Rita Nowakowski

Miss Rita is a marketing specialist and really knows what works best for our clients!  Being in the advertising business for over 30 years, she has kept up to date on how to market for success! Although she would like to be hitting a golf ball and demanding that it “GET IN THE HOLE", she is passionate about Austin Wedding Day Style and all of her clients.  Austin Wedding Day Style is a reflection of her and she has her touch on every page.  Over the past 17 years she has helped each of her clients be as successful as they can be.

Cheryl Smith

Marketing Executive
Joined AWDS as a marketing executive and new business developer for both Austin Wedding Day Style magazine and web site. With over 11 years experience in demonstrating our products and making sales, Cheryl will apply her rodeo skills and strong expertise in roping by tying three of your legs together if you don't buy our product. Cheryl has a long-term strategic plan for every client she meets with and is very passionate about her work. Cheryl has been an important member of the AWDS marketing team.

Don Nowakowski

Executive Editor/Accounting Director
Don is the glue of Austin Wedding Day Style. He takes care of accounting, ad production, editing, magazine distribution and keeping all the AWDS girls out of trouble. We are pretty sure his office is located on the golf course.  If you ever call him and he sounds a little short of breath and the reception sounds windy, he's definitely in his "office".  He's very detailed oriented so rarely does anything get by our Don!
