Congrats to Val Rasmussen, New Editor of UB&G!


In keeping tradition with hiring the very best people as their editor (and staff for that matter), Utah Bride and Groom has just announced the  AWESOME Val Rasmussen of StellaPosy fame as the new editor!!!  Here's a little bit from Val:

Good morning everyone!

In 2004, I started a little flower business called StellaPosy.  I have been extremely fortunate to have my work featured in magazines and at the finest venues in Utah.  Never would I have imagined getting to work alongside the elite of Utah’s wedding industry.  For that, I am so grateful.
One of my favorite quotes is this:  ”Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” by Neale Donald Walsh.  While I have poured ample amounts of blood, sweat and tears (sometimes literally) into StellaPosy for the last 7 years, I have decided to take on a whole new challenge.
I have accepted the position as Editor of Utah Bride & Groom magazine and will begin May 16th.  A press release has been issued by JES publishing to go out today, but I really wanted you guys to hear it from me.
The best part for me is that this position is continuing everything that I have loved doing for StellaPosy, most importantly, obsessing about weddings.  I love hunting for the newest trends in weddings, networking with other wedding experts, styling photo shoots, promoting Utah as a top-tier wedding destination and showcasing the ingenuity of our wedding vendors.
Thank you for all the amazing relationships I have built through StellaPosy.  How fortunate am I to continue those friendships?  How lucky am I to be surrounded by such talent to make my job transition that much easier?
I am honored to continue a legacy created by its former editor (I have some big shoes to fill!) and am beyond thrilled to be a part of Utah Bride & Groom magazine!
Warmest regards,
Val Rasmussen
P.S.  StellaPosy will be executing the weddings already contracted for the summer, but will not be accepting any new weddings.  Call me with ANY questions.  Thanks.

We are so excited for Val and thrilled to see where she takes UB&G in the future!  Congratulations to Val and to Utah Bride and Groom for such a wonderful addition.  Many blessings to you!
