Singing brought Jo-Anna and Ronald first together, when they were both invited to a common friend’s karaoke contest. But, it wasn’t until one of them accidentally friend requested the other on Facebook, that they really got to know each other and eventually fell in love. It was on a snowy day in January that Ronald proposed to Jo-Anna on the basketball court during half-time at a Pacers game. She, of course, said yes and they immediately threw themselves into wedding planning. One of the first items tackled, was ordering Jo-Anna’s bridal gown from Celebrity Filipino couturier, Edward Teng. The custom made dress had to be ordered eleven months before the wedding and arrived from the Philippines fitting perfectly. Their three girls also received custom-made gowns by CocoMelody. Ronald and Jo-Anna ordered and assembled all their centerpieces and table décor to fit the glamorous wedding style Jo-Anna dreamed of. As they are both from a family of singers, they had no problem finding willing musicians and performers for their ceremony and reception. One of the highlights of the night was when Jo-Anna surprised everyone by singing to Ronald and then performing a choreographed dance with her bridesmaids! The evening was a celebration of a lifetime.
