This song can’t help but put a smile on your face.  Whether you love the lyrics, or Colbie Caillat’s sweet voice, you can’t deny what it says:  what is better than being so lucky to marry your best friend. Enjoy the awesome and fun music video with Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat and enjoy the lucky feeling if you are or have been lucky enough to marry your best friend.

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had done more kiss
I’ll wait for you I promise you, I will

Mark + Heather, 7.16.11 (Part 1)

We are featuring Mark + Heather in a two part series because their Love Story Video is a MUST SEE! They have such an amazing story of meeting, parting, and crossing paths again later in life, before completely falling in love. It’s one of those crazy stories of fate and you just HAVE to watch it. We filmed it out at their ranch and was able to capture a lot of their personality that really made it unique.

Our Brides Say It Best!

We LOVED these two! We surprised her with a Same Day Edit at her wedding that NO ONE was expecting.. she was in total shock! Here’s what she had to say about it..

“I absolutely loved everything about ASI. They are completely professional from the beginning. We used from for DJ, Storybook video and wedding videography, which they provided us with a discount for bundling. Our DJ was great and we were able to meet with him beforehand and he was very professional. We had a lot of toasts and he handled everything well, kept the microphone going to the right people, etc. I was completely happy with him.

I have 100% faith that ASI would take care of you. Cali is the owner and she is wonderful. She has taken care of every detail regarding the services we got. My fiancé at the time was in California (he’s a Marine) and I was in Nebraska, so she was very flexible when we had like two days to shoot our storybook video. We LOVE our story book video. They are so professional and do quality, beautiful work, but you can absolutely tell that it means so much to them too.

If you can’t tell, I am in LOVE with ASI and I would hire them again in an instant. I can’t imagine anyone else being there that day and I honestly think you will be so happy with them. I still can’t help gushing about them.”

Father Daughter Song – Bruce Springsteen “When You Need Me”

So, you’re over the sappy love songs and your father is much more of a rock n roll type of guy.  That’s perfect, because we’ve found the cutest song by by Bruce Springsteen that could be the perfect match for any rock and roll Dad and of course, his beautiful daughter. It’s a great song to let your Dad know that even though you have a new man in your life, it won’t change that fact that you still need your Dad everyday.

When you need me call my name
‘Cause without you my life just wouldn’t be the same
If you want me come sunny skies or rain
When you need me just call my name

If you miss me, I’ll be there
To brush the sunlight from your hair
I’ll be there to guide you when trouble walks beside you
If you need me I’ll be there
And when this dirty world has been cold to you
I got two strong arms waitin’ to hold you
And when those mean days come along
We’ll stand together and we’ll take ’em on
So if you need me just call my name

When you need me call my name
‘Cause without you my life just isn’t the same
‘Cause when this world kicked me around
You picked me up off the ground
So if you need me I’ll be there

New Spin on Old Traditions

So many brides today are trying their best to make their special day extremely unique which we can’t blame them. However, there are some brides that refuse to budge on the traditional favorites. Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue for example, maybe these brides are so superstitious that they don’t want to jinx themselves with not including this old tradition or maybe they just simply love it.

A New Spin on Some Old Ideas

Something Old: Get rid of that “old” handkerchief that you have (you don’t know where that thing has been!) And find something creative, like the veil that your grandmother wore at her wedding. It would be awesome if you could manage to find an antique or heirloom pair of earrings that accent your dress beautifully.

Something New: This being the item that seems to be the easiest to locate, it could be something as simple as your NEW elegant wedding dress. Another great idea could be adding a brilliant new tiara; after all you are the princess! J

Something Borrowed: This category seems to go hand in hand with the something old. It is trending these days to wear the wedding dress that your mother or grandmother wore on their special day but if that isn’t a possibility here are a few ideas. Getting family and friends involved is just that easy; they will be more than willing to help out. A great idea would be to borrow that awesome little purse that your friend had at her wedding. Every good bride will have a handy dandy little emergency purse with her on that special day!

Something Blue: Rather than that blue garter that you found, try having your bridesmaids sign the bottom of your wedding heels with blue permanent marker. Or even stitching your wedding date into your dress with blue thread! Just recently we came across a photo from Elwood Photography of a bride that bedazzled her shoes with blue gems spelling out “I DO”, how fun is that?!

Lance + Katie, 7.9.11

GORGEOUS! There really is no other way to describe this wedding – We had our first opportunity to work with Dustin from Creating Atmosphere, who completely transformed a small town gym into one of the most perfect wedding receptions we have ever seen! If you love pink, you won’t be able to get enough of this wedding. Matt with Elwood Photography captured some amazing images (below!) and their video is hands down one of our favs. Hope you feel the same!

Our Brides Say It Best!

A Sound Impression created a Love Story for this couple as well as a Video of their Big Day! Here are the comments she shared about her experience.

“WE LOVE THEM BOTH!! I’m pretty sure we’ve already watched the highlight video about ten times and we watched the Love Story twice on the Sunday after the wedding. YOU ROCK!!”

“Thanks so much!!”

First Dance – Train “Marry Me”

Could the words be anymore perfect for the upcoming big day? Now the story told in the song might not be exactly how you and your love met but the feeling of your intense love has to be very similar! A song that speaks of eternal love, forever and always. These lyrics could be just exactly what you would like to express to your loved one on your wedding day. Music video is below!

Forever can never be long enough for me
Feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won’t let them see
But there’s one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way
Marry me
Today and everyday

–OR–

Promise Me
You’ll always be
Happy by my side
I promise to
Sing to you
When all the music dies

And marry me
Today and everyday
Marry me
