“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.

Tiffany & Co. Support Same-Sex Marriage w/ New Ad

Tiffany’s is coming out strong in support for same-sex marriage with their newly released advertisement. This is the first time for Tiffany & Co. to ever feature a same sex couple in one of their ad campaigns and it is speaking volumes with the community.

The new campaign, shot by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, showcases seven scenes of couples at different stages of their relationships, with a few twists.

One scene features a same-sex couple about to commit to marriage. The pair, shown sitting on a stoop in New York City, are a real couple, not models, according to a Tiffany spokesperson. Another photo shows a couple getting married with their child at their side.

The photos are a celebration of modern love, creating scenes that show love comes in a variety of forms, spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

“Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear and true love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms,” spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

I have yet to see the other ads that are part of this campaign, but this one is definitely getting the most buzz around the internet currently!

Wedding Tuesdays

Well, this is not how we wanted to start out the year. Don’t worry, this is not going to move to Tuesdays. I really love having Wedding Mondays because even when I was in college, I always thought that it was the best way to kick off the week. For some reason though, it is hard for me to remember to write this post Sunday night/Monday morning before work. We’ve gotta get better at this!

Though sometimes lengthy, I’ll admit that I really love reading and/or hearing the stories of how couples met. No story is ever the same and while I know some couples might not say it, it’s important to remember that no couple is ever perfect. It can be so easy to get carried away with all of these wedding videos. I know I have many times. But personally, I’m not doing myself any favors when I believe that love is something so perfect. We see what we want to see and that’s why these wedding videos come out so perfectly. Sorry, is that depressing/upsetting? We’re just trying to be real here :)

Real talk though – I love this video mostly for the wedding reception. It is absolutely stunning and while it may be a little too fancy schmancy for taste, I still kind of like it. To view the rest of the wedding feature on Style Me Pretty, click here.

How Korean Couples Do PDA

New Year’s Eve is totally a couples holiday, right? I’ve never met a person who was single at the time of New Year’s Eve who has told me that they have loved the holiday. So while it’s New Year’s Eve and all, this post is the most fitting. Americans have varying levels of PDA. Some people are comfortable with it and some people just won’t even go there. Maybe there’s a few people that take it to the extremes too and for those, we like to take pictures and post them because we think it’s funny. In South Korea, you won’t see a lot of the American style PDA that we know of – the kissing and the making out, etc. Instead, you’ll see couples dressing alike to show their affection. In America, sometimes this happens by coincidence, but in South Korea, it’s on purpose. I’m sure to the outside world, it’s a little strange, but I find it to be quite endearing. I don’t think I would ever feel comfortable doing that here in the states, personally, but it’s pretty cute to see a different version of PDA around the world.

Wedding Mondays

Happy winter wedding Mondays y’all! I swear, someone I know has been getting engaged every day since I’ve been home. Aww holiday loveeee. Can always count on Facebook to rub that in to all us single folk!

I actually just watched this video for the first time the other day and loved the whole summer camp vibe of it. The bride and the groom looked so cute together. I love how it looks like they pulled this wedding together without a whole lot of frills and a whole lot of simplicity. Even though I didn’t see the breakdown, it looks like was a real friend and family affair – which is always the best kind – to have the ones closest in your circle helping you out on your big day.
