The emotional moments, first looks, the vows, the music, the stunning cinematography—what’s not to love about wedding videos? At Love Stories TV, we obviously love to watch (and cry over) wedding videos—it’s literally our job!

Watch every award-winning film below for the absolute best wedding planning inspiration and, don’t worry, we won’t judge if you find yourself reaching for the tissues!
This. video. has. everything! From added clips of the proposal and their late beloved grandparents to the couple’s emotional vows and epic backdrop—we were hooked on this wedding. We love how weddings like this break the mold—the couple had a completely outdoor wedding (camping may have even been included), yet details like Chloe’s incredible Leanne Marshall wedding dress brought the glam to the desert.

When Alice and Jack started dating, Alice was actually already pregnant with her daughter. Jack stepped up, became her father and the bond between this little family is so clear and strong, we can’t help but tear up when they talk about their love for each other—it didn’t hurt that Jack was choking up as well!

There’s just something special about international destination weddings. You likely traveled hours to get to your venue and you’re about to cement it into your life and memory as this incredibly special place. Plus, how can you beat a French chateau? It doesn’t get much more romantic than that—and the couple’s gorgeous, over-the-top attire fits in so perfectly.

When you pair a blogger and entrepreneur (Curissa De’Leon) with a NFL/CFL veteran (Brandyn Thompson), you’re sure to have a pretty incredible love story, not to mention wedding! These two tied the knot in California, but that didn’t stop them from kicking off their reception with a surprise New Orleans-style second line parade.

Some people may not realize just how important music really is when it comes to wedding videos, but think of how much time you may have spent (or will spend) choosing that *perfect* first dance song. Our filmmakers put that much thought into their soundtracks and we can’t think of a song that would better fit this epically, fun, quirky elopement! Seriously, as this video starts, we’re basically dancing along with Anna. Watch more wedding videos by The Quail & The Dove and contact them about your wedding here.
Some of our favorite wedding videos are the ones that have both emotional and full-on party moments. It’s clear we’re not the only ones who love these films as this one received the most votes from our audience as their top choice in a category of seriously good wedding videos. From Megan Rapinoe’s cameos to Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris’s stylish wedding attire, these brides clearly had a wedding that was totally unique and personalized for them—in our opinion, these make for the best weddings.

The fun of international wedding videos is getting to see the culture, scenery and traditions of a place perhaps unfamiliar to you. And when we say this wedding video brings it…oh, it BRINGS it! Not only does it showcase some festive customs, but you can feel the couple’s joy radiating from the screen. You have to watch it to believe it!

Those transitions, that opening, this wedding video reminds us why cinematography is truly an ART. Seriously, when a filmmaker takes a quote from the couple and allows it to guide them to *this* beautiful level of art—um, hi, look at that sky—you know they’re insanely talented.
