Andrew and Amanda were married on a beautiful Friday in September surrounded by an intimate gathering of their closest friends and family. You could feel the love for these two by everyone in the room, and you could definitely feel the love that Andrew and Amanda had for one another.
They were married at the Polish Center of Wisconsin in Franklin, WI. The venue boasted a large, two-story window that was the focal point of the room during their ceremony. The attention to detail in the reception hall was noticed. The color fuchsia was carried out in everything, from the décor to the flowers, to the backlights. I especially thought the flowers were gorgeous, and the giant cupcake looked adorable!
Andrew and Amanda shared a private first look at Seven Bridges in South Milwaukee in a small wooded area overlooking Lake Michigan. It was a sweet and special moment that they shared together. We took a few bridal portraits with just them, and then their bridal party. One REAL moment during the bridal portraits was fighting off all of the mosquitos! They were out for blood and in swarms! Luckily, we came out mostly unscathed, but it certainly made for a humorous few moments watching everyone swat bugs away in between portraits! You’d never be able to tell from the photos, they did such a great job!
Amanda and Andrew’s ceremony was filled with emotion. One moment that almost brought people to tears was when Pastor Laurie described to the audience the power of a husband who prays for his wife. It got me all choked up! Instead of a traditional unity candle, they opted for a cross rope tying ceremony on a piece of wood that Andrew crafted and designed by a close friend.
After the cake cutting, toasts, and dinner, it was time to boogie down on the dance floor! One of the most memorable moments was from the father/daughter mash-up dance. I think this dance may have won the Chaviano Creative award for most enthusiastic father of the bride! Amanda and her dad danced to a mash-up of hit songs from the 90’s until now with synchronized choreography. I couldn’t believe how well they pulled it off!! The bride and groom also showed off their graceful dance skills with an elegant, choreographed first dance.
At the end of the night, everyone gathered outside the Polish Center of Wisconsin for a glow stick send-off! Andrew and Amanda are currently enjoying a magical honeymoon at Disney World and I know they must be having a wonderful time. We’ve had a few conversations sharing our love of Disney together, so I can’t wait to hear how much fun they had!
Andrew and Amanda … I wish you all the best in the first few days of marriage, and in all the many years to come!!!
