Cheers & Jeers: Oct. 6, 2012



Making a smooth wedding

Emily Shrock, of Kokomo, sends this Cheer to J. Edwards and Rozzi’s:

“My daughter, Samantha, was married Sept. 29. Like the typical mother of the bride, the choices are many to planning the needs of the wedding. It is a nerve-racking experience and requires months of preparation. Fortunately, much of my stress was reduced by involving J. Edwards Fine Chocolates and The Continental Ballroom/Rozzi’s Catering.

“We have always savored the cakes and candy of J.Edwards Fine Chocolates. It was natural that they were our first and only choice to do the wedding cake and cupcakes. You always have a visual of what the cake will look like, but we were blown away by how gorgeous the whole display turned out! One of the bridesmaids is getting married in a few months and changed her cake arrangements to J.Edwards. I highly recommend to anyone to use J.Edwards for any event. They were so easy to work with and made the whole potentially stressful experience very enjoyable! Much thanks to James, Ryan, and the staff of J.Edwards Fine Chocolates!

“The Continental Ballroom was recommended to us by a friend, whose opinion we very much value. Once again, we found Jennifer and Sara at The Continental Ballroom/Rozzi’s Catering to be extremely easy to work with and felt like the price was very reasonable.  The end result was a wedding and wedding reception that exceeded our expectations!  Much thanks to Jennifer, Sara, and the staff of the Continental Ballroom!

“I also want to mention that my son-in-law’s grandfather passed away the Monday before the wedding. Jennifer Rozzi from The Continental Ballroom sent a large tray of sandwiches to the funeral home. The family was both impressed and very grateful for their thoughtfulness.

“Both businesses demonstrate a high level of professionalism for the city of Kokomo. I hope that anyone wishing to plan an event and want peace of mind that it will be successful will consider using J.Edwards and The Continental Ballroom/Rozzi’s Catering.”
