Wedding Mondays

Happy Monday morning everyone! This video is a little different from our last post because this one is an actual wedding video as opposed to a video of an anniversary shoot. This wedding video comes to us from Green Wedding Shoes and features another fashion blogger getting married in Cabo! This video has a lot of fun, humor, and excitement to it so I’m happy to share it with you all this morning.

On another note though, I want to share with you something that I’ve been thinking about lately. We’ve been having our Wedding Mondays series for years… before those in my life were getting married. Often times in the past, I have made subtle comments on my Wedding Mondays posts or Instagram stories about details that I don’t love. Through some of the conversations I have been having lately, I’ve decided that I need to do a better job of expressing more positivity in this area when it comes to these posts and other peoples’ weddings. Just because someone has something in their wedding that may not be my style or something I would not have in mine does not mean that it is wrong. In fact, I am wrong for judging. The reasons why weddings are so special to couples is because it is their own and a reflection of them. The happy couples have enough pressure on themselves already in planning a wedding and they don’t need the rest of the world to comment. I need to set a better example for Wedding Mondays and I hope you all will understand and join me. :)

Wedding Mondays

Mandi and I had a controversial wedding conversation in which we came to an agreement that weddings these days can be… well, a little bit extra! Up until just a few years ago, I didn’t even really consider bridal showers to be a real thing. In fact, I will admit that I totally thought it was a ploy to just receive more gifts. It’s half that, but it’s also a great opportunity for you to have a more sophisticated get together with the women in your life that isn’t necessarily a (what could be) raunchy bachelorette party. For Wedding Mondays, we generally don’t feature many videos that aren’t a wedding video, but today is an exception. I came across an anniversary shoot captured with a video last night and it struck a chord with me. Whether I am married for a year or five years or ten, I very much still want that love to be well and alive. It’s refreshing to see how couples continue to show each other that in different ways. It may not be for everyone and yes, sometimes doing things like this will cost a little “extra,” but it is still a very special sentiment.

Be honest with yourself. You do not hate this.

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!

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.

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!

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.

The Ladies of The Bachelor – Bridal Photoshoot

With the premiere of The Bachelor returning to ABC tomorrow, it only seemed fitting that we would share this photoshoot that the ladies of The Bachelor did in bridal wear from November. No, we haven’t been saving it for this timely moment, but were behind on posts and wanted to save it for a later date. Now, it’s just coincidence! The women looked lovely in neutral shades and we’ve gotta say – we actually appreciate these looks more than the ones they’ve worn on the show because they sometimes are full of glitter and sequins. Here’s hoping that all these beautiful ladies find their prince charming eventually (and hopefully off screen!)

The Bride By Sarah Seven Romantics Collection

We have four weddings already to attend in 2017. I remember when I made this bold statement: I’m never going to pass up any wedding that I get invited to. And there was Mandi next to me saying, “Just you wait and see…!” And it’s true; I declined an invitation recently for a wedding I thought I’d be attending and it broke my heart. The number count is high though and that along with what I think will be 2.5 bachelorette parties, the anxiety of wedding season is VERY real! But that’s not what this post is about. In fact, this post is taking away my anxiety because we get to look at very pretty things – this collection by Sarah Seven that we have fallen in love with.

Oh my goodness, it has been a long time since I’ve stumbled across a wedding video that I have fallen absolutely in love with. Eileen and Brian – what a stunning couple! I felt like I was watching this magnificent vintage wedding film that really pulled me into the setting with them. What I love about this film is that it was a lot more calm than what we’re used to seeing. We all know how much I love those high-energy packed wedding videos, but it’s nice – every once in awhile – to watch one that takes a step back. I found myself really enjoying this and I think you all will too.

We are obsessed. These photos and video are from Branch + Cole.

We have a lot of love in our hearts after being in Seattle for the last week. While I was home, I learned that one of my best friends from college just got engaged! Naturally, you all know that that always makes me a little bit emotional and that getting to share a wedding video for the following Monday makes this so much better. The video we’re sharing today is right up our alley because it’s totally non-traditional and we love it. Lately, I’ve been reading about a lot of weddings through blogs that are tossing out those old-aged and stale traditions. I have such a greater sense of appreciation for couples that can do things that aren’t always by the books and are most true to themselves.

Unrelated, but sort of related – I watched an episode of “Say Yes to the Dress” while I was home and this bride-to-be with electric blue hair just had to have color in her wedding dress, but her very traditional mother wanted her in a white dress. When she tried on a white dress at the request of her mother, she broke down in tears because she just didn’t feel like herself and of course, the mom (seeing her daughter sobbing) still couldn’t see it. SO (this was the best part!) the salespeople at Kleinfeld stepped in and were all “Mom, we’re not going to see a crying bride on our floor so you need to just take a step back and let your daughter do what she wants to do.” Those aren’t the exact words, but I’m pretty close! So whether you have a rainbow colored dress or you opt out of the cake cutting or don’t have a bridal party at all, you should just do what feels right for you and your partner.

Side note / Fun fact – while I was home, I caught up with Veronica who is also newly engaged and she had the chance to show me her amazing and stunning pearl earrings which her and fiance had chosen for her instead of just your standard engagement ring. I had actually never heard of anyone swapping out the engagement ring for another piece instead, but it was SO them to do it this way and it clearly held a lot of sentiment for the both of them.

Every Sunday, I hold my breath a little bit just hoping that there’s going to be a wedding video from the previous week that we can share with everyone. Last Sunday, as I was going through my usual roundup, I was really disappointed to find that there wasn’t even one that I loved. In fact, they didn’t even come close. Luckily for me though, I stumbled upon one last night – and I really needed a good one because I was going to see Jennie today while in Seattle.

What I love about this video even though there’s no dialogue, it looks like you’re watching a perfect film. I love the shots that were captured and her two-part dress and the way they made this wedding very Mexican themed to highlight something that was special to them, but that it took place in Palm Springs! I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a wedding video from Max and Molly Films, but I am VERY excited about them.

Yup, I’m in love with her bridesmaids’ dresses as well. To view the rest of the feature, click here to visit Green Wedding Shoes!

Happy Wedding Mondays everyone! It’s been awhile since we’ve had one of these and I honestly was going to go to bed before scheduling one ahead of time, but then I remembered that every time I have said that on a Monday I usually end up too lazy after a long work day and just heading straight to bed. So we’re going to stick to commitment this time around. I was looking in my queues to see if I even had a wedding video when I saw this one by Lindsey and Saman. But wait – didn’t I already feature this?! Something made me think that I had because I had remembered telling Mandi all about this wedding video from this adorable couple in LA which took place at one amazing venue – Lombardi House. I dug through my archives, but couldn’t find it and then I remembered… this is the Grimace Films wedding video that I fell in love with and Mandi and Eric’s wedding video vendor!

For her most recent post, she had told me that to pick the video that I wanted to use and I seriously considered this one but thought – well I’ve already featured it (but I actually hadn’t!) and ended up choosing the one that I knew that she truly loved.

I love this wedding video for so many reasons. Ugh, the bride! The groom! The venue! The first look! Seriously, what’s not to love? We could go on and on shouting each aspect that we love, but you should probably just watch for yourself.

So we couldn’t figure out how to embed the video into this post. We’ll just lead you straight to it…here!

Just a few words about this video though…

I’ve always said this and I still believe it – the song you use for your video is sometimes all that makes it. You can’t tell me that you watched this video and didn’t feel like dancing along with it. Also, for years we loved up on Sharkpig. This is no different. They’ve really perfected something here and it makes watching their videos all the more enjoyable. With G’s grand California wedding just around the corner, we are getting so so excited for it. I can’t believe I’m seeing one of my favorite girls get married. It’s unreal.

We haven’t featured too many winter weddings recently, but this one is one of our favorites! Winter has never ever been my favorite season. In fact, tbh – it’s my least favorite season, but there’s something really beautiful about snow and winter being so quiet and calm that brings a lot of warmth to a winter wedding. It’s where we see a lot more greenery instead of florals and it’s where we see more candlelight. If you’ve been following Yow Yow! lately then you know that candles are a recent obsession for us.

The details in this wedding are stunning and we hope that you’ll enjoy this video and this feature by Green Wedding Shoes as much as we do. <3
