The Webster Hill Photography Agency has launched a web radio and podcast network, weddingoverload.com, aimed at brides with a sense of humor.

The Webster Hill Photography Agency has launched a new website, weddingoverload.com, aimed at keeping wedding planning... funny? Sporting the tagline “Not your mother’s podcast”, the site was invented by the San Francisco company as a virtual radio station designed to poke fun at the wedding industry. The site hosts weekly podcasts and links to web radio stations that feature the Wedding Overload talk show. Recent episodes included “The myth of Bridezilla and other tall tales” and a segment debunking wedding stereotypes, entitled “Old men in tuxedoes.”

Natalie Sousa, founder of Webster Hill, serves as one of the on-air personalities at Wedding Overload. “We’re not making fun of brides or weddings. Its actually the opposite. We’re just challenging some of the popular wisdom out there. The industry is crowded with vendors and full of conflicting information. We want to offer an alternative to the high stress vibe, and get some laughs in.”

Sousa is shy to call herself a comedienne. “We’re not trained comedians. Do comedians get trained?” Sousa smiles, “There’s definitely a lot of humor in there, but our information is also useful.”

Sousa’s partner and co-host, Nelson Rodriguez, explains why they were willing to challenge their own industry. “Webster Hill is a great business to run, and it’s still our main focus, but it’s exciting to work on a project that is not really designed to make money. This is just something we thought would be fun. Of course, the exposure is nice, but we think we’re doing something people will genuinely enjoy.”

Sousa and crew interview other vendors in the wedding industry, from DJs to florists, looking for behind-the-scenes info. Typical interviews include questions like “What’s the oldest wedding cake you’ve ever eaten?” and “What’s the one dress trend you wish would go away?”

Sousa insists that weddingoverload.com is NOT the Howard Stern of weddings. “We’re not edgy, or rude. We’re just having fun. The kinds of brides we have always worked with have a sense of humor and great attitudes. Brides are real people, with real personalities. Wedding Overload reflects that.”
