PW Reader Ring: Kristin & Zachary!

Kristin's ring!

Kristin’s ring!

The couple: Kristin Reiley and Zachary Safris from Philadelphia.

The ring: My ring is a morganite center stone surrounded by diamonds and set in white gold.

I had done some ring research, knowing we’d probably get engaged soon and that I wanted something different. I came across morganites and thought they were gorgeous, and that they also had a great meaning to them. I found a jeweler I loved—SamNSue out of Hawaii—through Instagram, and that’s where Zachary ended up getting my ring.

You Have to Watch This Bride’s Sisters Sing Their Seriously Epic Mashup Wedding Toast (Video)

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a wedding toast so clever and impressive and fun and awesome that it’s made our day, and here, ladies and gentleman, is one that just did that for us and will do just that for you: It’s sisters Kelsey and Maddie Hallerman singing their maids-of-honor toast to their sister, Caitlyn, and her new groom, John.

For starters, we’ve got Tracy Chapman, Michael Jackson, Backstreet Boys, and a rendition of “Oh Happy Day” that rivals the one in Sister Act 2. The looks on their sister and especially their new brother-in-law’s faces are so perfect. What a toast. Enjoy:

If you need us, we’ll be over here watching it again.

I am also one of the many people who lost all feeling in their knees last night when Jimmy described what happened to him and his wedding ring, and who nodded along in confirmation when he warned the people of the world not to Google “ring avulsion”:

Audrey's ring!

Audrey’s ring!

The couple: Audrey Johnson and Johnny Caputo from Philly.

The ring: My ring is actually Johnny’s grandmother’s white-gold engagement ring with additional diamonds added to it. He went to Helzberg and also a small local jeweler to put the ring together.

I knew he was planning to propose because he didn’t keep the ring planning a secret entirely; he had also asked me to show him what I’d prefer, style-wise. But I had no idea when it was coming.
