James has a keen interest in understanding how the world around him works, so he earned his Bachelors of Science in electrical engineering at the University of Scranton. After a couple of years in sales and marketing working across Europe and Asia, he attended Fordham University for his MBA in marketing and corporate finance. After business school, James was a key member of the management team which successfully built, internationalized, and sold a shopping search engine called ShopWiki.
James and his wife honeymooned in Phuket, Thailand and were undeterred by the military coup d’etat which started days before they got married and traveled halfway around the world.

Kimberly has worked on both sides of the web publishing world throughout her professional life, from building websites to writing and editing. Through her work on Internet Brands’ websites, she focuses on creating a user experience that brings carefully researched articles on wedding planning, style trends, relationship advice, and budget information to couples across the globe.
While not married yet, Kimberly loves helping brides and grooms plan out their perfect wedding. Having attended numerous weddings over the years, she still feels like it never gets old. Each wedding is a wonderful reflection of each couple’s personality and love for each other.
In her spare time, Kimberly enjoys travelling, volunteering with local animal rescues and Habitat for Humanity, and working on various DIY projects. While not yet married, she’d love to honeymoon someplace with a storied history to explore such as Egypt, Peru, or Cambodia.

She got her start in the publication industry working on her high school newspaper in Redondo Beach, California, where she spent deadline nights designing page layouts and editing news stories. Following that initial exposure into journalism, she became the managing editor at her award-winning community college newspaper. It was there she met her husband, who beat her in a popularity contest to become editor-in-chief. (She may still be bitter about that.)
Based in Los Angeles, Angela enjoys spending time on the West Coast with her family, whether it’s camping in the Sierra Nevada Mountains or crabbing in Washington’s Puget Sound on the 4th of July (an annual tradition for the past 20 years). She also loves vintage furniture and is always scouring estate sales for her next great find.
Angela and her husband got married seven years ago, when “Pinterest weddings” were on the cusp of their popularity. She still has all those Pinterest boards saved with her wedding planning details. (Some still cute. Some, not so much.) With the help of her parents, she was able to pull off a backyard reception with 100 guests. (She’s still not sure where everyone parked.) They honeymooned on a cruise from Catalina Island, California, to Mexico. As a Southern California native, it was the first time she’d been to either locale.

At work, Katherine is most energized when focusing on the user and employing an empathy-based approach to developing products that consumers love to use. Outside of work, Katherine enjoys spending her time with animals, visiting new cities, reading a good book, or sharing a meal with family and friends. After watching too many food documentaries, Katherine dreams of having a honeymoon in Europe, going from Italy to France to Spain and trying all the amazing food.

Karen graduated with a degree in cognitive science and specialized in human-computer interaction from University of California, San Diego. Her curiosity for design and technology led her to study how to create human-centered design and how to apply that in real life.
Say Yes to the Dress was one of Karen’s favorite television shows to binge on during high school. She is a sucker for color schemes, flowers, and cake. Although she has no plans of being engaged or married soon, she’s vicariously living out her wedding dreams though the Weddingbee users. Karen would love to travel to Central Europe for her honeymoon. She dreams of frolicking in the mountains of Austria and singing “The Hills Are Alive” or walking down the Jesuit Stairs in Croatia like Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones and having her husband shout “Shame!”

In 2005, Tyson married his wife on scenic Bellows Beach on the windward side of Oahu.They had a small wedding with family and friends and exchanged vows on the shoreline in almost perfect weather. After a festive reception at the Hawaiian Polynesian Center, they honeymooned in Maui where they spent a week driving all over the island and cliff diving, surfing, hiking, and eating food from almost every local vendor they came across. His favorite moment was at the end of the road to Hana, where they took a wrong turn and ended up on the barren side of the island. As they slowly drove through the rocky landscape, they found themselves surrounded on both sides by many cows and other livestock. They both laughed as it seemed they instantly stumbled into another world!
Tyson lives in Los Angeles with my wife and two children. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, cooking, and composing music.
