Wedding Wednesday ~ The Video

I can't believe we are already creeping up on our first anniversary. This year has absolutely flown by. I keep thinking about where we were at this time last year. Life was in complete chaos and our house looked like a wedding warehouse. We had some really great people working on our wedding. I loved how everything turned out and wouldn't change anything at all.

I know a lot of people go back and forth about wedding videography and some people choose to forego the video in the interest of saving some money. Big mistake in my opinion. A video does something that a photo just can't. Don't get me wrong, I love our wedding photos. But I don't tear up every time I see them.

Our videographer did a short edit along with an extended edit that is about an hour long, and also gave us all of the raw footage from the entire day. The raw footage is hilarious. Hearing all of the nonsense happening in the background at the hotel with the girls getting ready? Priceless. Those are just moments that you can never get back, or even really remember in the first place because your wedding day is a blur.

By the way, our videographer was amazing. He did such a great job and to tell you the truth I never even knew he was there. The only time I even remember seeing him was when he arrived at my hotel room. Our friends are getting married in Half Moon Bay next fall and they loved his work so much they have already hired him to do their wedding!

Happily 28

Nick's birthday was actually back in June, the same weekend of my sister's wedding so we pushed his birthday celebration back a week. We spent the weekend in Napa wine tasting and roasting in the heat. Northern CA has had one hell of a heat wave the last two weeks.

Saturday we went to a few wineries and then had dinner at a new restaurant in Yountville we hadn't tried yet that had delicious wood fire pizzas.

I made a key lime pie from scratch and Nick opened his presents. I got him an Xbox which I'm pretty sure makes me either the coolest wife ever, or the stupidest. I'm not sure which yet.

We spent all day Sunday baking ourselves next to the pool. It was so hot that eventually all of the dogs joined us {not by choice I might add}.

Here is Teddy watching the other three dogs in the pool from above. We haven't had a chance to get him to a lake yet this summer and we were trying to avoid putting him in the pool. I want him to love to swim and not be scared, and throwing a puppy in the pool isn't usually the best way to foster a love for water. But, it was way too hot and it had to happen.

Mr. Husband isn't the biggest fan of birthdays but I think this was a good one.

I love you sweet husband and I am so looking forward to spending the rest of our birthdays together!
