Video Star – Mindy & Brian

Laura Randall of Edit 1 Media sent me some wonderful videos to share with you all, and I’m defiantly going to start with this one. The music video style is super cool and the couple, although seemingly rather traditional, definitely thought outside the box when it came to their ‘same day edit’. I love the swooping camera moves and the couple’s fun attitude. They didn’t go for a sappy sappy video style and the result is fantastic (we all know I love weddings more than most but overly lovely dovey videos really make me want to hurl!)  

Seeing all these fabulous videos recently is really making me wish we’d gone for a rock n roll wedding day video!

Monochrome Wedding

Remember these wonderful monochrome Bridals by Sarah Austin? Well Sarah has just sent me the wedding pictures. Hurrah! Chad and Valerie’s wedding took place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The Ceremony was only 5 minutes long, and they kept it personal by only having about 80 guests of friends and family. They gave every guest a bottle of tequila as their party favor (I personally can’t stand tequila – bad experience as a 14 year old!) but I am loving the idea of alcoholic favours to get the party started!

Video Star – Paint The Dress

I am loving posting all the videos this week. It seems the word is spreading about little old me and my little old blog and I am being inundated with fabulous video content as well as amazing images..woohooo! Can’t complain about that can we?

This is totally original take on the whole ‘trash the dress’ thing.  Don’t get me wrong I love TTD…in fact I love all dress pictures really, but Darrell Aubert of Aubert Films has taken the idea to a whole new level by telling a ‘trash the dress’ story with film.

Darrell goes on to explain:
Karen [the Bride] is a local part time photographer who was really interested in the TTD phenomenon. She reached out to me to shoot an awesome video for her and her family. I gladly accepted but with one condition, that I could tell a story with her video. One thing I always disliked about TTD was the lack of focus. It was more shock and awe than anything else. I wanted to tell the story of the bride’s situation, why is she doing this?
Karen’s story was one that, I’m sure, many mothers have. 3 kids, all the chores to do, a husband more interested in the football game than her. Her life lacked the spark that she had when she got married all those years ago. Finding her wedding dress and utterly destroying it is her way of expressing her frustrations and also a way of regaining some of that spark.

To read about Karen’s take on the experience, head on over to Darrell’s blog, but for now, check this out!

Vintage Pin Up Wedding…The Wedding!

I’m sure you remember Heather & Lucus’ fabulous vintage pin up stylee engagements?  Well even if you don’t I know you’re going to love their wedding photographs!  I am so honoured that Heather has send me these straight away and I am so excited to share these with you.

Heather describes their day:
The ceremony and reception was held at Squatters Brewery here in Salt Lake. We had a short, 6 minute ceremony that was funny and fit our personalities well. Our Australian friend got ordained and married us. My Dad wore a flamed hot rod tie to walk me down the isle in. I illustrated the two of us for a custom shot glass that was given to anyone that ordered a shot. We had an elaborate retro dessert table with my homemade cupcakes. (I am a self-proclaimed obsessed baker)
There was a retro photobooth for everyone to use, swing dancing, a themed ‘wedding cake’ shot that tasted like vanilla cake, and a cupcake tower. We also had our artist friends do illustrations of us, and framed them for display in the entry area. (I’ve included my favorite one in the folder) :) – By JJ Harrison of

My dress was a Pronovias gown that I bought on ebay for $300. Then I had it trimmed shorter, and had a jacket made to match it, by a girl on Etsy.com.

Thanks Heather, I am in love with your wedding!

Vintage Seaside Loveliness

Firstly sorry for my usual huge lack of posts today, I had a somewhat crazy day at my day job – hence less time for blogging.  How very inconsiderate of my work to make me actually do work and not blogging!  Anyway I will most defiantly be catching up this evening, atarting right now with another little gem from Michele M. Waite.

Lyndsey & Matt had a gorgeous vintage style wedding in Blaine, WA complete with lovely vintage touches throughout including the glassware, seashells, table decor, old bikes which all came from the Bride’s store Penny Lane Vintage.
