On average, the process of putting together one of these posts takes about three months. To find images, I have about 10 Tumblrs that I circulate through. Each post roughly has about 50 images, but today, this one has less. I’m posting this one now though because I’m close to 50 and there won’t be any other Tumblrs that I’ll be viewing within the next couple of months. It has also been three months since I posted A Collection Part 49. I’m telling you all of this because that is the only structure I have when it comes to making these. There are no themes. I don’t spend any time re-arranging them in a certain order. The differences in size of images would normally bother me anywhere else, but not here. There are no patterns for colors. I can’t explain to you why I selected this image over that one and I don’t want to. I look at these photos so quickly and I save them in an instant the same way a normal human being would fill out one of those personality tests that you’re not supposed to think too much about it. That’s it! Since the migration, every other post before this has been skewed to the left. Starting now and with post #50, we’re going to center it. It just looks better!

Since we migrated the blog, I’ve been taking a break not only from Wedding Mondays, but posting entirely. Knowing that I would have to go back and change the formatting of some posts or re-learn how to use WordPress was extremely intimidating to me. Right now, I would say I’m on training wheels, but as the days go on, I’m starting to get more and more comfortable with the platform. Even though we’re close to Tuesday, I really wanted to post a Wedding Mondays video this evening. I’m about to head into my month of weddings with two of them in March – including the one for my best friend. I’ve never quite seen a video like this one and it was so soothing and relaxing to watch right before bed. Having just returned from Palm Springs and spending some time there in the last couple of years, I’m a huge fan of the desert weddings. Since the setting is so beautiful, there’s not much more that you need to add to it or DIY. It speaks so strongly on its own and is effortlessly gorgeous. I love everything about this wedding. Watch the video and then head on over to Green Wedding Shoes for their wedding feature.

I don’t have a Style Me Pretty or Green Wedding Shoes page to direct you to after watching this video today because I randomly stumbled upon it! While perusing different wedding video vendors, I came across this wedding video from Jesse and Glenn’s special day and it moved me to near tears. It’s not a surprise at all that it’s our Wedding Video for Monday and I hope you all fall in love with it as much as I did! The happy couple were married at Casa Loma in Toronto, Canada.

Since I just returned from Ashley’s bridal shower, I guess you could say that we’re on a little bit of a wedding high. The next couple of months are packed with wedding activities for her so naturally, that has me thinking about weddings often. I finally got a chance to catch up on wedding videos this weekend while I was at home and came across a couple that I ended up loving.
The one that I’m sharing this week is about Gloria and Tommy’s special day. They met on a dating app called Hinge and their love story is so sweet. Y’all know I’m a sucker for an emotional bride and even more for an emotional groom!
There are so many details to love in this wedding feature including their donuts, watercolored drink menu, and how they both incorporated their heritage and culture into the ceremony. For the full feature on their Malibu wedding, click here to visit Style Me Pretty.

We don’t always time these posts with the end of the year, but it feels good, doesn’t it? Even as I search for photos it’s nice to be able to put something together that wraps up the end of the year and my feelings towards a new year. The start of this post doesn’t look anything like the end of this post, which I think is pretty different for a change. You can definitely tell that I’m feeling some sort of way by the end of this. What is it exactly? That I’m holding on to millennial pink? That I’ve got a love inanimate objects? Those things, but maybe a couple of other things that aren’t so obvious.

We may have missed this by a couple of days, but this engagement photo shoot of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is everything. Honestly, did anyone ever think that it could be a disaster? I know it seems like things are moving fast and that this whole news of their engagement was quick, but we’re obsessed already.
For the shoot, Meghan wore a ballgown from the Ralph & Russo Fall 2016 collection. Their stunning engagement photos were shot by photographer Alexi Lubomirski.

I had a few moments at work today where I kind of glanced off and started thinking about my own thoughts and what I happened to be thinking about was wedding videos. I hadn’t picked a video for today yet when I was at work. When I went to my bed last night and closed my laptop I had three videos up at the top of my tabs. Would one of them be it? Sometimes none of them are for that week. I started to ask myself why I loved wedding videos as much as I did. How could I possibly become very emotional about something that has absolutely nothing to do with me at all most of the time? It wasn’t just because of my background in event planning. It’s not cause I love romantic comedies. One of those reasons is because I love the work that goes into making an incredible wedding video. I currently work for a company that is heavily involved with media and I grew up in a family surrounded by the arts. It has been there for me since before I could remember and it’s still a part of my life now. A wedding video is a couple’s story, sure, but it can can convey so much more than that.
I hope you all will enjoy this wedding video. There are so many beautiful elements to this New York City warehouse wedding and their story will tug at your heart strings. For the full feature, click here.
