Managing Editor & Associate Publisher: Megan Finley
Born and raised an awkward nerd in Los Angeles, Megan Finley is still an awkward nerd, but thanks to The Empire, she gets paid to be one. When she's not glued to her laptop managing content for Offbeat Bride, Offbeat Home & Life, and her personal blog, she dorking out over these things: Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Adventure Time, Buffy, dogs, sharks, or dinosaur fossils.
Megan doesn't own her own home, but she rents an apartment behind a famous porn shop in West Hollywood with her shark attack surviving husband and their various rescued beasts. She also takes advantage of her parents' home in Maui as much as possible.
Editor: Stephanie Kaloi
Stephanie is a southern-born, Portland, Oregon transplanted wedding photographer who travels around shooting just about everything with her business, Stephanie Kaloi Photography.
She spends the rest of her non-wedding time with her family (husband, son, two dogs!), traveling and exploring, geeking out on new fonts, and eating copious amounts of cheese. She's also crazy obsessed with Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Doctor Who, and tries to not speak about them TOO frequently.
Copyeditor: Caroline Alexandra Diezyn
Caroline just finished her American Studies MA and moved from Ontario, Canada, to Whitehorse, way up north in the Yukon. She likes to dress in all black, has a severe case of wanderlust, and loves art and fashion.
