Andrew Scott Events began four years ago in August of 2010. “It has quickly become the leading force in the wedding industry,” commented Zecher.

 

His goal, Zecher says, is to provide his clients with events that go beyond what they could even dream of.

 

The Andrew Scott Events division of the company provides upscale floral arrangements for weddings and private events, as well as full service event planning options for any occasion.

 

“We also have unique gifts and home decor items as well,” added Zecher.

“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”

 

The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against.
