Wed­ding guide adds two, launches web­site

Maryland Independent - - Business -

South­ern Mary­land Wed­dings of Wal­dorf has spent al­most 15 years mak­ing wed­ding plan­ning eas­ier. A new web­site and two new part­ners are go­ing to im­prove it fur­ther, ac­cord­ing to Kim­berly Bean, founder and CEO of the firm.

“I am ec­static to wel­come my son, Richard Bean, and his fi­ancée, Desh Kostanyan, to the lead­er­ship here at South­ern Mary­land Wed­dings,” Bean said in a news re­lease. “These two are young and cre­ative, and they are help­ing to breathe new life into our pub­li­ca­tion.”

Richard Bean will serve as vice pres­i­dent and cre­ative di­rec­tor. He earned a bach­e­lor of fine arts de­gree in sound de­sign from the Sa­van­nah Col­lege of Art and De­sign.

“My fi­ancée and I have been en­gaged since last sum­mer, and I think that helps us un­der- stand what en­gaged cou­ples are look­ing for,” Richard said.

Kostanyan will be South­ern Mary­land Wed­ding’s sales and mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor. She holds a de­gree in mar­ket­ing from Cal­i­for­nia State Univer­sity, Los An­ge­les, and a cos­me­tol­ogy li­cense for hair and makeup. “There is a lot to be ex­cited about, and this is truly the per­fect time for us to join South­ern Mary­land Wed­dings,” she said in the re­lease. “I will get to share my own en­gage­ment with other brides — and see their spe­cial and mag­i­cal mo­ments as we grow to­gether.”

The plan­ning com­pany’s web­site, www.SoMdWed­, will be re­designed to make it eas­ier for brides to use. The new site will be mo­bile-friendly so that en­gaged cou­ples can more eas­ily in­ter­act on their smart­phones and tablets. Read­ers will also see up­dated email news­let­ters and brand­ing on South­ern Mary­land Wed­dings’ social me­dia.

Fu­ture plans in­clude a South­ern Mary­land Wed­dings mo­bile app and a re­designed print edi­tion that cou­ples will be able to pick up at bri­dal shows and se­lect wed­ding ven­dors in South­ern Mary­land.

The Beans and Kostanyan are also plan­ning a bri­dal show, called A Bri­dal Af­fair, and a South­ern Mary­land Dream Wed­ding Give­away. The bri­dal show is Sun­day, Feb. 12, at Mid­dle­ton Hall in Wal­dorf. For more in­for­ma­tion, go to www. SoMdWed­
