Real Wedding

Andrea + Austin Wedding | December 1st

How They Met

The Bride // We met on sort of a blind date. My friend Kenzie and his friend Josh invited each of us to go to a red wings hockey game. I knew of him from back in the day but never had a conversation. We hit it off really fast and it’s been history ever since. We were hosting our house warming party, Austin had everyone gather outside so we could open presents. I did not want to open presents in front of everyone because I didn’t think that’s what you did and I don’t like being the center of attention. He ended up giving me a pizza box and I opened it then shut it not realizing what written in the pepperonis was “wife?”  Austin was down on one knee and asked if I read it so I opened it back up and everyone started laughing and I said yes! He had been planning on this since August when we moved in. It was the biggest surprise of my life’s.

Their Wedding

The Bride // Our wedding is very rustic, elegant and modern while incorporating beiges, taupes, creams, whites and a lot of greenery. Our wedding reception at The Stables featuring huge farmhouse style doors, barrels, and stalls. Our coordinator Your Perfect Day helped us so much throughout the entire process by getting all of our ducks in a row at the rehearsal to making sure everyone was where they needed to be the day of the wedding. They did an amazing job. We loved working with Lindsay from Luckybird Photography. She helped us through the whole wedding process and always was emailing me tips and advice for the wedding. She was so funny to work with and all of our bridal party loved her. We love our pictures so much and are so excited to look back on those for the rest of our days. Extra Virgin Catering provided the food and a month later we are still receiving compliments. It was amazing!!! Greg made sure I was happy and did anything to make sure everything was perfect. Chris from Life Celebrations was our DJ, he was exactly what we wanted. We are still getting asked for his information for our family & friends who want to use him. Brigitta from Ella Flora designed our flowers. Our center prices turned out amazing and all of the flowers were beautiful. Tori Pinciotti our videographer was amazing. We just wanted a simple overall day from the wedding and she did just that and added her own little touch to it. The video is something we will watch and cherish forever.
