The Faces Behind Gala Pal: Meghan

By now, you’ve seen a lot of posts from guest contributors (who we absolutely adore), but you might be wondering who writes all of our other posts. Let me introduce myself…

My name is Meghan and I’m the community manager for Gala Pal.


I’m the one who hangs out on all of our social media outlets and finds super awesome content to help you plan the best wedding (or event) that you possibly can.

I found Gala Pal by chance. I had just quit teaching to start a writing career, a drastic shift for me. Since Gala Pal was a local company (we’re in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area), they were instantly appealing to me. Even more? I genuinely LOVE weddings, so it was a no-brainer. I started working for Christine and Jonathan last summer and haven’t looked back. I mean, I am able to research weddings, go to bridal shops, steal cake samples at wedding shows and I get to call it work. Who wouldn’t want that kind of work life?

What am I into when I’m not trolling Pinterest? You can find me hiking around Raleigh’s park trails, finding places to subversively garden around my apartment complex, or consuming books in mass quantities. I’m also a semi-pro photographer and end up traveling around the country on a frequent basis photographing weddings and filming locations with my boyfriend, Mike. Our adventures help supplement Gala Pal’s stock photo cache, so Jonathan and Christine allow it. 😉

You can find out more about me on my website, Adventures in Verdance. To see more of our photos from our travels, you can head over to Mike’s website, Michael Gillman Photography. If you want to see what I’ve been into recently on our social media outlets, you can check our Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter feeds.

Feel free to introduce yourself in the comments — I can’t wait to see what you’re planning!

– <3 Meghan,
Your Nerdy, Neighborhood Community Manager
