About the Editor: Courtney Hollands
As Boston magazine’s senior lifestyle editor and the editor of Boston Weddings, Courtney keeps tabs on the local retail scene, new trends, and runway looks — and has tips for living the fashionable life or planning a spectacular Big Day. Previously, she worked at Boston.com and the Boston Globe, where she headed the EPPY-award winning Things to Do section online and contributed regularly to the lifestyle sections of the paper and to the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine. Before that, she was a WickedLocal.com editor and a Patriot Ledger reporter. She also interned at Rolling Stone (ask her about touring with Good Charlotte in Australia). Courtney prides herself on random knowledge of Boston’s neighborhoods and nightlife, and when she isn’t writing or editing, she’s probably shopping, running, or drinking craft beer.
