Calamigos Ranch Wedding: Andie and Doug

Andie, Doug and I had kind of an unorthodox way of initially meeting each other to talk about their wedding: I was already hired by Andie's mother over the phone. Andie's mom lives on the east coast and wanted to make sure that everything was handled correctly by a pro. She knew that August is a popular month, so she interviewed me and pretty much hired me on the spot. I had butterflies in my stomach when I went to meet Andie & Doug in person. It was like a first date. I kept thinking "please be cool", "please be nice people".  Thankfully, they definitely were. Doug is charming with a fabulous Aussie accent, and Andie is sharp and witty and loves inappropriate comedies as much as I do. She and I kind of bonded over some weddings we had recently seen on Style Me Pretty, and she told me about the gorgeous table numbers she was making that were patterned after French perfume bottle labels.

Andie did a lot of DIY stuff for her wedding and we had a good time pulling it all together. The wedding day was FLAWLESS due to a hardworking team of great vendors and a wonderful group of family and friends.

Last Thursday, we were so excited to see their wedding featured on Style Me Pretty! To read all about the day from Andie's point of view, click HERE .

Thank you, Andie and Doug for being cool and nice people. It was an honor to be part of your wedding day!
