see the moments he had no idea were captured when we watched our film. For our film they made a special Spotify Playlist to go along with our video from songs we played at our wedding. It was awesome. They were professional and fun day of. Delivery was FAST!!! Everyone LOVED watching our super8 and its so timeless and perfect. Plus the colors are DOPE. I couldn’t recommend these two humans more. The attention to detail, gorgeous finished product and phenomenal delivery times really just make them the best in the biz.”
