    Professional Wedding Writer

    United States - Last active: 22 days ago - Portfolio: 5

    I have years of experience as a full-time freelance writer and proofreader PLUS six years as a full-time wedding DJ + officiant. I have owned a wedding planning business, a destination wedding business, + a bridal boutique--there are few angles of the wedding world with which I'm not familiar. My wedding expertise has appeared on Offbeat Bride, the Gig Masters' wedding blog, and in "Wedding Planner Magazine." I'm a Guest Expert Blogger for Wed Loft + the wedding writer for "Mobile Beat" DJ magazine. I have taken a long hiatus from Elance, and during that time, my original profile was not saved. I had a 5 star rating and 40% repeat customers. I have some screenshots of old reviews in my profile.
