Wedding Mondays

I know it feels like we just waved goodbye to wedding season, but even in October I’m looking ahead to what I already have for next year. Next up? Two weddings in March – one of which I’m a bridesmaid! Honestly, I couldn’t be more thrilled, but this just means that we’ve always got weddings on the brain. I don’t hate it. You already know that. I especially don’t hate the wedding video that I’m sharing with you all today. When you’re reading a post about a wedding being featured on a wedding blog site, it typically follows a general layout. You start with a photo – it’s simple, it’s the venue or the decor, the shoes, or the invite. Then you get scroll down and get to see your first glimpses of the couple, the dress, the wedding party. You’re basically unraveling a story. As you get more and more into the details, you sort of hope there will be a video at the end tying it all together. Ugh, isn’t that just like the true beauty of a wedding video?

This one between Aften and Brian is so sweet. There are no verbal exchanges, but there is a lot happening here. It also doesn’t hurt that they featured one of my favorite songs – can you guess which of the four it is?!

Enjoy!

Wedding Mondays

Happy Monday everyone! I hope many of you are enjoying your day off if you have one and for those that are working today – thank you. It’s been a busy month over here with moving and a week-long vacation back home that we’ve actually neglected Wedding Mondays a bit. I decided to spend yesterday getting caught up on what I may have missed from all of my favorite blogs, but the one that we’re sharing today is actually a personal one. This past Memorial Day Weekend, I flew to Raleigh, North Carolina (my first time in the south, really!) to watch one of my first friends from college walk down the aisle.

Jodie and I met during our summer orientation before freshman year of college and she was the first friend I saw once I moved into my dorm. Over the years, the two of us have shared so many memories together both inside of school and outside. Shortly, after I left Seattle for California, she relocated to North Carolina and while I never did get to visit her before her wedding day, it was nice to spend a few days there getting to know the space that she lived in. Manan and I made a little trip out of it and ventured to a number of neighborhoods and sampling all of the must-have meals.

She was the most beautiful bride and this wedding video captures her and Greg’s special day perfectly. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of it!

KITH x Vogue’s 125th Anniversary

To celebrate Vogue Magazine’s 125th anniversary, the fashion magazine got together with KITH to put out a line of chic and colorful sweatshirts. If this gives you all of the 90’s feels, then your hunch is right. I know everyone loves a hoodie staple, but I can’t get enough of the crewneck sweatshirt style especially in these bright and fun colors. Each sweatshirt has a branded “Vogue” logo on the front and is made with french terry for the coziest and comfiest snug ever. Just in time for the fall season, you can purchase the five different kinds of crewnecks beginning September 4th and the hoodies beginning September 11th both online and in-stores.

Tokyo Gifathon

Very recently, I posted about James Curran’s Los Angeles Gifathon. I’m happy to share that he’s got one for Tokyo too! Every time I see one of his GIF tweets appear in my feed, they make me so happy. The loop is never all that long, but I find myself getting sucked in longer than usual. When James was in Tokyo, he constructed a different GIF for each of his 30 days. Enjoy! Make sure your sound is on for the full effect!

Wedding Mondays

Elisa had asked me the other day if I had posted any good Wedding Mondays videos lately and the honest answer was that I hadn’t – not since May. If I could, I’d have one ready every week. I went through my wedding blogs today – like I do every Sunday – trying to find the right one. The end of it let me down. So then I sat and thought about it a little bit more. Did I have any… in the queue? Was it in my notes and had I just somehow not gotten to a few of them yet? Sure enough, there was one. It was like the universe knew I needed a wedding video and saved this one just for today. It’s special because as soon as I watched it, I kind of knew why I had been saving it for so long. It was so unbelievably perfect. It didn’t come with a wedding feature. In fact, I don’t know where it came from. It looks like I had just stumbled upon it somewhere and knew I needed to save it so I saved just the link for the video.

There is so much that I love about this video though. I know nothing about these two people; there’s no story that accompanies it except only their dialogue. I love that Meg wore several dresses the night of her wedding – something I, too, believe in. :) The best part? The two got married on New Year’s Eve! I’ve been thinking for some time now that having a wedding on New Year’s Eve is genius because most people hate this holiday. Most don’t want to make plans for New Year’s Eve so why not host the best party ever to kick off the year?

LA Gifathon

I’ve been following James Curran on Twitter for what feels like a year now and since I discovered him, I have been glued to his GIFs. They’re a mixture of adorableness, but also innovative and whimsical. Last July, he spent a month in LA and challenged himself by releasing a new LA-themed GIF every day. It was awesome. And yes, I actually checked every day! Here is all of them compiled into a video for your convenience.

“Disillusionment of 10 Point Font”

I really love projects like these and something that drew me to “Disillusionment of 10 Point Font” was that it involved both visual and sound. Watching this video was incredibly satisfying and I almost wished it could have been longer. Also, watching this reminded me of that one video full of unsatisfying moments, which reminded me of Veronica. I know she’s going to like this one! This short film was done by Greg Condon.

Happy Monday! I am so excited to share this wedding video with you all this morning because it just happens to be done by Grimace Films – the same videographers that also did Mandi and Eric’s wedding this past fall! From the looks of this wedding, you would have no idea that Talia and Tim had their original wedding venue fall through six months before their special day, but everything in the end turned out to be okay for them. Surrounded by their friends and family, the happy couple still had their dream wedding set in Palm Springs at the Colony Palms Hotel. Also, I’ve never seen a wedding that included synchronized swimmers as part of the entertainment, but I like being surprised by the features that I see. Watch the video above for all of the darling details and join in on Talia and Tim’s day of joy! For the full feature, visit Green Wedding Shoes.

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.

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!

The Story of Emma Stone and Her First Oscar

Emma Stone will always be #1 in my book over Jennifer Lawrence. How crazy is it that she came from Superbad and now has an Oscar for Best Actress? I’ve probably seen 75% of the films listed in this short video (and still no La La Land,) but still in awe of her talent.

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!

Ryan Scafuro’s “Election Night”

There have been three very memorable election nights for me – 2008, 2012, and 2016. In 2008, I voted for the first time and I got to witness something truly incredible in my first year of college alongside my new friends. In 2012, I did it again, but this time the celebration was toned down because – you know, we graduated from college already and we were comfortable. In 2016, we got over confident. I almost didn’t vote because I was not registered in the state of California to do so. Tommy made sure that we were going to make that happen though. He accompanied me to the polls (my first time ever!) and he watched me finish casting my ballot in less than a minute (something that I was proud of and that I had prepped for!) Internally, I thought I wouldn’t have anything to worry about. When I got home after work that day, I thought I would be feeling the way I did in 2012 – relaxing on my couch, watching the results, and hopefully having a silent celebration by myself. I felt like I had that “500 Days of Summer” Reality vs. Expectations moment and it broke me. I will never forget how I felt that evening of the election and the sinking feeling I had the next morning when I dragged myself into work.

It was hard to watch this short film by Ryan Scafuro documenting a group of people watching the election results come in. I didn’t want to relive this day again, but it brought me solace knowing that there were people – like me – feeling the way that I did watching the results. Not all of these feelings though resonated with me. There are people in this film that disagreed with my views and I remember watching this and trying my hardest to just understand. I was left with one question. Why do we root for humor or for something that is considered a joke in serious matters like this one? There’s a difference between that and rooting for the underdog that I think people get confused by.

Thank you Herman for sharing this!

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.
