Back from the Dead

Well look who’s back, hive! It’s none other than your very own MRS. Unicorn back from the dead. I kinda left y’all hangin’ after my last post, and I can’t apologize enough. I promise I have a pretty good reason for pulling that disappearing act, though.

Mr. U and I bought our very first house!

Isn’t it adorable???

Gratuitous picture of our couch because I am seriously in love with it and those amazeballs chevron pillows.

It’s still hard to believe that this little beauty is ours! After a lot—I mean A LOT—of negotiating back and forth, we closed on the house the week after Thanksgiving. As if our crazy work schedules weren’t enough, we were quickly caught up in a whirlwind of packing and moving and holiday mayhem.

Can you ever forgive me?

Anywho. I figured the best way to kick off the Unicorn recaps is with the wedding video! I am so thrilled with how it came out; it was honestly worth every penny. I had been on the fence about having a videographer, but I am so glad Mr. U and I took the plunge and splurged. The videographer we hired was great to work with and made sure to capture the entire wedding from start to finish.

Without further ado, I give you our wedding video, shot by the wonderfully talented Landon Donoho.

    @Treasure: Thanks! It’s my favorite Etsy find. If only there were more reasons to wear veils.

    @Elephant: So so so worth it, right???? We ended up sending it to folks who couldn’t make it to the wedding, too.

    @Toadstool: Thanks!!!

    @Pain au Chocolat: I just need you to know that the hubs just read your comment and said, “Well Mrs. Pain of Chocolate is tearing up.” As in pain. Like when you accidentally slice your finger open. That kind of pain. Hahahaha. Quickly explained to him that although it looks like “pain,” it’s pronounced “pan” (sort of). But thanks for your sweet comment. New hubby, new house….2012 was such a big year!

    @Pony: Thanks, lady!

    @ecjohnson: I can already tell your wedding is going to be amazing if you’re incorporating chevron fabulousness!

    @Sword: You’re sweet for noticing the decor. Awfully proud of it since most of it was DIY. You just made my day!

    @Paris: If you’re considering hiring a videographer, DO IT! Soooo worth it.

    @Panda: Oh stop it! You’re making me blush. -gigglesnort-

    I have to note – a lot of your guests wore blue too! Did you guys plan that, or was it happy accident?

    Wow, your video had this vintage old-movie feel to it… like it’s already a classic. So many good moments! I loved when the woman caught the flowers and fanned herself. Timed so well with the Shakira music! 😛 Looks like it was a wonderful, beautiful day!

    I love everything about your video. Especially the ceremony glass not breaking! And the thing where you lift the chairs. And just the general happiness. :)

    So many sweet comments! Mr. Unicorn did have some difficulty breaking the glass. I admit I may have giggled at his expense. In the end, the rabbi had to break it and sliced his thumb open in the process. =/

    I know I’ve said it like ten zillion times already…but I am SO SO SO glad we splurged on a videographer.
