{Rhobin’s Nest} A True Love Story

We always talk about preplanned weddings. When everyone is involved in the wedding, from the groom’s family to the brides, the invitations are sent, the linens are picked out, the altar  is set. This wedding, however, was not like any other wedding.outdoor wedding7

Before you read about Rhobin’s fantastic ONE OF A KIND surprise wedding, let me tell you a bit about me and her.

Robin has done a couple of weddings as a photographer for us before and we have become great friends.  She has always talked about this wedding and having me be her planner.  She finally did it and she called us.

For her own wedding, she did the Pick Up Where We Left Off Package and we coordinated a few vendors. Her wedding was rustic and vintage themed and it was so much fun!  We got to even wear Jeans!!!   They had a fire out there because it was a pretty chilly day.  My team and I had a lot of fun, however, on the day of the wedding her DJ decided he wouldn’t be able to make it!

Yikes! Now that called for my quick thinking.  Within 1 hour I found her a DJ that saved the day for us and he was indeed amazing!

Please read Rhobin’s beautiful love story here.. and I’d advice you keep a hanky in hand because later don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

{Sleek, Steel or Silver} Mens Engagement Rings

Times are changing and with that we see a lot of men opting to wear engagement rings as chosen by their better halves. This revelation has been pointed to us by my very dear follower, Jeannie Lawson LeDoux ,who suggested I look into men’s engagement rings. And as I promised, this post is dedicated to all those hunting for the perfect ring for their partner and of course, Jeannie Lawson LeDoux !

Engagement rings not only symbolize life-long commitment but it is a promise and a reminder for both bride to be and groom to be of the journey they will embark upon together. Although it is customary for the bride to be to wear the engagement ring till she weds, but with time, we’re finding more and more grooms deciding to wear them as well.

The trend is quite old, modern men have just started to adopt it. Brazilian and Argentinian culture speaks of couples who both wore engagement rings. So don’t feel yourself left out. There are many like you out there who like to carry this ornament with them to remind them of their commitment.

Stainless steel and titanium are much preferred by men of this era though. So in case you are looking for a ring for your man, ladies, I advice go with simple. With men, sleek is and steel and titanium provide you with just that!

Unless your fiance is an admirer of the Vintage-Victorian era, you need to re-think your decision. For them stones would work. Check whether he is into his own ancestry and if he’s got any vintage ornaments from the era of his ancestors stashed somewhere. Yes? Bingo! That’s your clue!

Is he a nature-lover? Because if he is, stick to simple and hand-made rings. You can find a great collection online or if you will ask your engagement planner to help you out in this manner. It is always to leave this details to the expert to handle.

This Father’s Day, why not do something you’ve never done before: ask the hand in marriage of the girl you love from her father? Sounds scary? Well, it doesn’t have to be. With time, the tradition of asking the parents of the girl in hand for her marriage has completely been erased from our culture. However, the essence is still sweeter as it was before.

To ask or not to ask?

It’s all up to you. Most of the modern men still prefer asking the blessings of the elders in the family before asking the girl they love for her hand in marriage. It shows the cultural value still ingrained in your roots of how much you want to include your family and her family to this grand decision. Of course, absolutely nothing can stop you from marrying the girl you love in these times, so its all on you.

Tradition and Respect

Father’s Day is a special day where you can not only want to do something special for your father but for the father of the woman you intend to marry. It would not only look traditional, but would show how much you respect her family which in turn would earn you her family’s respect. After all, marriage is built on respect and trust and what better way to start this commitment with trust and respect.

Blessings First

Well, to be honest, you really don’t need anyone’s permission in these times to marry someone you love. However, the gist of this gesture is quite simple: you require their blessings. Just like your father matters to you, the woman’s father matters to her as well. And asking the blessings of those who would pray for your prosperity, I don’t think there is any harm in doing so.

Make it Special

If you have indeed decided to take the blessings of the father of your bride-to-be, make it special. And this is where the Father’s Day comes. Make it special, and make sure you are utmost confident. You WANT to show him that you care for his daughter as much as he has been doing so all these years and you are 100% committed to this.
