Andrea and Michael’s love story began when they first met at Michael’s cousin’s wedding in the summer of 2006. Andrea was a bridesmaid and Michael was the master of ceremonies. When the beautiful Andrea asked a nervous Michael if he was in fact the MC for the evening, all he could reply was “yup.” The only word was spoken to his future wife that entire night. However, as fate would have it, they met again at another cousin’s wedding. This time Michael, who didn’t want to let fate slip through his fingers again, managed to do a little better than “yup.” After that night the couple started a long-distance relationship.
When it came to planning their wedding, Michael handled the entertainment portion, utilizing his own experiences as the basis of criteria for vendors such as photographers, videographers, musicians, lighting, and sound operators. Andrea employed the use of many vendors featured in Elegant Wedding magazine as the basis for comparison when picking everything from designers and florists to venue and furniture for her wedding. The décor at the reception was a perfect blend of Old Hollywood, The Great Gatsby, and a touch of contemporary glam.
