Here is Dana & Andrew’s guest blogging post. Enjoy reading and watching their Arthouse Edit!

Andrew and I got to know each other from our English & Music class in high school. He liked me but I didn’t know. After we graduated, we both went to Southern California for college, and he visited me a few times in school. I thought he was kind of cute so I asked him to a dance 2nd year in college… Then we started dating! 8 years later… we got married! One thing I loved during the wedding planning process was looking at all the magazines & websites and thinking about what our wedding would look like. I think my favorite part of planning was that Andrew was there the whole time, picking out all the details of the wedding with me! For the venue, we decided to look at places in Dana Point because my name’s Dana. A friend recommended us to look at St. Regis, and I really loved the place when we saw it. For the decor, I love pink – so everything is pink. We also had welcome baskets for out of town guests which was another personal touch. The best decision we made was having Details Details as our wedding planner. She was so good and always there to answer all my questions and concerns. I still remember Jeannie helping me with invitations and picking out bridemaids’ shoes until 2 or 3 in the morning! I don’t think the wedding would be the same without her! My best memory of the day was being very happy when I saw Andrew when I walked down the aisle. The other thing was when I walked into the reception… it was even better than I imagined it before the wedding. It made me so happy when I saw it! My advice to other brides is to enjoy the day because it is over so fast!”
