Kevin Jonas & Danielle Deleasa Jonas new wedding rings

Wanted to write about this one since the wedding rings chosen were so beautiful to me.  You see, Kevin Jonas & Danielle Deleasa Jonas have exchanged vows at their extravagent ceremony this past Saturday at the Oheka Castle in Long Island. Despite a blizzard blanketing the roads around the castle, the wedding went forward without a hitch, and the bride, escorted by her father Thomas “Bucky” Deleasa, walked down the aisle to “Bella Notte,” from Lady and the Tramp, played on the guitar by a friend of the Jonas family.  Now comes all the fine details about the custom built Jacob & Co. wedding rings.

According to a release from the jeweler, Danielle’s wedding band was constructed out of 18 carat white gold. The stones you see flanking the entire ring are round-cut brilliant diamonds totaling 3.83 carats.

Married Couple on So You Think You Can Dance – AMAZING!!

So You Think You Can Dance married couple Ashleigh and Ryan Di Lello brought the judges to tears in last night’s last show. They weren’t the only ones. My husband said it was beautiful but could not uderstand why I was pulling the kleenex out like cash from an ATM. I answered, “You can see how much they love each other…booohoooo…booohooo…..” Well anyway, it was an awesome show and I have included the highlight of their tryouts on YouTube below.

The couple performed a contemporary dance number to Michelle Featherstone’s “I’m There Too”, exchanging “heart felt” glances throughout with both ending in tears. Of course we know she is crying since she made purely from her husband’s remarks the week before. I really liked Legacy and am kinda bummed he was kicked out. He may not have been as good as the others but I felt emotionally connected to him. Continue reading

Chelsea Clinton announces engagement by e-mail?

Update – July 31st, 2010 – Check out the pictures from Chelsea Clinton’s wedding here.

Couldn’t she have just updated her facebook status to “Engaged” and got the media circus going crazy just for fun?

Chelsea Clinton and longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky are engaged, the two announced on Nov. 27, 2009. In a mass email to friends and family, the couple said they are looking to get married until next summer. A Clinton spokesman said he believed the couple got engaged on Thanksgiving in New York, according to multiple reports. Clinton, 29, and Mezvinsky became friends in Washington and attended Stanford University together

Here’s a copy of the e-mail:

“We’re sorry for the mass e-mail but we wanted to wish everyone a belated Happy Thanksgiving! We also wanted to share that we are engaged! We didn’t get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us. Happy Holidays! Chelsea & Marc.”

I am pleased that Chelsea is respecting the Clinton’s wishes of “Don’t get married before you’re 30” edict. She’s 29 now, but with a February birthday she’ll hit the magic number in plenty of time for the summer wedding. Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said he believed the engagement happened “before Thanksgiving.” Others close to Clinton also indicated the engagement happened earlier and was only announced Friday.

Mezvinsky is a son of former Pennsylvania Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky and former Iowa Rep. Ed Mezvinsky, longtime friends of the Clintons.  It will be an interfaith marriage; Mezvinsky is Jewish, while Clinton grew up attending Methodist Church with her mother. Bill Clinton is Southern Baptist.  Former White House Press Secretary Mike McCurry describes Chelsea as “poised, professional, and personable daughter of a marriage that Continue reading

Penelope Cruz is reportedly shopping around for a designer to make her wedding gown.  According to In Touch Weekly, the 35-year-old actress, who is reportedly engaged to actor Javier Bardem, has been meeting with her favorite designers in preparation for the couple’s rumored wedding.  “Since she and Javier are from Spain, she’d love to have a Spanish designer create her dream gown,” a friend mentioned.

Cruz is said to be considering the House of Balenciaga, who designed best friend Salma Hayek’s gown for her wedding with billionaire François-Henri Pinault in February.

“Salma’s dress was specifically designed for her by the company’s creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, and it was just beautiful,” added the source. “I’m sure they would be more than thrilled to create a gown for Penelope.”

Cruz, 35, and Bardem, 40, have yet to officially announce their engagement, but the actress was spotted wearing a sapphire ring on her engagement finger when she recently appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman.” See the picture below:
