Long-Time Jeweler Enjoys Working With Young Couples To Find That Perfect Ring

Tony Cecena, his parents Maria and Jose Cecena, Celeste Gamache and Ryan Cecena.


or most couples, the single most treasured investment in their life is the bride’s wedding ring. This symbol of a lifelong commitment to each other is also a beginning of a new transition together. Cecena’s Jewelry, an anchor in the Metro East, specializes in this once-in-a-lifetime moment. “Yes, our forte is definitely bridal,” said Antonio Cecena, owner and custom jewelry designer at Cecena’s. “Working with these young couples is very exciting for us – it’s really fun to be a part of this big move they are about to make.” Interestingly, Cecena said the trend in choosing the ring has changed every two years or so. “For a couple years, the bride came in and picked her ring out and then the groom entered the picture; and then for a couple years they came in together. Right now it seems like more guys are coming in to choose the ring and then surprising her with it.” “The cool thing about bridal is every year I always find a new line to offer – this year I picked up two new lines!” he said. “So our choices are constantly refreshed.” Of course there is a wide selection for the groom including those matching the bride’s set, but “it’s always last minute… sometimes last second!” Cecena’s has a rich history in the Metro East opening 38 years ago in Cahokia just down the road from Parks College. “My folks, who have been married for 56 years, opened the store where I literally grew up,” Cecena said. Moving in the late ‘80s to West Belleville proved successful, but their most recent location change to Green Mount Crossing in Shiloh has been “epic,” Cecena said, laughing. “Just to give you an idea: of all the Dierbergs' locations, this property is one of their most successful.”

Starting off at the ripe old age of 16, Cecena began a longtime career by learning how to repair clocks and watches. “By 18, I was taking it seriously,” he said. Now known throughout the area as quite the creative custom jeweler, he tells customers “the sky’s the limit. I know that sounds corny, but it’s true. Often a customer walks in with a loose stone of some kind and just says, ‘make me something pretty – I trust ya!’” Son Ryan, the third generation, is involved in the business, which really “happened by accident,” Cecena said. “He worked here part-time for gas money while he was in school, but it just fell in place. And now he’s such an important part of the company’s success as far as repairs – he carries a lot of responsibility.” Obviously enjoying each other’s company, the family works together every day alongside 28-year staff member Celeste Gamache and Pamela Herbeck. “We actually do all get along. I think by turning off the mom-dad-son buttons while we’re at work helps a lot,” Cecena said. “A lot of people can’t grasp that concept, but it works for us and when we walk out the door it’s back to family.” Cecena’s offers all different kinds of jewelry from fine to custom to “fun stuff.” Carrying all the standards in earrings and pendants, they have contemporary designs plus the mainstream. “Sterling silver is our hottest seller, but it’s also most popular because it’s affordable,” he said. “I just picked up this new line that’s very very affordable with lots of sparkly stones – it’s just so neat.” “Our work here is so gratifying – it really is. It’s nice to make a difference to someone by repairing something special or an heirloom. Now that we have been in business for so long, we've seen kids grow up, get married and then their kids grow up and get married,” Cecena said. “I can’t imagine ever doing anything else.” Visit Cecena's Jewelry at 3930 Green Mount Crossing Drive next to Dierbergs in Shiloh; (618) 632-7330;

Champagne & Lace Just as pretty in person as it sounds, the lovely full-service Champagne and Lace Bridal boutique showcases wedding gowns, bridesmaids and mother-of-the-bride dresses, prom and homecoming dresses, and pint-size dresses for the flower girls. Having a wonderful collection of dresses and gowns in stock, the staff can literally find any dress desired. They also carry jewelry and shoes to complete the ensemble.


he storyline of the boutique is just as romantic as the special occasions to which they cater. Proprietor Debra Payne worked at Willard’s Tailor Shop and trained with the current owner’s father for many years before working with Willard.

fall causing them to “redo” the already new interior. But it was a small setback for the determined duo and now there is a bridal salon upstairs and prom/bridesmaids on the first floor. “This way the bride and the prom-goer don’t get in each other’s way,” she said.

The boutique is open seven days a week and is easily found at all the upcoming bridal shows:

“Willard’s father could look at a hem from across the room and see if it was off even 1/8 of an inch! He’d pull his glasses down on his nose and peer over them at me until I ripped it out and started over,” she laughed.

Carrying all the quality lines that today’s modern bride wants and sees in all the magazines, Champagne and Lace offers Alfred Angelo Bridal, Allure Bridal, Venus Bridal, Sophia Tolli, Justin Alexander, Davinci Bridal, Casablanca Bridal, Marys Bridal, Karelina Sposa and Forever Yours. “Brides will come in with magazines or a picture on their phone,” Payne said. “And we can accommodate!” Of course all alterations are completed right there or at Willard’s.

An Elegant Affair Wedding Soiree July 14, 2013. Kemp Auto Museum 16955 Chesterfield Airport Rd., Chesterfield

As a country girl at heart, though, Debra Payne went home to Ozark, MO where she had her own tailor shop “right on the square in town,” she said. “It was very different than working here at Willard’s…I could hang a sign on the door that said, ‘went to the auction, be back soon.’” For seven years, Debra and Willard Payne maintained a long-distance relationship. “He would ask me all the time to marry him and finally he said, ‘I’ll give you 30 seconds to answer and then I’m not asking any more.’”

For prom and homecoming, Champagne and Lace keeps a log of their customers and what school they attend – once a particular dress is sold it will not be seen on any other person at the same school. “Sometimes I have to tell an unhappy girl that I can’t sell her the dress she wants, but then they always see the point and choose something else,” she said.

She said, “yes,” and the rest is history as they say. Always wanting a bridal shop to pair with the tailor shop, Willard Payne encouraged Debra to open her own boutique, which she did a couple years ago. Sadly there was a small fire last

Turn Back Time with Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Submitted by Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness

Are you experiencing the unkind effects of gravity and aging such as sagging cheeks, wrinkles, wilting eyelids, jowls,“turkey neck,” and an overall “tired” look? When going under the knife isn’t yet an option, there are a few great alternatives to achieve skin tightening with fabulous anti-aging results. Microcurrent Treatments. This medical-grade treatment can be touted as “fitness for your face.” Microcurrent treatments use special gloves or wands to deliver the actual micro-currents to the muscles in the treatment area. Typically treatment is done on the jaw, cheeks and around the eyes. Similarly to working out with a Personal Trainer at a gym, you will be working out your facial muscles with your Treatment Provider. For best results, the provider will recommend a series of treatments. Typically, two to three sessions are scheduled per week for one month. After the initial series, maintenance treatments are recommended to preserve your results. There isn’t any downtime associated with Microcurrent. Medical UltrasoundTherapy. When you aren’t ready for surgery, but want results that mimic a surgical procedure, then consider Ultrasound Therapy. This high-performance, physician-grade, non-surgical treatment uses Ultrasound Energy. Small, focused deposits of Ultrasound Energy are delivered just below the skin to the same tissue layer that is addressed in a surgical procedure. By delivering ultrasound in such a strategic method, it actually reconditions the current structure of the skin while stimulating the growth of new collagen, resulting in an uplifting appearance. Eyebrows will appear more lifted, skin will look firmer and tighter, and youthfulness will be restored. This treatment takes approximately one hour or less depending on the focus: full face, lower face, or upper face and eyes. Because the Ultrasound Energy is targeting structures deep in the skin, patients may experience slight redness or tenderness in the treatment area. Otherwise, there isn’t any downtime and you can resume your normal activities. It may take up to six months to achieve full results, which will last a year or more, especially if combined with a good skin care regimen. There are many treatments that use variations of ultrasound technology. Be certain you are getting an FDA-approved, medical procedure with proven results. In addition, it is absolutely vital to protect your investment with medical-grade skin care. Ultherapy, the only non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment for lifting skin on the neck, face and eyes, is NOW available at Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging and Wellness. Schedule your complimentary consultation by calling (618) 288-9117. The 12,000-squarefoot Spa and Wellness Clinic is located at 110 Cottonwood Road in Glen Carbon. Visit us online at or

The Top 5 Reasons Your Child Needs an Eye Exam impede learning can be corrected – once they are detected,” shared Dr. Thomas Unger, an optometrist with an office in Troy.

Please take a moment to review the signs that indicate vision may be playing a role in their child’s difficulties: • headaches when reading • slow or incomplete copy work from board or paper • avoidance of reading • poor reading comprehension • frequent loss of place while reading • complains words move on the page • short attention span • smart in everything but school • labeled ADD, ADHD, dyslexic • working below potential


ummer is finally here. As your family calendar becomes full of summer events and you start to schedule those Back to School appointments for your child’s upcoming school year, are you sure you haven’t forgotten something important? What about your child’s eyes? Vision problems can affect more than just seeing the board or reading a book. Research has shown that vision problems can: 1. interfere with academic performance 2. slow down overall development 3. cause a short attention span 4. make reading difficult 5. result in lowered self-esteem It’s usually pretty easy to tell when your child has difficulty seeing things in the distance (such as the board in school), but most parents don’t know what to look for to determine when a child has difficulty seeing the words in a book. There are so many potential explanations for why a child struggles with reading that parents often lose sight of the obvious. Many parents mistakenly assume that the vision screenings are the same as a complete eye examination, and incorrectly assume that their child’s vision is fine when they pass the screening. According to the American Optometric Association, approximately one out of four children struggle with reading and learning because of undiagnosed vision problems; and three out of five children with learning disabilities have undiagnosed vision problems. “Whether your child is a bright underachiever, struggles with reading or has developmental delays, the good news is the majority of vision problems that

Any one of the above symptoms is a sign that you need to schedule a vision exam with a developmental optometrist. Please take the time to learn more about the vital role vision plays in your child’s academic performance, it could make all the difference. For more information or to schedule an appointment, Dr. Unger can be reached at: (618) 667-2020.

From STRUGGLING... 1 out of 4 children struggle with reading and learning because of undiagnosed vision problems.

Does Your Child... • Dislike reading? • Skip or reread lines? • Prefer to be read to? • Lose place when reading?

• Have trouble remembering what has been read? • Have difficulty paying attention? ADD/ADHD? • Make number/letter reversals such as “b” and “d”? • Have reading and homework take longer than it should? SUCCESS! EliminatE Doubt!

If your child has any of the above symptoms, he or she may have a 100% correctable vision-based learning problem. Children who once struggled go from failure to success when these vision problems are treated. Call us today to schedule a Developmental Vision Evaluation.

An In-ground Pool Is Much More Attainable Than Ever!


aving a crystal clear swimming pool in your own back yard can provide endless hours of entertainment and family fun. It can be a refreshing retreat during those hot, lazy summer days and a cool sanctuary on hazy nights. Thanks to new saltwater infiltration systems, the maintenance of a pool is greatly reduced and, thanks to Swimmer Delight Pool Co., a beautiful new in-ground pool can be installed for just $26,000 (price may vary according to the site condition). “Saltwater has changed the game,” said Kevin Heintz, owner of Swimmers Delight, “it makes weekly maintenance almost nil. And with the use of automation and computers we can construct a residential pool that will run self sufficiently without chemicals or anything . Automation used to be limited to commercial pools, but now it can be for any pool. We can even set it up so you are emailed if you need to address something.” In addition, Heintz offers a breakthrough in energy-efficiency and service life: the . VS-3050 Variable Speed Pump allows programming for four different speeds for different pool, spa or water features applications. “This new pump can save up to 30% on electricity costs,” he said. Swimmers Delight Pool Co. was started in 1979 by Heintz’ parents where he literally grew up in the pool business. Taking over the day-today operations eight years ago, he is now the owner and works with his cousin, Tom Heintz, building pools in all shapes and sizes. The company is happy to work as far west as St. Louis County to Interstate 57 in Illinois to Edwardsville and back down to Chester. They are actually located in St. Libory, which is about in the middle of this huge territory.

Kevin Heintz said 95% of the pools he builds are vinyl liner pools with walls of polymer. However, they also offer gunite and one-piece fiberglass styles. “We love doing custom pools – any shape you like,” he said. Now they are able to provide the “whole package,” as Tom Heintz said. “Not only can the company install the pool, but the decking, landscaping – anything the customer needs.”

Thinking about getting a pool for your home? Consider these beneficial advantages: Easy Entertaining and Convenience: Pools can function as both the backdrop and the centerpiece for weekend picnics, family gatherings and romantic nights. Durability: 
In-ground pools last much longer than above-ground pools. Aesthetics: 
In-ground pools seamlessly blend into your backyard and can be combined with a wide range of brick, tile, natural rock and landscaping to create any type of setting you desire. Options: 
In-ground pools offer a variety of options for shape, depth and accents. Depending on the size of the pool, you can add diving boards, slides and even waterfalls to create the ultimate pool experience. Call Kevin Heintz at (618) 824-6276 or Tom Heintz at (618) 939-5151 to schedule an appointment and visit for more information.

Ugly Concrete? Don’t Tear It Out - Resurface!


t. Louis Resurfacing, Inc. has long been considered the pioneering leader throughout the Midwest in resurfacing. Family owned and operated, Fred and Cindy Wolf founded the company in 1990 with a mission to always install the highest-quality decorative concrete resurfacing installations possible.

“This is a wonderful solution for beautifying concrete and highly suggested for pool decks,” he said. “Our decorative pavers are available in many beautiful colors and designs. Instead of tearing out old concrete, the thin pavers are installed on top of existing pool decks, patios and porches.” For residential and commercial flooring, St. Louis Resurfacing presents the Epoxy Paint Chip Flooring System that combines an attractive appearance with impressive durability. Its benefits include many colors, low maintenance and the fact that it is stain and chemical resistant.

“We are considered the company of record in the Midwest for the installation of the Pebblestone Epoxy System,” said Fred Wolf. “I would say we have applied this popular system to literally thousands of residential and commercial jobs throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area.” The Pebblestone Epoxy System is applied directly over existing patios, driveways, pool decks, front porches and walkways, garage floors, basement floors, and commercial entranceways. Most applications take only one day and can often be used the next day. “Don’t spend the time and money to tear out existing concrete. The Pebblestone Epoxy System is a durable, quick way to restore your concrete surface, and totally transform ugly concrete into something beautiful,” Wolf said. In addition, the flooring system is stain, chemical, salt and crack resistant. Another product to consider is the Decorative Paver Overlay System, which is approximately 1-inch thick and made with white cement. Using white cement makes these pavers cooler to walk on than standard concrete.

Shawn Wolf, Senior Crew Chief, has a degree in marketing from the University of Missouri State. After finishing college, he decided to take part in the family business and works hard to maintain the highest possible quality in producing the finest decorative concrete resurfacing installations in the Midwest. Fully bonded and insured, St. Louis Resurfacing, Inc. does not sub-contract its work. Employees of the company perform all jobs.

CHED & HEATHER Member Since 2000

If you haven’t noticed by now, the Men of Spengler have been showing up all over the metro-east in calendars, billboards, TV and mailboxes. Not to mention happy homeowner’s doorsteps as they work to provide plumbing, cooling and heating solutions in times of crisis. Now the wives of the Men of Spengler are getting their turn to shine with the launch of Spengler’s Happy Wife – Happy Life Club. “The one thing I have learned after replacing air conditioners all day is that a Happy Wife equals a Happy Life,” said Jerry Becker, an Indoor Comfort Solution Specialist at Spengler. “So I knew with the summer heating up, it was time to replace our old air conditioner with a new Spengler Complete Home Cooling System to keep my wife and kids cool this summer.” And Jerry isn’t the only Spengler team member who thought the same way.

Why Squint When You Can Tint?! Since 1987, Bi-State Glass Coatings has been a leader in the window tinting industry throughout the St. Louis Metro area. The company is family-owned and operated by Sandy and Randy Heuser of Granite City and provides residential, commercial and auto tinting. “Our customer service and attention to detail is what sets us apart from other companies,” said Sandy Heuser. “Randy and I listen to our customers’ needs and help them choose the best film for their situation. We also feel that we offer the highest-quality film available and a professional installation.” There are many different brands of window film out on the market today and after much research, Bi-State chose to become a premier Sunscape Select dealer. Sunscape Select, manufactured by Madico, carries a superior warranty and has a natural, nonreflective appearance. In addition, Sunscape Select window film carries a NFRC rating and is an Energy Star partner. Now that summer is here, professionally installed window film can offer significant savings in cooling expenses, protect furnishings and flooring, as well as adding resale value to the home. Sunscape Select window film will reject up to 83% of the heat and glare, and eliminate 99.9% of UV rays, which is the major cause of fading.

Over the years, Bi-State has earned and gained the trust of thousand of homeowners, and is honored to have business relationships with such companies as Clarkson Eye Care, ICS Construction, Memorial Hospital, St. Elizabeth’s and numerous others.

Bi-State Glass Coatings is licensed and insured, and does not sub-contract installations. Company-employed installers are trained and certified. Contact the Heusers at Bi-State Glass Coatings for a free estimate at (618) 451-7346 or (314) 623-5286.

Heat? Glare? Fading? We’re here to help! Protect your investments from fading.

For a single-family home, window film installation cost can range from $5 to $11 per square foot depending on the type of film installed and difficulty of the installation. The process can usually be completed within a day.

• Rejects 83% of the sun’s Heat and Glare • Eliminates 99.9% of UV rays (major cause of fading) • Natural appearance ­—­non-reflective • Superior Lifetime Warranty •­­ Significantly­lowers­utility­costs • Choice of Architects, Builders & Designers World-wide • FREE ESTIMATES

Currently, there is a “Federal Energy Tax Credit’ through Dec. 31, 2013 which allows homeowners to take a tax credit of 10% of the cost of the solar control window film installed in their primary residence with a lifetime max of $500. In addition to energy saving films, Bi-State also offers safety and security films, and decorative/privacy films: Safety and Security Window Film Unprotected glass can lead to catastrophic injuries and damage. To a thief, a broken window is an open door to the valuables inside. These films act like an invisible shield and hold glass in place upon impact, offer 24-hour window protection and reduce the terrifying effect of flying glass. Bi-State recently installed this type of film for the Ross Dress for Less store and in the nursery at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Decorative Window Film Decorative films are available in multitudes of different patterns and textures. Now, any flat-glass surface can be turned into a work of art and can also provide varying degrees of privacy. This type of film was installed in the outpatient surgery units at Memorial Hospital. The objective was to have a decorative appearance with a privacy element. These films are great fits for shower doors, room dividers, front doors and so much more.

For Your Next Family Vacation,


“When you wish upon a star, we hope you wish for a dream Disney vacation… with us!” said Debi Mitchell, owner of Wish Upon A Star With Us Travel. “We are travel specialists that help families with their trips to Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Aulani (Disney’s resort and spa in Hawaii), and guided family vacations all over the world with Adventures by Disney. Our expertise allows you to relax and enjoy the anticipation of your vacation, without the worries associated with some of the overwhelming details.” Of course, vacationers can book directly with Disney - and the price is still the same - but they will not get all of the personalized service and attention to detail that the agents at Wish Upon A Star With Us provide. What are the advantages of staying at a Disney resort? How do you get the best price? Which character meals at Disney World will your children enjoy? Which pool is better for your family? Do you know the differences in the four Disney Cruise Line ships? How can you get the most out of a trip to China with your children?

All of the agents’ expertise comes from countless trips to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, sailing Disney cruise ships every chance they get, and staying at Disney destinations around the world. “Every time we visit a destination we learn more and more to help our families that book their vacations with us,” said Mitchell. “Just ask yourself: ‘doesn’t it make sense to book your Disney vacation with someone who’s been there many, many times, than one who hasn’t?’” Wish Upon A Star With Us Travel is a special travel agency because they have been awarded the Authorized Disney Vacation Planner designation. This means they are approved by Disney to help plan your vacation and are the first to learn new information. This “earmarked” award means that you can be assured you are getting the best service from the most knowledgeable agents in the industry. “We provide that extra ‘pixie-dust’ to help make your Disney vacation a truly magical time,” Mitchell said.

“We know the answers to all of these questions!” said Missy Tillman, an agent with Wish Upon A Star With Us Travel. “And we provide these planning services for free.”

HowYUduin? Recent Move Puts Schiappa’s In Prime Location


ho serves the best pizza in town? “Fuggedaboudit!” Schiappa’s does of course! With two locations in Lebanon and O’Fallon, Schiappa’s has been feeding customers’ pizza addictions since 1979. Now customers can enjoy their favorite Italian cuisine in the brand new location at 1411 West Highway 50 in O’Fallon. Moving recently from the previous location in O’Fallon, Owner Stephen Schieppe said the move has been fantastic for business. In fact, he has doubled the staff! “This location is much more visible in a high-traffic area with great signage and neighbors,” Schieppe said. “It was time to make a change.” The new restaurant has a better flow, Schieppe said, with lots of seating and a nicesized bar, with eight flat-screen TVs, that is accessible to outdoor dining. There are two banquet rooms: one to accommodate 40 and one for 50, or it can be opened up to seat 100. It’s the perfect spot for a large group after a ballgame, too. For now the menu is just the same, “but we may tweak it as we get settled in and the lunch buffet has been expanded to include fried chicken every day and a larger selection of food items,” he said. Lunch buffet hours have been extended, too, from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. Pronounced Ski-ah-pahs, the original restaurant in Lebanon opened on St. Louis Street by Dona and John Schieppe who were both teachers in the area. Born to parents from Italy, John Schieppe traveled from New Jersey to attend McKendree College, met his

bride and stayed for a lifetime. He knew the area was in need of authentic Italian food so he gathered family recipes from Italy and the East Coast, hung a shingle and rocked the pizza lovers of Lebanon. Soon the restaurant gained so many fans they had to expand… and expand again until they found their current spot at 402 South Madison Street/Route 4 in Lebanon. Then in 1993, the second location opened in O’Fallon, which just relocated. Think you and a buddy can eat a 29-inch pizza in 30 minutes? How about two friends and a 36-inch pie in 30 minutes? Stephen Schieppe said 10 pairs have polished off the 29inch and only two parties have finished the 36-inch. Can’t imagine a 36-inch pizza? One thing’s for sure it wouldn’t fit out the front door in the old location but it’s not a problem in the new spot. Contestants win prizes if they can meet the gastronomic challenge. The menu includes plenty of other delicious items including pastas, calzones, Stromboli and salads, said Schieppe. People come as much for the wings, though, with nine different varieties to choose from: mild, hot, scorching, sweet mild, sweet hot, honey mustard, honey barbecue, teriyaki and Caribbean jerk. Visit the Lebanon location on Route 4 across from Lebanon High School, (618) 537-4965; or the new O’Fallon location at 1411 West Highway 50, (618) 624-1900;
