Last week, I was in Las Vegas at WeddingMBA, a huge wedding merchant conference. I gave a presentation with the guys from the Lovesick Expo — and announced our new joint venture!

On September 18th 2014, I'll be sharing the stage with the two dudes from Lovesick Inc at the Wedding Merchants Business Association conference in Las Vegas. At the end of our presentation, we'll be debuting a new joint venture that's set to launch early next year. This is a full-on partnership between Lovesick and Offbeat Bride that is going to bring so many new opportunities to the wedding vendor community. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook on September 18th, around 1pm EST/10am PST to be the first to know what is in store for 2015 and beyond.
I'll be speaking on a panel at an event in Seattle hosted by Two Bright Lights, the service we use to make it easy for wedding photographers to submit weddings to Offbeat Bride.
- Monday, May 19, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
- Four Seasons Hotel Seattle, Cyprus Room (99 Union St, Seattle, WA 98101)

In June, I was a panelist at WordPress Seattle. The panel was focused on using WordPress to build a community, and we talked about stuff like the best time of day to post, how to foster constructive conversation instead of bitching, and how to pick the right name for your community. You also get to see someone address me as "YOU, female person on stage."
I used to be really good about getting out to industry events promoting my work and mingling and personal branding and bla bla, but a funny thing happens when you get really busy with running a small business: you stop having time to do anything other than run that small business! (Add a small child on top of a small business and hello, shut-in!) Anyway, over the past year or so, I've been making a concerted effort to get myself back out into the world of my various industries, and these past couple weeks have been EXTRA busy…
Last week I headed to Vegas for the Wedding Merchant Business Academy conference. I was joined by Megan (Offbeat Bride's managing editor, and my Associate Publisher), and two of our favorite event planners, Kelli from Seattle's Shindig Events and Laura from LA's Rebel Belle Weddings. In this post, I tell you why I'm bailing on my chromebook, who the rudest people at the conference were, and how you can get your own Offbeat Bride octopus temporary tattoo.
Big announcement! I've been booked to speak this fall at the Wedding MBA Conference in Las Vegas, October 2-4. This is a conference for wedding vendor types, and since it's more on the onbeat end of the spectrum, my talk will be angled towards explaining to these more traditional vendors why Offbeat Brides are awesome.
If any of y'all wedding business types are interested in attending, I've got a discount for Offbeat Empire readers!
