New York City’s Todd Remis is suing his wedding photographer for not capturing his big day the way he wanted it — despite the fact that he and his wife divorced in 2010.
Todd Remis and his ex-wife on their wedding day
Todd says that he paid $4,100 to hire the H & H photography studio to take photos and video of his 2003 wedding to Milena Grzibovska. But when he discovered that the photographer had missed the last fifteen minutes of the party, including the last dance and bouquet toss, he got into a dispute with the studio that has landed them in litigation.
Remis is suing H&H for “infliction of emotional distress,” among other charges. In addition to getting a refund for his $4,100, Remis wants H & H to pay $48,000 to fly the wedding’s principals back to New York, so that a different photographer can re-shoot it.
Friends report that Remis wouldn’t even know where to find his ex-wife for the staged wedding shoot, since she’s fled to Latvia since their divorce. The photography studio is said to have already spent $50,000 on legal bills.
“It was unfortunate in its circumstances,” said Remis in his deposition, referring to the separation, “but we are very much happy with the wedding event and we would like to have it documented for eternity, for us and our families.” See the full story on Yahoo.
What do you think? Should Todd get his wedding recreation and his refund??
There are no words for the brilliance of this video. It is simply one of the most clever, hysterically funny, and oddly touching wedding toasts ever, including a song called “I Want to Make Love to Your Love”, a room full of shocked and delighted guests, and even a gift of breast milk in a bag (yes, you read that right).
My favorite part is the reactions of the family elders. Check out the confused older gentleman in the kippah. Pure awesomeness.
Arizona bride Angela Davito made sure she had something blue at her wedding…that is, something black and blue. And it was the police officer she kicked right before she was arrested.
The Saturday night backyard wedding went from blissful to all-out-brawl when a melee between guests and bridal party members got so heated that neighbors called the police, complaining of people “killing each other” at the celebration.
Instead of dessert, partygoers topped off the evening with a heaping helping of pepper spray. But even that failed to calm the situation, and the peppery-eyed bride attempted to attack another guest. That’s when the officer who tried to restrain her was rewarded with a wedding wallop — a kick from the bride’s stylin’ cowboy boots!
That’s Angela, above (photos courtesy of ABC Local). Ain’t she purty? These pics were snapped right after Angela was arrested and charged with assault and obstructing governmental operations. Mazel Tov to the happy couple!! What better way to show love for your new wife than by posting her bail on your wedding night??

This sparkly little heart-shaped clutch by House of Mouawad sure would look beautiful with a bridal gown. But be sure to make room in your wedding budget for a little splurge, because this bag boasts a $3.8 million price tag.
“The Mouawad 1001 Nights Diamond Purse is designed to mesmerize with its lavish attention to detail and elaborate workmanship incorporating thousands of diamonds,” said Pascal Mouawad of House of Mouawad on The Today Show.
What do you think? Do you even like this pricey purse? Personally, I don’t even think it’s that cute. And here are some more handbags that prove that spending doesn’t equal style:
The Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork bag below costs $42,000. It’s made of pieces from 15 different Louis Vuitton purses, and only 20 were produced, making them a sought-after collector’s item for LV fans.
This Judith Leiber Precious Rose clutch is pretty. But is it $92,000 of pretty? It’s made of 42.56 carats of diamonds, pink sapphires, and tourmaline only one was produced.
The Louis Vuitton New Age Traveler backpack retails for $54,000. Get one for yourself, or just buy some telephone cables and tassles and attach them to a knapsack.

McDonald’s may actually just be responding to a recent trend in China that’s made marrying at fast food restaurants popular. If the package is offered in the U.S. next…would you consider having a McWedding??
