Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Mondays everyone! I’m getting to that point in my life where weddings are not just something that I seek out on my own because I love them. I’m getting to this age where it starts to become my entire newsfeed. I mean, I don’t hate it though. My manager once told me that people love seeing these stories pop up and that’s why when someone gets into a relationship or gets engaged or married, they have a gazillion likes and are always at the top of your newsfeed as a top story.

Today’s Monday has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions so if you’re looking for something that might make you tear up a bit, this wedding video will most likely be IT. I’ve never been a huge fan of speeches at weddings because sometimes I don’t find them funny or I just think they drag on a bit. When my friend got married this past month, her younger sister made an amazing toast and this one reminded me of that.

A Weekend of Documentaries

We had a very lazy Saturday last weekend and while we only had planned to watch one movie, we ended up watching two documentaries back to back. Blackfish is a documentary that I had been wanting to watch for a long time. I still remember when it first came out and/or was released to Netflix and that’s all anyone was talking about on my newsfeed. I’m not sure why I didn’t take the opportunity to watch it then. It’s probably because I knew that it would always be there when I was ready to watch it. And boy, do you have to be ready to watch something like this.

I had been to  Sea World once as a kid and didn’t think too much of it back then. I felt like it was a zoo with just a ton of water which is essentially what it is. However, watching this film, I felt a little bit scared for not only the orca whales, but also the humans that are constantly at risk when they are working with them. As a spectator at Sea World, you never really view it that way. Watching this was pretty depressing and afterwards, I felt like it took a lot out of me even though it was informative. We made sure that the next documentary we watched was kind of the opposite of this.

One of my brother’s best friends worked on this film last year as an editor and while this may seem biased – I actually think it is one of the best editing jobs I’ve ever seen. I’m such a sucker when it comes to kids and I knew I was planning on watching this documentary for a long time, but someone else needed a little bit more convincing. “I don’t really want to watch a movie about golf” “I don’t know anything about it.” But really, we’re not watching the film because we like golf or know anything about it. We’re watching it because these kids are amazingly talented and also because of the relationships they have with their parents. It’s pretty interesting to observe. While I’ve never been much of an athlete or a competitive person, I felt like I related with Amari who is a 7-year old in this movie who constantly beats herself up when she makes a mistake. I might not like competing with others, but I definitely can relate to competing with myself and know that feeling all too well. She’s also got the most sass out of all these kids, but really all of them are pretty great.

This or That: The Blogger Pose

 

I didn’t know it at the time when I was taking this shot, but I was totally following in the footsteps of my blogging icon Joy Cho of Oh Joy! 

It has been several years since I read her blog for the first time, but I am still such a huge fan of hers and her daughter Ruby of course! I also had the pleasure of meeting Joy last year at Anthropologie in Seattle when she was helping them launch their Petites collection. Joy really is such a great role model for women everywhere and I’m having a great time enjoying reading Blog Inc. Even though I’ve been doing this for some time, everything that I’ve learned, I’ve learned by doing and by intuition so it’s refreshing to really dig in and learn from an expert!

oh joy

Wedding Mondays

Today we’ve got a Wedding Mondays / Song of the Day feature because the wedding we’re showing today belong to none othre than the lovely Kina Grannis. She decided to turn her wedding video into the music video for her song “My Dear” and we are loving all of the highlights including the 8mm footage throughout. The wedding music video actually was released on her first anniversary to her husband so it’s kind of sweet that she’s sharing this with all of her fans one year later.

 

Happy Monday y’all and a very happy birthday to my bestest Ashley! This Wedding Monday and most Wedding Mondays are dedicated to her!

Photo of the Day:

Since we already had a “Photo of the Day” yesterday, we decided to push back this sweet sweet moment (so we can remember that the Seahawks won yesterday) of Deshawn Shead proposing to his girlfriend on the field after we beat Denver.

YES.

Hai Richard Sherman.

Rock Stars Before and After a Performance

When I was more involved with music back in the day, I was used to seeing this sweaty transformation as seen above. It’s funny because you go into a show and you’re standing next to a gaggle of groupies oggling the musicians – the whole time I’m just thinking – seriously, just wait until you see them afterwards. It ain’t pretty. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed seeing this photo series entitled “Before/After” done by music photographer Brandon Anderson. I also think it’s quite interesting to see the comparison of both a soft and hard look that is visible in the before and after shots. In the before, the musicians look calm and at ease with themselves while the after shots show the musicians looking very hard and rugged.

Super Fun Day w/ Karlie Kloss

We’ve pretty much adored supermodel Karlie Kloss long before she was given the title of Taylor Swift’s bff and here’s why! I actually found this video to be quite cheeky and I can imagine that this is probably exactly how she is in real life.

And A Good Night

I’m really glad that I never run into the problem of having a shortage of blogging content. I’m still catching up news that I missed from my vacation and the “Apparently” kid is one that I am particularly enjoying.

Ellen is the greatest daytime talkshow host and kids like Noah Ritter are just the best.

Dudes in Startup Shirts

So it’s not the best looking Tumblr, but how Silicon Valley of them anyways…

Can we include some females in this though too? We also wear startup shirts if you didn’t know.

Wedding Mondays

Readers, I hope you all had the loveliest Monday! I took my first mini vacation in a very long time this past week and returned home to Seattle for some wedding fun and a whole five days of sunshine! Can you believe it? It’s usually around this time that Seattle starts to get a little bit colder, but as soon as I got back, I quickly realized that I wasn’t going to need the Uniqlo down vest that I had packed with me. So after attending that wedding myself, I would say I’m definitely in this little spirit of love today and am pretty excited to share with you this video. Now, this one has a more serious tone to it, but as a video that I can resonate with given that I’ve attended a couple of traditional Vietnamese weddings in my day… (In my day… I’m not that old, I just really wanted to say that.)

MTV’s “No Cameras Allowed”

I’m totally interested in watching this. MTV just made a documentary about a guy who has been sneaking into major music festivals and capturing his entire experience. You can watch the full documentary here. And I’ll probably watch this when I have time next!

Wedding Mondays

She’s a contributing editor for Vogue and he’s a Dutch shoe designer so there’s no way that this wedding wasn’t going to be the most extravagant thing you’ve ever seen. Actually just looking at their wedding photos kind of looks like they are on the set of a shoot. The best shoot ever. The gorgeous wedding took place in Italy and invitees included style icons like Oliva Palermo and Christie Brinkley. Her bridesmaids’ dresses – can we just own this for every day use?

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!
