DeAndra Davidson - Owner

Tell us a little about yourself and your position at The Orchard.
Owner – I work in the office (accounting, mostly) My favorite part of working at The Orchard is giving tours, even though I don’t get to do too many. I love meeting people and hearing how they got engaged and the different ideas they have for their weddings.

Top three pieces of advice for couples who just got engaged?
Don’t stress while planning your wedding. It will be beautiful and no one will know what you forgot or didn’t get done.

Let her make the final decisions. Haha

Carve out some alone time after your ceremony to savor the moment. It will be over so fast!

If you could have your honeymoon anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Turtle Island, Fiji

Heidi Nettles

Heidi Nettles - Event Coordinator

Tell us a little about yourself and your position at The Orchard…
I am the Event Coordinator here at The Orchard. It is my job to make sure all of the details are taken care of and that the venue and the client are on the same page when it comes to the staff, amenities, floorplans, etc.

What sparked your interest in the event planning business?
It all started when my friends were all getting married and having babies and I would TOTALLY get carried away with the showers I was throwing.

If you could possibly narrow it down, what would be your favorite moment of a wedding day?
Without a doubt it’s sending the bride down the aisle. I love the butterflies and her anticipation when she is about to step out for all of her friends and family to see.

Favorite advice you received when planning your own wedding or special event?
Have FUN! Have fun planning the wedding. The BIG DAY day will go by really fast so have fun during the planning process.

Tell us a little about yourself and your position at The Orchard…
I was born and raised in Texas, I grew up just 5 minutes away from The Orchard. I moved out of state in 2007 and after 9 years of living in Las Vegas I am happy to be home in The Lone Star State again! There is nothing like Texas Hospitality! I am a single mom to one beautiful little girl, my Eden Jewel. She is 10 years old and in the 4th grade and we are both absolutely loving living close to our family.

If you could possibly narrow it down, what would be your favorite moment of a wedding day?
Well, I am very sentimental and really love all of the heartfelt and tear-jerking moments the best! I’d have to say my favorite part is when the bride and groom exchange their vows. Especially when they have written their own vows to one another. Hearing the love in their voices as they commit their lives to one another is so precious.

Favorite advice you received when planning your own wedding or special event?
Make sure you stay true to yourself and your style. Don’t get overwhelmed with Pinterest and the millions of different ideas and current fads. Be classically you & let that show through on your special day!
