Today’s wedding planner interview is with Dr. Janell of Married by Medicine, based in DFW Airport, TX. Enjoy!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I’m a doctor who happens to love all things wedding! A lot of people look at my business name and think, what does that mean? Once I explain that I am an urgent care physician by day and a rockstar wedding planner by night (and weekend), they totally get it! I believe that being a doctor is much like being a wedding planner… you have to think on your feet, adapt quickly to emergency situations, and be able to listen to and understand many different types of personalities and people.

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Columbus, OH : Stephanie West Photography (1)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Stephanie West of Stephanie West Photography, based in Columbus, OH! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I started my photography business about 10 years ago with a Kodak point-and-shoot camera, photographing friends and family for extra money for our family. Now I have a stellar camera and my skills have improved immensely. I love shooting weddings more than anything and I’m constantly learning and improving my style and technical abilities. My style has evolved into a very authentic, lifestyle form, capturing real moments between real people. I love photographing love. And I love photographing light, whether it’s natural or artificial light that I have created with an off camera flash in the snow. Love and light. That’s what my business is about.

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I’ve always been obsessed with paper goods, but it wasn’t until a couple years ago that I started on wedding invitations. I started doing some graphic design work for a small stationery company and immediately fell in love with the work and the process of helping couples celebrate their love.

Meet a Wedding Stationer in Cocoa Beach, FL: Concertina Press (7)

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Ruth Bleakley, Owner/Designer at Concertina Press, based in Cocoa Beach, FL! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I’ve always loved paper and stationery stores – I remember one of my favorite hobbies as a kid was collecting and trading stickers! After college, I got my dream job working at a small stationery store on Cape Cod. It was there I put my graphic design degree to work creating wedding invitations for couples who came in the shop. When that store closed in 2011, it was a turning point for me because I decided to take my own designs online and started Concertina Press. I decided to specialize in nautical wedding invitations because I love the ocean and am fortunate to live close by (even now that I live down here in sunny Florida!). I also love old science illustrations, so I often use them to create unusual and beautiful invites for folks getting married at the beach or even at the aquarium. My Cape Cod Save the Dates and Cape Cod wedding invitations remain popular – that’s where I was married too, in 2007.
