About

Backstory

D Weddings is the ultimate destination for the informed Dallas bride. Our website features the best of our award-winning magazine, including the popular Real Weddings, which feature aspirational yet relatable weddings. With our digital home, we create a connection between the 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, through thoughtful design, informative vendor listings, and immersive interactives. The website carries on D Weddings’ 15-year tradition of expert curation and storytelling, while covering planning advice, bridal designer profiles, personal essays, occasion-based shopping guides, and more. DWeddings.com is for the Dallas bride, the Texas bride, the Southern bride—the modern bride.

Meet the Team

Maura Jones

Maura is a recovering attorney and also D Weddings' Publisher. She adores her family of boys, husband and son. The beach is her happy place watching the sun rise and set.

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.)

Ryan Conner

Executive Editor

D Weddings executive editor and resident reality television expert, Ryan Conner was married before hashtags were a thing. But, if they were, it would have been #ryandigsdoug. She loves listening to trap music, collecting gray sweaters, and cuddling with her two daughters. No wedding is complete without champagne and buttercream icing.

Whitney Carroll

Account Executive

Whitney loves all things beautiful! She has quite the love for art and interior design. Her personal artistic inspiration has always been emphasized by her love of everything blue and white along with her admiration of Hunt Slonem. Birds and bunnies and butterflies, oh my!
