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 morning everyone! I don’t believe that I’ve ever shared a wedding video from the team at Lalo Vargas before, but just a few seconds into watching the beginning of this, I knew we had to include it in our series. Since this was a Mexico destination wedding, you’ll see a few different scenes as part of the wedding weekend. I’ve been doing this series of Wedding Mondays for as long as I can remember. And just so you know, the whole interest in this from the beginning was always events. I was not that little girl that dreamt of her future wedding day when I was five like many might think. What caught my eye about this wedding though is that it was so elaborate, but authentic and genuine. Often times, you don’t see the whole wedding weekend. A few years ago, you didn’t even get a wedding weekend, you would have a day or an evening and that was it. I’m always going to be #teamweddingvideo and I love that this is a thing for our time. Yes, it does need to be something that gets budgeted, but it’s so worth it.

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!

Wedding Mondays

We are overdue for a Wedding Mondays post and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this one with you all this morning. I’m actually headed to a wedding this weekend – my last one of the season! – however, before we get excited about that one, I wanted to express how much it pained me to have to miss the nuptials of Alyssa and Eric. I’ve known both of them since my freshman year of college and even remember meeting Eric during my first week at orientation. They both have been great friends to me over the years so it was difficult when I learned I couldn’t make their special day.

This video was everything though. I’m elated to see how special their day was and it was nostalgic thinking about how their relationship blossomed into what is now a marriage when I look back on their years of dating in college. Alyssa was a stunning bride and I’ve never seen Eric look so handsome. These two are so perfect together <3

Thank you both for sharing some amazing photos and this video to catch me up on what I missed. I wish you two a very happy marriage and a lifetime of happiness together.

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?

I just returned home yesterday after witnessing one of my very first friends from college marry the love of her life in Raleigh, North Carolina. And it only seemed right that you all would have a post from me today for Wedding Mondays. Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day! I’ve been saving this wedding video for some time. There are so elements that I love – the couple Peggie and Miles for their fun loving spirit, the fact that their wedding video is backed by Cults, and the decor. I’m nowhere near my own wedding day, but I know that I love greenery more than flowers and I love a lot of light and if that should include candles in my day – then so be it! I couldn’t embed the wedding video here, but you can watch it here on their feature by Green Wedding Shoes!

Wedding Mondays

Over time, keeping up with Wedding Mondays has become more and more challenging for several reasons. It takes some time to sift through the wedding blogs that I love to see if there are any videos featured in the posts from the previous week. Secondly, over time, my bar has gotten kind of high. The good thing is that hopefully we’re showcasing more wedding videos that you like or that are new to you and inspire you like they do for me. The hard part is that some weeks there aren’t any videos I want to feature. I’ve gotten to be okay with that over the years, but there’s a part of me that gets irritate when I can’t share something consistently every week.

All it took was a second. That first note in TRACE’s “Honey” and I was completely sucked in. Then came the desert shots and the personalized vows all set to the sounds of “Honey.” I was so glad that it wasn’t Walk the Moon or any other cliche wedding song because it just would have felt out of place. Hopefully, you’ll love this as much as I do!

Unfortunately, I can’t embed the video, but you can view it here and the rest of the feature on Green Wedding Shoes.

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.

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!

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!

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!)

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.

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!
