NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 2, 2018

MEDIA CONTACT: Nadine Kohler, publisher@weddingandeventmagazine.com

 

Bird + Duck Media announces that it is the new owner of South Sound Wedding & Event magazine. Nadine Kohler, doing business as Bird + Duck Media LLC, purchased the magazine and wedding events back in May from Paula R. Lowe, managing member of Expressions Media, LLC.

 

Bird + Duck Media will also produce the South Sound Wedding Shows which have been a part of the South Sound Wedding & Event business for over eleven years.

 

The regional magazine was founded by Josh Dunn of Premier Media Group. Expressions Media, LLC, acquired it in June 2006.

 

“In the past 12 years South Sound Wedding & Event magazine -- the flagship of the business – has made room to develop wedding shows and workshops, plus websites – all serving engaged couples in this region,” explains Lowe. “I am proud of what I have created in the past few years. Our resources have helped thousands of couples find wedding services, and I have helped hundreds of wedding professionals grow their businesses.”

 

Nadine Kohler, an experienced event producer and magazine publisher, is excited to take the helm and grow the wedding-related business. Paula’s former assistant, Laura Hagen is now South Sound Wedding & Event’s Account Executive and Event Manager and is thrilled to see the business expand in the region.  “Paula has done a fabulous job creating a platform for the wedding industry in the South Sound and I am excited for the new vision Nadine brings to the business.” 


Nadine is also the current Director of Savvy Family, another South Sound based media and events company produced by Kx2 Enterprises, LLC.  She has been the Executive Producer for events at the regions largest event centers including the Washington State Convention Center, Century Link Event Center, and the Greater Tacoma Convention Center.  Nadine is also the Editor-in-Chief of Savvy Family Magazine, a publication that focuses on families from “Baby Bump to Bon Voyage”!

 

Bird + Duck Media is currently planning the 2019 South Sound Wedding & Event magazine issues, a rejuvinated digital campaign that highlights wedding and event vendors in the south sound region, the launching of a revamped southsoundweddingshow.com website, the 12th annual South Sound Wedding Show in Olympia on January 27, 2019, as well as the all new South Sound Wedding Show in Puyallup on February 23, 2019.
