Or draw the reader in by telling a story from your own wedding day and how that experience influences how you work today. Or share a bit about your personality and how that impacts how you work.
Regardless of how you begin, write how you talk in everyday life. And let them know that if they keep reading, they'll learn more about your background, what you value most, and (most importantly) how all that will impact their experience.
How did you get into this crazy world of weddings? What's interesting about how or why you started your business?
