Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Mondays everyone and happy Labor Day!! Before we get started on talking a little bit about this video we’re featuring today, I wanted to take a second to dedicate today’s Wedding Monday to Heing and Shirley – my brother’s friends that got married yesterday in Seattle! Heing has been a follower of the Wedding Mondays series for some time now and while it is unconfirmed if he ended up having a video or not, we’re crossing our fingers that he did so that we can post it up here!

I absolutely loved Chelsea and Graham’s boho wedding in Maui. I thought that her look was perfect and everything about the ceremony was beautiful, but the tear jerker moment? Chelsea’s speech at the reception. What a strong couple they are. Here’s wishing them a very happy marriage together!

A Collection Part 40

As the years go on, the “A Collection” posts get farther and farther apart from each other! When it comes to the end of summer, I always feel like it’s the most appropriate time to wrap things up. I started this post back in April, can you believe it? It’s about time we got this published!

Goodbye summer. Hello fall! We’re so excited to be in you!

Wedding Mondays

Happy happy Monday everyone! I’ve been itching to share this video ever since I saw the details of Cindy and Chris’s special day on Green Wedding Shoes. Cindy was a gorgeous bride and I adored her dress – something I don’t think I could have ever pulled off myself. However, the best part about this wedding? The couple share a love for all things science and animals and that was very apparent in the theme of their wedding. Now I’ve included the video for you above, but the pictures? Swoon worthy for sure! Here are just a few of my favorite snaps.

The French Laundry Reviewed By the Cutest Four-Year-Old

I don’t have to much context on The French Laundry, but what I do know is that it is a restaurant in San Francisco considered to be a “very big deal.” And by very big deal, I’m sure it means that all of the plates have food on them that will fit in the palm of your hand, the prices are higher than you would ever believe for just a few bites and you have to make a reservations months in advance. Somebody, please clarify this for me if I am wrong.

San Francisco blog The Bold Italic recently had the most darling 4-year old review the restaurant and as you can imagine she had quite a few words to say. The best part of this review though? The photographs of her trying out the dishes for the first time. Apparently this post is well on its way to becoming one of the blog’s most popular posts ever.

Life After A Heroin Overdose

I’ve been watching a number of these videos for the past couple of weeks and boy, are they hard to watch. Alex overdosed on heroin when he was just 17 years old and since then, his mother has become his full-time caretaker. He is 30 years old now and while he’s getting better, it will be a long time for him to be able to fully do things on his own.

Aubrey

Some of my favorite things to watch when I’m on the internet are profiles of other people. I owe Herman Yung of Doobybrain a lot for  that. It has always been refreshing to me to see the way people live in so many different areas of the country and the world. It took me 23 years until I left home and lived somewhere for the first time and I just feel constantly inspired by other people’s adventures. It is one of the reasons why I started blogging in the first place and boy – has this blog not only introduced me to so many people, but it has connected me and others too. Watching this video of Aubrey tell her story about being a colorist at Bumble and Bumble and juggling motherhood at the same time is a reminder of that.

Wedding Mondays

It has been awhile since we’ve had a true Wedding Mondays post so today that’s what you’re getting. Swamped by work for these past few weeks, I’ve been playing catch up just getting through all of the weddings that I have missed. After I write this post I need to go back three weeks on Green Wedding Shoes to make sure I’m all caught up! Today’s post is really special because you not only get one video, but you get three! When I first read about this wedding on Style Me Pretty, they were highlighting a choreographed dance that the couple’s friends performed for them at their wedding and that they were a part of. In my head, I think I went – “oh boy, another poorly done choreographed dance from a couple that took maybe 5 weeks of a class for this.” Style Me Pretty teased the video by saying that things were about to get really good, but I didn’t believe it. Until I watched it. And thought it was so good that I had to watch it 3 more times after that.

It really is THAT good. So we’ve got three videos to document Connie and Tyler’s wedding – the choreographed dance, the proposal, and then the wedding  film. I watched it in that order and it was the correct order to watch in order to fall in love with this couple more and more.

Salt Lake City Engagement Session

I know we spend a fair amount of time on wedding videos, but I must admit it’s not the only thing I love about weddings. When you consider a wedding, you have to think about all of the aspects that go into it. There are so many little pieces that it makes sense that it takes a year long engagement to get there and all of the decisions along the way. Every once in awhile, I stumble across an engagement shoot that I can’t take my eyes off of or a wedding story that I just have to share. Wedding videos were a start on Yow Yow! but I think over time, we might expand to other details. Hopefully you’ll be on board with us for that too!

I’ve seen so many engagement shoots that emphasize setting and being around scenery and the outdoors. This downtown Salt Lake City shoot strips all of that down. It’s so simple and so perfect.

A Wedding With the Olsen Touch

When I first laid eyes on this wedding, I couldn’t turn away. I scrolled through the number of pictures that there were and when I was done, I thought there would be more. It was a gorgeous wedding with a beautiful bride and groom and oh ya – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed the bride’s dress!

If you were wondering whether or not the designer twins were making house calls on customized gowns, think again. The bride – Molly – is a longtime friend of theirs so when she became engaged, they were more than a little excited to be creating her dream wedding dress.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Mondays everyone! I am pretty excited to be sharing this video with you all today because it happens to be a friend of my brother’s friend.

Hey Heing.

Typically, I am never really connected to the people that are in these wedding videos and in this case, I still am not, but that doesn’t change how I feel about what’s happening in them. This sweet wedding video shot in Seattle was done by Rainy Parade Films and it really tug at my heart strings watching it last week and so I decided to save it specifically for this moment.

Enjoy!

Wedding Mondays

I couldn’t wait to get home from work today just so that I could share this video with you all. We missed out on having a Wedding Monday last week, but I think that’s partially because this one was too good. In fact, it’s so good it makes up for two weeks instead of one. There is nothing that I didn’t love about Darren and Yvette’s wedding from the Geronimo balloons, the first look, the sparkly bridesmaids dresses, and of course the groom shedding a few tears. Okay, more than a few. Everything about this wedding is so wonderfully sweet.

Wedding Mondays

Okay so we’re a day late on the Wedding Monday, but at least we’re still having one, right? This week’s featured video is a special one because it highlights the wedding of Bethany Hamilton – the young surfer who lost her arm in a surfing accident years ago. Her “Soul Surfer” story was shared with the world through her film so we’re not only thrilled that we get to view the wedding of an inspiring young woman, but that she’s sharing her special day with everyone else! Her wedding in Kauai is stunning.
