Heidi Klum divorcing singer Seal after 7 years

Heidi Klum shocked the world with the announcement that she was splitting from husband of seven years, singer Seal recently.  Sadly this news made me think about something…..seal fur.  Then I thought about what if a wedding was done in fur instead of the standard materials. Would Heidi and Seal still be together?

Just saying, if she had worn fur they would have been a better “match” for each other. Wow, this post has gone wrong on so many levels. I should respect the whole concept of marriage shouldn’t I?  This blog is wedding and engagement noise, not divorce noise…. sorry about that. But I know Continue reading

Reese Witherspoon’s wedding dress

3/31/2010 – Update…Reese Witherspoon wore a PINK wedding dress, can’t wait to discover photos of this one.  I don’t think the designer has even ever made a pink one in her past.

After all of these weddings in movies Reese finally broke down and did the real deal this past weekend.  Jim Toth, 40 & Reese Witherspoon, 35, who became engaged in December, tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony at Witherspoon’s ranch estate in Ojai, Calif.   Wish I had a private estate for times like this 🙂

A pre-wedding cocktail hour took place before the 20-minute ceremony, which started a bit late, as most celebrity weddings do. Witherspoon walked down the aisle to “Here Comes the Bride.” Monique Lhuillier designed Reese Witherspoon’s wedding dress as seen below.

Those in attendance included Witherspoon’s children (with her first husband Ryan Phillippe), Ava, 11 and Deacon, 7, as well as 120 guests — including Renee Zellweger, Isla Fisher, Matthew McConaughey and other stars — looked on as Witherspoon swapped vows with CAA agent Toth, 40, in a 20-minute ceremony in front of her rustic country home. A few photographers were blinded by her 4 carat engagment ring during the ceremony (just kidding).  Her Jimmy Choo wedding shoes I’m sure wowed the crowd as you can see below:

A bluegrass band played during the service. Decor details of the country-themed soiree: Lanterns and chandeliers hanging from trees, mismatched antique chairs and distressed benches set throughout the property, a wood plank dance floor, antique leather sofas, jute rugs, wago wheels and Turkish textile pillows.

After the meal, guests boogied on the dance floor to DJ-spun tunes. When it was time to call it a night, drunken wedding goers departed clutching gift bags with pecan currant scones from a local baker.  I doubt the scones were as good as the ones from our local church….of course they only cost about 50 cents. You can’t beat 50 cent scones that are fresh.

Here’s a possible inspiration for Reese Witherspoon’s wedding dress from Monique Lhuillier? Is it close to the real one?

Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie intimate wedding – pictures, photos

Hilary Duff’s weekend wedding to Mike Comrie couldn’t have been more romantic, says her sister Haylie Duff (luck maid of honor too).  “What a special weekend filled with love and beautiful memories,” she Twittered.  The 22-year-old Hilary (in Vera Wang) and the Canadian hockey player, 29, exchanged vows in front of 100 guests & was walked down the aisle by her mother Susan Saturday August 14th, 2010 in an intimate ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif.  She also sported a 14-carat, $1-million dollar diamond engagement ring.

Says a witness, “It was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen. Absolutely stunning. They thought of every last detail and it was an incredible sight. Mike held his arm around Hilary for most of the romantic, candlelit ceremony, and they both looked extremely happy.”

The couple, who began dating in 2007 at a resort in Idaho, got engaged this past February in Hawaii.  The couple exchanged vows at the sprawling Villa La Quinta estate just outside of Santa Barbara and then they spent their first night as a married couple at the famed San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito.

Their honeymoon is sure to be memorable at the Kennedy cottage for $4,000 a night. The Kennedy cottage at the San Ysidro Ranch was the spot where Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie retired to on their wedding night. This cottage is quite famous as it is the spot where John and Jackie Kennedy spent their honeymoon Continue reading

Chelsea Clinton Wedding Photos & Pictures

Congrats to Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky (an investment banker and political offspring) getting married this past weekend on Saturday July 31st, 2010 at Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, NY. The Friday night before wasn’t to hectic either. Crowds gathered outside the Beekman Arms, another hotel fully booked by the wedding party. Guests, including the bride’s parents, were seen heading from a rehearsal dinner to a cocktail party at the local tavern.

Mezvinsky, 32, is Jewish, while Clinton, 30, was raised Methodist, like her mother Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Their Saturday ceremony, which was co-officiated by Rabbi James Ponet, a Jewish chaplain at Yale, and the Rev. William Shillady, a Methodist minister from New York City, was a nod to both their faiths.

It featured many Jewish traditions: the couple married under a chuppah or canopy; the groom wore a yarmulke or skull cap and tallis or prayer shawl; friends and family recited the Seven Blessings typically read at traditional Jewish weddings.

Former president Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton allowed a statement about their “great pride and overwhelming emotion,” and their staff offered a few grace notes about the interfaith ceremony, which was conducted by Rabbi James Ponet and the Rev. William Shillady. (Mezvinsky was raised in the Jewish faith, while Clinton is a Methodist.) Along with their vows, there was a reading of the Seven Continue reading

Chelsea Clinton’s wedding announced to Marc Mezvinsky on July 31st

Chelsea Clinton’s wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky is the hottest event of the summer on July 31st somewhere in New York. Of course to help out her parents Chelsea has said, She must personally know every invitee. There will be only 400 names on the guest list, a good size for a wedding by ordinary standards, but barely big enough to account for all the people Bill Clinton slept with…..hehe. “Donors are expecting to be invited,” says a major Clinton fund-raiser. Then there are the campaign, State Department, and Clinton Foundation staff, plus foreign dignitaries and both Clinton and Obama White House officials. “You really see who their closest friends are in this list,” says an insider. “It’s not a celebrity-driven wedding.

The secrecy has seemed more reminiscent of a covert Iraqi undercover sting than a wedding. Ruomor on the street early was that it would be held on Martha’s Vineyard, but more recently sources have confirmed that the nuptials will be held on July 31 in a still-secret location within a three-hour drive of New York City. Reasoning says that the Hampton’s are not a plausible location because the Long Island Expressway is too long of a road. A more reasonable place for the big event would be somewhere upstate in Westchester or Dutchess County. “The wedding planner will contact each guest directly a week in advance and let them know where it is,” says the fund-raiser, who speculated that the Hamptons are out because the L.I.E. can be a very long road. The smart money, then, is somewhere upstate, possibly in Westchester or Dutchess County—most likely on property owned by a Clinton supporter. ”

Most of the planning is falling on the shoulders of Continue reading

Are wedding cupcakes the new trend instead of cakes?

In general I’ve been noticing a trend in weddings.  People are preferring simple wedding cupcakes over traditional cakes it seems.  I was just reading about Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher (of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators) over at msnbc.

“We’re kind of doing cupcakes,” the country star tells CMT Radio Live’s Cody Alan. “I consider myself a very traditional person. More than anything, we’re going to get married, that’s the important part. And we want everyone to have a good time, so we’re doing some things like that, that are a little bit different.”

Underwood plans on keeping the marriage very private.  “Not to say even anybody would care to show up, but just in case,” Underwood told the AP. “Like anybody, you deserve to get married and have a great day as people. I’m not going to be Carrie Underwood the entertainer walking down the aisle. I’m just Carrie, and I’m going to marry Mike. I feel like that’s kind of a right everybody deserves to have.”

Underwood is ordering the cupcakes from IveyCake at 100 4th Ave N, Franklin, TN 37064, which is run by Ivey Childers — the wife of Underwood’s bass player, Mark Childers. Ivey “makes the most amazing cupcakes in the universe,” Underwood says.  Ironically the website went down for the duration of the day after so many people overwhemled the server.  I’m sure Ivey Childres will more than happt to upgrade her website hosting plan after this.
