Like many 2020 couples, Andrea + Jerry made the tough decision to postpone their much awaited wedding. However, a few months later they decided they didn’t want to wait any longer – and instead wanted to celebrate with their families and closest friends. The twist? They planned a SURPRISE wedding! And it was so. much. fun to play even the smallest role in their surprise wedding day!
Andrea + Jerry hosted Jerry’s dad’s 80th birthday party in their backyard that evening. At one point, Andrea slipped away to finish hair and makeup, and slip into her dress. Once she was ready, they surprised everyone with the Indianapolis 500 Gordon Pipers making their way around the back of the house, with Andrea and her mom making their surprise appearance at the back. It was then that guests realized they were also there for a surprise wedding!
But the surprises didn’t end there! After a beautiful ceremony in front of their closest family and friends, Sahms Catering provided a great meal while Emily Strait Photography took portraits of Jerry, Andrea and their family. During dinner, Jerry surprised Andrea with a guest appearance by their favorite musician, Griffin House, who had been secretly hiding away inside the house! Griffin sang throughout dinner and their first dance. Following dinner, Patrick and the LVB band played while everyone danced the night away!
While it may not have happened like they initially planned, Andrea and Jerry’s surprise wedding could not have turned out more perfect! And we were honored to play a part in their day!!
