Real Wedding: Alexandra Gaudiani & Tracy Bjelland

Le 19 décembre 2016, 08:56 dans Humeurs 0

Here’s what happens when a woman plans a proposal: She rents an oceanfront house in Malibu for the weekend, has fresh flowers delivered, hires a string quartet and an opera singer, and brings in a butler and a chef. Then said woman hands her beloved a flute of Veuve Clicquot and gets down on one knee on the balcony overlooking the Pacific.

That’s how it’s done.

“It was the second-best day of my life,” says Tracy Bjelland, whose then-girlfriend, Alexandra Gaudiani, popped the question in exactly that manner. The first? “My wedding.”

But it was a long and bumpy road to get to yes. When Tracy met Alex at a party at Harvard, she was a freshman and Alex was a senior. “It was definitely fascination at first sight,” Tracy says. “I didn’t know I was gay.” Yet, she admits, “there was something about her.”

They became friends but didn’t go on their first date until right before Alex graduated and moved to Los Angeles. When Tracy came to visit that first summer, both were noncommittal. “We needed a little more time to figure out if it was real,” Alex says.

The two continued to stay connected, though, even after Tracy finished school. Eventually they both knew they wanted to get married. “We just love being together,” Alex says.

Since both sets of their parents had met at Harvard, too, they thought it fitting that the next generation marry there. So they said “I do” at Harvard’s Memorial Church before letting loose at the Harvard Club on 8/8, a meaningful date. “The eights resemble two infinity signs,” Tracy says. “The same symbol, like us as two women.”

A Gorgeous Glass & Crystal Inspired Organic Farm Wedding: Danie & Lin

Le 15 décembre 2016, 07:07 dans Humeurs 0

Nature loving couple Danie & Lin love the outdoors so much they planned an organic inspired, farm wedding with a minimalistic crystal and glass theme – it is so pretty!

With classic white and green flowers, their gorgeous SA wedding is a beautiful inspiration for Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year ‘Greenery’.

We absolutely L O V E D everything about our wedding venue, Florence Guest Farm, in Mpumalanga, South Africa!!! It’s the most amazing place and atmosphere. Nico & Ane owners of the Farm are such great and lovely people and family to work with. It was a weekend wedding, starting from Friday with a Spitbraai and wine, followed by our special wedding day on Saturday and finishing with breakfast on Sunday with all our family and friends. That made it even more special – everything was perfect!! x

We love to be outside, in nature and not to be in the city, and the venue was perfect for that. I’m very minimalistic in style but still want our wedding to be classic, farm-ey and open. Our wedding theme was mainly glass and crystal with a white and green colour scheme for the flowers with long wooden tables. You can never go wrong with glass and your favourite colours.

The moment I tried on my Enzoani wedding dress, I just knew. Between all the other dresses, it made me feel like the most beautiful bride. I LOVED IT!!

…and the first time Danie and I saw each other when entering the chapel, was one of the most memorable moments, there are no words to describe it… We loved every single moment of our special day.

Our wedding photographers are such an amazing couple – Ilze and Sean are so easy going and chill. Lovely to work with. They capture the most incredible images, so natural, stunning and much more – we would definitely recommend them for any type of shoot.

The venue already had most of the things we needed for a wedding, we just added flowers, table decor and a few name boards with messages. Pauline from the venue arranged the flowers bought from the flower market in JHB. My idea was to have a glass/crystal, classic but minimalist wedding theme, the green and white flowers worked perfectly with the glass.

Each guest received a “glass” lollipop wedding favour. The woman also received a small glass bottle with a wishing flower and thank you note – the glass bottle favours were handmade by my Mum.

Our wedding cake was also minimalistic, a white 3 layer cake with different patterns, white orchids, green leaves and glass initials of D&L.

After our creative photo shoot, we took off our wedding shoes and got into navy high top sneakers… for our first dance…

We had an entrance song – ‘Five Hours’ by Deorro to enter and open the dance floor, that was mixed into our first dance of ‘Shut Up and Dance’ by Walk the Moon. ‘Five Hours’ worked perfectly with our first dance song – just the way we wanted it to be.

Glitteralso exploded when opening the dance floor!! and the ‘Shut Up and Dance’ lyrics, ‘this woman is my destiny’ says everything… :)

Shia LaBeouf Married Mia Goth in a Weird, Wild Las Vegas Wedding Ceremony

Le 21 octobre 2016, 11:35 dans Humeurs 0

For a guy who once wore a paper bag over his head on the red carpet, his wedding was pretty standard, actually. According to a live-stream video, actor Shia LaBeouf married his girlfriend of roughly four years, Mia Goth, today in a Las Vegas ceremony officiated by an Elvis impersonator and assisted by a hula dancer. The strip-club-friendly décor included a smoke machine and neon lights. “Oh man,” LaBeouf can be heard saying on the live-stream (why? No clue) as the ceremony begins. He then proceeds to cry as they recite their vows, which end with the bedazzled-bodysuit-wearing Las Vegas showman asking: “Do you both agree to adopt each other’s hound dogs? To not wear your blue suede shoes in the rain? To always be each other’s teddy bears and to give each other a hunk a hunk a burning love? By the power vested in me, The King, I now pronounce you husband and wife.” After a long, passionate kiss, the newlyweds left the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel (adjacent to the Super 8) in a deluxe Caesars-branded stretch limousine.

This wild display of devotion—or performance, we’re not quite sure yet—comes after Goth was seen wearing an engagement ring early last year, just before they were caught on camera publicly screaming at one another. But hey, plenty of young couples get in fights and then run off to Las Vegas to tie the knot, right? Maybe the romance isn’t dead and this will stick—only time will tell. And if it doesn’t, at least we will always have the bizarre memory frozen in time on YouTube.
