Wow, what a party that Jaynie Covemaker and A.J. Orendorff threw for 330 of their closest friends and family! Jaynie and A.J. tied the knot at 4:00 PM at St. Johns United Methodist church on 9/17/11 and celebrated in a big, big way immediately after the ceremony.
The new bride and groom arrived at spacious, yet elegant Mississippi Hall at the Davenport River Center and found a highly energized crowd awaiting their arrival. Jaynie and AJ’s wedding party entered the room to a Black Tie custom edited version of “Party Rock Anthem”. The crowd roared their approval when the newly-wed couple entered to “My First, My Last, My Everything” by Barry White.
The wedding party included:
Ushers – Vinny Polito, Nick Passini
Bridesmaids – Ashley Hennel, Kirby Vyncke, Liz Nino, Amy Orendorff, Mary-Kate Polito, Shayla Leibovitz and Ryanne Covemaker.
Groomsmen – Mike Nance, Kevin Kluck, Shane Ross, DJ Covemaker, Peter Polito, Kyle Covemaker and Eric McLaughlin.
Maid of Honor – Shelley McLaughlin
Best Man – Sean Shannon
Flower Girl – Adysen McLaughlin
Ring Bearer – Nolan McLaughlin
This was one of the more fun-loving groups of the year!
The couple performed their first dance together immediately upon entering the room to “Like Red On A Rose” by Alan Jackson, and then made the ceremonial first cut on their beautiful wedding cake.
There were lots of kids present, and they had a great play area to enjoy!
Elegant canopy and lighting furnished by River Center:

Flowers and arrangements by Clazzy Designs made the room look strikingly beautiful:
The dinner buffet featured Boneless Pork Loin, Roast Sirloin of Beef, Garden Rice Blend, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Corn and Fresh Asparagus. The cake flavors were White, Chocolate, Raspberry Swirl, Strawberry and Carrot. The guests raved about the food!
