Adorable Engagement Photo Idea: Paint War

Story by Taylor Weik.

Typically, newly-engaged couples opt to send out their “Save the Date”s on fine stationary with elegant calligraphy. Jagdeep and Jasleen decided to take their engagement to the next level by smothering their announcement on a white wall with paint.

New York City-based wedding photographer Amandeep Nagpal of A.S Nagpal Photography, who shot the couple’s messy, bright engagement photos, fell in love with the idea after Jagdeep suggested bringing paint into the shoot.

Nagpal brought his studio setup to the indoor location, laid out cans of vibrant paint and brushes, and let the paint war commence between the white-clad couple.

“I love couples that want to go the extra mile to help create something fun and different,” Nagpal wrote on his photography website.

MUST SEE: The Most Elaborate Marriage Proposal in History

Back in a time long, long ago, marriage proposals were simple ordeals. You would bring your partner to some place special, get down on one knee, promise the world to them and just like that you were engaged. Simple right?

Well the rise in social media has made marriage proposals everything but simple. Now that we can all see each other’s method of proposing, expectations have shot up. As much as we hate to admit it, we now have grand daydreams of the extravagant moment when our hand will be asked in marriage. This leaves our poor suitor to shake their head at every new marriage proposal that goes viral. What is it this time? A proposal via hot air balloon? A flashmob? Fireworks? Whatever it may be, you can bet it’s elaborate.

A few months ago, we posted a video that turned heads. A woman asked her boyfriend to marry her with her own elaborate planning. But now, we’ve found a proposal that gives the phrase “over-the-top” a new meaning.

Creator of history’s most elaborate marriage proposal is Justin Baldoni. He arranged for his then-girlfriend, Emily Foxler , to meet him at the restaurant where they had their first date. There she finds a giant projected video of her soon-to-be groom explaining that he is not standing her up. He’s doing the opposite.

And this begins a 27-minute long proposal including everything from music videos, flashmobs, and movie trailers. Is it squeal-worthy or is it cringe-worthy? Some women are left in joyful tears and ask if Baldoni has a twin brother. Others have commented, “It makes those last 12 scenes of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy seem positively succinct, and it crosses the line between devoting noticeable time and effort to something and wasting half of your soon-to-be fiancee’s evening.”

Whatever your opinion may be, Baldoni succeeded with getting his love to accept his very epic proposal. Baldoni tells Inside Edition, “I am someone who I loves grand gestures. I love expressing my love in big ways.”

Even more surprising is the guest appearance of Korean American actor James Kyson. The 27-year-old, who is most known for his character Ando Masahashi on the NBC television series Heroes, is a must see in this video. Kyson dancing to Nsync, Boy II Men and Dancing Queen? Check it out for yourself:

 

One Direction’s Zayn Malik May Have A Muslim Wedding

Last month, hearts were heard breaking worldwide when popular One Direction member, Zayn Malik, proposed to his longtime girlfriend Perrie Edwards.

Although it has only been about a month since the engagement, the 20-year-old Pakistani Brit heartthrob and his bride-to-be have apparently already begun to plan their wedding.

Rumors have been spreading left and right. Some insist that the pair have decided on a summer wedding. It is also said that Malik plans to spend more than £1 million, and the wedding will be held in either Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin or in Skibo Castle in Scotland.

Heat reports that Edwards has been in discussion with Chinese American designer, Vera Wang, for her wedding dress.

To add to the excitement, the couple are looking to incorporate both religions (Christian and Muslim) into their wedding.

“Zayn’s mom Patricia converted to Islam when she married Yaser [Zayn's dad], so Perrie’s been asking about what this involves. She’s hoping to talk over her plans with a priest and a Muslim officiant,” a source told Look. “She loves the idea of coming down the aisle to traditional Muslim music. Flowers blessed with rosewater play a big part in Islamic weddings and Perrie thinks she could work this into their day, too.”

Asian American Proposal Video: Girl Asks Guy to Marry Her — and Gets a Surprise Instead

If there’s one thing we can never get sick of here at Audrey – it’s wedding proposal videos. In the latest edition of adorable and heart wrenching wedding proposal videos – Vicky decides to take a step to where not many woman have ventured before – propose to her boyfriend of eight years. Jon had proposed to her more than once before, but she had always turned him down since she wasn’t ready before. Well, what better way to let him know that she was ready – by proposing herself.

Props to you Vicky – you’re one courageous woman. On the sweet side of it, Jon also has a surprise for her as well. Watch on!

(On a side note, is it just me, but the usage of ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri gets me EVERYTIME.)

This is the Best Slow-Motion Wedding Video Set to ‘Blurred Lines’ EVER (You have to watch it!)

I’m a sucker for wedding videos. Ones that include touching speeches, wacky father-daughter dance sequences, wedding party dance sequences – you name it. However, this particular video has been making the rounds today – and for good reason.

The guys over at Super Frog Saves Tokyo (haha, love the name) put together this video compilation of the slow motion video booth they set up at the wedding of Quang and Ellie. I mean, what kinds of things could happen at a slow motion booth? Watch the video – and you’ll be pleasantly amused.

And hopefully you aren’t sick of this year’s summer anthem “Blurred Lines” just yet, but it’s the perfect song choice for the things that go down in this video.

Enjoy!

Wedding Dresses Go Black With Vera Wang

If I had to choose one, this would probably be my favorite. Not that I would wear it, but I do like the two-tone to the dress with the lace overlay. The overall design is just very flattering and unique. Plus it’s the least gloomy-looking.

This would probably work better for a red carpet event in my opinion.

The dress’s silhouette and color contrast creates so much drama that it wouldn’t be easy to pull off.

All I can say is… at least it’s not all black!

This has to be my least favorite since from far it actually looks kind of cheap (sorry Vera!) and that’s not how a Vera Wang dress is supposed to look like! The details cannot be seen and the shape is not the most flattering.

Again, I feel this dress is also more appropriate for a fancy party or show rather than a wedding. Who wants to get married looking so dark and gloomy?
