Hey guys! Here's a little about us and why we're starting a Patreon account:
Our Situation: We are Rebecca Lozer & Lisa Mark - 2 Canadian female podcasters who also happen to be professional wedding photographers. We are also best friends! We were having dinner one night, chatting about all the crazy shit we have seen over the years, and the idea for The Secret Life of Weddings Podcast was born! We would tell the craziest weird, wild or just plain funny wedding stories all around the world.
We are both small business owners and married with children (not to each other...not that there's anything wrong with that! *Insert Seinfeld gif here*.)
In the first few months of hosting this podcast we have learned a few things:
1) We love telling your wedding stories and getting amazing guests to join us for some laughs!
2) Planning a wedding is stressful AF. People planing (let's be honest - mostly Brides) have been listening and laughing instead of stressing over candle heights. That's pretty great.
3) Our listeners are the coolest people on the planet.
We both support our families and since this podcast IS a lot of fun but still takes up a great deal of time, we feel the need to somewhat contribute to our mortgages / bills / boring grownup stuff. Also when we're working late on the podcast our husband's can't ever go "but you don't make any money on this!" They are supportive, we kid...kinda... ;)
By choosing to support our show with a monthly Patreon donation, it will go one heck of a long way to keeping our husbands quiet so we can record more amazing hilarious wedding stories for you!
What We'll Use the Money For:
1) Keeping our husbands quiet.
2) Real things that we currently pay for out of our pockets like our web hosting, upgrading our mics / software / etc. You know, stuff real podcasters do.
3) Occasional Starbucks because it fuels Lisa.
Thank you for helping us smash our first goal of $100/month! Our next goal is $200/month. Please help us smash that goal and become a patron of The Secret Life of Weddings! By saying YES I'll be a patron of $3 and up, you'll get the following:
- Exclusive Patreon-only episodes with stories we don't tell in our podcast or on our YouTube channel!
- A wall to post questions for us and have us reply ASAP to you directly.
- The happiness in knowing we won't eat cat food for dinner that month.
Don't worry though guys, even if you can't afford to support us right now, we'll always provide free & cringeworthy true wedding stories for you to laugh at both on our podcast and YouTube channel! Thanks for listening us prattle on!
