We are so thrilled to be profiled by Raquel Kelley on her lovely wedding blog I Guess I Do!

I Guess I Do - Raquel Kelly

We love the concept behind her blog: when it comes to weddings as with anything in life, “not everything goes as planned.” She’s after the stories behind the pretty pictures. In particular, the Quotes section on her blog gets straight to those stories, most often told with hilarious quotes from our loved ones!

As with all of our clients, it was a genuine pleasure to be a part of her wedding. Thank you Raquel!

Katy Perry shows off an Emerald Cut Diamond Ring

Yesterday Natalie Finn with E News reported on the massive emerald cut diamond ring that Katy Perry wore to the Elle Style Awards.

Along with an ivory and rose-print Vivienne Westwood silk dress that showed off her bountiful cleavage, Elle’s pick for Woman of the Year was sporting quite the rock on her left hand, a rather traditional-looking piece of jewelry when compared with the turquoise cocktail ring she had on her index finger.

Whether she’s engaged or happily not, the ring is a stunner and worthy of adoration to be sure!
