Enjoy an oldie but goodie today! This wedding, captured on film by the talented folks at Three Ring Media in Atlanta, displays just how beautiful sibling love can be and one can only imagine that the love between twins is another kind of special. Be prepared: Tissue might be needed for this one, too.
Cousin Mars posts typically go up on the last Friday of the month but got pushed back a little last week because of Triple B’s 3rd Anniversary celebration! This is a touchy one, y’all. I look forward to reading your feedback (whether you agree or disagree) in the comments.
Ultimatums in romantic relationships are often joked about. In fact, many people in my circle have been on the receiving end. As I get older (not old, just older) I find more and more associates sharing stories of some pretty bold ultimatums. These have ranged from cohabitating, marriage, having children and a myriad of others. As recent as two weeks ago, while interviewing for a Triple B post last week, I was told about an ultimatum that led to a proposal. [Read more...]

The “Here Comes the Bride” sign carrier is adorable. The snippets of the couple and their guests offering commentary throughout the video remind me of Three Ring Media‘s fresh documentary style videography. The bride is freakin’ gorgeous. And I love that she kept her hair curly for her wedding day. The venue is so charming (I have a thing for at-home weddings…This home happens to belong to actor/singer Tyrese but it was intimate and magical; not pretentious.) The song selections were kinda perfect. The groom has a palpable sense of humor and it was allowed to shine in this video. Did I mention the bride is gorgeous? It seemed as though all the guests were genuinely beaming with happiness for the couple.
Don’t believe any of this or think I’m exaggerating? Just watch. [Read more...]
Is it after one year? Is it after he introduces you to mom? How about when he is comfortable enough to say “I love you” in the presence of his friends? Oh yeah…this one is good…what about after he gives you a key to his place? Having many close friends of the opposite sex, I’ve been amazed at the types of clues some women looked for to determine if their significant other was indeed ready for marriage. Being a dude that has been on more than just a few dates (____ READ HERE ____), I can tell you that none of the previously mentioned clues is enough to think that he is ready for that leap.

Choosing a bridal party is a significant step in planning your wedding. Some opt to forego an entourage and keep the focus of the big day on the two coming together as one. As has become par for our course, Mr. DrummerBoy and I went about choosing our wedding day companions in a completely different manner.
