This is one of our favorite things all week: This clever groom-to-be decided to propose to his high school sweetheart on their seventh anniversary—inside a photo booth!

I mean, I’m not sure I have ever once successfully posed for all four pictures inside one of those things—for some reason figuring out the timing feels like rocket science, and at least one of the pictures is always a mess—and somehow this guy managed to time his proposal so that all four pictures capture the whole event absolutely perfectly.

A Guy In an Elmo Suit Proposed to His Girlfriend Last Night On Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Last night, as I was puttering around getting ready for bed, I heard Jimmy Kimmel announce from my television screen that we were about to watch a proposal go down on his stage.

Here’s Why You Should Maybe Think Twice Before Involving Animals in Your Wedding Photos

This morning we came across a headline about a South Carolina bride who got thrown off a horse while posing for her wedding photos, and while I cringed at the thought of such a thing happening, I wasn’t at all surprised.

After all, what can you expect when you hop on the back of a random, unprepared horse that happens to stroll through your photo shoot? And why would you take that risk on perhaps the biggest day of your life when you’re already dolled up and wearing your dress?
