A Note on Wedding Mondays

We promise we’re not being lazy. Sometimes, there just aren’t any videos that we feel stronly about sharing with all of you and when it comes to Wedding Mondays, we’re not going to skimp.

Not every video is going to make us tear up, but we want it to evoke some kind of feeling and for the past two weeks, none have struck a chord with us. Wedding Mondays will continue, but we can’t promise that they’ll be a wedding video waiting for your here every Monday, but we’ll do our very best to make this happen for you… because we’re happier when we can have a Wedding Monday!

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.

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.

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.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Mondays, everyone! It is most certainly engagment season! Isn’t it always around the holidays? I swear like 3 people from my high school got engaged this week alone and of course Facebook never misses an opportunity to remind me. Over and over again. Don’t get me wrong, I love love. I’m excited for everyone and especially when my own dear friends get into really loving and happy relationships which is exactly why now more than ever, I’m excited about Wedding Mondays. Love is all around so I just keep watching all of these videos.

The video I am sharing today is so lovely because it just isn’t over the top. It’s backed by Frou Frou, which I love and it so sweet without having any dialogue at all. I especially love the gold bridesmaids dresses. To view the rest of this Philadelphia wedding, click here to view the feature at Style Me Pretty!

Wedding Mondays

We’ve been having such great luck with wedding videos lately! Really, it feels good to be making this a part of my routine again and I’m doing my best to just keep an open mind and even mulling over the details a little bit more and not moving too fast. What I love about the video we’re featuring today is that it takes place in Yosemite. It’s actually not too far from where I am, but I’ve still never been and am putting it on my bucket list.

I love everything about this wedding in the forest.

Let’s talk highlights though:

Wedding Mondays

Good morning everyone! There’s nothing like a holiday weekend with family to rejuvenate you and spring you back into a Monday. As tiring as traveling can be (okay, I was on an hour long flight,) I’m feeling more refreshed than ever and ready to end this year on a high note. We’re back on our Wedding Mondays routine and it feels pretty good.

This morning I’m sharing with you all a dream of a wedding video! While I’ve never even been to New York, I’m so envious of all the rooftop weddings that get to take place there. There is nothing more chic than exchanging nuptials at the top of a building as the sun is going down.

Wedding Mondays

There once was a time when we would just have a queue of videos to use for Wedding Mondays and I would be overly excited to be sharing another video with everyone every single week. The feelings haven’t changed. I still love the series and what we’re trying to do every week – but I’ll be honest, the wedding videos aren’t coming as often as they should be or as often as I used to promise. In watching so many of these, there’s a part of me that has become highly critical of what I’m seeing, but it’s important for me to remind myself and even all of you that these videos mean so much more than what we’re seeing. A wedding video captures just a small part of a couple’s relationship and leaves out a couple’s love that we don’t see beyond that video. So yes, we’ve watched quite a few tragic videos in our day, but and even though this is obvious and may not be worth mentioning – every couple’s story is the most beautiful part about a wedding day. Not a video.

With that, I’m happy to share a video that I discovered actually a while back – two months back actually! Becky and Mark are merging two cultures with their wedding day. Their rooftop wedding is absolutly gorgeous and one that I’m sure many people can only dream of. I love how this video provides a background on celebrating their two cultures and bringing them together as one. They did a really great job with this one!

Wedding Mondays

Happy Wedding Monday readers! It has been over a month since we last had one of these, but I knew today that I would be returning with a really great and unique video to share with all of you. My coworker Yelly actually sent this over to me while we were traveling together a few weeks ago in Phoenix for work and I haven’t had the time to post it until now, but I never closed it from my tab. Brian and Mandy from Wyoming love to go out on these grand adventures together so to tie the knot, they decided to hike all the way up to the summit of Pingora Peak.

…the couple and their friend/minister Jamie O’Donnell woke up around 5 am on August 28th, biked 14 miles to the Cirque of the Towers trailhead in Wyoming’s Wind River Range, then embarked on a 24-mile (one-way) hike to 11,884-foot Pingora Peak, where they scaled 9 pitches and 1,200 feet of the northeast face before finally (!) tying the knot on the summit.

I thought the whole video was actually pretty incredible and adorable to watch. It meant a lot to me too that Yelly was able to share this with me and that I could pass it on to all of you!

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.

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!

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.)

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!

Wedding Mondays

It has been awhile since we’ve had a true Wedding Mondays post so today that’s what you’re getting. Swamped by work for these past few weeks, I’ve been playing catch up just getting through all of the weddings that I have missed. After I write this post I need to go back three weeks on Green Wedding Shoes to make sure I’m all caught up! Today’s post is really special because you not only get one video, but you get three! When I first read about this wedding on Style Me Pretty, they were highlighting a choreographed dance that the couple’s friends performed for them at their wedding and that they were a part of. In my head, I think I went – “oh boy, another poorly done choreographed dance from a couple that took maybe 5 weeks of a class for this.” Style Me Pretty teased the video by saying that things were about to get really good, but I didn’t believe it. Until I watched it. And thought it was so good that I had to watch it 3 more times after that.

It really is THAT good. So we’ve got three videos to document Connie and Tyler’s wedding – the choreographed dance, the proposal, and then the wedding  film. I watched it in that order and it was the correct order to watch in order to fall in love with this couple more and more.

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.

Enjoy!
