Cleveland Cavaliers’ Arena Host Ahmaad Crump MC’s wedding with DJ Scott Jones

Last month, DJ Scott Jones had the privilege of working a really fun wedding thanks to a creative bride.

Cleveland couple Mary King and her groom Andrew Rothacker, are huge Cavs fans. (No surprise there.) They wanted to do the Cavs’ style grand entrance that is becoming popular at Ohio weddings.

But Mary had a great idea, and went one step further. Not only would her bridal party run in to the reception to Young Jeezy’s “Put On” and Kevin Rudolf’s “Let It Rock,” they would do it while the real, live voice of the Cavs, Ahmaad Crump, announced their names. And, she completely surprised her groom in pulling it off!

“It was amazing and it electrified the entire reception,” said DJ Scott Jones, who was also hired by the smart bride. “Ahmaad was a stellar guest MC and he really helped kick off the party.”

101 Ways to Propose Marriage

On 27, May 2009 | 19 Comments | In Wedding & Event Planning | By Leigh

Scott E. Jones has been working as a DJ, entertainment booker, event planner and office manager with Jerry Bruno Productions (now Cleveland Music Group) for nearly a decade. During his countless meetings with newly engaged couples, he has always asked one question: “How did you propose?”

Scott kept a list of all the answers he has received over the years and compiled them. Here they are for your reading enjoyment or idea stimulation. Feel free to comment and share your proposal story!

Note: we’ve left in many of the locations as told to us, but feel free to replace with your own!

1.   Clean the house, make dinner, then hide signs for her to follow that lead to your heart. You’ll be there with the ring in hand. Add a poem in the actual proposal that she’ll never forget.

2.   While scuba diving, under water, hide the ring in a treasure chest off the coast of Key West.

3.   Hide the ring in her breath mint tin, then ask her for a mint. Read more…

Wedding Planner Offers Tips on Getting Your Marriage License in Ohio

On 03, Apr 2009 | 4 Comments | In Wedding & Event Planning | By Leigh

Our friend, wedding and event planner Ginny Sukenik, wanted to share some information you should know about applying for a wedding license in Cleveland and Ohio.

“You must apply for a marriage license within the county of the state in which you are being married.  Apply at the probate court located in the courthouse of the county in which you will be married.  A blood test is not required in Ohio.

There is no longer a waiting period to receive your license in the state of Ohio, although it still would be wise to apply a few weeks early.  Licenses are valid for sixty days.  You will want extra copies of your license since you will need an original when reapplying for an updated social security card and driver’s license with your new married name.

You must apply in person and each county requires applicants to provide either/or both forms of identification: 1) a valid drivers license, and 2) social security number.  All counties require you to be 18 yrs of age or you will need parental consent as well as a counseling certificate.  If you are remarrying, bring a certified divorce decree or death certificate.

Requirements vary from county to county, so please call the Marriage License Dept. at your issuing county courthouse for fees and hours of operation.
