    Old World Charm At This Elegant Wedding In Hawaii

    Sometimes there’s really nothing more that needs to be done if you’ve chosen the perfect venue for your wedding. For these newlyweds, it was the Haiku Mill – a once abandoned sugar mill that gently fell into ruin, resulting in the most beautiful décor only Mother Nature and Father Time can produce. Lush vegetation and long vines covered the thick stonewalls, bringing a touch of old world romance to the entire wedding. Surrounded by the gilded vessels, soft natural colours and glamorous chandeliers, this couple and their loved ones certainly made it a wonderful night to remember.

    Rambo Day: The Ultimate, Most Kickass Bachelor Party Ever

    This really brings the bachelor party to a whole new level. A bunch of mates put together a surprise Rambo-themed bachelor party for Dana Saint, who is obsessed with Sylvester Stallone in Rambo. And from the looks of this action packed video, it was a day of guns, explosions, booze and lots of laughter of course. “Throwing over-the-top bachelor parties was never a life goal. It just sort of happened. Dana has always been the centerpiece for every bachelor party, so for him, we knew that everything needed to get kicked up a couple notches,” said Dan Riordan, mastermind and good friend of the groom-to-be.

    Engagement Photos Taken With Self-Timer Function

    Ceri and Daniel found it more comfortable to take their own bridal portraits. We’re sure a lot of couples feel the same way, but not many would have attempted what they did and do it so excellently. The colour coordination and every single frame seem to be very well planned. They should both really consider changing careers. Do check out the video that they put together too – it is such an adorable video. Ceri: “We took our own engagement pictures using a camera and its self-timer function. Taking ‘selfies’ was less stressful and more natural for us compared to posing in front of another person. The other advantage was…

    Modern Chic Wedding

    Gorgeous is an understatement for this bold black and white wedding. The extra shades of purple and gold are just matches made in heaven.
