Jesse Tombs, managing partner of Alison Events, literally had me at hello. I'm not joking. Instant crush. What can I say - I love warm happy people. He's the kind of guy you want to cozy up next to for a drink and a good laugh. I mean just look at him! He's so cute! That's Alison next to him and by the way, we are equally obsessed with her. Let's just dive into the wedding of Jesse's dream!

Jesse has chosen the Ralph Lauren Anthony Peaked Lapel Tuxedo to strut down the aisle. He would be one sharp dressed man in this tux. We approve Jesse. I know you want to know, so here you go ... it's $2495. Hey, if you can keep your figure for 15 or 20 more years we say go for it! If you want to wear something a little more budget friendly, might we recommend these options from Generation Tux.

Justin Trudeau, ahhhhhhh, he's SO dreamy. I mean DREAMY. Canada’s prime minister is redefining the role of stuffy old politicians. Most of the world has fallen in love with him, maybe with the exception of those who are threatened. Canada, you are so lucky that your leader isn't an orange misogynist bigot. Justin Trudeau is a teacher, a father, an advocate, he named a gender balanced cabinet and he's a great dancer. I realize I'm running the gamut of compliments but whatever, it's my post.
