Sarah was the typical little girl who dreamed about her wedding from the time she could walk. Every detail was planned except the final piece of the puzzle - a husband. Fortunately, she found him and got married in 2007 in the Pre-Pinterest era. She is still happily married and still enjoys scouring the internet for cute wedding ideas (that make her wish she could get married all over again).

When Andrea saw an online posting to be a freelance writer at Wedding Pioneer, she just had to say "I Do!" to a dream gig. Andrea has covered movie stars, musicians, and pop culture as a digital content creator. As a romance novelist, she's published several spicy romantic comedies. Finally, as a singer-songwriter (her passion project), Andrea has performed as a wedding singer and a semi-pro vocalist in original and cover bands. She also wrote a wedding song for a loved one, which she cherishes. Andrea loves event planning, and planning a wedding ceremony—and the party afterward—are the events of a lifetime. Big or small, intimate or grand, rebel or traditional, Andrea wants to help you create the wedding day of your dreams!

Wedding planner, event stylist and old school romantic, I love weddings so much I had two of my own. Before moving countries, I ran my own decor and event planning company for 8 years.
