Bridal Veil Dream Authors

img_0002_#1 Janet Placek, Bridal Veil Dreams Owner

What do interior decorating, activity planning, and weddings have in common?  Janet Placek and Bridal Veil Dreams.  Janet has found her true passion in bringing together expert wedding bloggers, a wedding vendor guide, affordable wedding décor, and the site’s most popular feature, The Hope Chest.  Here couples can browse, and resell their wedding goods, so that budget-conscious brides can take advantage of used wedding gowns and other treasures.

After winning a battle with cancer, Janet found a new freedom and energy to pursue her gifts of creative design. Janet is a gifted administrator, experienced in event planning for all ages and all stages. The experience and joy of planning her own wedding generated this new business focused on connecting brides and vendors.

Through Bridal Veil Dreams, Janet hopes to make the wedding planning experience exciting and affordable for people in the Pacific Northwest and across the country. Here, brides and their families will create amazing wedding experiences.

Traveling allows me to explore different cultures and people outside of my day-to-day environment.  This creates an opportunity for me to both learn and grow, and I’m excited to pass on helpful information to travelers at Bridal Veil Dreams.  I have traveled since I was a young boy and have explored much of North America at one time or another. I have also been to Hawaii and to the edge of South America. I love exploring the Caribbean and the Bahamas.  St. Thomas Island is one of my favorites.

Julia Panchenko ~ Freelance writer

Julia is a writer by day, as she is currently a Content Coordinator/Editor for a large internet conglomerate, and by night. Once her eight hours are up, she runs out of the office to work on creative copy and blog posts for a luxury wedding company and a variety of other clients in the fashion and entertainment industries.

She loves working in the wedding industry the most, as she enjoys watching two people just be ridiculously happy together. The fashion doesn’t hurt, either. At Bridal Veil Dreams, Julia often posts about the latest in bridal fashion, wedding trends, fun DIY projects, and sometimes just plain ole’ practical stuff that she hopes proves useful to a busy bride.

When she’s not sitting at her keyboard trying to make some magic happen, she can be found running around LA or baking up a storm (much to her friends’ and family’s delight).

If you’re ever in need of a writer/editor, feel free to send Julia a message and she’ll see if she can work some of that magic to meet your copy needs.
