Christopher Confero
Publisher & Editor-in-Chief

An event planner by trade and a storyteller at heart, Christopher Confero has worked in the wedding industry for more than 15 years. As a theatre kid and entertainer growing up, he found his passion for creating experiences for others that would lend itself to his future. Immediately following graduation from Auburn University, he leveraged his degree in Public Relations to begin building his event design company, Confero. His first step to get his foot in the door was advertising and working with Alabama Weddings to create inspirational photo shoots and lend his graphic design skills to the publication. 

Throughout the years, he continued to work with the magazine and other publications across the country, cultivating his perspective on what a wedding magazine could be and offer its community. In 2020, paths aligned for Christopher to purchase the magazine, and become Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, leading to full rebrand of the publication in time for its 20th Anniversary Edition in January 2021.

David’s career in the wedding and event industry began after graduating high school in 2008, with a summer job on staff at Classic on Noble in Anniston, Alabama. In 2009, he met Christopher Confero and began learning the ropes of event production while also pursuing his bachelor’s degree in public relations at The University of Alabama. He started his first tenure with Alabama Weddings in 2011; and upon graduation in 2012, he served as art director and editor through the launch of the 15th Anniversary Edition in 2016.

His favorite color palettes can be found in a roll of Smarties or clusters of neon signage. He is a writer at heart, a brand builder by day, and a house music aficionado by night.

Lyndsey Golden

Lyndsey’s passion for event logistics and the people of her community is what lead her to the wedding and event industry. After graduating high school in 2013, Lyndsey attended The University of Alabama where she double majored in Interior Design and Hospitality Management. While in college, Lyndsey explored the industry via campus jobs, extracurricular positions, and freelance photography. Since then, she has dabbled in wedding photography, planning, floral design, and floral preservation – all of which taught her how to make every wedding day even more special.

After completing her Master’s in 2020, Lyndsey began assisting the Alabama Weddings team with several photo shoots. In January 2022, she joined the staff officially and is excited to serve the people of the hospitality industry and her community from a publication standpoint.

In addition to all things events, Lyndsey spends her free time capturing people’s stories through photography, traveling, preserving flowers, and collecting salt and pepper shakers.
