Abigail and Benjamin Wed at Central Library November 3

Congratulations to Abagail and Benjamin who were married on November 3, 2012 at the beautiful Central Library.  Photographer Ian Bergerhoff, Coordinator Deborah Bowman, Florist Dream Weddings, strings from the Lockerbie Quartet, and food from Thomas Catering completed the vendor team for their special day.

These Purdue alums met at school when their respective sorority and fraternity houses were located near one another.  Abigail and Benjamon started out friends and ended up soul mates.

After their ceremony, the cocktail reception was held in the Simon Reading Room on the mezzanine level.  Abigail and Benjamin and their wedding party were introduced to “We Found Love” followed by a welcome by Abigail's dad, Randy, and a blessing by Pastor Dave.  Guests then enjoyed their plated meal and the cake was cut to be shared.  Best Man, Sam and Maid of Honor, Brittany, gave heartfelt toasts to the couple.

Then it was time for Abigail and Benjamin to take the dance floor for the first time as hisband and wife to “When I Say I Do”.  Next, Abigail danced with her father to “Never Alone” and Benjamin danced with his mother to “A Mother's Prayer”.  With the staples complete, the dancefloor was open to all.

The bride tossed her bouquet to the single lady guests to “Where Have You Been” and the groom removed her garter to fan favorite, “Ring of Fire”.  Other crowd pleasers included the “Purdue Fight Song” that led to a group photo of the couple's college friends.

After an extremely enjoyable evening, guests sent their happy couple off to their Hawaiian Honeymoon.  Thanks again for allowing me to be a part of your special day!  If you would like help for your next event, please call Jim Cerone at (317) 845-0749 to schedule your appointment.

KeriAnn and Chad Wed at Union Station August 25

It was my great privilege to serve as host to KeriAnn and Chad at their wedding reception at UnionStation on August 25, 2012. Wedding planner, Deborah Bowman, and photographer, Dennis St. George rounded out the couple's team of vendors for the day.

They had a good feeling about one another early on in their relationship when their frequent emails and phone calls revealed their similar goals and values. This led to Chad's proposal to KeriAnn almost 1 year ago.

After the ceremony at St.Mary's Church, the cocktail reception began followed by the welcome and blessing before the seated meal. After dinner, toasts were given by Maid of Honor, Rachel, and Best Man, Rex. Next, KeriAnn's Dad and Chad took the mic to thank their guests.

The couple then danced their first to Keith Urban's “Only You can Love Me”, and KeriAnn danced with her dad to “A Song for My Daughter” by Ray Allaire. The Mother/Son dance was to Sam Cooke's version of “Wonderful World”.

The guests then enjoyed the open dance floor until the bouquet and garter toss called them to their respective corners. The bride planned a surprise performance for her groom to close out the evening as she serenaded him with their last dance before heading out for their Hawaiian honeymoon.

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.
