Couples get married during local hockey game in Cleveland, OH.

This story was posted on WKYC Channel 3’s website in Cleveland.  Several couples were married on Thursday by Pastor Mark Bernard, a wonderful Pastor from Austintown, Ohio, that I have had the pleasure of working with.  What a fun experience this must have been, both for Pastor Bernard, and the couples getting married!!  The story follows below:

Couples get married during hockey game!

CLEVELAND — Not only was their champagne on ice, but their wedding ceremony was too!
Twelve couples who won a promotional contest sponsored by a local radio station tied the knot at the Lake Erie Monsters Hockey Game at Q Arena Thursday night.The ceremonies were performed during the intermissions squeezed in between hockey play and the zamboni cleaning the ice. They were short, but sweet. And they were all legal.

Reverend Mark Bernard of Austintown said the couples had to say “I do” and he had to hear each person say the words in order to comply with Ohio law. He also had to sign the wedding certificates.

Though some say getting married is unusual, it is legal and was celebrated by all who witnessed the blessed event.

Couple gets married at the top of the Empire State BuildingEmpire State Building, New York City
Couple wins wedding atop Empire State Building!

WADSWORTH — For Sara Ughrin and George Mostoller a traditional wedding just wouldn’t do.
“I don’t know why we never thought of having anything normal,” joked Ughrin.Ideas for a wedding location ranged from Niagara Falls, where the couple got engaged, to Progressive Field, where the pair will spend a bulk of their time this summer rooting on their beloved Cleveland Indians.Then Ughrin, who loves visiting New York City, thought of someplace else: the Empire State Building.

But the only day of the year you can get married there is Valentine’s Day. And this year Brides.com sponsored a contest in which 14 couples would be chosen for a dream “wedding in the clouds.”

So without telling her fiance, Ughrin entered the contest – and the couple won.

Today Ughrin and Mostoller exchanged vows atop the Empire State Building as 15 family members and friends looked on.

Turns out it was Mostoller’s first visit to the New York City.

“It’s just unbelievable,” the groom said shortly after the wedding. “It’s now one of my favorite cities in the world as well.”

The couple plans to have a reception in Cleveland for family and friends who couldn’t make it to New York City.

I found this article on Biz Bash NY.  Sounds totally decadent!!  Enjoy!!

Suite Chocolate
To unveil this year’s Valentine’s Day promotion, Godiva brought press to the East Village for ataste—and photo op—of a room made almost entirely of chocolate.
Last January, Godiva created a chocolate-walled lounge for In Style‘s Golden Globes after-party,but for its yearly Valentine’s Day competition this year, the chocolate brand is going one step further,

with an experiential marketing stunt that offers a weekend stay at a hotel suite made almost entirely

of chocolate. At Divine Studio on Tuesday afternoon, 30 members of the press gathered for a first

glimpse of the grand prize, which will ultimately be enjoyed only once, at the Bryant Park Hotel.

Erica Lapidus, head of public relations and promotions for the Belgian-based chocolatier, worked

with public relations firm Alison Brod and Los Angeles-based designer Larry Abel to produce a

wall-to-wall Godiva-loaded room that doesn’t melt at room temperature.

“I had to imagine the perfect chocolate-lover’s fantasy,” Abel said about the suite, soon to be

rebuilt at the hotel for the sweepstakes winner. Abel, who has worked with Godiva for four years,

said this was the biggest and most extravagant project yet. “It took a team of 14 to bring the brand

to life, beginning in L.A. and continuing with the two-day installment in New York,” he said. Godiva

reps wouldn’t comment on the cost of the products used, and Abel admitted there was too much for

him to even estimate the number of pounds of chocolate.

Photo Gallery                                                                                             For Larry Abel's art mosaic, one of his most challenging pieces, he used bonbons from every Godiva collection.

From the initial concept to the finished design, Abel says he put more than 1,000 hours of work into the piece, which, to him, is more than a simple showcase of colorful chocolates. “I considered the art elements, how I would invent a really cool, unusual space with rich browns, varied textures, and mixtures of classic and contemporary designs,” he said. For Lapidus, the goal of the suite was to create a “unique culinary experience,” which, despite being edible, will hopefully be “more admired than nibbled on.”Playing with interactive components, Abel included a crystal ice bucket filled with white chocolate truffles, books that open to pieces of chocolate in place of pages, and even edible flowers. He also created interpretations of two paintings: a Jackson Pollock-inspired canvas splattered with multicolored chocolate and a re-creation of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss.” “The Kiss” in particular was a challenge for Abel, who describes the piece as an explosion of gold, ribbons, foils, and mint cherry cordials. The Pucci-inspired chocolate upholstery on the armchairs and the chocolate mosaic on the dining room table are also deeply detailed designs that pushed Abel to come up with something visually appealing while using chocolates from every Godiva collection.

To add a little life to the suite, Godiva tapped Heroes star Ali Larter to help promote the competition (which anyone can enter by purchasing a $23 heart-marked gift box) for reasons beyond her pretty celebrity face. The recently engaged actress claims to carry tins of Godiva chocolates, and last year requested a Godiva cake for her birthday. “This year, Ali Larter, a huge Godiva fan and bride-to-be, best embodied the brand,” said Randi Peck, vice president of lifestyle at Alison Brod. Larter, the only non-press guest at the event, participated as the roving centerpiece and a draw for the photographers.

The Decadence Suite is only part of Godiva’s promotional package; other sinful goodies include a year’s supply of Godiva chocolates and a private chocolate tasting led by Godiva’s executive chef and chocolatier, Thierry Muret. “This is our most extraordinary prize to date,” Lapidus said of the suite, “which is why we’ve already started brainstorming ways to top it next year.”   —Lauren Matison
