From Stage to Life

The Showmance That Was Meant To Be

Once upon a time Bethany was cast in The Fiddler on the Roof at Don Bluth's Front Row Theatre in Scottsdale, AZ as Chava. They still needed to cast a Fyedka and Jorge figured he could audition for the part since he had nothing else to do. It was only when he walked into the rehearsal room that Bethany knew her Fyedka might turn into something more than just friends. On a two show day, on the way to a dinner with the cast in between shows, Jorge asked Bethany out on a date. That was the start of something new, with the first being a long distance relationship. Bethany took to Ohio for a summer stock show while George went helped her settle in, supported her, and text her everyday for 4 months. After several years of dating, then moving in together, Jorge wanted to pop the question on Bethany's favorite day of the year..Christmas eve, 2020. To Bethany, it was the best Christmas gift a woman could have! And now, after four years, they are finally getting married!

The Wedding of Jorge & Bethany

4:00 pm - 11:30 pm

The Wright House
636 W University Dr, Mesa, AZ 85201

The dress code is Cocktail Attire. Cocktail wedding attire is a slightly more elevated dress code than semi-formal attire but is less formal than formal wedding attire. However, there are a few nuances that help differentiate a cocktail attire wedding from a semi-formal wedding. A suit is preferable for men, and women should opt for a cocktail dress or formal jumpsuit.

With Respect while we love your little ones, we have decided to have our wedding be an adult-only occasion. We hope this advanced notice means you are still able to share our big day with us!
