WSS interviews Season Hurd, A Colorado Courtship Blog

We’re excited to introduce you to SEASON HURD, publisher of A Colorado Courtship blog.

Wedding Sites and Services will be featuring many of her blogs on our site in the coming months... stay tuned for greatness!

• Tell us a little about your business:

A Colorado Courtship blog is an inspirational resource for Colorado weddings. Providing insight and advice, real wedding content, DIY projects, and more means that ACC offers a wide variety of ways to help you make your Colorado wedding the best that it can be.

• What inspired you want to do what you do?

When I was a bride myself, I spent a ton of time on wedding blogs looking for inspiration. Wanting to share my experience, I started ACC as a way of documenting my wedding and auditioning for a group wedding blog. While I never did make it onto that other blog, I never stopped blogging. I was discouraged at what I saw as a lack of good local content. So I sought to fill that gap by offering more than just engagements and weddings. DIY projects, mood boards, photo locations, etc. help me stand out as a resource for Colorado couples.

• How did you get your start in the special event industry?

As with many people in this industry, I never pictured myself here until my own wedding. I was a food microbiologist! But the love of weddings is pervasive, I suppose, and now I’m looking for every way that I can to stick around.

• How long have you been in business?

ACC was founded in May of 2011. I was married in August of 2011 and then the blog became about other people’s Colorado weddings.

• What’s your favorite part of the job?

While working in a lab, I discovered that I was starving for a creative outlet. I’m happy that I get to work every day with joyful, imaginative people. The wedding industry is positive and nearly everyone involved makes something new with each couple’s day. It’s a hotbed of creativity!

• How would you describe your style?

Frank. I am not a normal wedding blogger. I am silly, personal, and at times blunt. But that’s what makes it readable…right? 

• What sets you apart from other vendors in your category?

I work my tail off. Many wedding blogs do not accompany their images with stories, for example. I spend a crazy amount of time selecting pictures to tell the story, remain consistent in look, and honor the photography. I spent even more time writing my articles. It’s important to me that my blog is not just eye candy. I’m committed to my blog having a voice.

• If you met with a bride and groom and literally had ONE minute to tell them why they should check out your blog, what would you say?

I represent the real couples of Colorado. Not just the expensive weddings or the pretty pink ones. This state is wildly diverse and so are our weddings. Everyone finds inspiration here.
