On Saturday, Kim and Yeezy were at the wedding of their friend and club owner David Grutman, when ‘Ye got up and reenacted his infamous and obnoxious interruption of Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, with magazine publisher/wedding toaster Jason Binn playing the part of T-Swift:
The couple: Dana Ross and Alex Veston, from Delran.
The ring: My ring has a round diamond set in white gold with a diamond halo and diamond band. Alex designed it at James Jewelers in Parsippany—he hand-picked the stone in the shop and then they custom-ordered the ring.
We never went shopping together, though I had mentioned I liked round diamonds. It ended up being exactly what I would have picked out if I had gone my self!
From photographer Daniel Fullam:
When you shoot bridal prep at a salon, you can quickly run out of things to photograph, so I took a walk around the salon to see what all was going on.
I found the flower girl relaxing in a little corner in the back. She was completely oblivious to the bridal party chaos, and certainly seemed eager to step in and fill the bride’s shoes!
Well, we couldn’t get enough—each season, designers seem to be whipping up frocks more gorgeous than the last—and since we’re guessing you might feel the same, we’re going to share a few more of her snaps from the past few days. We hope they help you to spy a few things you love, learn about a few things you might not, and start counting down the minutes until your very first dress-shopping appointment.
Take a look:
The couple: Stephanie Vozzi and Jim Emme, from Northeast Philadelphia.
The ring: My ring has a princess-cut single solitaire diamond set on a white-gold band. I had let him know in subtle conversation once or twice that I would love a princess cut solitaire Most days he doesn’t listen to things I babble on about, but he must have saved that comment for when the time came!
Russ from Steven Singer Jewelers helped him pick it out after Jim got the official approval from both sets of my parents.
You know how that first little bit of sunny, mild weather that makes it seem like spring is actually here to stay makes you want to start buying pretty florals and flowy fabrics and espadrilles and crisp white eyelet? It’s not just us, right?
Well, brides, you will be happy to know that BHLDN is very nicely going to help you scratch that itch, because their third honeymoon collection has just launched. In it, you’ll find airy, easy dresses, bridal white bikinis, embellished sandals, delicate lingerie, crocheted tunics, and many, many more items that will suit your warm-weather wedding needs, whether they be for your pre-wedding parties, honeymoon, or the Big Day itself.
The ring: My ring has a cushion-cut diamond set in platinum, with a diamond halo. It’s now my most favorite item that I own, especially because Lex designed the ring by himself, with the help of Peter Cooke at Cooke & Berlinger in Haverford. He met with them a couple of times to look at diamonds and design the perfect ring, and had a great time.
Little did I know that anytime I gush over rings on billboards or magazines, he was secretly taking very diligent mental notes and remembering anything I would say about the rings I liked. (I’m always just talking about things I see and love, I never imagined I was helping him with his proposal!)
There’s a collective gasp let out each year when the data is analyzed, the numbers are crunched, and a new average cost of throwing a wedding in the United States is declared. Why? Because the figure is usually rather large. And it just keeps getting larger.
