Five months after hosting a $50,000 wedding at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida, the bride, La'Reese Michelle Darville, was jailed on fraud and grand theft charges.
Employed by the Partners III Pawn Shop in Port St. Lucie, of which her father is a part-owner, La'Reese is accused of using company cards to pay for her wedding. Police say the bride did have permission to charge $10,000 to her father's credit card--but she did not have permission for the $39,286.24 additional charges made to other accounts.

The charges included venue fees and payments to wedding photographers and planners. La'Reese's father, Leroy Felix, said he knew nothing of the latter charges.
From the Daily Mail: "Speaking to police, she allegedly admitted to using the account 14 times for her wedding but that she intended on repaying the business in full. She said she had already paid back more than $17,000--although she had no record of it. Photographs taken of the big day reveal lavish touches, from rose petals lining the aisle and an arch of white flowers showcasing their wedding cake. Guests watched the ceremony in the casino's grand ballroom before partying at a reception and dinner that ended at midnight."
La'Reese, the stores operations manager, was in charge of handling the company's finances. That's certainly one way to "handle" them.
