0:00welcome to this week's episode of happily ever caffeinated your weekly 0:03wedding video series will get stupid I on coffee and talk about weddings i'm 0:07your host just be still and co-founder of photokina and i'm here today with 0:10matthew from a fine press and we're going to be talking about personalizing 0:15your wedding 0:16let's do that I would like my wedding to look like every wedding I've ever seen 0:27on pinterest can you make that happen for me a camera i warn't absolutely i 0:34also like how do i make it personal how do we make it like how there's so many 0:39things i like right how do i define my style says the bride says the broccoli 0:45exactly yeah you can pretend that I have met my enemy and my enemies Pinterest 0:53Pinterest is a tool that you know that can be used for wonderful things 1:01unfortunately most Brides most couples music for the exact opposite reason they 1:06just pulled a bunch of crap from other weddings and that's super cool if you 1:11want your wedding like everybody else's but we're in a whole new place ok it's 1:15been over 10 years since I was married we were young we have a wedding to look 1:19at everybody else's it wasn't pinterest he was just watching internet the 1:24internet really existed but it was what we saw with everybody else and it was 1:30what was expected and the cool thing about getting married today is there are 1:34very few expectations and because we're able to connect and see what other 1:40people around the world are doing 1:41we've all become a little more weird will become a little more us because we 1:46don't have to fit in with the people in our media area we didn't 1:49the people who find online like some weird strange things are global 1:53organization and so a wedding is a chance to show off who use a couple are 2:00like with my clients always try to tell them your invitation i try to move them 2:04to a place where their invitation would read as there's even if their names were 2:08on if they showed up without their names with their guests know that was there 2:12right 2:12if it wouldn't why are they sending likewise pendant you're already spending 2:16the money right spend it on something that looks like you 2:19that feels like you in our case you had a little i would wipe the glasses 2:24everywhere 2:24actually you know what I would do if I are getting married today I would send 2:28out field notes that limitation because I carry one of these around everywhere 2:31go quick plug paragraph 1 send me more please 2:35free please sponsor me know i would totally and he's like I know right i 2:41would send these because I carry one everywhere I go and if my guest got this 2:45they would know it was mine and without my name on it now my wife doesn't take 2:49the field notes so they wouldn't always heard necessary but well there you go 2:53nowhere but there are opportunities at every stage of your wedding to make it 2:59yours and nobody elses every tradition get 4 on 10 3:03you don't have to throw any of them on their hands you can keep every tradition 3:07that you weren't but do because it's meaningful to you not because you're 3:10expected to do it not because you saw it somewhere you know one of the things 3:13that I've seen the phenomenon to tap into the last couple months is this geo 3:17cake thing that are for those of you that haven't seen this this woman 3:22forgive me i'm going to say her last name wrong with Rachel truthful made 3:24this beautiful geo cake for an industry event was anything for a wedding she 3:28made it for an opening of a friend's wedding boutique or I forget what it was 3:34but she was this beautiful cake 3:36it made the rounds it was on huffington post it was on BuzzFeed she was on The 3:40Today Show amazing exposure and I knew the minute 3:43that happen geo cakes everywhere ok they're beautiful but how many 3:48geologists are getting married in America this year you know nothing no 3:52takes against yellow ok we love 3:54oh haha yes geologists get married too but how many of them are there they're 4:00probably fewer geologist in America than geo cakes this year right and so what's 4:07the point in getting a geo take unless you really dig Gio's right make a cake 4:11get a cake made that represents you with someone right and so for me 4:15like literally the only point of the only . we have to stop is if it's not 4:20loving your guests to do something that's like disrespectful to your guests 4:24okay that's one thing if you've got a bunch of old grandma showing up that 4:27might be a little scared by loud music maybe your professional shouldn't be 4:32something too crazy and anthrax but if if you're getting if it's lovin to your 4:41guests if it helps bring them into your community there shouldn't be many rules 4:46and you know i mean i eloped 4:49ok that's how we got married and I am addicted to briars natural vanilla ice 4:54cream with a little beans and I'm totally reasonable thing to be a good 4:57too and it's hot in the keys instead of having a wedding cake we did fruit salad 5:02and a scoop of buyers been a ice cream on the side 5:05how cool is the best thing ever cool delicious i love it 5:09yeah i think it makes a ton of sense and so for me it's a hundred percent about 5:14injecting as much personality as humanly possible into every piece that I do for 5:18my clients and trying to get my clients to see that is the way that they 5:22planner women and I know that we haven't talked about this but I'm like stare I'm 5:27and constantly just what are those and why 5:30how can i get them at all i think that likes this is skool skool this is 5:36actually the case for invitation i did really i will administer them both of 5:40them check this out there actually posters their laser engraved wood 5:44posters can you doing that 5:47there we go crazy with the better wait i know right and this was actually a 5:53solution to how in the world do I mail the concrete wedding invitation hungry 5:58its concrete cast concrete let's yes how much postage for this 6:04it doesn't matter when you're spending concrete money on invitations right so 6:08it takes us 6:12it takes a special couple to do concrete but like if you really dig industrial 6:16furniture if your house is concrete floors and be like I'm you know this is 6:21the foundation of our wedding get any nudes she's party tonight very pretty i 6:26love is how does this how did you pre screen-printed it's just screen-printed 6:30on cast concrete took up five or six iterations is actually one of the 6:34earlier iterations which is why it's cracked because it was actually gonna 6:38take a picture at this hour so i can post it so people can see better 6:42yes that's amazing 6:45so it became a question of how the world we ship them 6:48yeah and I thought what are we gonna do might as well make something that the 6:51guests can keep as a keep safe so that becomes your case that's me put a rubber 6:58band around that and you've got two posters and an invitation all-in-one 7:02package minds and get this you'll notice there's no date on here there's there's 7:09no monogram on here so they can use it for whatever is someone going to hang 7:13your monogram on the wall 7:14no one's gonna do that if your favorite has your name and the date on it unless 7:18they're super creepy if you can do favors for a part of your program or 7:22part of your invitation that maybe relates to your wedding in some way but 7:26doesn't just scream hey this is our wedding night then people might actually 7:31you have a chance of it being a part of someone's life and as a photographer her 7:36if I was shooting a wedding that sent out an invitation suite this badass 7:40right i would include that in the detail exactly thats I mean want people to be 7:45excited about 7:46I love it it's kind of exciting i absolutely love this incredible they 7:50hurt in using us with personality i try i mean our cold everyone has that orange 7:57you are you this is really good and didn't really have I told you its wheels 8:02on google yeah I'm all day 8:05he's fabulous Matthew thank you please let your joining absolutely areas i'm 8:10always question with the question itself is worth fixing ? sorry very especially 8:24when you're always pushed into when you try to find what

You be you!

So, you’re getting married?

Do you and your fiance have personalities?

Great! Your guests want to see them!

I had the incredible opportunity to sit down with Jessie Stehlik of Foto Bohemia and talk unique weddings through the lense of invitations. This is a must-watch!
