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!

Love / Make 2015

photo 3

Last Sunday, Mandi and I had a total girls day by attending The Bold Italic’s Love / Make event. It’s basically a hipster wedding expo and from the minute we stepped foot into Terra Gallery in SOMA, we were in love. This may have also been because when we arrived, we were told that we were receiving two free drink tickets!

Earlier in the week, Mandi and I had made plans to get together, but weren’t quite set on the plans yet. When I had heard about Love / Make, I immediately texted her and we had a brief conversation about it:

Me: There’s a wedding expo on Sunday

Her: I know! The Bold Italic.

Me: I mean…we could go

Her: I mean would it be weird…? Becuase like we should if it’s not… We could go for Yow Yow, but really for us.

Me: haha we could go for Yow Yow

Her: Omg let’s go. Who are we kidding?

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!

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!

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!

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!

Song of the Day

Maroon 5 – Sugar

My co-worker asked me yesterday if this music video was staged before I even watched it, but after peeking my curiosity, I obviously had to. And the verdict? Well, it’s not staged actually. They really did crash all of these weddings, but my guess is that there had to be someone in the wedding party or someone close to the bride and groom that knew that this was going to happen. I mean… look at that production! How could you not know? Fun fact though – the director of “Wedding Crashers” also directed this music video. Someone clearly knows what they are doing.

Also, I have not listened to anything else, but this song since yesterday. Maybe we love it more because of the weddings aspect.

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.

Bride Left at Alter Still Had Her Wedding Photos Taken

There are so few things worst than having to call off your own wedding. It has to be one of the worst experiences that anyone could go through, but bride Shelby Swink wasn’t going to this ruin what could’ve been her day. Instead, she still made the day all about her and that’s probably the best outlook that you could have on a situation like this.

Shelby was set to marry her ex-fiance this past fall after being engaged in the spring and spending two whole seasons planning their wedding. They met back in 2011 at the University of Tennessee and after dating for a few years, he had made the decision to move to her hometown of Memphis to be with her. A few days before the ceremony though, he had called the wedding off telling Shelby that he wasn’t in love with her anymore.

When I think of a wedding called off, all that comes to mind is Carrie Bradshaw and all of the wallowing she had done on her honeymoon. It was completely understandable of course, but Shelby had a different approach. She got strapped into her wedding gown, had her bridemaids and parents come dressed up, and together they took some incredible photos.

“I can’t even describe how liberating and cathartic the trash-the-dress experience was for me,” Shelby says. “The moment the paint hit my dress, I was free. I let go of all the hurt and disappointment and became myself again.”

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:

Congrats Amber and Andrew!

Oh my gosh you guys, Ashley (Greek) and Gareth (The Walking Dead and also from Greek) got married last night and their photos are amazing. I know I’ve always said that Seth and Summer were alway my favorite tv and real-life couple, but they just couldn’t last. It’s something that Amber and Andrew managed to do and I’m pretty overjoyed (from someone that doesn’t know them at all) that they’ve decided to make things official by becoming husband and wife. I had a really unhealthy addiction to watching Greek on ABC Family.

The two were married on Friday night at the Carondelet House in Los Angeles.

“I could not imagine a better send-off into the rest of our lives together. Amber was beaming all night,” West, 31, tells PEOPLE. “We were surrounded by so much love.”

Adds Stevens, “It was the most magical night of my life. I wish I could rewind and play it again, but I’m so looking forward to our future together.”

The two met on the set of ABC Family’s “Greek” when Andrew was selected to be Amber’s boyfriend:

“He came in to play my boyfriend on the show. We were introduced by the casting director, and I remember I went back to the hair and makeup room immediately and started Googling him. I was like, ‘Well, that guy was cute!’ ” Stevens, 28, said on Conan in June.

Amber walked down the aisle in a gorgeous CB Couture gown while Andrew donned a J. Crew tux.

Throwback to the time I blogged about their engagment here.
