It’s long overdue since Cousin Mars has already blessed us with tips for a memorable best man toast for the groom…The bride deserves her shine too! Read, share and enjoy. [Read more...]

I found the above message on Instagram a couple weeks back and thought it was profound. So much so that I needed to share. It is easy (too easy) to get caught up in the rings, the gown, the flowers, the reception music, and the 18,000 other things that even the most focused engaged couple can forget the true point of it all.
Read. Digest. Comment. (Even if you disagree.)
One of the most anticipated weddings of the year finally happened — actress Gabrielle Union and basketball all-star Dwyane Wade got hitched on Saturday, August 30. The dynamic duo wed in their home city of Miami at the Chateau Artisan castle in a black-and-white themed affair. The bride’s BFF Essence Atkins served as the couple’s officiant. The newlyweds were adamant about not having a traditional wedding party, however, celeb buddies such as Carmelo and LaLa Anthony, Chris and Jada Paul and Kevin Hart were in attendance. [Read more...]
We all remember BET’s hit reality show The Family Crews. Terry and Rebecca Crews welcomed us in their L.A. home, making us all feel like family. But what happened when the cameras stopped rolling? Triple B chatted with Mrs. Rebecca Crews about getting and staying married. Rebecca, who is refreshingly down to Earth, is clear that her husband did not become the man that he is overnight but in practicing commitment, compassion, and communication they held on. Terry and Rebecca are the proud parents of five children and celebrated 25 years of marriage on July 29, 2014. This is their story… [Read more...]
Don’t believe the headline? Just watch for yourself below. Oh and word on the street is that the couple, who has had their relationship under quite a bit of scrutiny since getting engaged, also mailed out traditional paper save-the-dates with a heart motif back in May. Smart to have both just in case some folks — i.e. Nana and ‘em — aren’t feeling the digital correspondence for such an important day. [Read more...]
It was early in the planning process when I found out that I’d have to set priorities when it came to spending. In order to stay in budget, I would not be able to splurge on every detail. I’d have to find savings here and there and be willing to compromise.
Hola! Tie the Knot Tuesday and Not Quite Tie the Knot Tuesday will return soon, folks. I know, I know — but trust that Triple B is working on some good stuff in the meantime and it includes featuring a bunch of great love stories, weddings, videos and engagement pictures. Today however, we’re switching things up a bit. [Read more...]
The first thing I did when I started the planning process was to decide on a color scheme and a theme.I immediately knew that I wanted an evening wedding full of romance and candle light. I’m also a fan of all things modern and classic. My venue fit my personality and my vision perfectly. Next to a beach, my wedding will be full of ocean views, sunsets and romance…a few of my favorite things.
When deciding on a color scheme, I had a bit of a trickier time. [Read more...]
New York couple Lauren and Frantz are scheduled to wed on a Caribbean beach hence their decision to have part of their e-session on…wait for it…a beach! In addition, the fun duo headed to a sneaker store for the second part of their photo session because that’s how they met. Cute, right?! Lauren actually worked at shoe store and now Frantz has his own sneaker and apparel company. Enjoy their pics!
Last weekend hip-hop star and actress Eve officially tied the knot!

Reports say the couple exchanged vows during sunset beach nuptials in front of guests who were asked to dress in elegant beach attire. A series of bonding events were carefully planned for guests to enjoy the days leading up to the ceremony including a pool party and champagne toast rehearsal dinner. [Read more...]
Although it may seem trite, sometimes a picture — or in this case a video — is truly worth a thousand words. There’s not a lot of commentary needed. Enjoy, folks! [Read more...]
I’m a huge gift person. I love to give and receive. I knew gift giving was my love language without even taking the quiz. Leonard knows this about me, and as much as he tries to deny me gifts, when it really counts he always comes through. So I was beyond ecstatic when right after I picked out my wedding dress he told me that his wedding gift to me would be my wedding shoes! I immediately started searching for the perfect pair.
