Eat, Drink, & Be Married

Feature Article, October 2015

Ultimate Bridal Magazine is a staple for brides in Northern Alberta. I was hired to write a feature article, focused on catering and backed by an interview with a local catering establishment.

I started this project by studying the writing style and voice used in past issues, researching catering trends in Alberta, and using online tools for catering menu inspiration. I then outlined all the questions I would personally have as a bride, in relation to catering, and asked friends and family who had recently planned their own weddings for some insights. After arranging an interview with Todd Zahorodniuk from The Den Pub & Carvery, Grande Prairie, we sat down and discussed the ins and outs of catering as part of the wedding planning process. I pulled quotes with the intention of emphasizing the need for trust in your caterer. I completed the 800-word article and submitted it to the designer, for completion of layout and publishing.

The article is featured in the 2016/17 issue of Ultimate Bridal magazine, distributed in Grande Prairie, the Peace Region, and Northern British Colombia.
