9 Unconventional Things We Did at Our Wedding

Planning a wedding is insanity. I totally get why some people just elope and tell the world what happened later. That way, you save a bajillion dollars some money, avoid making decisions about things that have no real meaning, and focus completely on the marriage itself. At the same time, I’m so happy that Aaron and I had a big wedding. It was truly the best day of our lives, mostly because weddings are an awesome excuse to get all of your favorite people in one room to watch you commit your life to someone you adore. How could...

Leyko Wedding Video: The Original Song

Good morning, all! I said I’d share a video from the wedding of the original song I wrote/sang for Aaron, so here it is! A few notes: Sorry I am so shaky at the beginning…I was slightly nervous and emotional. Can’t imagine why! I never claimed to be a pretty crier, and boy is it weird-looking when I’m singing and crying at the same time at the end. Our awesome videographer The Girl Tyler took clips from our original wedding video and intermingled them here to make things more interesting. Thank you so much, Tyler & co., for our...

Our Wedding Video!

Friday is Aaron’s and my two month anniversary, so I am THRILLED to share with you our wedding video! I’m not going to write much because I know you all just want to watch it, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a ginormous, gargantuan, colossal thank you to our phenomenal videographer, The Girl Tyler, and her entire staff– especially her husband, fellow videographer, and editor, Martin. They knew they couldn’t include everything in just 10 minutes, like the hysterical part of the Matron of Honor speech when my sister-in-law read aloud our entire Gchat conversation that took place...

The Leyko Wedding: A Tale of Minivans, Corsets, & Hijacked Ubers

I said I would write a post about our wedding, so this is me following through on my word. Take note, 2016 presidential candidates. I’m going to tackle this wedding review in Question & Answer format, because organization is hard. Q: What time did you start getting ready, and what did you do before the ceremony? A: I always thought I’d wake up extremely early on my wedding day, like a kid on Christmas morning, but I underestimated Wedding Week Exhaustion. Therefore, I groggily woke up to my alarm at 7:30 a.m. and stayed in bed for about half an hour...
