Soiree by Simone Welcomes Associate Planner, Caroline McAndrew to Our Team!

Soiree is growing! 

We can't be more excited to announce the addition of Caroline McAndrew as our new Associate Planner! I feel super lucky to have her as part of our team as we begin to execute some seriously gorgeous weddings all over Central and Northern California for 2013. 

If you are one of our clients, you'll get to know her very well during the planning process and as well as trust her as a big support on your wedding day. 

Caroline comes to us with an extensive background in event and wedding coordination. In her most recent position, she coordinated weddings and special events for several five star resorts in Sydney, Australia. She's also a graduate from Stanford University and a former Olympic swimmer. Needless to say, our girl is smart, ambitious and competitive.

What I love most about Caroline is her passion for all things related to weddings, her amazing taste and her infectious positive energy. She's an absolute joy to have around and knows how to get things done with a big beautiful smile.

Getting to know Caroline

Simone: What is your sign?
Caroline: I'm a Gemini.

Simone: What is your favorite part about the wedding day?
Caroline: My favorite part of the day hands down is seeing the grooms face when he first sees his bride in her dress. Its so amazing to see a man's facial expression be so vulnerable and exposed.

Simone: We are total foodies here at Soiree. What is your favorite thing to eat?
Caroline: I love Ice Cream. There was a period in my life where I ate it every day.

Simone: People who know me know that I love to drink wine with my favorite people in my favorite places. Do you have a favorite varietal?
Caroline: I love a good "woody" Chardonnay.

Simone: We are lucky enough to travel to some of the most beautiful places to plan weddings. The dining experience is an important role in wedding planning. I love taking our team to some of the best places while we are in town. Do you have a favorite restaurant?
Caroline: Doyle's in Sydney AUS. It is a lovely seafood restaurant that is on the edge of the water at the East end of the Sydney Harbor. The serenity of the water with the view of the Harbor is incredible.

Simone: What do you love to do in your time off?
Caroline: Cooking has become a passion of mine over the past few years, I love the creativity that comes in creating new dishes and the relationships that are built around sharing a meal with friends.

Simone: Do you have a favorite place to vacation?
Caroline: My husband and I went to New Zealand with my sister on our way back from AUS, and the place is indescribable. The surreal mountains pouring into the clear blue lakes is majestic, and there are endless activities and things to do. It would be a dream to plan a wedding there one day!

Welcome to our team Caroline!
