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.

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.

The Slap

My pal Jackson sent me this because he obviously knew that I would like it and post to Yow Yow! It’s kind of its own parody on that video that was released a few months ago called “First Kiss.” Do you all remember all of the words I had to say on that?! The video we’re watching is one that I’m responding to a little bit better. It’s more light-hearted and I’m not seeing it all over my Facebook newsfeed with people remarking that is the most inspiring thing they’ve ever seen.

It’s just a silly video so let’s just stick with that.

Good morning everyone! I’m extremely thrilled to be sharing with you a video of a couple that got married at such a romantic estate in Northern California – the Kohl Mansion. The video highlights some beautiful details from it, but you’ll also want to take a look at the photographs from the Style Me Pretty feature here.

The Blind Leading the Blind via IMBOYCRAZY

I am usually months behind on posts by IMBOYCRAZY, but her “Blind Leading the Blind” series is by far one of my favorite things to read across almost all of the blogs I follow. Yes, her website would be deemed “inappropriate” by my parents, but that’s entertaining writing for you, right? Actually this Blind Leading the Blind post was one of the less racier ones I’ve seen, but even still – I’m sure people can find themselves offended by it. Alexi Wasser actually writes all of the posts in this series, but this one time she decided to let her friend Jarrett Grode write it up and it’s a pretty enjoyable read. What I love about this series is that Alexi basically says all the things we can’t come to terms with ourselves even though we’re totally thinking it or are guilty of doing these things. Yes, I am guilty. So what. So are you.

The Blind Leading The Blind (by Jarrett Grode):

 1. Texting “here!” instead of calling when you’re outside to pick me up is just bizarre. If you want to avoid speaking to me that badly, don’t give me a ride.

 2. You sound weak when you say “my dog loves me unconditionally.”

 3. If your Facebook profile picture is anything other than a picture of you, it’s like saying you’re not interested in having sex with anyone on the site or couldn’t if you tried.

 4. Here’s a mnemonic device so you don’t embarrass yourself by confusing astronomy and astrology: ASTRONomy ASTRONaut ASTROLogy IS NOT SCIENCE.

 5. It’s okay when I call it the Jew York Times but you have to say Jewish.

 6. Play it safe: NEVER TEXT DRUG DEALS without writing “jk” at the end.

 7. An easy way to accurately determine someone’s height is ask then subtract an inch.

 8. Don’t look down at people who try to meet people online. You’re online right now.

 9. If you think Mad Men is boring DON’T ADMIT IT. (It means you’re stupid.)

 10. If you want to possess the single most attractive quality anyone can have, be passionate about working hard at something you love doing. This will allow you to afford your own place, which is the single most attractive quality anyone can have.

Wedding Mondays

I typically watch all of the wedding videos that I’ve missed from the week on Sunday evening. Last night, this was the first video I watched and from the start I just knew it was going to be one that I was going to love. The best part about destination weddings is that you’re inviting your friends and family to fly somewhere to celebrate with you for more than just a day! In this case, Ali and Zach had a whole wedding week in Tuscany. It’s hard to capture everything in a week, but I think the filmmakers did a pretty good job because they’ve packed all of the most important aspects into this 11 minute video for us. There aren’t very many photos from the Style Me Pretty feature because the couple is trying to get them shopped for a US magazine, but you can read all about the juicy details from the big event here.

Happy Monday morning everyone! I’m really excited to share this wedding with all of you today for mostly one reason – this couple is from the Pacific Northwest!  I mean additionally, they’ve also got a pretty great video and charming details that helped make their special day one to remember. Also I’m always a sucker for crying groom. Who isn’t?

Wedding Mondays

I haven’t spent too much time toying with the idea of a destination wedding, but Amy and Michele have made it look flawless. With a destination wedding, I feel like you have the added task of not only planning your perfect day, but getting all of your guests there too! However, I’m betting the perks override the stress factors ie) a gorgeous setting and probably an incredible meal that you just couldn’t get in the states.

I absolutely love this romantic wedding video highlighted by Style Me Pretty.

Wedding Mondays

Oh boy, I just went back to the last official “Wedding Mondays” video we had and it was dated April 21st. This is probably the worst job I’ve done, but I promise you it’s not because I haven’t been keeping up with it. In fact, I’ve done such a good job of keeping up with it that we’ve just been throwing out the duds.

Not an excuse. Yow Yow! only wants quality videos.

I’m actually pretty pleased with this one that I’ve found today. I watched the entire video from start to finish without skipping (something else I haven’t done in a long time) and I was able to pick out several things that I loved about it.

  • The Father/Daughter dance
  • A snippet of the Vows
  • The dance floor party
  • Seeing all of the guests

What a great wedding to attend! Let’s hope that this streak of a non-existent Wedding Mondays ends here.
