Through one simple post on her free wedding website, Erica literally created opportunities and connections that would not have been possible before.
Castle Rock, CO (PRWEB) July 14, 2010
When bride Erica Dyer added bestselling Christian author Karen Kingsbury as her Matron of Honor to her Wedding Party page on her mywedding.com wedding website, she didn’t actually think Kingsbury would attend. But, the power of the Internet changed all.
Kingsbury, who has sold over 15 million copies of her award-winning books, checked out the couple’s free wedding website and was charmed by Erica’s enthusiasm. She decided to make her fan’s dream come true and make a stop at her wedding while on her current book tour.
But, Erica wasn’t done yet. She contacted mywedding.com to share the good news and to thank them for their free wedding website feature. She wrote, “I just wanted to thank you for creating such an awesome place for us to celebrate our wedding! Because of a picture and caption I put on our site, my favorite author looked at it, loved it, and now is COMING TO OUR WEDDING!”
The mywedding.com team, also touched by Erica’s genuine excitement, decided to partner with Kingsbury’s publisher Zondervan to sponsor a 3-day honeymoon to New York City where the couple could relax and reconnect after the big day. They also organized a photo shoot to commemorate the trip with New York-based wedding photographer Red Umbrella Photography.
“This story shows the true power of the Internet,” said Director of Digital Media Katie DeWeese. “Through one simple post on her free wedding website, Erica literally created opportunities and connections that would not have been possible before.”
