Check out these amazing dance moves from a recent wedding in Russia!
When Casey Brooks went swimming at high tide and lost his wedding ring in the water, he didn't think there was any way he'd ever see it again. Fortunately, an anonymous hero with a metal detector saved the day and tracked it down only hours after it was lost.
Casey and his wife Lindsey spent the day at a beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey and while swimming at high tide he felt the ring slide off his finger. Straight away he started feeling around the ocean floor but to no avail. His wife joined him with a pair of goggles, but the waves and current made it impossible to see. With heavy hearts the couple left the beach and returned later in the hope of finding it at low tide.
When the couple came across a woman with a metal detector, they asked if she'd found a wedding band but unfortunately she hadn't. The woman wanted to help and waded knee-deep into the water. In less than 10 minutes she claimed she heard a sound on her headphones. Casey sifted through the sand and to his amazement found his wedding ring buried more than a foot deep.
Casey pulled out his wallet and gave the mystery woman a $100 reward. She also posed with for a picture his wife took to remember the moment. He said, "I didn't even get her name but she got big hugs from my wife and me."

If you’re set to get married soon and are in the process of planning for the big day, here’s a tip that might save you from some sadness further down the road; don’t go cheap on the photography if you can help it. It turns out that spending too little on photography is one of the biggest regrets brides have after their wedding, while spending too much rarely causes remorse.
For a wedding issue that will soon be hitting newsstands, New York Magazine created an infographic titled “What They Would Have Done Differently.” The magazine asked one hundred recent brides about what they’d do differently if they could go back in time. Surprisingly over 20% of brides say they wished they had spent more on wedding photography.
As well as documenting your wedding ceremony, wedding photos also give you the opportunity to capture the fun side of your day, all while looking your very best and happiest. When you look back at your wedding album in years to come, you want photos that will make you smile and reminisce not only of your "I dos," and the formalities of the day, but also of the silly, light-hearted, and shared moments spent with family and friends. Many couples perhaps don’t think of this while they are busy planning their wedding, but it’s definitely worth keeping in mind.
Although your wedding may be one of the most special occasions of your life, don’t forget that it only lasts for a day, and unfortunately nobody can remember every little detail. Spend wisely on your photographer and get the shots that you want. Also, make sure that each of your guests has the Snappy Ever After app installed on their phone to help you document every special moment of your day!
Southern California couple Joshua and Rachel Watson took inspiration from their favorite films and TV shows when they crafted the invitations for their June 1st wedding. With the help of their photographer friend Jordan Nakamura, the couple inserted themselves into posters for films such as, "Casablanca," "Inception" and "Mad Men," and then sent guests a DVD case with one of the posters as the cover and a CD of their favorite music inside.
Joshua, a photographer, said that he and Rachel, who works in film and television, felt "burnt out" with traditional wedding and engagement photography. "We wanted our engagement and wedding to be the first time we actually collaborated and created something together, and decided to produce this."
What a great idea! Check out some of their movie poster invites in the video below.
