Wedding Mondays

With Father’s Day being just the day before, we really couldn’t help ourselves by selecting a wedding video that highlighted a touching relationship between a father and a daughter. Ashley and Mike’s wedding looked like a ton of fun for not only them, but all of their guests. Honestly, what’s not to love in this video?

  • Their gifts to each other
  • Speeches from their friends
  • Chinese lanterns
  • Their big reveal and first look
  • Lastly, those Geronimo balloons! MY FAVORITE!

Ugh, I loved all of the elements featured in this wedding video.

Wedding Mondays

We are doing this so last minute! I didn’t think that I was going to have one for today and for a split second even thought that I could just hold it off until next Monday, but then I thought… I have 33 more minutes left and I don’t want to disappoint. I was first drawn to this wedding because of Amanda’s stunning wedding dress from Basix Black Label purchased at Lovely Bride. The details, the long sleeves, and the beading – it’s all a romantic’s dream. Her and Sean seem like a very classic couple and the New York backdrop was a no brainer selection for them. Usually when I’m scrolling through all the pictures of a wedding that I can’t wait to see more of, I usually hold my breath hoping that there’s a wedding video at the end waiting for me. Sure enough, there was. Sean’s daughter intro’ed the video with a touching speech followed by the bride and groom sharing vows and footage of the flawless couple.

I love that Amanda wore her hair up for the ceremony and photos and down for the reception. It’s perfect.

Sassy Dance by 6-Year Old

I’ve been waiting all week to make the time to finally watch this and as expected, it didn’t disappoint. This sassy 6-year old completely owns this number in the best way possible. I feel bad for the two little girls that can’t keep up. :(

Wedding Wednesdays: Hiring a Wedding Planner

IMG_8751

[right after Eric propsed on the Na Pali Coast of Kauai]

After 5 ½ years with my incredible partner, Eric, we’re now blissfully engaged! This means we have to plan a wedding, but where do we even begin? There are endless amounts of wedding blogs, countless Pinterest boards, several wedding expos each year in every city, and hundreds of wedding vendors to comb through when one gets engaged. And let me tell you, you get engaged and almost immediately the questions come pouring in. Did you set a date yet? Where are you going to get married? What are your colors going to be? Are you kidding me people?! I just got engaged six weeks ago. What I can tell you is that we decided to hire a wedding planner and so far we are incredibly happy that we did!

You may be asking yourself, why did we hire a wedding planner? Do we have a limitless budget for our wedding that we can splurge on a planner? Absolutely not. My fiance and I are funding a majority of our wedding independently. What you might not realize about wedding planners is that they can save you a ton of money not to mention save you from becoming bridezilla and spending every night after work emailing vendors.

Ingrid Nilsen Makes An Announcement

Oh my goodness, Ingrid Nilsen is one of my favorite video bloggers. I’ve been watching her videos for the last year and I’ve enjoyed her quirky personality and sense of humor. She also is just such a great role model, but today even moreso because she released a video that was the most important video that she has ever released and the most vulnerable we’ve ever seen her. She came out. And it was emotional and beautiful at the same time. Totally not ashamed to say that I cried mini tears when I saw her crying as well. Ingrid – so proud of you! This is HUGE and welcome to this new chapter of your life!

Also for reference on what some of videos are usually like, watch below!

Wedding Mondays

Wow, I have something really really special to share with you all today. I’ve known quite a few people from high school and college that have gotten married in the last few years, but not all of them have had a wedding video so when someone I know has one, I get very excited! Very recently, a college classmate of mine tied the knot with his fiance (now wife!) Monica and they have an AMAZING wedding video. Justin and Monica got married at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barabara which I’ve always seen featured on wedding blogs and looks even more beautiful in their video than in just photos! I haven’t decided which moment in this video is the sweetest – seeing our friend Anthony tear up while giving his speech or seeing Justin serenade Monica… you can’t hear the song from the wedding video, but in case you were wondering… – it’s Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” We’re hoping Justin will send us the professional video of this if/when it comes out. Another major MAJOR detail that I love about this wedding is Monica’s Lela Rose wedding dress. It’s absolutely stunning, isn’t it?

Justin and I shared a few mutual friends and even worked together very briefly when I was managing another classmate of ours’ singing career during my senior year. Justin backed her up on vocals I think, but mostly accompanied her on guitar. I mean he was a gem and it’s been a few years since I’ve seen him, but in watching this video I just felt so proud of the person he grew up into. Justin and Monica – I’m wishing you both endless years of happiness together and a very loving marriage.

Introducing: Caitlyn Jenner

Today was a HUGE breakthrough for not only the trans community, but for beauty and just owning being yourself. I was getting ready for work this morning when I caught my first glimpse of the Vanity Fair cover and thought that it was flawless. I had heard a rumor a couple days ago that she would be changing her name to Caitlyn Jenner and then that she’d be covering Vanity Fair, but I honestly didn’t think that this would all happen so fast. Nadia and I decided that Caitlyn looks a lot like Bruce mixed with Cindy Crawford (her hair!) and a young Janice Dickinson. I’m really proud that Vanity Fair was able to cover this. It’s so important and I’m really looking forward to reading Caitlyn’s story soon!

A Collection Part 42

For the first time, we are publishing an “A Collection” post and starting the next one immediately. Hopefully, this means that we can have another one posted within the next six months. These are Veronica’s favorite posts and I even texted her this morning to let her know that she could expect it this evening. These posts are so interesting to me because there is usually little to no content. Instead, it’s a post of 50+ images that I’ve collected over 6 months that evoke something out of me. There’s no rhyme or reason. I can’t go through each photo and say why I chose each one. I just know that it’s important to me, that it means something and resonates with me in some way or another. I’ve never actually talked to Veronica about this, but while this doesn’t hold much content, I almost feel like she probably knows what I’m thinking or how I’m feeling through a collection of images. Maybe you all do! You tell me. :)

Wedding Mondays

Every time I see a wedding video that is 14 minutes – even 10 minutes long – I get a little bit nervous. I think to myself, this could either be really really good or bad and if it’s bad, I’ll know so within 45 seconds. Luckily for all of us, the bad never came and I found myself feeling more and more drawn in with every minute. When it ended, I was surprised that it was 14 minutes long because it definitely didn’t feel like it. Wow, Nina and Charlie are one incredible couple. From their impeccable style, their heartfelt vows to each other, and the overall look and feel of the wedding… – we loved everything that we saw. This is one of those wedding videos where you watch it and you say to yourself, “I hope my wedding is something like this.” This venue is actually a dream venue that I would love to have if I chose to have my wedding indoors. I really like that the space is versatile, clean, and spacious and everything can just happen all in one place. No one wants to be driving back and forth from location to location on their wedding day – guests included.

Late At Night I Think About…

Dessert! Boutique ice cream shops are all the rage right now, but I remember way back when I used to beg my Dad to just take me to the local Baskin-Robbins. Those were the DAYS! I watched this video and instantly became hungry. The internet is a dangerous thing sometimes.

The Hundreds Staff Interview: Alina

Every now and then I come across things on the internet about various people and I’m like “Yeah, cool they have traits like me. We have stuff in common” Then I come across this interview of some girl named Alina who I’ve never heard of in my life and I’m like “This girl IS me.”

We don’t look alike, but I’m pretty sure we’ve got the same vocabulary and that we’re the same person.

Doug McKenzie’s Tricks

I’m going to let you all in on a really nerdy secret of mine. I totally have a thing for magic tricks. Don’t get it twisted – I don’t find David Blaine attractive or other magicians, but if you can do magic tricks – I will watch you for hours. I was completely captivated by this video of Doug McKenzie though who has now started to incorporate technology and personal belongings like our phones into his latest tricks.
