"Oh What a Night" - Featured Wedding: Jodi and Scott
Not many brides can brag that they were serenaded by the Jersey Boys at their wedding reception, but for Jodi and Scott, they have the photos to tell the tale.
Oh, what a night!
About 3/4 way into dinner, the Jersey Boys appeared and started their show with backup music provided by Ken Arlen Orchestra.Singing first to the bride, "My Eye's Adored You" and then to the whole group. After several songs, everyone got up and joined on the dance floor. Everyone loved dancing to the songs! "Can't Take My Eyes Off You,""My Eyes Adored You," "Sherry,""Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Working My Way Back to You,""Who Loves You," and of course, "Oh What a Night."
The bride's gown was by Ines Di Santo and her shoes by James Ciccotti.
Their story -
Scott and I were friends in high school, but did not date. After graduating, Scott went to the University of Michigan and I went to the University of Illinois. After college, both of us moved back to where we grew up. Scott was in medical school and I had just started teaching first grade. In the winter of 2007, we bumped into each other at a bar in Chicago. Shortly after, we started dating.
The engagement -
Scott loves architecture and had been asking to go to the top of the Sears Tower. One day, he called me to tell me he had won a raffle at the hospital to two tickets to the Sky Deck. When we got there, the Sky Deck was actually closed because they were constructing the new observation decks at the time. We ended up going to the 99th floor. We walked around for a bit and then Scott distracted me, and when I turned around he was down on one knee proposing! Afterwards, we went for drinks at Rockit, the place where we met. He was smart and thought ahead for dinner, making several dinner reservations for that night and letting me pick where I wanted to go. We got engaged on May 2, 2009 at the top of the Sears Tower, (prior to the name change to Willis Tower) and married on June 12, 2010.
