We are family

The MelodyWed team is growing. Please welcome Laura Driedger, our newest member and Marketing Guru!

Laura and her husband Alex moved to the Bay Area this summer from Ontario, Canada. And we are so happy she did! We met through a mutual friend and immediately bonded over songwriting, quirkiness, and mac’n’cheese.

With a background in music and marketing, Laura will be aiding us on our social media, website, and blog creative front!

Getting to know you

J: Hi Laura, so happy to have you on board.
L: Hi Jessica!  I’m thrilled to be here, thanks for the welcome!

J: What’s your favorite song?
L: Oh man, this is a tough question, especially since I’m a Music major. There are so many genres I love: Pop, Classical, Jazz, and Rock to name a few. If I had to pick a favourite band, it would be most definitely Coldplay. I love every single one of their songs and I’m eagerly awaiting their new album A Head Full of Dreams, rumoured to be released this Fall!

J: What is your favorite thing about marriage?
L: The best part of marriage is really having a partner in life FOR life. Just knowing that we will always be there for each other in the great and not-so-great moments makes life so much more enjoyable and fulfilling. I also really love having someone to watch shows/movies and go on walks with.

J: What do you miss most about Canada?
L: Actually, I really miss my family and friends. They have been so supportive from afar, but it has definitely been tough not seeing them as often as I use to. I also really miss my favourite coffee shop: Tim Hortons. And saying ‘eh’ lots. It’s actually a thing in Canada, trust me.

J: What are you looking forward to as a new member of the MelodyWed family?
L: I’m really looking forward to my role within MelodyWed: working with you, Jessica, to creatively market your business to the general public. I recall from my own engagement how joyful, stressful and exciting this time is, and to be able to work with these couples to create the wedding of their dreams would be so rewarding. I’ve always thought working in the wedding industry would be amazing, and, as such, I feel super excited to begin my marketing role within the MelodyWed family.
