Columbus Weddings (formerly Columbus Bride) is a regional magazine that caters to brides and brides-to-be of Central Ohio. In 2011, the magazine was given the Gold Medal Award in its circulation class by the City & Regional Magazine Association, which stated, “If you’re looking for a Bible on planning a wedding in Central Ohio, Columbus Bride is it.” The magazine is published twice a year, with tips on new trends and first-person accounts accompanying the classic advice that every bride needs.
Prior to the fall/winter 2013 issue, the same basic articles were re-run each issue with minor updates to account for changing trends and styles. The following articles were originally written by a different author, but updated with my rewrites.

The magazine has a very strong online presence as well. The bulk of my original writing for this publication while I was employed full-time was for the magazine’s blog. My personal samples included local wedding write-ups and generic features on wedding trends (such as bridal emergency kits, destination weddings, engagement videos, bridesmaid invitations, custom rings, and more) and events (bridal shows, bridal “boot camps,” and sales), though they have since been removed during site renovations.
