I’ve had the best Memorial Day weekend and am so inspired to continue to wait for my “Mr. Right.” I know he’s coming…soon! I had the privilege of attending the celebrity wedding for my good friend Jay Tucker who married the beautiful, funny TV personality Niecy Nash on Saturday, May 28. The two exchanged vows at the luxurious Church Vineyard Estate in Malibu, CA.

Nearly 200 guests including celebrities Sheryl Lee Ralph (matron of honor), Wendy Raquel Robinson (bridesmaid), Shaun Robinson, Blair Underwood, Kym Whitley, Erin Andrews, Evan Lysacek and others witnesssed this magical, memorable moment! Niecy and Jay are completely in love and I’m sure everyone left the wedding feeling refreshed, inspired and determined to rekindle their own love lives. Oh yes, seeing these two together makes one want to prioritize the beautiful institution of marriage. I’m happy to report that “Love” is still in season!

I also had a chance to reconnect with one of my longtime friends and first PR clients Miss Sherri Shepherd (bridesmaid) from The View, who is engaged to be married in August to the great, fun-loving TV writer Lamar Sally (they are also perfect together). I am so glad I went to this wedding…I needed the encouragement! Congrats Jay & Niecy! Continue to make us smile. Continue to make us proud.

April 6–Reese Witherspoon has always been one of my favorite actresses! She reminds me of the girl next door. Bubbly personality and loves life. Reese recently married her CAA agent Jim Toth. The two make a lovely couple and wed a few weeks ago at the actress’ 6-acre ranch in Ojai, CA. The Sweet Home Alabama star walked down the aisle to wedding song favorite ‘Here Comes The Bride.’ She rocked a pale pink wedding dress custom-designed by Monique Lhuillier along with $645 Jimmy Choos. Get ’em Reese! She looked so radiant. Jim presented her with a flashy platinum wedding band to seal the deal.

April 5–Former ‘fly girl’ from In Living Color and current Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba gets engaged on Live with Regis and Kelly. Her guy surprised her with a huge princess cut diamond solitaire ring. Very nice! I’d die if this happened to me! Seriously. Congrats Carrie from everyone at Robbins Brothers. That bling looks good on you girl!

March 8–It’s always fun to see an actual celebrity marriage proposal, especially when it’s caught on tape. During the week leading up to Valentine’s Day, actress and talk show host Holly Robinson Peete, also recent host of the NAACP Image Awards, shared details of her marriage proposal from hubby and ex NFL player Rodney Peete. What a beautiful couple these two make! Even more impressive is that they’re still standing strong after all these years. Congrats to Holly and Rodney from everyone at Robbins Brothers.

October 18: It’s reported that after four months of dating, R&B recording artist Monica and Los Angeles Laker Shannon Brown were engaged over the weekend. Ever since he appeared in her “Love All Over Me” video earlier this year, I thought the two made a lovely pair. Congrats Monica and Shannon, from everyone at Robbins Brothers!

December 23, 2009 — Apparently the rich and famous love the idea of getting engaged during the holidays, just like the rest of us of mere mortals. Maybe it’s the romance found in Christmas classics such as Miracle on 34th Street (remember the scene at the end, where the nice man tells mommy he bought the house and they’ll now be a family?), ElfLove Actually and The Holiday.

Here’s a list of celebrities who have celebrated Christmas with a marriage proposal and a diamond engagement ring:

  • Actor Dean McDermott proposed to Tori Spelling after riding on a horse-drawn carriage through a Christmas Tree farm on Christmas Eve.
  • Seal proposed to super model Heidi Klum on December 23rd, 2004 in a custom-built igloo on top of a glacier in Whistler, Canada.  
  • Actors Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict were engaged on Christmas Day 2006. Cory surprised her with a 1.5 diamond engagement ring in front of her entire family! 
  • Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are the most recent celebs to get engaged during the Christmas holidays

And Robbins Brothers predicts these celebs may get a diamond ring this Christmas: 

  • Angelina Jolie (why not finally make it official, Brangelina?)  
  • Rene Zelwegger
  • Kate Middleton (Prince William’s longtime on-again/off-again girlfriend)

It’s gonna be a lovely Christmas for many couples in love this year.

Congratulations from the Robbins Brothers Bloggers.

November 30, 2009 — It’s official! Chelsea Clinton announced in a mass email to friends and family over the Thanksgiving weekend that she and longtime boyfriend, banker Marc Mezvinsky, are engaged.
