Get to Know a Wedding Blogger: The Overwhelmed Bride

Today’s wedding blogger interview is with Jenn Hallak, the owner and editor of The Overwhelmed Bride! Enjoy:

How did you get into blogging?

I was between jobs and looking for something to do until I found the perfect new position. I am the kind of person that always has to be doing something, so I decided to start a blog! I really didn’t think of promoting it or that it had any potential to become a full-time career for me, but it was really just for fun! And then in the first couple of months of writing about what I knew best, weddings, I began to gain a following without even trying and fell in love with blogging! So I then decided to stop my job search and make this my full-time career!

Get to Know a Wedding Planner: Sweet Ambiance Events

Today’s planner interview is with Madeline of Sweet Ambiance Events based in Birmingham, MI! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

My company is mainly focused on the non-traditional, fun, and creative wedding. I want my brides to enjoy being a part of planning their wedding and explore options to create a wedding that not everyone has already attended. I want them to be able to relax and enjoy their day, surrounded by people they love in a pretty setting with a well staffed service. I personally love the DIY that doesn’t look so DIY, the different, the casual, and the fun parts of weddings.

Catch Up with Friday Roundups

TGIFPhoto credit: Flickr

Has this week been a whirlwind or what? My husband received not-so-lovely news early last week that sent us packing to hit the road as quickly as possible for a long eight hour drive back to his home state. Thankfully, I managed to keep things under wraps with WeddingLovely while I was away (phew!) but am oh so happy to finally be back home. It’s safe to say that I’ll be doing absolutely nothing but catching up on some Zzz and unwinding this weekend. ;)

What’s been happening?

Get to Know a Wedding Blogger: Kristen Ley

Get to Know a Wedding Blogger: Kristen Ley

Hello lovelies! You may have noticed a few new regular features on the blog lately. Yeah, we like to keep things fresh ;) Here’s another new feature that we hope you’ll love: Wedding Blogger interviews. Kristen Ley of Something New for I Do is here with us to kick things off. Enjoy!

How did you get into wedding blogging?

Like many realize when in college (at that point where it’s too late to turn back!) I couldn’t see myself happily working in my field. I decided right then and there to start a business that tied in to what I was learning in public relations, but focused more on my passion for the wedding industry.

With support from my entrepreneurial parents, knowledge from my numerous internships, and a reckless failure is not an option attitude, I started Something New for I Do and began by posting blogs on my website. Shortly after, I was called to guest blog on other wedding professionals’ websites and eventually landed regular contributorship opportunities with outlets such as Huffington Post Weddings and Perfect Wedding Guide.
