It sure was physical attraction, but Jerry also knew something else was going on when Jerry saw Julia at the Ohio State Fair last Summer. Julia was something special -- a bit of an angel. Soft spoken and kind, Jerry was blown away. They dated to his shock, and when he proposed marriage, she accepted.
Although by many of their friends' standards, Jerry and Julia became engaged to marry on a relatively fast timeline, this optimistic and attractive couple only saw the positives. Both of them felt they knew it was time to move forward. Unbelievable to both of them, they instantly wanted to start a family.
Neither Jerry and Julia had any idea how to plan a wedding. There was so much advice coming from family and friends, it became overwhelming. They had to step back, and actually went away to a quiet lakeside cabin to discuss how they wanted to proceed with planning their wedding.
They considered a magician, releasing doves, having flying eagles on the arms of bird trainers, but in the end, they went for a fairly traditional wedding to makes things easier. Before too long, Jerry and Julia settled most of their wedding planning concerns. What decisions remained:
One of the characteristics of both Jerry and Julia was their love of good food. It did not matter to either of them if the food was Greek and background, Italian in its derivation, Japanese or Ethiopian. They were both turned on by the quality of good food and they loved to learn about new and exciting spices and platings. So it was a bit of a surprise, or perhaps not, when the caterer presented them with food choices for their wedding that just simply were not good enough for this engaged couple. They worked hard with their caterer to devise a wedding menu with appetizers that were inventive and delicious. They were thrilled with the entire menu of their wedding from the earliest appetizer to the wedding cake desert. with the difficult details of wedding planning behind them, Jerry and Julia were able to choose some really fun wedding favors for the reception and the dance floor. They worked with the banquet hall so the wait could position large balloon bouquets into place at the corners of the dance floor when the live band struck up to play. Fifteen minutes prior to the balloon placement, baskets of brightly colored wedding sunglasses would be placed at each cocktail table and each dinner table. The wait staff positioned the sunglasses in a nice design on silver serving trays. As if they were appetizers, the waiters and waitresses distributed them out among the guests no matter where the guests were, in the lounge, in the reception hall, or outside grabbing a smoke. Jerry and Julia chose the wedding sunglasses from our collection which were the most brightly colored. We created a beautiful wedding logo using one of our most prestigious typefaces. The font accentuated the side imprint of the wedding sunglasses. Thank you to the catering hall which recommended our company. Shades of Fun has been working many special events with the event staff for that banquet hall for many years. We appreciate their faith in us and wish both Jerry and Julia a beautiful marriage and a long happy life filled with joy and friends.
