Today’s wedding blogger interview is with Allison of Engaged & Inspired, one of my favorite local wedding blogs! Funny story, once I was at an event in San Francisco and was going to be driving all the way back down to San Jose, and found another person who needed a ride… who turned out to be Allison’s husband, Ian! From there, I was able to finagle a coffee meetup with Allison, which was awesome and she is truly passionate about what she does.

Don’t forget to check out The Lab, a bridal event that Allison co-founded, and tickets are on sale now for the January event!

How did you get into wedding blogging?

I actually started with a fashion startup working with first time designers. I had an online fashion boutique and fashion blog. Somewhere in there I found the wedding industry and fell in love. My husband (who designs and builds my websites) wouldn’t build me a wedding blog until we got engaged. The day after he proposed I hit the ground running to start Engaged & Inspired and haven’t looked back since!

I’m a huge fan of alternative wedding blogs, especially those that promote a down to earth affair that really captures the individual couple’s spirit, rather than just the wedding industry current trends! So pleased to have Kat of Rock n Roll Bride here for our latest blogger interview, and make sure to check out her site!

How did you get into wedding blogging?

My story isn’t that remarkable or different to that of many people who get into the wedding industry. I started my blog when I was planning my own wedding to Gareth in 2007. At the time I didn’t even consider this could become a career, I simply wanted a place to collate all my wedding ideas and inspiration.

Throughout my planning I discovered American wedding blogs. I loved the instant nature of blogging – how you could comment and feel part of a community. I wanted to be a part of that. After my wedding was over I didn’t want to give up weddings or blogging so I decided to morph my blog into a place for alternative wedding inspiration. Although I loved the wedding blogs I’d found throughout my plans, none of them catered to the specific kind of bride or style of wedding that I wanted – the alternative, the offbeat and the Rock n Roll.

Today we’re doing something a little bit different — interviewing some of our favorite wedding bloggers! Sara from Burnett’s Boards has been a good friend to WeddingLovely (see her guest posts, The Importance of Inspiration Boards as well as Offbeat & Unique Hawaiian Wedding Venues), and we love that her wedding blog is all about inspiration boards!

How did you get into wedding blogging?

I was in the midst of what I like to call a ‘third life crisis’ – I’d just started teaching at a new school and I’d moved from teaching high school to middle school and it just wasn’t jelling with me. So I started looking around over Christmas break and found a blogging gig at Modern Weddings Hawaii. I did that in the evenings and finished out the school year. In March, about a month after starting at Modern Weddings Hawaii I decided to start my own blog dedicated to the one visual aspect of wedding blogs that I adored the most – inspiration boards.

Where are you located?

Currently – Honolulu, Hawaii, but I went to high school and college in Texas and grew up in the UK.
