Episode 25: Time to Say Goodbye

Wedding Planner Podcast.

Episode 10: Social Media. Did we out think the room?

Las Vegas Wedding Planner discusses social media.

Did we out think the room and ruin the medium? Are we too dedicated to the pretty, and not showing enough of the real? I posed a behind the scenes photo and go over 2700 likes, while pro pics maybe only get 200.
