Casting JonBenet

JonBenet Ramsey and I were the same age so when the story broke out about her death, I was really too young to process it. To this day, even though there was sort of closure, there wasn’t really. People are still making documentaries about it and sharing their theories so naturally, this is one of those cases that I also never let go. I’m still very fascinated by all of it and often wonder what JonBenet’s life would have been like today had this not happened to her and why it seems like everyone close to her involved was let off the hook. This trailer was incredibly haunting to me, but still captivating enough that I might log into my Netflix account (which I do less than a handful of times a year) to watch this when it premiers on April 28th.

Wedding Mondays

Happy Monday morning everyone! Catching up on wedding videos yesterday, I really only had less than a handful to watch. It seems like some of my favorite wedding blogs didn’t highlight very many last week, but luckily I had this one in my back pocket from two weeks ago. Today, we’re highlighting a desert wedding video from Samantha and Joe, who just happens to be a part of Fitz and the Tantrums! Mandi and I have been talking about this trend of desert weddings lately and while it sort of seems to be played out, I’m still actually very much in love with the idea! It wouldn’t necessarily be my first choice and deserts don’t have much of a personal value to me, but I do like how secluded it can be and how its still outdoors, but still very very pretty. Desert shots just look really good to me. I mean, just peep some of the photos I’ve included below!

Wedding Mondays

Good morning everyone! Well, after that Oscars fiasco last night, I think we all need something that will distract us from remembering how awkward and embarrassing that was for all involved. I’m excited to share with you this morning a wedding video that Ashley and I got to pick out together while she was visiting last weekend. It’s a long one at 14:43, but as always, it’s worth the watch. Ashley and I were watching this between commercial breaks of The Walking Dead last Sunday so I think if you have a chance to watch it from beginning to end, you’ll be able to appreciate it more than we could. What we loved about this video was that every moment highlighted had a purpose. There’s a reason for it being 14:43! Longer wedding videos also give you a chance to really get to know the couple and every facet of their personality, which can’t be said for a lot of wedding videos most of the time. There’s a lot of love in this as well as joy, laughter, and fun. We hope you’ll enjoy the video as much as we did! Also here are a few of my favorite shots and if you’d like to see more, just head on over to Green Wedding Shoes afterwards.

We sort of have a crush on desert weddings lately!

Wedding Mondays

We rarely do proposal videos on Wedding Mondays over an actual wedding video, but we’ve always been huge fans of Jenn Im and we couldn’t not share this. Jen and Ben have been together for quite some time now and in this proposal video, Ben talks about their relationship and all of the behind-the-scenes planning leading up to the actual proposal. Naturally, Jen is very surprised and the video ends with an engagement! The video is longer than our standard wedding video, but it’s totally worth the watch. We are not embarrassed to admit that we definitely teared up somewhere… in the middle. (I didn’t want to spoil it for you!)

Wedding Mondays

Okay, now I’m definitely convinced that my new favorite wedding videos are ones that highlight the outdoors. There’s no way that didn’t start with Mandi and Eric’s. I may have grown up in Washington, but the most “outdoorsy” my family ever got was a trip to Snoqualmie Falls when I was five years old. I’ve lived near the most gorgeous sights and views for the majority of my life, but never took advantage of them. And now that I’ve seen them in photographs and wedding videos, all I want to do is see them in real life. Doesn’t this wedding video kind of look like a music video? The couple are so edgy and we basically want to be them in real life, but will never be cool enough.

Wedding Mondays

Every week, I’m excited to share a new wedding video with you, but it’s not every day that someone you don’t know actually accepts a recommendation from you for a vendor. My coworker, Vo, and I had had this conversation months ago. In fact, it felt much longer than that because when he brought this up to me, I had nearly forgotten about it entirely. Often times, my coworkers will come up to me at work and just starting talking to me about wedding ideas. Of course, this is not something that bothers me. In this instance, Vo’s girlfriend’s sister was engaged and looking for a wedding video vendor. At the top of my head, my first thought was Sharkpig. Many of my favorite bloggers have used them as a vendor and they’re famously known for their Super 8mm film. I didn’t think anything would actually come of it, but just a couple weeks ago, Vo sent their wedding video along to me and it was indeed, Sharkpig! Unfortunately, we don’t have any extra photos or a wedding feature to share with you this time, but I’m excited for you to see this video. It is full of love, excitement, and fun. Once again, Sharkpig continues to impress us and delivered on an awesome vid. To watch, click here!

Wedding Mondays

I’ve always loved a scenic outdoorsy wedding in videos. How can you not? However, I didn’t have my true appreciation for them until I went to Mandi and Eric’s wedding in Yosemite. Those views and that peaceful quiet… they are so breathtaking, you’ll never ever forget what that’s like. Watching this video reminded me a lot of Mandi and Eric’s and it was so beautiful to watch. I know that all of you will enjoy this as much as I did. The wedding video has the recipe for all things that we’re loving in 2016 / 2017 wedding videos – the long sleeved wedding dress, the flower crown (which we still aren’t over!) and our favorite DIY details that are not overplayed.

Seriously, how sweet are these two?

It was so hard to pick my favorite 3; I think I had 10! Please go check out the entire feature on Green Wedding Shoes – it’s so worth it!

Michelle Obama’s Final White House Speech

Ugly cries all around. Michelle Obama is such an amazing human being. I could not have imagined a better person to be our First Lady for the last 8 years.

Wedding Mondays

We haven’t been to an international wedding yet, but I got a whole lot of life ahead of me and I’m willing to bet that one of my friends will be having a wedding abroad at some point. Last week, I watched this one from Tiffany and PJ in Morocco and it would have been impossible for us to NOT fall in love with it. Inspired by Arabian Nights, this wedding took place in a beautiful desert setting with the most gorgeous backdrop. The bride is a fashion stylist in real life so her impeccable taste is sprinkled all OVER this wedding.

A Collection Part 46

I always seem to have the most time to blog around the holidays, but it just so happens that I like being able to post for “A Collection” during this time too. We last did this post about 6 months ago so all of today’s photos are ones that I’ve been collecting and saving since then. Here’s hoping that these photographs tickle you, inspire you, or spark some kind of emotion within you the same way they do to us. Happy New Year! We’re excited for you 2017.
