  • Wedding: March 2013

I know this is too late for you,  @amandasf & @HollyCJ  but I just found out that we will be the feature wedding on March 10 (our wedding day).

I pitch media for a living… we aren’t high powered anything (though I do have some illustrious rabbis in my family), don’t live in NY (but I was born there and FI lived there for school and work for 10 years), and we are just regular people.

I don’t know why or who gets featured in the regular wedding announcements section, though I know they get so many that they can’t publish them all but the woman who called to speak to us told us that she loved our story and how we fell in love. Here is the story – http://bios.weddingbee.com/topic/how-does-our-garden-grow-4#axzz2MR6LxMYf

As a media professional, I suggest telling your story in an interesting way and find something that makes you two unique. Also, use proper grammar and good writing structure.  Remember, they ready thousands of these. Make yours jump out!

Actually, we did end up being selected, and our wedding was featured the day after our wedding (we got married on a Satruday night).  We also don’t live in NY, and are just regular people.  I do work for a nationally known non-profit and DH is a lawyer.

We were surprised we got selected.  We didn’t ask why we were though.  We joked we were in a “slow” week. What did help, I think is that we submitted our stuff very very early (like as soon as we could).  So maybe it is first come, first serve.

We were also featured in the Washington Post.
