Ashley & Drew
Being a part of Ashley and Drew’s wedding weekend was such a joy for me! About a year before her wedding, Ashley and I met one night to start dreaming up her Palm Springs wedding. We had always kind of known each other in college through mutual friends but never really had the chance to get to know each other. Little did we know that after one night talking about wedding details, we would soon grow to become dear friends in such a short amount of time. When you get to do what you love for people you adore, it makes creating the day of their dreams so special!
Growing up, Ashley loved going to the desert to visit her grandparents and it meant so much to her to have antique furniture from her Grammie’s house and memories made in the little town she loved to visit. When Ashley found The O’Donnell House, she instantly fell in love with the quaint home nestled into the hillside overlooking the desert. After about a year and half engagement, a new job for Drew, and an almost completed Master’s Degree for Ashley, friends and family traveled to Palm Springs in crisp January to celebrate their much anticipated wedding!
Their wedding day was so perfect! Ashley had thought through every single detail, her photographers were sweet friends from childhood and there were personal touches on everything from welcome table down to the escort cards. Despite rain in the forecast, Ashley kept her cool and guests still had a great time! With a live band and food from the best Mexican restaurant in the desert, the night was flawless!
This wedding was so special to me because one of my dearest friendships today grew out of it! What’s even more fun is four months after coordinating their wedding, I got to be on the team that coordinated Ashley’s graduation from Chapman University with her Master’s Degree. What’s next…baby shower? ;) I hope so!
