I was already totally enamored with everything about Solange Knowles’ wedding this weekend in New Orleans — the jumpsuit! the bridal party photo! arriving by bicycle! — and that was before I saw this video of her dancing with son Julez. Because Solange likes to turn the traditional on its head, the twosome (Julez is Solange’s 10-year-old son from a previous relationship) took to the floor for their mother/son dance and tore it up, working some pretty solid choreography to the song “No Flex Zone.” It is adorable and just perfect.

Amal Alamuddin, a 36 year old London-based dual-qualified English barrister and New York litigation attorney who has long been a high-profile figure in international refugee and human rights law has gone against the trend for professional women in her field and married… an actor.
This is how the website The Business Woman Media starts off its post about “internationally acclaimed barrister” Amal Alamuddin’s wedding to an actor by the name of George Clooney this weekend. Much hullabaloo has been made about the notorious bachelor finally settling down, as if his bride has struck gold, but let’s face it, with her many degrees, fluency in multiple languages, and an impressive career in international law, Alamuddin could easily be described as out of Clooney’s league. Kudos to The Business Woman Media for flipping the script on the way celeb weddings are typically reported. Oh, and of course, congratulations to Mrs. and Mr. Alamuddin on their nuptials!

People and Hello! magazines have exclusive photos from the long-awaited Brangelina wedding, and while I’m getting a funny feeling in my underpants looking at the hottest couple in the universe make out, I’m mostly delighted to see that my beloved Shiloh did indeed wear a suit to the nuptials. And a SHORTS suit, at that. I die. Keep doing you, Shi! [People]
After nine years and six children together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were finally married in an intimate ceremony in France this past Saturday, their rep said in a statement to the Associated Press. The couple, who famously got together during the filming of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” got engaged in 2012 at their children’s behest. The ceremony took place at Château Miraval in the village of Correns, where the family has lived since 2008. All six children — Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6 — took part in the wedding, with Maddox and Pax walking Jolie down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne tossing flower petals, and Knox and Shiloh serving as ringbearers. I need — NEEEEED — to see photos of this spectacular event, especially Shiloh as ringbearer because you KNOW she wore a tux and that’s just gonna be too adorable. I bet the couple will sell pictures to some classy magazine like Vanity Fair or W, with the money going to charity. Hurry up and start bidding, editors! [People]
Told you I wasn’t done posting about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding! (As much as I thought I wasn’t going to want to, writing about Kimye is actually a lovely reprieve from certain other depressing subjects that I’ve been otherwise engrossed in.)
So! Here’s what we know: Kim wore a custom Givenchy dress for the ceremony and this is the only photo we’ve got of it so far, since the official photos have apparently been exclusively granted to Vogue. (Kanye and daughter North also wore custom Givenchy.) Andrea Bocelli sang Kim down the aisle, John Legend sang that song “All Of Me” at some point, and the couple’s first dance was to Etta James’ “At Last” and Otis Redding’s “These Arms Of Mine” and “Tenderness.” Long first dance, guys. Anyway, then Kanye grabbed the mic and rapped a bit because of course.
Later on, Kanye gave a wedding speech, nay, rant that, according to Us Weekly, went like this: Keep reading »
