A YEAR AGO today, we were wrapping up our last day of the work week, throwing together some sub plans, and heading to the airport for our honeymoon in Maui (ohhh, we should blog about that!)! And with that comes a strong case of the Maui blues. So, our best way to address this ailment; our wedding video and bright walls.
We’ve blogged about our wedding before. It was perfect and everything we hoped it would be and worked so hard for. We’ve got shit to do tonight, so instead of acting like a broken record player, here’s a post where we shared a tonnnnnn of details about our big day, a big ole post about the things that we have zero regrets about, and then another one with even more things that we don’t regret. We’ve said it before, but it truly was the perfect day.
But one thing that we haven’t really shared yet is OUR WEDDING VIDEO! Leading up to our wedding, hiring our videographer was one of those “nice to have” things, but not necessarily a priority. A year later, we have absolutely no regrets. Without further ado…
This is seriously our most favorite thing. And we’ve watched it 1,339 times in the last week (okay, not quite), but seriously – our absolute favorite. We can’t recommend our videographer enough (Franz Knight of FM Visuals.) He’s a bad ass videographer, and was an absolute delight to work with.
FAST FORWARDING A YEAR+ LATER to this weekend, we made a road trip down to one of our favorite places, Jackson, Michigan for Bright Walls, or as they called it this year, Bright Spots. During a regular year, Bright Walls is kick ass week-long public art and mural festival founded and run by the Jackson Young Professionals. It’s our favorite thing. If you watched the video above, you’ll see that a lot of our wedding shots are actually taken in front of the murals that were a part of Bright Walls.
This year’s festival was smaller (hence the “Bright Spots”) compared to last year, but just as magical. Here’s our selfies in front the four murals from this year (thanks to Alan’s beloved selfie stick.)
And for shits and giggles, here’s a few comparisons between 2019 and 2020. We love that these murals stay up FOREVER!
Fill your life with people you love and bright walls.
