Friday Favors: WedSmith + More!

Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share a few exciting things going on. First, is WedSmith. WedSmith is Utah’s Premier Conference for Utah Wedding Professionals and will be held on September 28th. And, I am totally honored that I have been asked to speak at this event! I am seriously flattered – and a bit nervous! But really, I can’t wait to meet and talk with everyone. There are some other AMAZING people there speaking such as Sylvia Weinstock (cake above by Sylvia), Anne Barge (wedding dress above designed by Anne), Jonathan Canlas (photo above right by Jonathan), Tessa WoolfLara CaseySaundra HadleyDavid Perry, and Tara Thorp to name a few!

I’m going to be talking about how to maximize your blog’s potential, submitting your work to the right blogs for your business, and how getting your work featured on the right blogs can really propel your business. I think it’s going to be a really amazing day! Learn more about WedSmith here. Also, if you are planning to go and have a specific question you’d love me to answer or area to talk about, please leave a comment or send me an email and I’ll make sure to cover that also! I can’t wait to meet everyone – get your tickets now before they sell out!

Some other fun things from around the web in case you missed them:

Remember this couple? I am in LOVE with their first anniversary photos by Jill Thomas.

If I had a beach wedding, this is what I’d want it to look like.
