Lindsay admittedly stumbled into the wedding world after replying to a Craigslist ad immediately following her graduation from the University of New Hampshire. She quickly fell in love with the industry and hasn’t looked back. Recently celebrating six years with Fantasy Sound Event Services, Lindsay is also the Director of Communication for the Silicon Valley NACE chapter as well as the Secretary for WIPA San Francisco.
Jessica has been actively involved in education for years. She earned her degree in Liberal Studies from Azusa Pacific University, then completed her teaching credential at Saint Mary’s College of California. She taught in Castro Valley Unified School District for nearly a decade,then took a break from teaching to raise her children. She is an avid reader, enjoys photography and painting, and is passionate about helping others learn and grow. She is excited to now join her husband, Kevin, as a part of the Fantasy Sound Event Services team, and looks forward to overseeing the content for WeddingIQ.
WeddingIQ was launched in 2012 by Jennifer Reitmeyer as a space to talk about the business of weddings. There are so many gorgeous blogs out there about all the beautiful, creative aspects of the wedding industry, but way fewer resources for the less glamorous parts of what business owners do. With content ranging from specific, implementable advice to passionate, manifesto-style rants, the blog quickly became known as one of the most fearless voices in the industry.
In 2015, Jennifer brought on fellow wedding professional (and friend) Kyle Bergner as co-editor, and relaunched the site with a new dedication to supporting small business owners.
