Our Story


Samantha and Andrew met during a job interview. Though Andrew didn’t get the position, he did snag the girl!
 
For the proposal, family came to celebrate the arrival of Andrew’s Aggie ring in College Station. Samantha recalls, “Little did I know, they had replaced his Aggie ring with the engagement ring in the FedEx box. He opened it up and got down on one knee.” They chose Iron Manor for its sleek, timeless atmosphere, which was perfect for her vision. The venue offered a modern yet classic vibe that was tuned to her liking.
 
Regarding the rehearsal, The Wave on Lake Conroe seemed like the ideal spot for Samantha and Andrew. Not only was it close to the wedding venue, but the views were also breathtaking! They were met with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlooked Lake Conroe and a flavorful barbecue dinner that kept guests raving about the food, especially the brisket.
 
For her gown, Samantha chose Calle Blanch from Coreenas Bridal in College Station. Vernele’s New Orlean’s Bakery and Cafe made their delicious cake, and it was a hit!
 
Samantha’s advice for brides-to-be is not to be afraid to ask for help. She had attempted to take on everything herself, but this only caused unnecessary stress. By letting family members and friends help with the little things, Samantha learned to relax and enjoy the moment. 
 
Also, consider changing into comfortable shoes unless you are wearing flats. You’ll be surprised at how badly your feet will ache after a few hours of wearing your wedding shoes. 
 
And finally, Samantha recommends doing the first look with your husband-to-be. It substantially eased her pre-wedding anxiety and let them have a private moment to themselves before the ceremony. She feels that they both cherished the day, especially the moment when they read the letters they wrote to each other. Plus, she urges couples to spend money on hiring a florist. The final floral arrangements made all the difference in their reception area!
