Andrea and Joey 7-14-12 (Stephanie)

Andrea and Joey had their ceremony in Joey's parent's cute, country backyard. They had their reception right down the road at Andrea's house. Both located in North Branch, the country setting went perfectly with their rustic, country theme. Lately, I've been in love with rustic-natural type wedding decor so I was so in love with Andrea and Joey's whole wedding. I really wish I had taken more photos as every detail was adorable!

Teemie's Country Blooms provided flowers. A family friend made the cake, and catering was provided by Northern Catering. Andrea and Joey's photographer was from Creative Images Photography.

A lot of the decor for the wedding was DIY. I love this old door that was used as a hanger for the escort cards.
A family friend put together the candy buffet. It turned out awesome!

 The cake stand was a big piece of tree stump. The centerpieces also were a piece of tree stump, although smaller than this stand, that had a lace doily that was topped with a candle and four different size and type vases/bottles with different types of flowers and greenery in them. I loved them and the rustic look that went so well with the rest of the wedding decor and location!

They turned out very similar to this inspiration photo.

I loved the girls' dresses and the guys' suspenders!

Instead of a DJ or band, Andrea and Joey had dueling pianos. Dave from Piano Wars was so awesome to work with and the guests loved the dueling pianos! They were definitely unique and memorable and kept the guests dancing all night long, as well as a great alternative to a traditional band or DJ.

Andrea and Joey are such a happy-go-lucky couple and were such a pleasure to work with. It was hard not to catch onto their bubbly spirits and feel the love that not only they have for one another but that their friends and family have for them.

Congratulations Andrea and Joey. Thanks for letting Grand Jour Events be part of your special day!
