Beautiful wedding in Mazeppa, MN... With a Frank Sinatra impersonator!
Andrea and Michael got engaged at Chanhassen dinner theater. The couple had planned for a dressy night out with dinner followed by a night of live music. After dinner, they had to move to another room for the music and Michael pulled Andrea aside and got down on one knee to propose! They spent the rest of the evening enjoying their favorite Frank Sinatra songs and soaking in that freshly engaged feeling!
While their wedding plans were anything but straight forward (thanks COVID!), these two made it work. They made all of their wedding choices with their personalities in mind. The couple loves Frank Sinatra (clearly) and chose to have a Frank Sinatra impersonator come out and sing for their wedding reception... How cute is that?!
They also wrote their own vows, and we are sure there wasn't a dry eye after hearing these two share their love, especially being surrounded by such gorgeous scenery! Their two dogs also got to have their special moment in their humans' big day.
We are living for all of the personal details from their wedding. From the custom toasting flutes, to the cute hand sanitizer favors, to her absolutely breath taking bridal bouquet. And let's not forget those desserts...We wish we could have been there to taste them! YUM!
Andrea's best wedding advice for future brides is:
Budget first! Know what you can and are willing to spend and then use that to determine what you will get. If you don’t set a budget ahead of time, the cost can really run away with you. Know what you want to spend the most on.
We absolutely agree with this important tidbit of advice, no need to start the next step of life in debt! Be sure to check through our budget series to help create a realistic budget for you and your significant other.
Andrea and Michael, your day looked absolutely breathtaking and certainly full of love. Thank you for sharing your story with us!
