Welcome to another weekly round up post! As usual, links on the top, and Vegas news and other stuff down below.

The latest totally creative proposal video going viral involves actor Zach Braff, a song written specifically for the occasion and the bride-to-be’s family, friends, coworkers and even pet friends. Totally touching when you see Janice, the fiance react to seeing them all in the idea and video conceptualized by Matt Hulbert.
