Deanna & Andrew

Deanna Jacobs, Buffalo Grove, Ill., to Andrew Hazen, Novi September 25, 2020

DESPITE POSTPONING THEIR wedding from May to September, Deanna Jacobs says her wedding to Andrew Hazen “was a dream with all the pieces falling into place.” Jacobs and Hazen exchanged vows on September 25, 2020 at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Traverse City. “We feel so blessed that our love preserved through 2020 and we were able to get married this year,” Jacobs says. “Life brings so much joy when we gather together, and we were reminded of this as our family and friends filled our hearts with so much gratitude and appreciation.”

The couple experienced many special moments throughout the day, but two shine the brightest: seeing each other for the first time, and their first dance. “Our first dance was a special moment for the two of us as we took dance lessons leading up to our special day, one of the best decisions we made,” Jacobs says. After their first dance, the couple celebrated with their friends and family. “The smiles we saw and the laughter we heard from our guests as they danced the night away was one of the best feelings to experience as the bride and groom,” Jacobs says. “All of the love and dedication that went into planning our wedding day was worth the wait.”
