Stylus, was our DJ. When I arrived he had an ear microphone for me and we did a sound check then he knelt down as if proposing! Not sure what he was proposing but my husband Dave snapped this photo of it. Jason always provides the best sound for me, brings a mic for me and I love doing weddings with him.
After the sound check we went upstairs into the ballroom where the reception would be.
The Sweetheart Table is all decked out in front of the picture window looking down into the courtyard.
GiGi's Cupcakes provided this display of fabulous cupcake with a cake on top for cutting.
A unique cake topper for Andy and Christine!Red Bridge Photography was our professional photographer. Another professional photographer, Brian Mullins, was her second shooter--an amazing team of the best photographers in the area!

A warm welcome to everyone who had traveled from near and far.
Then we remembered those who were no longer with us.
After surprising their parents with a sweet tribute, I got to tell Andy and Christine's wonderful story!
Lots of good laughs too!
Andy got a bit tearful hearing what Christine told me.
Christine loved what Andy told me too!
Time for the vows. These first vows were funny questions to them.
Then to the more serious vows during which they exchanged their rings.
Andy placed the ring on Christine's finger.
A closing blessing for our couple came next then the big pronouncement of marriage moment!
I invited Andy to show us the kiss as I stepped to the side out of the photo of the kiss.
And out they go!
I know Krystyna had a good time!!
