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.

Mike Boyd Wins At 2016

Honestly, what have I have been doing with my year?! This guy Mike learned all these skills in 2016 and the best thing I learned is something so unmemorable that I don’t even know what to write to finish this sentence.

Obama, We’ll Miss You

We hate goodbyes and this is one where we wish we didn’t have to! Over the years, President Obama’s photographer, Pete Souza has captured more than 2 million moments over two terms. These iconic photos have both made me laugh and left me speechless. It’s one of the toughest jobs in America and it has completely aged President Obama – though no one is surprised by that either. There has been a number of publications that have highlighted some of their favorite photos by Souza and here are some of ours as well as their sources so that you can view them all.

Gelesia’s Wedding Featured

Today was a BIG day for my friends and their weddings. Not only did Mandi share her wedding video with the world, but Gelesia’s wedding was also featured on Desiree Hartsock’s blog! (for those of you who are Bachelor and Bachelorette fans out there, you know who Desiree is!) In 2016, my two dearest friends had two amazing weddings and I’m so happy that I was able to be there for their special day.

Gelesia’s Ojai wedding was something of a dream – very pretty, romantic, and so very detailed. It was completely *her* What I love about G’s wedding is also how much time and effort she spent into a lot of the details ie) crafting the details of her table set up, making her bridesmaids’ skirts, etc. All of these amazing details were captured wonderfully by her talented photographer, Katie Pritchard, who we love and often see featured over at Green Wedding Shoes. I’ve picked just a couple of photos to give you a sneak peak, but you’ll want to click on over to the feature on the blog for much more!

Wedding Mondays

I can’t believe we are finally getting to share this. It feels like I’ve been asking Mandi nearly every week since she got back from her honeymoon if the wedding video was ready yet. “Did you get it?” “Did they send it back?” “When is it coming?” I don’t want to say that we’ve been waiting for this day forever because we’ve been saying that about her and Eric’s wedding all along, but the wedding video is a close second!

Mandi and I haven’t had a chance to write about the wedding day yet (but we will!) but one reason why this wedding video is so special to us is – okay – scratch that I can’t speak for her – one reason it is important to me is because this entire day and weekend was so beautiful. I remember getting back from the wedding, not wanting to be back at work, and telling all of my colleagues just how amazing it was to be there with them in Yosemite. And as much as I could go on and on about, the pictures that I took (which weren’t a lot) are nothing in comparison to this video right here.

Also, for as long as I’ve been friends with Mandi, she has always known about Wedding Mondays. We talk about wedding videos all the time – the ones that I post, the ones of people we know who also get married and have wedding videos. When she chose Grimace, I had no doubts at all that this wouldn’t be something incredible. I’m not just saying that because Mandi is one of my closest friends. In fact, I posted about Grimace before she even chose them as a vendor so when she announced to me that they were the one – it was a perfect fit. The videography is so good. The drone wasn’t overkill. The music – just what we needed and the transitions – ohhhhh the transitions! Every detailed that I wanted to see made the cut. I could go on and on about this wedding video, but I want to stop typing and let you watch now.

Thank you so much to Mandi for sharing with us her wedding journey and also her wedding video.

 

*also hi! I made my very first wedding video debut.
