Our Beautiful Wedding Video

Me and my handsome husband on our wedding day!

To say that August 29, 2015 was the best day of my life is definitely an understatement!

To be totally honest, I have trouble writing about our wedding. I simply don’t have enough faith in my word-craftsmanship. Trying to depict that beautiful day through my writing would be like attempting to recreate the statue of David with a chainsaw, or the Mona Lisa with a twelve-pack of Crayolas.

Me and my handsome husband on our wedding day!

It’s hard to write about our romance, to translate such a radiant feeling onto the dull glow of a Macbook. It’s hard to capture the magnificence, the pure white blooming swirling worshipping sparkling bubbling overflowing joy of that day.

In fact, I must have re-written the extremely brief reference to our wedding in my About Me at least twenty-nine times… and I still don’t love it.

At the altar with my handsome husband, my dad, and the wedding party!

I’ll let the photos and film speak for me, but all I can say is that the past eight months and six days have been hands-down the best of my life.

Every day with this man is a special occasion. Every day with him is The Trevathan Celebration!

Our wedding film rendered me speechless the first time I saw it. I hope you love it too!

    Oh my gosh, these are really gorgeous wedding photos! I actually have a very strange habit of watching the wedding videos of people I don’t know haha. I am at work right now but I am definitely going to bookmark this to come back and watch it when I am not. I love your dress by the way! So timeless and classic. Let’s follow each other by the way!

      Hahah girl that’s not a strange habit at all!! I feel like everyone does that! …or maybe I just have the strange habit too 😉

      Glad you bookmarked the film!! I may be biased, but I think Silver Tie Films truly created a masterpiece for us.
