Real Weddings

Happy Friday, brides-to-be! As you dive headfirst into a weekend packed with wedding planning fun, we wanted to bring you a healthy dose of big-day inspiration to get your creative wheels turning. It's no secret that our new favorite place to get great ideas is from our brand new real weddings video channel, where countless love stories are brought to life. Each week we've been sharing one of our favorite flicks, and today we are spotlighting Lindsey and Mike's summer wedding in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

Aqua Vivus Productions joined the couple for their traditional church ceremony and music-filled outdoor reception on June 12, 2014. The video starts on a high note, with tons of emotion and love radiating from the couple and their friends and family. As the bride gets ready for her big moment, she enjoys some quality (digital!) time with her grandparents over Facetime. Then, she shares a special first look with her father, who is absolutely right as he tearfully calls her gorgeous.
