There's a nerdy engagement ring style here to tickle EVERYONE's Spidey senses

We've already schemed with our partners at Joseph Jewelry in the past about fandom-inspired rings and they've taken it up another notch to bring us these ideas for nerdy engagement ring styles.

Harry Potter!), bring some ideas to Joseph Jewelry and they will create it for you — made to order, to your specifications (seriously!), and beyond all your geektastic dreams.

Some of the most drop-dead gorgeous wedding portraits EVER (and you can make yours just as fab)

We've been ogling stunning photos by our New Jersey-based longtime photography partner Dennis Pike for years now and STILL never ever ever can get over how amazing they are. No seriously: when we first stated working with him, all of us were heart eyes emoji-ing his photos and he still never stops surprising us with his use of light, shadows, and composition.

Peeking at his portrait portfolio is like falling into the looking glass in a love wonderland. The best part of working with Dennis is that he's been owning offbeat weddings for his entire career. Some of his very favorite weddings came from readers like you and it's a match made in heaven every time.
