Mr. Jose Villa, you know, the one and only. The master of light and film. Yes, that's him. Jose creates the kind of images that make you want to get married. He evokes emotion you didn't know you had even for perfect strangers and most importantly, he's a genuinely nice person. Can you tell we love him? Not only a renowned photographer, but a teacher and a pillar of the wedding community. We are on board with Joy's pick for her dream photographer.
Joy has chosen the Pink Diamond by Harry Winston from Christies. It sold for a cool $3.64 million. Well, we love pink and if Joy loves this ring we are definitely going to look for the Etsy wedding budget version of this ring. This pink engagement ring is a little more in our budget and still really, really pretty.

France, you say? Oui! Oui to this incredible venue! Très jolie! The Chateau Vaux le Vicomteby by candlelight could be the most romantic venue we've seen.
The architect Louis Le Vau was already widely celebrated when Fouquet called on his services in 1653. As the King’s “Principal Architect,” he had erected a number of Parisian mansions including the Hôtel Lambert. Considered the greatest ambassador of the Italianate style in France, Le Vau also drew inspiration from classical antiquity. Drawing on these traditional sources, he then created a powerful new style of his own, starting with Vaux-le-Vicomte – and thus lay the foundations of French architecture for the next 150 years.

Idris Elba. Well, hello Idris. Stone cold fox. Handsome. Eye candy. Meow. I don't really have the words to express his hotness. If you do, please help me. This visual perfection graces the silver screen for your viewing pleasure. Not only is he British, but he was also a DJ when he was just a lad. DJ Big Driis - you can still spin for me. He's not nearly active enough for us on Instagram, but nonetheless check him out!
