You could really feel the love at Andra and Mike's wedding in the way that their friends and family came together to make it happen. Leading up to the big day, Andra prepared hundreds of paper cranes that were visible throughout the venue to signify luck for the newly married couple in love. Everyone gathered for a mid-day ceremony and a lunchtime feast to celebrate these two. We are pleased to share images from the incredibly talented Promessa Studios.
Andra did her own hair and makeup (!) at home and then met up with Mike at the Endicott Estate. While Andra put on her gown (which was handmade by her mother), we pinned Mike and the groomsmen with beautiful handmade boutonnieres, also made by the bride's mom. Mike and Andra had a "first look" on the stairs of the estate while the vendor team pulled all of the pieces together of the decor and layout. Andra and Mike had many personal touches in the decorations, including a ceremony backdrop made of hundreds of handmade paper cranes, representing luck and prosperity for the couple in their new life together. Guests had the option to take a polaroid picture on a Hello Kitty camera and paste it into the couple's Harry Potter-themed guestbook. They also displayed video and other games around the venue for friends and family to browse. Their ceremony was personal and meaningful, led by a friend.
After the ceremony, guests mingled and enjoyed appetizers from B&M Catering. The best man, Long, acted as MC and introduced the couple intro the room, and they headed straight for the lunch buffet which had some delightful options, including the head from the pig roast! Guests enjoyed brief toasts from the bride's dad and the groom's dad on an audio system from A Taste of Music. Following the toasts, Andra and Mike cut their Konditor Meister cake and fed each other delicious mini pastries.
Guests truly got a taste of Mike and Andra's love at this special wedding. Congratulations to the two lovebirds! #phamilyweddingfeast
