Abby and Doug Wed at Artsgarden September 14

Congratulations to Abby and Doug who were married on September 14, 2012. After their ceremony at the Chapel at Ritz Charles, the reception was underway at the beautiful Artsgarden. Photographer, Karissa Sprinkle, captured the couple's memories and Indy Photo Booth provided their guests with personalized party favors.

Abby and Doug welcomed their guests at the mic and then went straight into their first dance to “Fly me to the Moon” followed by a blessing from Abby's grandfather. After the seated dinner, toasts were given by Maid of Honor, Amanda and Best Man, Ben.

Next, the bride danced to “The Way You Look Tonight”, splitting the song with her mom and grandfather. Then the groom and his mom danced to “Happy Together” followed by the Dollar Dance where Abby and Doug earned some extra honeymoon cash for Jamaica.

The bouquet and garter toss led up to the Purdue Fight Song and group photo for the couple and their college alums before they made their exit for the evening.

 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.

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.
