As some of you know, I have been on the hunt for an intern or two as a way to one, have some support around the Landlocked world, and two, give someone the opportunity to learn and grow within this industry. It has been quite the process – and I had so many wonderful individuals express their desire to help Landlocked Bride grow even more. It’s been a blessing, really.
Well, I am proud to officially introduce you to the two (yes, two) new Landlocked Bride Editorial Interns. In the coming weeks, you will see posts and content being shared by them both, in addition to my posts – only help to diversify the voice on the blog and bring great new content. Please join me in welcoming both Natalie and Lindsay!
I was born and raised a Midwestern girl who moved to Texas for college, but never forgot my roots. I have worked in the wedding industry my entire professional career, and have recently become a certified Wedding Consultant through Nuptial Essentials Curriculum and Instruction. I started out blogging for Chez Wedd, a local wedding blog in Austin, TX, and interning for one of the city’s best wedding coordinators, Barbara Hearne of Barbara’s Brides. And, because I wanted to put my BA in Spanish to good use, and I headed to Costa Rica for six months to learn the ropes of destination wedding planning with Weddings Costa Rica. I am currently back in Austin, where I am a member of the NEAWP, working for Barbara’s Brides, and excited to be blogging for Landlocked Bride!
As a Midwest girl currently living in the South… fish and chips have turned into shrimp and grits, 3 of my 5 radio pre-sets are set to Country and my current Midwest wardrobe has only been useful 1 month of the year. However, the things that haven’t changed are my love for cheese, the Packers, the Midwest and weddings.
After getting married last July, in my hometown of Green Bay, WI, I realized how much I truly loved the process of wedding planning and the enjoyment of searching unique and creative ways to add a personalized touch to such a special day. This passion has led me to start my own ETSY store and find a job at a local bridal boutique. I am so excited about this opportunity and helping share all the beautiful weddings the Midwest and Mountain West have to offer!
