andria: ivoh.

One of my favorite parts of my job is meeting other wonderful people in the industry. Andria, of Andria Lewis Events, is one such person. She is a true wedding planner extraordinaire, and works hard to make the day run smoothly. One thing that we share, and probably my favorite thing about her, is that she is passionate about the couples she works with. She forges a relationship that goes beyond professional, and she wants their day to be perfect, not because they are paying her to, but because she truly cares.

Andria turns 40 soon, and is planning a proper party filled with her own personal style. We arranged a photo shoot that would help her celebrate not only her birthday, but where she is in life. She has made some difficult decisions in order to get where she is, and she is proud of what she has worked so hard to achieve. To her, 40 isn’t a number. It’s a milestone. And she intends to celebrate it with the respect it deserves.

Naturally, Andria payed close attention to details, especially her accessories, which I adored. Special thanks to Tasha Anders, who did a wonderful job with her makeup.

When Andria showed up to the shoot with a bottle of champagne, it only confirmed that we are soul mates. Intended to relax her, she said she brought it because she hates to have her photo taken, but I still don’t believe her.

Andria wears heels better than anyone I know. Ed’s photo on the right.

Andria is especially proud of her legs, and I don’t blame her! I’d trade with her in an instant.

She has the best nose-crinkling laugh. I’d like to think I said something especially funny here, but it was probably the champagne starting to do its job.

She had the help of a stylist, Opulent Couturier, help her choose her outfits, and I loved the hat!

We just had to get silly for a few.

Love these!

At this point, we were having so much fun, that the seriousness didn’t last long.

Happy birthday, Andria. I can’t wait to celebrate your success, your beauty, and your style with you this weekend! Keep being proud of what you’ve accomplished and celebrate all that you are. Happy IV-oh! Cheers!

    Thank you so much for those words, Terrica! You make me blush, dahling!

    And CAAAAATHERINE…it means the world to me that you are proud of me. I was just a little student worker trying to figure out life when you met me. And you’ve always had poise and grace under pressure. I’ve always admired that about you. xoxo
