Can we all just be honest and admit that engagement pictures are pretty cheesy? Come on, admit it! Sure they are beautiful and a testament to the love of the bride and groom-to-be, but they are also staged and kind of sort of a little bit goofy. I'm probably just too insecure to strike one of the poses without feeling like a total moron. My beloved and I didn't even take engagement photos because it didn't occur to us and if it had it would have been the worst photo session ever. That is why I am in love with what I would have to say are THE BEST ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS EVER!
San Francisco couple Cassey Grim and Adam McLaughlin had their engagement photos taken by friend Red Scott. The couple was photographed individually instead of together with the groom-to-be striking the same poses as his future wife. If she's coy, he's coy; if she's fetching, he's fetching; if she's seductive, yup, you got it...he's seductive.Continue Reading >

When it comes time to propose, most picture the big moment as being romantic, memorable and, as close to perfect as possible. But sometimes, things don't go exactly as planned.
Take for example, the guy in the clip below, who tried to pop the question to his girlfriend on the beach near the water.

Map websites, like Google Maps, can be really helpful. Using them can assist you in looking up addresses, finding directions ... and catching your man in a lie? That's exactly what happened to Russian woman Marin Voinova.
She was recently using Yandex Maps (essentially a slightly different version of Google's) "street view" feature to view a specific address when she spotted a man who looked an awful lot like her boyfriend of five years and then-fiancé, Alexander. The problem? He had his arms around a woman who was definitely not her.
Yikes!Continue Reading >

It's one thing to have a threesome between three consenting adults in the privacy of one's home, but it's a whole other gigantic mess to publicly broadcast that you would really, really like a threesome with your fiancée and her best friend. Um, talk about an awkward meeting and subsequent wedding?!
