At Junebug Weddings, we're here to demystify the wedding planning process with inspiration, information, and resources. We publish content to empower couples to create a celebration worthy of their unique love—inclusive of all genders, cultures, religions, and styles. Through this work, we also connect couples to talented vendors who can turn their visions into reality.

Meet The Team

Lexi Heimdal

Director of Marketing & Communications

As Marketing Manager for Junebug Weddings and Photobug Community, Lexi has helped grow Junebug’s social following by more than 500% and increased traffic to the Junebug blog by nearly 150% since 2016. Through trial and error, tons of research, and innovation, she’s worked with her team to craft Junebug’s marketing strategies, and then share all of their best practices with wedding photographers via Photobug Community. She lives in Austin, Texas and loves spending time outside with her pup Trixie, listening to live music, and is always planning her next trip abroad. You can count on Lexi to show up to a team meeting with baked goods and a smile.

Marissa Forsyth

Business Dev Manager & Editorial Asst

[email protected]

2020 commemorates ten years of Marissa calling Austin home, and the last decade has been filled with weekends at swimming holes, lots of Tex-Mex, and working alongside friends at Junebug since 2014. She is a UT alumna with a major in Theatre and Dance and minor in Business, who found her niche within Junebug’s member relations department. She loves getting to know the people behind the businesses of this incredibly diverse, talented wedding industry and browsing the world’s most unique elopements and creative celebrations. When not behind the computer, she’s either eating on a patio, practicing yoga, or playing with her bff and dog Beaver.

Jessica Pesquera

Operations & Partnerships Manager

[email protected]

Born and raised in Texas, Jessica moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas and fell in love with the city’s creativity and soul. As Member Operations Manager and an introverted extrovert, she loves building relationships with wedding vendors around the world while simultaneously keeping things running smoothly behind the scenes. In her free time, Jessica enjoys taking walks around Lake Austin with her husband, Dillan, and French bulldog, Leon, testing out new restaurants, and renovating her 1920’s craftsman home.

Kamilah Kirksey

Marketing Project Coordinator

After making the transition from running her own personal blog, Kamilah found a new home for her writing skills with the Junebug Marketing team! She is grateful to have the opportunity to use her creativity and quirkiness to collaborate with her Junebug coworkers and helping form a warm, and inviting online community in the wedding industry! Outside of Junebug, Kamilah enjoys spontaneous road trips, far too much matcha tea, gardening, and of course long cuddle sessions with her toy poodle!

Riley Schnepf

Content & Editorial Manager

[email protected]

As the Content and Editorial Manager, Riley works to bring informational and inspirational content to Junebug readers. She works with the editorial team to curate content that makes wedding planning as easy as possible. When she’s not typing up a storm she’s cuddling up with her two corgis—Willow and Winston—sipping on a margarita, hiking one of Arizona’s mountains, or booking her next travel adventure.
