Groundbreaking, Earth Shattering Joy

Do I sound a bit OTT with that statement? You won’t think so when you hear this story and see these images. I am not an overly sentimental or gushy, girly girl when it comes to such things…however this story had really touched me.  It is quite simply a joy and an honour to showcase these for you.
As you all know, I am one of MangoRED‘s biggest fans. I (think) I was one of the first bloggers to feature them and I am certainly the first blogger to feature this set (as the gorgeous and amazingly talented brothers emailed me them for first dibs – woohoo!)

Danny & Dena chose to fly the Ryan & Randall all the way from The Philippines to shoot their Baltimore nuptials.
The MangoRED boys describe the circumstances leading up to them heading off to the US of A:
After a furious initial exchange of emails, Randall and I honestly thought it has all the makings of a prank. Ohhhhkaayy… let’s see…“Danny and Dena”..the names sounded overrrly twee. Plus, Dena’s letters were unusually giddy &  goading us into action..got us into thinking…alright…keep the cute coming… we’re not listening! haha. We’d chime in chorus…April fool’s!Who would travel halfway around the world to shoot a stranger’s wedding on ungodly April 1st? However with Dena’s emailing tenacity, it gradually dawned on us that this is happening for real, they are for real! Our hearts sunk and we suddenly found ourselves in stoned ruminations…errrr…..reveling in the waaaarm musical afterglow of the moment. We cant stop conjuring up images of syrupy country-music ballads and hovering butterflies. weeeeeee! Ice-cold America..i have asthma!

Fast forward to Towson Baltimore. Wedding day. I will not even attempt to put it into words. How can one describe episodes of…(warning: hokey lines ahead)… ” rise & fall of purpose and belief? “ or …. ” renewal of hope?”…. ” sustaining of faith? “. The testament to human resilience makes up for the absence of ornament. Everything was devoid of descriptive adjectives. For a moment, one can just forget about the ordinariness of life…

The newlyweds thanked MangoRED for not only photographing their day, but for allowing them to be themselves.  Isn’t that what a rock n roll wedding is all about people?!
Thank you for letting us be real and allowing us to share our story in it’s normal state. Errors, delays, nervousness, and pride with joy. The beauty is not in the garments nor the perfect setting or a perfect written vow. It is made of mistakes and quirky non-sense that seems to follow with smile made of eternity measures. Let us be the lead for what Grooms and Brides…perfection is not necessary, attempt is absolute.

I am literally blown away…

Photo Fusion

Are you guys liking all the videos I have been sharing? Feedback is always nice….I certainly am and this one sent in by Jim Green of Vital Memories is no different.  In his own words, Jim has created a fusion – combining his love of photography, cinematography and music resulting in this beautiful little film. 
“On your wedding day, add some motion and more importantly, natural sound to your pictures, to truly come alive on the big screen. Fusion helps to tell the story that can be missed with just photographs by blending video clips into a creative film, all from a single camera. Adding video clips to great photos is a wonderful way to capture the entire essence of your day!”

Infinitely Better

Video video video..it is aaaaaall about the amazing videos this week and I am loving every minute. In fact I have enjoyed featuring so many gorgeous little films that I have decided to spread the proverbial Rock n Roll branch to encompass more video content that I ever thought I would. I have (literally just signed up to and) launched the Rock n Roll Bride video channel on Vimeo, a place where you can go and see all the videos I have loved and posted here on the site. I will also be endeavoring to make the video section of the blog a lot more prominent, so if you’re coming here looking for video inspiration you’ll be able to locate it all very easily (this is a working progress and relies on my very busy Husband to do some coding for me so may take a little while!) but for now head over to the Rock n Roll Bride channel if you want to browse some of my favourite videos, or if not, stay right here and watch this new cute cute video, sent in today by Tim Sarquis of Infinite Design.

I had to choose this one for his first feature mainly because of the gorgeous song. It (almost) brings a tear to my eye (I don’t cry over soppy stuff so don’t be offended that I didn’t actually shed a tear – I seriously love this video!)

You’ll love this I’m sure…
