A Sentimental Wedding in a Most Treasured Setting

Though Bryson Schaeffer and Matthew Kennedy both attended Clemson University, shared a number of friends and attended many of the same parties, their paths never seemed to cross during college. Bryson’s first night back after graduation, she and a group of friends were set to go bowling and Matthew was among those there. Bryson says that Matthew challenged her to a bowling game … and she won! The two hit it off and became very close but they didn’t started officially dating until several months later.

They got engaged a few years later in the most personal way — at home among their favorite things. Matthew’s love of pizza had become a bit of an obsession according to Bryson — and somewhat of a common occurrence. One evening after work, Matthew welcomed Bryson home to candles lit throughout the entire house and fresh pizza in the kitchen. They began to play the game they’d always played with pizza, where they would count to three, point and shout which piece they would eat first. But instead, Matthew pointed to Bryson and shouted, “I just want you!”

He took her hands and professed his love, quoting an episode of “Friends” (their favorite show) where Chandler proposed to Monica saying, “You make me the happiest man on Earth, and I want to spend the rest of my life making you feel the same way.” He then got down on one knee and proposed. She returned his enthusiasm with an absolute, “Yes, yes, yes!”

After announcing their engagement to family and friends, they began planning their perfect wedding day. They hired sisters Ruthie Bowlin & Russell Whitehead of Russell & Ruthie Events to help put everything in its place but Bryson had to finalize a few details on her own.

Choosing the wedding venue was an easy decision for Bryson, who wanted to be married in her grandparents’ backyard. “I have so many memories at their home. I grew up out there; it has such a special place in my heart.”

Once she checked that item off her list, the next step was finding the perfect prom dresses 2016. During an exhausting but exciting shopping day in Dallas, she fell in love with a Liancarlo dress but wasn’t ready to purchase it quite yet. She found the same dress at Maggie Louise Bridal later but she also found another Liancarlo she loved even more! She knew it was the one when she saw her mom crying. She said, “She hasn’t cried over a dress yet … this is it!” as they both began to cry.

Matthew and Bryson left the next morning for a tropical honeymoon in Costa Rica. A first-time visit for both of them, they brushed up on their Spanish before the trip and enjoyed speaking the language and learning more while there. The couple spent their week relaxing beach- and pool-side — except for one full day of adventure zip lining and other outdoor activities in the rain forest. We wish them a world of happiness in their lifetime adventure together!

JoJo Fletcher, Jordan Rodgers’ Wedding Update: ‘The Bachelorette’ Couple Prepares For Wedding Special?

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are still together, busy planning for their highly anticipated wedding. Contrary to several reports, The Bachelorette couple did not call off the engagement and were, in fact, actually looking forward to doing a wedding special.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, JoJo Fletcher shared that Jordan Rodgers’ mom, Darla, had been helping her with the wedding preparations, sending her several wedding books for inspiration.

“My mom is on it!” Rodgers said.

It seems like Rodgers’ mom is more excited about the wedding than Fletcher and Rodgers. SEC’s newest college football analyst admitted that they have yet to decide where the big day is going to take place. Given that they have families in both California and Texas, Fletcher said that it’s taking them longer to decide where the venue would be.

When asked if they were still open to doing a televised wedding special, The Bachelorette couple shared that it will always be an option. Fletcher, however, quickly added that they were still enjoying their time as an engaged couple and were in no rush to get married.

“Right now we’re just really enjoying being together. You know, it’s funny, we got to be together on the show, but we haven’t really dated. So this has been such a fun time to move into our first home together, and to go on dates.”

As they had an unconventional love story, to say the least, Rodgers and Fletcher shared that they take pleasure in doing the simplest of things, like going on date nights, exploring Dallas as a couple, finding new restaurants to try out.

“Going through normal life together, going through hard times, good times, just normalcy is really amazing. We’re enjoying it and having a blast,” Fletcher shared.

Although they have yet to discuss the specifics, Fletcher revealed that the wedding is definitely happening in 2017, either in March or October. The Bachelorette alum added that they have been talking about the big day a lot but refused to reveal any specifics. Fletcher, however, shared that they are both eager to start a family as soon as “the craziness settle down.”

“We agreed on three [kids]. We’re set on three, but we are going to enjoy our relationship… we are going to get married and then kids will follow after that,” she shared.

Amid the excitement surrounding Fletcher and Rodgers’ wedding special, Celeb Dirty Laundry claimed that fans should not get their hopes up, saying that the reality stars’ engagement was “basically doomed from the start.” The outlet further claimed that The Bachelorette couple has been putting up a façade on social media when the truth is they have long broken up. Fletcher is reportedly making the most out of her fifteen minutes of fame by clinging on to the relationship.

“JoJo has been on SnapChat and Instagram doing some major damage control and trying to convince either herself or the general public that she and Jordan Rodgers are happy and in a good place. In reality, Jordan’s true colors are starting to show, and rumor has it that the couple is no longer living together in Dallas but in SEPARATE homes.”

Are Wedding Bells On Horizon As Comcast Launches Wireless Service On Verizon Network?

In an important tactical move, Comcast CMCSA +1.39% announced on Tuesday that it will roll out a mobile phone service in 2017 using Verizon’s network infrastructure. But is this relationship with Verizon a flirtation that could lead to eventual consolidation? I don’t think it’s a crazy thought. Here’s why.

A Tactical Move

To offer wireless services, Comcast will not deploy its own cellular network, since the cost would be prohibitive. Instead, it will lease airwaves from Verizon, effectively avoiding infrastructure costs such as network integration and cell sites. The deal with Verizon allows it to sell wireless services using the telecom carrier’s network at set terms and pricing.

At first glance, it appears like Comcast is leveraging access to Verizon’s network to offer its existing customers a triple-play bundle: cable, broadband internet, and now wireless. CEO Brian Roberts noted as much when he said that Comcast would focus on up-selling bundles that include wireless to its existing customers, rather than compete for new wireless customers. But there could be more to it.

A Strategic Move?

Media companies and distributors are finally embracing a vision of the future where cable and satellite will give way to mobile and internet-based video services. Research shows that younger generations primarily reach out to their smartphones and tablets to watch video, at the expense of pay-TV subscriptions.

Comcast may be acknowledging that mobile and digital video consumption are the wave of the future and responding to recent moves by wireless providers. AT&T T +1.53% acquired DirecTV and just last week launched Data Free TV, which allows unlimited DirecTV streaming on the AT&T network. Both AT&T and Verizon have made inroads into digital video services that target millennials and Gen Z’s: AT&T is backing video streaming service VRV, while Verizon owns ad-supported streaming service Go90. With its acquisitions of Yahoo YHOO +2.20% and AOL AOL +%, Verizon is also investing heavily in advertising platforms to monetize content.

Meanwhile, Comcast is strong in film, TV content, and digital video services. It already owns NBCUniversal, which in turn has a stake in streaming service Hulu, and it recently acquired Dreamworks Animation studio, which owns AwesomenessTV. AwesomenessTV also targets the increasingly mobile young viewer in digital social platforms like YouTube. A recent story in AdWeek reported that when millennials are watching time-shifted network programming, they choose Hulu over video-on-demand or individual networks’ websites and apps, suggesting that Comcast will have a leg up in reaching this critical market.

Merger or Acquisition?

As wireless companies make inroads into making and distributing video content, Comcast is responding with inroads into wireless communication. This could lead to some innuendo between Comcast and Verizon because they seem to be a good fit for each other. Comcast is strong in cable, internet, film, and TV content, while Verizon is a leader in wireless. Their respective industry positions are complementary and potentially synergistic, while it would take enormous heavy lifting for either one to reach the other’s strong position.

Moreover, they are faced with increasing competition from technology giants Google, Amazon, Apple, and Netflix. History has shown that during digital disruptions, incumbents tend to consolidate to join forces against the disruptors.

Note that Verizon also has a stake in AwesomenessTV, and some of its programming is being featured in Go90. So this joint venture into new media may also be an avenue for Comcast and Verizon to date each other. It may be far-fetched, but it’s not a crazy thought. What may start as Comcast’s tactical move to offer a better bundle or a strategic move to embrace mobile video consumption, may end up being the preface of a love story.
