Fighting the Wedding Industrial Complex, one article at a time
These are my observations from working in the wedding industry. In this line of work, I've lied about being engaged, realized what makes the best wedding gift, and learned the question that tells me if a couple will make it.
You're Not Alone
My clients often feel isolated as they plan their weddings. They can't talk about the hard parts because people think they're complaining, ungrateful, or second-guessing their choice. But I know something my clients don't.
When You'd Rather Not
Today's couples need more options as they plan their weddings. That's the idea behind this series: highlight lesser-known wedding planning options. It's not to make you feel that you have to pick any of them.
I also regularly write articles about weddings and marriage for outside publications. A sample of my work:
