Dear Monday, Last Monday we were hanging out with 11 other wedding filmmakers talking about all things business while filming for our brand new course – The Business of Wedding Filmmaking! We seriously can’t WAIT to share this one with you guys! If you’re interested in being one of the first to know when enrollment opens up, sign up here!

Dear Holiday Season, You are upon us and I almost can’t believe it. I feel like it was JUST Summer and here we are almost to Christmas. Maybe the unseasonably warm temperatures have just kept me in denial about how fast this year has gone by! Our house is still decked out in pumpkins and I’m going to fully relish in all things fall until after Thanksgiving. BUT, you will catch me listening to Christmas music to fill the void of all things festive until then! There ain’t no shame in my game! 

Dear Asheville, You’re eclectic and a little quirky but seriously such a quaint little town. We enjoyed our quick little trip with my parents to check off some Fall Bucket List items this weekend! We started off with hiking Mount Mitchell…in the POURING rain. It was by far the most strenuous hike I’ve ever been on with the majority of the climb being straight up and all on rocks. Getting to the top felt like sweet, sweet victory. That is until Momma couldn’t find us along the parkway because there was no cell service and the fog was so incredibly thick she could barely see in front of her face. NBD, 2 hours later, she finally found us and we rejoiced in the sweet stench of sweat and togetherness for the hour long trek back to the hotel! And then we all thanked the good Lord above that we weren’t actually camping because of how miserable we would have been. The next morning we got up extra early and headed to Biscuit Head for breakfast and it was DELISH! They had vegan options which made this dairy allergy laden girl THRILLED! Sweet potato gravy anyone? It was SO good! We ended the afternoon touring the Biltmore and the winery and loved every minute of it! The Biltmore is already decorated for Christmas which added an additional festive flair which we all loved! I highly recommend Asheville if you’re ever looking for a fun weekend road trip destination!

Dear Philly, We’re coming for you! Ty and I are shooting our last wedding of our 2017 season this weekend in Philly and we can’t wait!! We’re also doing something we’ve never done before – we’re hosting a meet up for local Filmmakers!! So if you’re local to the Philly area, come join us for drinks and apps at City Tap House at 3PM! If you’ve ever wanted to get connected to other filmmakers in the biz offline, this is your chance! We’ll just be hanging out and would love to connect with you! If you’ll be joining us, shoot me an email at ashley@theherrintons.com so that we know how many people to expect!!

Thanks Katelyn for the background image!!

Dear Ty, Remember that one time the time changed and we gained an hour of sleep? But then I didn’t know what time it was for days? Last night we got home super late from driving back from my parent’s house after driving back from Asheville and I literally thought it was 1AM. We unpacked the car, unpacked our suitcases and got ready for bed. When I finally looked at the clock, I was fully expecting it to be 2AM. It was only 11:30PM. Time changes are WEIRD!

Happy Monday friends! We’re gearing up for another busy week around here but have some fun stuff coming your way! Stay tuned!!


The idea for Dear Monday developed from a deep love for storytelling. Letter writing kept us close in spirit though thousands of miles kept us physically apart for quite a while throughout our dating relationship. This became the foundation for what our business was built upon. The idea that “true love can go the distance”. And even the seemingly small things like a simple note here or there, two hearts can be connected and a story can be written that is so much more beautiful than our minds can simply dream up.
