As much as I love my Weddings and my Wedding Mondays, there are still moments that I can catch that don’t feel genuine to me. Yes, I am a girl that loves watching The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and was I flipping between Catherine and Sean’s 2-hour wedding special last night along with the Grammys? I SURE was. The wedding ceremony itself was probably 30 minutes. While I love the two of them together, I couldn’t help but think to myself while watching that I will never televise my wedding. It’s unlikely that I’ll become a public figure before I get married, but even still – why would anyone choose that route?
Then I started thinking big picture… is this what I am doing when I showcase people’s wedding videos on Wedding Mondays? I thought that for a second until I realized that there are so many details in these videos that get left out and therefore my decision for the series is completely justified. I didn’t need to see Sean buying lingerie for Catherine and I didn’t need to know that Catherine was gifting him with a sexy photo shoot with photos that he could keep. Blagh.
With that said, can we just get on with this? This wedding video of Julie and Eric in Paris is pretty sweet. The whole wedding itself oozes with romanticism and glamour and while it’s not always the route I would take with my own personal wedding, there is such a level of appreciation for the whole thing.
