Ashley and Jared Wed at Ritz Charles August 18

I loved working with Ashley and Jared when hosting their wedding at the Ritz Charles on August 18, 2012. Other vendors helping to complete the couple's team include photographer, Lauren Weghorst and videographer, Dan Lindley with XoomworX.

This couple knew they were headed for marriage- even on their first date! Ashley anticipated Jared's proposal before he could ask while on a trip to Chicago.

The couple's personalized ceremony was seasoned with their favorite musical selections like “Our Love is Here to Stay” and “Just the Way You Are”. They were transitioned to the reception area with a tower of bubbles.

The reception was underway as I announced the wedding party and Ashley and Jared. They were then toasted by Best Man, Bill, and Maid of Honor, Rachel before the seated meal.

The cake was cut to “BeforeYou”, followed by Ashley and Jared's first dance to “Hold On”. Then Ashley danced with her dad to “Have a Little Faith”, and Jared surprised his mom with “I Hope You Dance” for their dance together. Jared's mom had told him of her wish to dance to that song on his wedding day when he was only 8 years old.

The party kicked up from there with crowd favorites like the Dollar Dance, Bouquet/Garter Toss, and “SHOUT”. After a midnight snack, we wound down the party with a few of Ashley and Jared's favorites before sending them off.

Congratulations to a great couple! Thanks again for the opportunity to help you celebrate such an important occasion. If you would like help for your next event, please call Jim Cerone at (317) 845-0749 to schedule your appointment.
