Founder Meghan Ely launched OFD Consulting over 8 years ago, combining her experience in the wedding industry with her formal training in and love of public relations.
The leading expert in wedding PR education, she pens regular columns in a number of national industry publications and is a frequent speaker at national conferences. A natural mentor with an innate ability to foster growth, she has taken OFD Consulting from its modest early days and created a top-tier team of publicists who share her passion for public relations and obsession with all things “wedding.”
This power team has secured press exposure for clients in the New York Times, Brides.com, Bridal Guide, the Knot, Out.com, Martha Stewart Weddings and WeddingWire.com. They have completed 500 real wedding submissions earning features locally, nationally, internationally and in niche publications.
The OFD Collective was born of a desire to meet the needs of a niche group of wedding professionals ready to take the press plunge and represent themselves. These experts have the credentials and portfolios to share, but value the ability to fast track their efforts by aligning themselves with a talented publicity team.
We offer the education and resources that our members need to gain the exposure they desire. Customize your OFD Collective experience by choosing from multiple tiers of service and go at your own speed. With our guidance you can take your business to a whole new level. That’s our singular purpose: to marry education with action.
Meghan and I have worked together to produce Web content for Roam, the Travel Channel blog. Meghan is a great resource who generates excellent story ideas and consistently delivers informative content, quotes on trending topics from wedding industry leaders, and compelling images. I know I can depend on her to follow through when we’re collaborating. She’s hard-working and talented, as well as a warm, personable professional. I recommend her highly.
