Blog Love | Some healthy inspiration from Marta + Brock | Fit For Two TV

Blog Love.

Today’s blog is inspired by two people I’ve never met, but who I have had the pleasure of being “introduced” to by my good friends, Wanda and Brian, at Studio67, who speak so amazingly highly of them that you can’t help but feel the same way.

You know how you feel like you know somebody, even if you’ve never met them, by the way someone else close to you speaks about them? This is precisely the case with Marta and Brock and I. As an avid Studio67 Blog visitor, I watched Marta and Brock’s Same Day Edit the day it was released on Wanda and Brian’s website, and I instantly fell in love with the details. I loved the story, I loved the elements, I loved the animals. I loved the reading by Taylor Mali, Falling In Love Is Like Owning A Dog….

First of all, it’s a big responsibility,
especially in a city like New York.
So think long and hard before deciding on love.
On the other hand, love gives you a sense of security:
when you’re walking down the street late at night
and you have a leash on love
ain’t no one going to mess with you.
Because crooks and muggers think love is unpredictable.
Who knows what love could do in its own defense?

On cold winter nights, love is warm.
It lies between you and lives and breathes
and makes funny noises.
Love wakes you up all hours of the night with its needs.
It needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy.

Love doesn’t like being left alone for long.
But come home and love is always happy to see you.
It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life,
but you can never be mad at love for long.

Is love good all the time? No! No!
Love can be bad. Bad, love, bad! Very bad love.

Love makes messes.
Love leaves you little surprises here and there.
Love needs lots of cleaning up after.
Sometimes you just want to get love fixed.
Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper
and swat love on the nose,
not so much to cause pain,
just to let love know Don’t you ever do that again!

Sometimes love just wants to go for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise.
It runs you around the block and leaves you panting.
It pulls you in several different directions at once,
or winds around and around you
until you’re all wound up and can’t move.

But love makes you meet people wherever you go.
People who have nothing in common but love
stop and talk to each other on the street.

Throw things away and love will bring them back,
again, and again, and again.
But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.

You can read / see all about Marta and Brock’s special day, Studio67-style, on their blog, here!

As I became (pseudo-)acquainted with who Marta and Brock were (via their wedding details), they were kind enough to find me on Facebook, and compliment the work I do. It was after this that  I began to notice the work that they do professionally (and passionately!) and became completely inspired! As the co-founders of Fit For Two TV, Brock and Marta spend their days inspiring others to live life differently, appreciate one another wholly, and push each other beyond previously-established limits.

Not only do Brock and Marta push one another to achieve new goals, live healthier lives, and inspire eachother, they do this for others! Via their online blogs, vlogs, and in-person appearances, these two self-proclaimed health addicts are doing their part to share the (health) love by disseminating tips, tricks, and ideas on getting healthy, living healthy, and staying healthy, together.

Here is their latest Vlog posting, as a testament to what they do:

Just as WG is known and loved for sharing all-things-wedding, I put forth this all-things-health as a source of inspiration for all of you.. .all of us… who only get one chance to do it right with our health – so we may as well start now! (and what better way to do it than with these two lovebirds cheering us along!)

Thanks, Marta and Brock, for being such an inspiration.. without even realizing it!

(and the entire WG family!)

Bridecast! | Wedding Day Floral Design with Fleurish Design Studio!

When I first created WeddingGirl.ca, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the insanely talented Jessica from Fleurish Design Studio. Jessica is not only one of the most talented floral stylists whose work I’ve seen featured at weddings I’ve planned, but her sincerity, kindness, and genuine warmth has made her one of my favourite vendors that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with!

Wedding day floral choices tend to be very overwhelming for any bride. What colours? what shapes? which designs? – these are all questions that any florist should be able to answer, but that take a floral stylist to design and match to your own personality and unique, creative style. In today’s Bridecast, Jessica tells us about making your flowers your own!

Bridecast! | with Peter Trajkovski from Edgewater Manor

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet with Peter Trajkovski, a Sommelier and the Director of Operations at Edgewater Manor Restaurant in Stoney Creek, Ontario.

Nestled along the southern shore of beautiful Lake Ontario, Edgewater Manor fuses impeccable style with subtle perfection. This stunning historic mansion, with its old world interior, embraces your wedding guests in an evening of elegance, charm, and lavish beauty. Edgewater allows brides to plan a picturesque wedding ceremony among its perfectly manicured gardens, with the simplistic elegance of a waterfront backdrop. Following your ceremony, invite guests to mingle with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while you take photos around the property. After dinner, invite your guests outside once more for your moonlit first dance as husband and wife, enveloped in the romance of a starry night.

Here’s what Peter had to tell us about what makes Edgewater Manor so different, so special, and simply magical…
