Kentucky Bride Magazine Hires an Editor May 21, 2009

Jacki is pleased to announce that Julie Wilson has taken the position of Editor-in-Chief for Kentucky Bride Magazine.  Julie officially started May 4th and has been busy, busy, busy – since our Fall 2009 issue will be out July 12th at the Kentucky Bride Bridal Show.

I, {jaimeson}, hope to have Julie as a guest blogger – so much fun!

Below is a Press Release that was written on Julie’s behalf and I just wanted to share {as I am not the “editorial” guru of the group}



 Lexington Native Julie Wilson Brings More than a Decade of Experience to her Role as Editor-in-Chief


LEXINGTON, Ky. – A popular tool for Kentucky’s brides receives the icing on the cake. Veteran lifestyle journalist Julie Wilson brings 15 years of editorial and publishing experience to her role as Kentucky Bride’s new Editor-in-Chief.


“We are thrilled to have someone with Julie’s background and creativity leading the editorial direction of Kentucky Bride,” said Kentucky Bride Ltd. President Jacki Allen. “Julie’s wealth of lifestyle knowledge will help every Kentucky bride have the stress-free wedding of their dreams regardless of their budget or timeframe.”


Wilson is a University of Kentucky graduate who most recently was the executive editor for the award-winning Pulse, the magazine for the spa professional. Pulse is the magazine for members of the International SPA Association. Prior to that role, Wilson wrote about the packaged travel industry for Courier, the magazine for the members of the National Tour Association.


“It is so exciting to enhance my background in lifestyle writing and translate it into the thriving bridal market,” added Wilson. “Today’s brides are busy, budget-conscious, and they simply don’t have the time to wade through a mass of wedding information. At Kentucky Bride, we do the homework so that  planning their big day is just as much fun for them as the wedding itself!”


Launched in August 2008, Kentucky Bride is currently a bi-annual publication. More details are available at http://www.kentuckybridemagazine.com.
