Leslie and Dominick Wed at Tudor Room December 31

Thanks to Leslie and Dominick for allowing me to serve as host to their wedding at Indiana University's Tudor Room on New Year's Eve 2012.  Shelia White of She Designs took the photographs and Perfect Parties provided a Photo Booth, while flowers were arranged by Artful Bloom.

The IU Alum couple were married in the Beck Chapel in a small ceremony witnessed by wedding party and family.  Leslie's father, Dan welcomed their guests at the start of the cocktail reception before the bagpiper led them into the formal reception.


Toasts honoring Leslie and Dominick were given by Best Man, Sean and Maid of Honor, Kate.  Next, Leslie's Uncle Mike delivered a blessing and all guests were invited to enjoy the meal, and the cake was cut.

The couple danced their first as husband and wife to “Fly Me To The Moon” followed by the father/ daughter dance to “I'll Be Seeing You” and mother/son to “My Wish”.  The couple's guests them enjoyed the open dance floor celebrating their friends' union.

Leslie tossed her bouquet to singel ladies in attendance to “Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie” and Dominick tossed the garter to “Sharp Dressed Man” before the New Year's Countdown Clock was initiated at 11:30.

Guests were provided with party hats and streamers to help bring in the New Year, and Leslie and Dominick were sent off into 2013 to “The Party's Over”.

Congratulations  and Happy New Year to Leslie and Dominick!  If you would like help for your next event, please call Jim Cerone at (317) 845-0749 to schedule your appointment.
