Congratulations to Josh and Megan on their wedding. All of us here are proud to have you as part of our team, but are also extremely happy for your personal side of life as well.
The two were married Saturday at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Peru. Many of us at the Uptown did not get to attend their wedding, but they did stop in to see us Saturday afternoon. Of course, Megan had to pick the busiest day of the year for us as we hosted TWO wedding receptions of our own, to go along with the Jazz N The Street festival downtown LaSalle.
So, I won't let them forget that! It was unfortunate that we could not celebrate their day with them, but hopefully they understand and realize that we all wish we could have been there.
Josh started working here when he was 16 years old and we've seen him grow up into a responsible adult. Megan began working here just a few short years ago and it wasn't long before these two began their budding romance.
The Uptown has generated several romances over the years. Some have moved on to other aspects of their lives, some remain working here today, and others have opened restaurants of their own. So we knew, from experience, that these two had found something special.
Now, they begin a new chapter in their lives, a chapter that will have them living AND working together on a daily basis. We wish you both nothing but the best and hope you have a long and happy life together. We look forward to being a part of it. Just don't go opening any new restaurants, okay!
