VLOG: Our Wedding Video

Has it been 6 months already?! 

This past week, Jeff and I celebrated half a year of marriage and in honor of this, I thought it be appropriate to share our wedding video! Being the video people that we are, we thought, "Hey, we can just edit our own video." Well this was a LOT harder than I thought it was going to be! As I would search through the footage, I would start watching it and reminiscing in our little home office. Pretty soon, 2 hours had gone by and I hadn't put together anything yet! I quickly realized I was in for more work than I had originally thought. 

But here it is! And I'm so glad I was able to go through our footage, watching all of the crazy, happy and beautiful moments that will never make it into a video. Here's to the rest of our lives!

Disney for Valentines + Our First Vlog

As you can clearly see below... I was constantly terrified on the rides while Jeff seemed quite content. 

All in all, it was a magical trip. 

This was my first experience with Hollywood Studios and it quickly became my favorite! From rolling down memory lane in Toy Story to dropping to my death in Tower of Terror; from getting lost in the Beauty and the Beast stage production to saving the universe in Star Wars, there was always something that seemed to draw me in and draw out that crazy, Disney-lovin' girl in me. 

One of the highlights from Hollywood Studios had the be the Sci-Fi Diner. I have always fantasized pulling up in an old car to a drive in movie and splitting a chocolate milkshake with my cool date. It was all I ever dreamed of and more! The food was fantastic and the atmosphere really makes you feel like your out on top of a hill in Cali on a summer night under the stars. 

Jeff and I always check the crowd calendars before we go on a trip and the days leading up to Valentine's Day were pretty low. So if your looking for a good time to go, this would be it! The weather was perfect, the parks were dreamy and the lines were decent (thanks to our fast passes on the Disney App!). I'm already planning our next trip and it's safe to say you'll see another video from us very soon!

Our Wedding 09.28.16

 

Yeah... we had a good time. 

September twenty-eighth was the most beautiful, romantic, perfect day of my life. Everything went off flawlessly- at least to my knowledge- and a huge part of that was because of my vendors, the people who made my day everything I had every dreamed of. Some of them are local, some you can find, and some will travel :)

West Palm Getaway

Hot and sticky... just the way we like it! Nothing beats the Florida heat and our thirsty Colorado skin soaked up every ounce of it. Making the getaway to West Palm Beach was one of the best decisions we've made in a long time. We were able to stay with Jeff's family and he took great pleasure in giving me the grand tour of his journey from childhood to adulthood. This swampy land holds so many moments and memories for him; it was so neat to catch a glimpse into his past and learn more of who he is. 

Taking the time to just be together, without the stress, demands, and interruptions of life, was an all-too-important lesson that these two learned rather quickly. Seeing each other completely at rest allowed us to see the other for who they truly are, without the mask of just making it through the day

Whether we were chasing giant palmetto bugs, pigging-out on Publix subs, kissing our salty lips in the ocean, or driving around late at night with the windows down and singing to our hearts' content, not one moment was put to waste. 

Now we're back and with just a little over 4 months till our wedding day, there is certainly a LOT to be rested up for. Until next time Florida; you will be missed. Well.. sort of. I don't miss the bugs!
