Annapolis filmmakers involved in tropical wedding program

February 09, 1996|By Sylvia Badger

A VALENTINE edition of "Weddings of a Lifetime," which airs on the Lifetime Cable Network Sunday night at 8, has Maryland connections. Annapolis filmmakers Patti White and K. Lee Anderson are the show's producer and associate producer, respectively.

A Georgia couple, Stacy Childers and Jon Pardee, will be featured in this dreamy tropical wedding at the award-winning Sandals Dunn's River Resort in Jamaica. Jack Wagner, Dr. Peter Burns on Fox's "Melrose Place," and his soap star wife, Kristina Wagner, Felicia Cummings Jones on "General Hospital," will take viewers through Stacy and Jon's romantic story, beginning with the proposal to walking down the aisle. The show will include a scene shot when New York designer Jim Hjelm and his stylist arrived in Atlanta with Hjelm's collection of dresses from which the bridal party selected their gowns! Another wedding highlight is a performance by recording artist, Brian McKnight.

Producer White invited Annapolitans Michael Gerard Curry and Todd Morgan August, owners of Morgan-Gerard, to Jamaica to do the bridal party's hair and make-up. White has known the stylists 10 years and says they have one of the most sophisticated and popular full-service salons in the area. Be sure to notice Kristina Wagner's hair, which Michael Curry was asked to style.

White also produced "America at Risk: Seeds of Hope," a 1992 award-winning documentary for Turner Broadcasting which focused on the problems of five Annapolis families.

Wings over Bel Air

Upstate New York native Tony Perfetti has brought one of his hometown favorites to Bel Air -- red, hot buffalo wings. Tony, a former food and beverage director at the Sheraton Baltimore North and a VP and general manager of SCI Catering Group, has opened C. R. Wings on Bel Air's "new Main Street," the intersection of Route 1 and Route 24. His wife, Sharon,

tells me that they also offer ribs, soups, sandwiches and salads.

The envelope, please

Laura Black and Mark Neumann, the attorneys who founded Attorneys Per Diem, a local legal temporary service about six years ago, threw a party recently at the Center Club. The guest of honor was David Richardson, a founder and director of AccuStaff, the company that purchased Attorneys Per Diem last year. Employees from Baltimore, Cleveland, D.C. and Jacksonville, Fla. attended the company's first Academy Awards Banquet.

Oscars were given to outstanding worker and I understand the Oscar for the "Most Valuable Player" went to a very surprised Valerie Vadala, an attorney with the Baltimore office.

So long, Sloane

The studios at WLIF-FM radio are buzzing about the departure of the station's news director Sloane Brown. I hear she's been hired as the entertainment reporter for WJLA-TV, Channel 7 in Washington. Just think, after six years of getting up at 3 a.m. for her early morning news job, she's going to the opposite extreme and will be hooting with the D.C. social owls at night. She's had lots of practice on the entertainment beat at Channel 45.

Classical bingo

Tropical attire is optional at the "Beethoven, Bach & Bingo Island Extravaganza" at the Harbor Court Hotel next Friday night.
