As we learned from her father’s heartwarming welcoming address , Andrea is the type of girl who always knew what she wanted, and would stop at nothing until she got it. This meant it was pretty much game over for Matt once Andrea had her sights set on him. As we would learn after photographing their fun, colorful engagement session in Brooklyn earlier this year – this was not a couple who took life so seriously all the time. There’s always enough time to squeeze in a little bit more fun, laughter or an impromptu game of pinball. Fun fact: did you know Matt restores old arcades in his spare time? This explained why Andrea was buried behind a row of pinball machines in their basement, all in various states of disrepair (but oh goodness, look at all that wonderful window light!). After a beautiful ceremony at St. John Vianney, they partied their tails off at the Rock Island Lake Club. While we’re certainly no strangers to weddings at the Rock Island Lake Club, it was certainly game over for us when these two pulled out all the stops for this wonderful celebration.
