Samantha & Andrew

How they met: "I interviewed Andrew for a job in College Station. We ended up not hiring him, but we saw each other much later on at a tailgate! He asked me for my number and the rest was history! We always joke that he didn't get the job but at least he got the girl!"

The Proposal: "With everything shut down due to COVID, A&M was not hosting their typical Aggie ring ceremonies. We had planned for our families to come to town for him to open his ring package and take some photos to make it special. Little did I know, they had replaced the Aggie ring with the engagement ring in the FedEx box. He opened it up and got on one knee!"

The Venue: "I had been to a few weddings at Big Sky Barn and followed Iron Manor’s Instagram when they began construction. I immediately knew that was where I wanted to get married one day and didn’t even look at any other locations! There is truly nothing else like it in the area and you can tell how much thought went into all of the details. I wanted something modern yet classic and Iron Manor definitely made that come true!"

The Gown: Calle Blanch from Coreenas Bridal in College Station

Bride's Advice: "My biggest advice to brides in the planning process is do not be afraid to ask for help. I wanted everything to be perfect so I tried to do it all myself and ended up just stressing out and not enjoying the small things. Letting go and letting family members and friends help take care of calling vendors or arranging pick up and drop offs for items allowed me to relax especially in the two weeks leading up to the big day."

Wedding Date: April 9, 2021
