This week we’re joined by Steph Whitaker, owner and creator of Engaged Wedding Library. Steph knew from personal experience how overwhelming wedding planning can be and set out to make it easier for other brides. Steph and Carrie get into how Engaged works, how Steph came up with this model, and how it has evolved over the years. Steph describes how they’ve fared the last year and a half, how she avoids burnout for herself and her team, and what you can expect working with Engaged. Full show notes at
