our wedding video!

This Thanksgiving, I have so, so very much to be thankful for. A new husband, a new fluffy friend, a new home… the list goes on and on. I am so grateful!

I’m especially thankful for one day in particular that kicked off all of this new, and today I am thrilled to finally share it with you! Without further ado, I hope you enjoy our wedding video by Summer Films.

For those of you on the fence about whether or not to have a videographer at your wedding, let me tell you from personal experience that I am so. so. glad. that we did! In a society of staged photos and endless filters, I love how every moment Summer captured from the day was 100% natural and organical. (I don’t really even remember her being there!) Reliving all of that real joy is such a treasure!

I know I say this often, but it means the world to get to share this special day with all of you. So many of you have followed along with not only our story, but my own journey over the years. I wish every one of you could have been sitting in that church and dancing on that floor with us, but hopefully, this video is the next best thing. :)

I’m hoping each of you have had a wonderful, cozy Thanksgiving and are feeling full and happy! We’re playing Mexican train with the fire on and are just about to dive into some leftovers. Does life get better than your seventh crescent role and second portion of homemade apple pie? #IThinknot

Andrew and I are headed to the ranch tomorrow, but you can bet I’ll be shopping Black Friday sales bright and early before we leave! You’ll find my full list here tomorrow, but in the meantime, there are already some amazing sales that have started.

I’ve been eyeing these boots all season, and they’re now 30% off with the code THANKS. (Praise!!!) I’m also hoping to find this beauty tool on sale somewhere… but I have a feeling the chances are slim. We will see!

In the meantime, here are some of my favorite black friday sales that are already live! I’ll be updating the list tomorrow morning:

    Oh my word…I skipped all the Black Friday deals and went straight to comments lol. That video was truly amazing…I’m sitting here crying like a baby haha! Y’all are a match made in Heaven! What beautiful memories for years to come. I think my favorite thing is when Andrew’s father said his mother had been praying for you for years. I have two very little boys and well…I’m going to start praying now that they meet someone as wonderful as you ☺️ Happy Thanksgiving!

    Love this video. I just got out of a long term relationship and thought that he was “the one” I watch this and know that God has someone for me. Thank you for such a great example of a Godly marriage.
