In the Spring of 2008, Maggie Lord founded the super popular wedding resource website, RusticWeddingChic.com after planning her own wedding and later created the site,  RusticBabyChic.com to grow along with her readers. With millions of readers monthly and 5 published books under her belt, Maggie has become a sought-after wedding and lifestyle expert sharing her tips and insights regularly on TV as well as being featured in a variety of publications, including The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Fast Company, Forbes, Success Magazine and more. Maggie has turned a passion about weddings into a six-figure business. 

          Maggie started to gain attention outside of the blog world when I shared her story of how she was able to simultaneously create a business and raise kids. Through a series of well-received articles for Entrepreneur Magazine, Maggie found an entirely new audience seeking entrepreneurial advice and guidance. In an effort to encourage other like-minded entrepreneurs, Maggie has written about her experience of finding a passion, creating a business and embracing motherhood as part of the business plan.

         Maggie is now the author of 5 books including the popular wedding books: The Rustic Wedding Handbook, Barn Weddings & Rustic Wedding Chic along with two adult coloring book, Color Me Married and Welcome To Baby Land. Along with her husband, writer, Jonathan Lord, and their two sons, Maggie gets to enjoy a home and life in Connecticut a short 50 minutes from Manhattan.  Maggie is a proud graduate of University of Connecticut with a major in History and a minor in women’s studies and hold a master’s degree from Southern New Hampshire University.
