Are you ready for jumpsuit wedding gowns?

Are you ready for the wedding jumpsuit?

Posted by | Inspiration | No Comments

The new trend in weddings seem to become jumpsuits. They’re even a fashion staple in the closet of reality TV stars the Kardashian sisters. But this year, they’ll be seen in a whole new way: on women walking down the aisle.

“We are seeing a lot of destination brides considering the jumpsuit, a lot of brides who are getting married for the second time,” said Keijia Minor, editor-in-chief of Brides magazine. “The wedding jumpsuit will flatter many figures and will be within reach of a range of budgets.”

So who is wearing jumpsuits to their weddding? We’ve seen Kim Zolciak of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in this look to her recent wedding to NFL player Kroy Biermann.

Designers of wedding jumpsuits include J.Crew, Lanvin, Rivini and Victoria Kyriakides and Vera Wang Debuts Pink Wedding Dress Collection at Bridal Fashion Week.

“I actually think they’re really cute and it’s really awesome. Brides are taking a twist on the classic bridal silhouette,” Alex Arechiga said. But Cheryl Shapiro disagrees. Strongly. “When I think of a jumpsuit I think of flying out of an airplane or something,” she said.

If you like the idea of the jumpsuit but are too traditional to wear it down the aisle on your wedding day, Minor said the garment may be worn at another wedding-related occasion, such as by the bride-to-be at the rehearsal dinner or brunch the day after the wedding.

Formula 1 wedding proposal

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

Lotus F1’s Nick Hayes proposed to Red Bull Racing’s Kerry Arnold last night before the Singapore Grand Prix and it was absolutely adorable. They met through F1 so it was more than fitting to have the proposal right there at the circuit just when (what it looks like) Kerry was just ready/done with a jog.

This picture tweeted out by Red Bull shows the proposal spelled out on a pit board sign.

A couple with amazing movie themed engagement photos

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

When you’re a professional wedding photographer, there’s a lot of pressure to get the perfect shots of your own nuptials. So when photographer Joshua Watson and his then-girlfriend Rachel, who works in video production, wanted to take engagement photos for their June 1 union, they went above and beyond the typical photo shoot.

Joshua and Rachel worked with Jordan Nakamura, Joshua’s college roommate and a fellow photographer, to recreate seven posters from movies and TV shows.

Each poster stars the happy couple in the lead roles, with clever wordplay in the title. To make the posters look as official as possible, they filled the name slots for supporting actors and actresses with everyone who helped make their wedding happen — their parents, wedding party, clergy, planner, florists, clothing designers and more.

“We both felt somewhat burnt out on the traditional approach toward wedding and engagement photography. It seems a little ‘cut-and-pasted’ to us,” Joshua wrote in an email to Mashable. “We wanted our engagement and wedding to be the first time we actually collaborated and created something together and decided to produce this.”

The project took six months to complete. The final images were used as DVD covers, which were sent to all guests in place of traditional paper invitations.

Check out the Academy Award-worthy photos below.
