Wedding Mondays

I think I love this video because it’s not like anything I’ve ever seen before. Readers, would you be happy, upset, or relieved if your wedding were a complete surprise?! A part of me would find this gesture really sweet, but 95% of me would’ve really wanted to have a wedding that was all my own and one where both my partner and I could plan. Despite my own opinions, I absolutely loved this video. It sounded like the bride planning her own wedding was more stressful than fun so it’s great to see that those closest to her were able to step in and pull off the ultimate surprise.

What a qt couple. Their vows were too much!

Wedding Mondays

Happy happy Monday morning everyone! I have to start out by saying that I have a major crush on this wedding from Kristen and Andrew and after watching it, I think you’ll see why.

A few years ago I decided to swear off speeches at my future wedding. The majority of weddings that I’ve ever been to (within the family) didn’t ever include speeches and then the weddings that I did attend that weren’t in the family had speeches that just seemed to drag and drag and drag. I remember when I made this announcement, Veronica said to me – “WHAT! But I’m going to be the one to give the speech at your wedding!” What Veronica says goes so she’s my exception. :) But actually I really enjoy watching videos where I get to see a speech done well and this touching one by Kristen’s father – it tugs at your heart strings in all the right ways. Also bonus points to the officient because he did a great job too!

Soppy Pt. 2

I can’t believe that it was back in 2013 that I wrote about Soppy for the first time. It feels like just yesterday that I was falling in love with these illustrations of a real-life couple turned cartoon as they venture into moving into together for the first time and fall in love. Well, a year and a half has gone by and the comic has spiraled into a book that was just published back in December. So cute – someone get this for my birthday pls. Comic artist Philippa Rice captures all of those precious little moments that couples in real life know to be so so true of themselves – choosing what to have for dinner that night, who owns what side of the bed, and brushing your teeth side by side. Swoon, right? Trust – you’re going to want to click for more.

Wedding Mondays

So this wedding video had me at Lord Huron and from there things could only get better and better. Set in Normandy, France, this couple threw a stunner of a wedding. It’s hard to pick a favorite element from this because everything kind of happens at once – the lace dress, the floral headpieces, and oh my gosh – that first look. I’m not even sure when the first look became a wedding trend, but it is so much better than that old rule of you can’t see your partner until you walk down the aisle. But… you know me, I’m not one for traditions anyways.

So this venue is the prettiest thing we’ve ever seen. To view the entire wedding feature, click here to see everything at Green Wedding Shoes!

“After Us”

I read a blog called Doobybrain every day and every so often they highlight Wong Fu Production short videos and they’ve always been so so good. “After Us” definitely hits close to home. It reminds me of my own breakups, but also the type of rebuilding after a breakup that we all go through and that I’ve even seen through my own friends and those closest to me. I thought this was very well done.

And after watching the actual video, watch the behind the scenes for how it was all done.

Wedding Mondays

We’re on a roll today! I just love days off and I love being able to highlight a Wedding Mondays for you all. Today’s feature is a – wait for it – Star Wars themed wedding! So before you bite my head off, I have to admit that I have never actually seen a Star Wars film. Ever. And I have had plenty of reservations around themed weddings especially ones revolving around films, but this one was jaw-dropping stunning. I’ve included some of my favorite photos below!

A Disney-fied Valentine’s Day Present

This would’ve been the perfect post to cap off Valentine’s Day week, but I’ve been out and about this weekend that I forgot to write it! I may be a couple days late, but it’s still worth the read. One lucky girl got the sweetest Valentine’s Day present from her boyfriend this week and I’m sure girls all over the world are wondering why their own boyfriends didn’t think of this creative idea.

Brian Flynn surprised his girlfriend Manini with a collection of the two of them AS Disney characters! Brian brought on artist Dylan Bonner to not only turn his girlfriend into a Disney princess, but to turn him into her prince. The couple “LOVE Disney movies” and he “[wanted] our relationship to be as epic and timeless as the animations we grew up on.”

AWWW. Stop it.

Bonner’s paintings really look like the real thing and completely out of a Disney movie.

Justin Baldoni’s Adorable Baby Announcement

I don’t know about any of you, but I’ve been completely hooked on Jane the Virgin since the show started. One of the lead actors on the series, Justin Baldoni, just announced that him and his wife Emily are expecting and they did it in the most adorable way possible. Since it’s Valentine’s Day and the love is strong and apparent from this video, we’re still going along with our Valentine’s Day week theme. If this doesn’t at least make you tear up a little bit, then I’m all out of ideas!

I’m looking forward to the day when I learn one of my best friends is expecting. Tears. For days.

PS: At the very end of the video, Emily and Justin learn the gender of their baby, but they’re deciding to keep that part to themselves for now!

Vogue’s Love Stories

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day Week, love is pretty much on everyone’s mind. For me, a little bit more than the average person probably, but only because I just love love. I wanted to try and do a Valentine’s Day inspired post every day this week, but then I decided that I didn’t want to put that much pressure on myself. However, if there’s something that I find, that I feel like sharing, I’ll go ahead and do so. Basically, we’re doing what we’ve always been doing. I discovered today that Vogue has been hosting a series called “Love Stories” and publishing a new story every day up until Valentine’s Day. Don’t worry, it’s not all sunshines and rainbows, but that’s just life isn’t it? Sometimes even the greatest kind of love will end up hurting you big or small, but I think in the end, the most rewarding thing is the lessons you take away from it and they’re coming out in these stories that others have shared. I’m currently waching The Bachelor though and finding that I’m really enjoying these short stories during the commercial breaks.

Wedding Mondays

We’ve been on a really good streak of posting this weekend! This is mostly because I had to stay in from having a pretty nasty cold. I know we’ve skimped on Wedding Mondays for the past couple of weeks, but on the week of Valentine’s Day? That’s just unacceptable. I stumbled across this sweet proposal video this weekend and I knew that it was the perfect one to kick off this week right.

Dave + LJ, we can’t wait to see your actual wedding video someday!

Wedding Mondays

Every Sunday, I spend a small chunk of my day catching up on the wedding videos from the week so that I have something for you on Monday. Prior to any video watching though, I met up with a friend this morning for brunch – a friend of mine who just happens to be on the road to getting engaged. And wow, I couldn’t be happier for her! There was never any doubt in my mind that they wouldn’t end up together and I think the reason why everyone already feels like this is the right thing for them is because we kind of already consider them married. During our chat we must’ve covered everything under the sun – her relationship, my relationships, what it means to settle, and how so many people can be the same age, but be at varying stages in their lives. At one point, she looked at me and just said, “I can’t wait for you to have what we have. You deserve it.” Andddd what happened next was that my eyes welled up and I cried, “I want that too!” Sometimes we forget that we’re in public places, but the best friends to have are the ones that will talk to you about anything  – no matter where you are. I’m pretty lucky to have her.

So long story short, watching wedding videos today was a little bit more emotionally charged than usual. I was hooked on Leah and Mikey’s wedding the minute I heard the song. I hadn’t heard it before, but sometimes when you know, you know. I had to keep watching. I had to finish this video and I just knew that there was no part of it that was going to disappoint me.

First off, I love videos by Flora + Fauna. Secondly, how gorgeous is this J. Mendel gown? I am really hoping you all love this video as much as I do! For the full wedding feature, view it here at Green Wedding Shoes.

Coffee Meets Bagel on Shark Tank

While I’ve never used Coffee Meets Bagel, I do have lots of friends in the Bay Area that have given it a shot. I’ve heard mixed reviews. Some people have gotten dates out of it, but not any long lasting relationships resulting just yet. I’ve also heard of people getting matches that tend to always look alike. The founders of the app, who also happen to be three sisters, went on Shark Tank and watching them was sooooo uncomfortable. Them speaking in unison reminds me of robots.
