Well Romancers, we really can’t believe it, but 2015 is ALREADY starting to kick some major ass. This week I was invited to participate in a panel at the one and only WeddingWire World, a two day educational conference for wedding professionals, thanks to the ever-amazing Kathryn Hamm of GayWeddings.com and Capturing Love Guide fame. I’ve had the absolute honor and pleasure of collaborating with Kathryn before (she invited me to be a part of a panel at the HRC as part of her Capturing Love Guide tour AND she invited our crazy #PopUpRomance participants to be a part of the #WedWeCan group in the Pride Parade last year) and I am just so stoked to get to work with her again.
Kathryn will be moderating a Pro Panel on Day 2 of WeddingWire World called “Serving Today’s Modern Couple.” I will be joined by a handful of other incredibly talented wedding industry business owners, including Ross Knight, and Bethel Nathan, as well as Kyle Mihalcoe, a recent newlywed. We will be discussing our views on what the “modern” couple really is, what they are looking for in regards to their wedding, and how wedding vendors can best serve them. I really can’t wait to share what I’ve learned about the modern couple through blogging AND wedding coordinating these past few years.

As a blogger I feel like I get to help shape this notion – as I get to choose the images and couples I publish on my website. As a wedding coordinator I get to actually work alongside these “modern” couples helping them to plan their modern wedding (in a sometimes too-traditional city). If you are a wedding professional planning on attending WeddingWire World – do please stop by the panel on Day 2 (or at least say “hi” after!).

But wait! There’s more! The fine people at WeddingWire have graciously given me a coupon code for those Capitol Romance readers & sponsors out there that might want to attend! Just use the promo code BREE125 to secure tickets for $125 each. You can either go to WeddingWire World’s website and click register and manually enter the code on the EventBrite page, OR use the direct link here.
I truly cannot wait to be a part of this amazing event & panel and really hope to see some familiar faces (and meet some new ones too!). See you on March 17th!
