“Meghan Ely is a PR Mastermind!” This is what I hear from both OFD Consulting clients and wedding industry publishers. We’ve asked her to speak on getting beyond the real wedding feature. How do you get press for your business on a wider scale? How do you put the bones into a meaty story? How do you make the pitch? And – how do you find time to fit this all into your busy schedule?
