  • Have you looked through the current issue of @oregonbridemag out on shelves?? 

I cannot believe it's taken me so long to post about this, but I guess it just kind of got overshadowed by the chaos that is 2020. Nevertheless, it is truly exciting to be published in this 6-page spread along with some of my industry favorites! Check my stories for more details (and another cake that snuck into the mag!)
