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.

Salt Lake City Engagement Session

I know we spend a fair amount of time on wedding videos, but I must admit it’s not the only thing I love about weddings. When you consider a wedding, you have to think about all of the aspects that go into it. There are so many little pieces that it makes sense that it takes a year long engagement to get there and all of the decisions along the way. Every once in awhile, I stumble across an engagement shoot that I can’t take my eyes off of or a wedding story that I just have to share. Wedding videos were a start on Yow Yow! but I think over time, we might expand to other details. Hopefully you’ll be on board with us for that too!

I’ve seen so many engagement shoots that emphasize setting and being around scenery and the outdoors. This downtown Salt Lake City shoot strips all of that down. It’s so simple and so perfect.

A Wedding With the Olsen Touch

When I first laid eyes on this wedding, I couldn’t turn away. I scrolled through the number of pictures that there were and when I was done, I thought there would be more. It was a gorgeous wedding with a beautiful bride and groom and oh ya – Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed the bride’s dress!

If you were wondering whether or not the designer twins were making house calls on customized gowns, think again. The bride – Molly – is a longtime friend of theirs so when she became engaged, they were more than a little excited to be creating her dream wedding dress.

Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 Collection

So we don’t have a Wedding Mondays video for you this week. I promise, I tried! I was behind for two weeks on two of my favorite wedding blogs and in those two weeks there weren’t any videos that I was dying to share with you all. I did, however, stumble upon a couple of other wedding posts that we think could be appropriate substitutes.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about how Yow Yow! could transform over the years. There is never a shortage for what I want to do with it and the content. I may be busy with my new job, but I honestly can’t imagine a life without Yow Yow! And I’m really excited to continue on with this. Wedding Mondays is a huge part of what makes this blog and what I love about it is that it is consistent, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dive into other wedding details. Good lord, can you imagine how Yow Yow! will look when wedding moments happen in MY life? – ie) when my friends all start getting married or I become a bridesmaid and can give you a full insider scoop? I can’t wait!

We’re trying something different today. Monique Lhuillier recently released photographs to Green Wedding Shoes on their Spring 2015 collection and while I always thought I loved the very slim looking white dress, I’m starting to be open to new suggestions lately. These gowns are just too stunning to pass on.

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!

Wedding Mondays

I couldn’t wait to get home from work today just so that I could share this video with you all. We missed out on having a Wedding Monday last week, but I think that’s partially because this one was too good. In fact, it’s so good it makes up for two weeks instead of one. There is nothing that I didn’t love about Darren and Yvette’s wedding from the Geronimo balloons, the first look, the sparkly bridesmaids dresses, and of course the groom shedding a few tears. Okay, more than a few. Everything about this wedding is so wonderfully sweet.

Olivia Palermo Marries This Past Weekend

We couldn’t wait for Olivia Palermo to get married and we were sure that it was going to be the wedding of the year – we just didn’t think that it would happen this fast!

This past weekend, Olivia Palermo tied the knot to her longtime boyfriend German model Johannes Huebl in a small civil ceremony in New York. Wearing a simple Cashmere sweater tucked into a tulle skirt over white shorts, Olivia looked like the prettiest bride we’ve ever seen. The couple have been dating since 2008 when they met through mutual friends at a movie screening.

I am completely in love with this look.

Wedding Mondays

Okay so we’re a day late on the Wedding Monday, but at least we’re still having one, right? This week’s featured video is a special one because it highlights the wedding of Bethany Hamilton – the young surfer who lost her arm in a surfing accident years ago. Her “Soul Surfer” story was shared with the world through her film so we’re not only thrilled that we get to view the wedding of an inspiring young woman, but that she’s sharing her special day with everyone else! Her wedding in Kauai is stunning.

Wedding Mondays

Good morning everyone! I’m extremely thrilled to be sharing with you a video of a couple that got married at such a romantic estate in Northern California – the Kohl Mansion. The video highlights some beautiful details from it, but you’ll also want to take a look at the photographs from the Style Me Pretty feature here.

Enjoy!

Wedding Mondays

I typically watch all of the wedding videos that I’ve missed from the week on Sunday evening. Last night, this was the first video I watched and from the start I just knew it was going to be one that I was going to love. The best part about destination weddings is that you’re inviting your friends and family to fly somewhere to celebrate with you for more than just a day! In this case, Ali and Zach had a whole wedding week in Tuscany. It’s hard to capture everything in a week, but I think the filmmakers did a pretty good job because they’ve packed all of the most important aspects into this 11 minute video for us. There aren’t very many photos from the Style Me Pretty feature because the couple is trying to get them shopped for a US magazine, but you can read all about the juicy details from the big event here.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Monday morning everyone! I’m really excited to share this wedding with all of you today for mostly one reason – this couple is from the Pacific Northwest!  I mean additionally, they’ve also got a pretty great video and charming details that helped make their special day one to remember. Also I’m always a sucker for crying groom. Who isn’t?

Wedding Mondays

I haven’t spent too much time toying with the idea of a destination wedding, but Amy and Michele have made it look flawless. With a destination wedding, I feel like you have the added task of not only planning your perfect day, but getting all of your guests there too! However, I’m betting the perks override the stress factors ie) a gorgeous setting and probably an incredible meal that you just couldn’t get in the states.

I absolutely love this romantic wedding video highlighted by Style Me Pretty.

Kimye’s Wedding – The First Photos

So E! revealed the first photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s wedding today and yes, they were as gorgeous as you thought they were be. The very fashionable couple both wore Givenchy as they are pretty close friends with Riccardo Tisci. Kim wore a Givenchy Haute Couture gown while Kanye opted for a custom Givenchy suit.

I know I haven’t seen very many photos, but I think I love the look of her third wedding even more than her second!

Now the big question is…will there or will there not be a televised wedding special on E! I really need to know.

Wedding Mondays

Oh boy, I just went back to the last official “Wedding Mondays” video we had and it was dated April 21st. This is probably the worst job I’ve done, but I promise you it’s not because I haven’t been keeping up with it. In fact, I’ve done such a good job of keeping up with it that we’ve just been throwing out the duds.

Not an excuse. Yow Yow! only wants quality videos.

I’m actually pretty pleased with this one that I’ve found today. I watched the entire video from start to finish without skipping (something else I haven’t done in a long time) and I was able to pick out several things that I loved about it.

  • The Father/Daughter dance
  • A snippet of the Vows
  • The dance floor party
  • Seeing all of the guests

What a great wedding to attend! Let’s hope that this streak of a non-existent Wedding Mondays ends here.
