About

Backstory

D Weddings is the ultimate destination for the informed Dallas bride. With our digital home, we create a connection between brides and local wedding creatives—planners, venues, photographers, floral designers, cake-makers, stationers, entertainers, and more—in a way only a trusted local publication can. The website carries on D Weddings’ 20-year tradition of expert curation and storytelling through the popular real weddings, advice and planning, event listings, and vendor information. DWeddings.com is for the Dallas bride, the Texas bride, the Southern bride—the modern bride.

Meet the Team

Jamie Laubhan-Oliver

Editorial & Creative Director

Jamie Laubhan-Oliver has only been a bridesmaid once. And she only did it under the condition she could wear a caftan. Her rules to live by: Everything is better in black and white, sunglasses should always be large, and never wear a choker on your wedding day (she didn’t live by this rule and now regrets it.)

Jessica Otte

Executive Editor

Jessica Otte has been buying wedding magazines since long before she was actually engaged—or could even drive a car. Once she’d reached an appropriate age, she married her husband, Charlie, and they now spend all their time chasing after their young children. She knows every single word to Father of the Bride by heart.
