Indiana Jeweler Marries Four Couples at Its Store
The annual tradition is an invitation for non-traditional wedding lovers, like this year’s couple who got hitched wearing T. rex suits.
The fine jewelry retailer in Schererville, Indiana, a town about 40 miles outside of Chicago, married four couples this week during its annual Valentine’s Day slate of weddings.
The tradition was inspired by owners Fred and Donna Halpern, who renewed their vows at the store 25 years ago at the original East Chicago, Indiana location to celebrate 30 years of marriage.
Called the “I Do” event, Albert’s hosts other couples tying the knot each year on Valentine’s Day.
One couple, Emily Briney and Derek Keilman from Demotte, Indiana, made the occasion special, indeed, walking down the aisle in matching dinosaur costumes.
“Today, we’re also celebrating my parents’ anniversary, which is how this whole thing started,” said Albert’s Diamond Jewelers President and Owner Joshua Halpern.
Magistrate Jeffery Miller officiated the four Valentine’s Day weddings this year. Albert’s provided a cake from Strack & Van Til and flowers by Denise Floral Designs.
“We’re so glad to be able to have weddings in our store again,” Halpern said.
“There are some very special stories here today and we’re honored to be a part of these couples’ journey.”
