How we met: I was dating Rick’s neighbor’s brother when we were introduced. Then a year later, we started dating.
How he proposed: At Jasmine, a restaurant at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas overlooking the fountains.
How we heard of and decided to use Jerry Bruno Productions: My maid of honor is related to Jerry, but I have also booked his bands for charity functions I have put together. I wouldn’t have thought to use anyone else.
Biggest wedding planning challenge: Our biggest challenge was trying to find the perfect restaurant for the rehearsal dinner. Everything else went smoothly.
Biggest wedding day pay-off: The reception was fantastic. Hiring Rick and the Cutting Edge was the best thing we could do. They helped keep the reception on-time by MC-ing, and from the first song they played to the last there were always people on the dance floor. People are still talking about the wedding and how it was the best wedding they have been to in years, which is exactly what we wanted.
