Chris Christen loves those little wedding moments that make great stories throughout a marriage. Every time she looks at her diamond (which she adores), she’s reminded of the weekend she got engaged. She was at a party, showing off the ring, when an acquaintance examined the setting and told Chris, “You know, honey, the jeweler will let you trade up.” Then there was the poorly chosen wedding dress purchased at a bridal shop that didn’t allow returns (the dress still hangs in Chris’ closet, never worn); and the wedding cake that arrived a day late and then collapsed on its pillars on the newlyweds’ dining room table. “We still laugh over the cake-cutting photo,” Chris says. “It’s a great reminder to simply take life as it comes.” Contact Chris about the magazine, stories, freelance and speaking engagements.
Heidi Hoffman is planning her own wedding. Having been engaged since September 2012, she couldn’t imagine a more fitting internship. She is in the throws of everything wedding and is a relatable source for our brides. “Let’s face it, I’d be spending all my spare time trolling through wedding blogs, websites and photos anyway. It’s perfect.” Heidi is our social media bombshell and manages our Wedding Essentials blog. Contact Heidi about future blog post ideas or send her a tweet.
Molly Lorincz never imagined she’d be an East Coaster. Born and raised in Lincoln, she found herself moving to Rhode Island after being swept off her feet by a Massachusetts native while studying at UNL. Seven years of marriage and three daughters later, she is still immersed in the wedding world. “I work for the premier catering company on the East Coast, and see firsthand the extravagant, trend-setting weddings that every Midwestern girl dreams about!” She is bursting with style ideas for brides from coast to coast. Visit Russell Morin Fine Catering for more ideas from Molly (especially if you are planning an East Coast destination wedding!).
