To the current and one day western bride, the vendors that create magic, and anyone else that is reading this –
I can’t tell you how absolutely, genuinely happy it makes me to know that you are here. So happy, that I have happy tears streaming down my face as I write this. Western Wedding Magazine is something that I have poured my whole life into. I live, eat, breathe WWMag. There has been metaphorical blood, real sweat, and very real tears shed in the making of this dream.
I’ve spent most of my adult life wandering through the wedding industry dabbling in everything from designing invites, serving dinner with catering companies, creating floral arrangements, to owning a wedding décor company, even being the best worst bartender you’ve ever met, and recently starting my wedding photography business.
My heart has always been in creating beautiful things, and it is something that I can’t help but not do. Over the top runs through my veins. I don’t like to half a** anything. Whole a** only (unless its laundry).
In early January 2020 I set a goal for myself to be published in a magazine. I didn’t know if it was going to be for home décor (another love of mine), wedding photography, or ranch photography, but I was making it happen. In that moment, I realized that there wasn’t a wedding specific magazine out there or an online platform for me to send work to. Or even a community of western wedding professionals, vendors, and brides. I saw the need for it.
A couple of days later I reached out and created the team that is now the lungs of this operation. Together, we have spent countless hours and nights designing this concept, website, and Instagram. No detail has been untouched. From carefully and meticulously choosing font combos and brand colors to the HOURS it takes to choose photos that flow seamlessly through our Instagram while still creating engaging content.
From the moment Western Wedding Magazine started, our every intention was to create a space where brides and vendors could feel at home. We chose colors, fonts, and design elements specifically for you. When you are here we want all of those overwhelming feelings to float away. We want you to be able to access everything easily without confusion. We want you to feel like you are in good hands. We want you to feel at home.
I hope that in every detail of Western Wedding Magazine, you feel the unconditional love and passion that was poured into making it what it is today.
Thank you for being here.
All my love,
Thrilled to be featured as one of the Wedding Planners in your magazine! Thank You for sharing inspiration from other crazy and wild wedding lovers in the industry!
