Stacie Francombe is the founder and CEO of Get Married, the only multi-channeled wedding resource with platforms online (www.GetMarried.com) and on television (Lifetime Television) every weekday that connects local and national wedding professionals and industry experts with brides through entertainment, news and retail.
With more than a decade in broadcast television news and a lifetime passion for all things bridal, Stacie wanted to create something special that would educate and inform brides. Realizing the synergy between television and online information, Stacie piloted the launch of Get Married Atlanta in January 2006, produced in-house by a company she founded, Reel Creative, a full-service production company. It was the success of this show and online concept that led to the creation of Get Married on a national scale, bringing the concepts to television audience nationwide as well as a worldwide resource online.
Driven by unique video and content, www.GetMarried.com and Get Marriedâ€™s show on Lifetime Television provide brides and wedding professionals with inspiring ideas, quality connections and fantastic finds to create a personalized and memorable wedding.
Stacie started her career while in college at Ohio State University, working as an intern and then as a production assistant in the sports department of the NBC affiliate in Columbus, Ohio. After graduation, she moved to Atlanta in 1997 and joined the then start-up CNN Sports Illustrated cable network as an editor and associate producer.
Realizing her flair for television and her quick-witted thinking, Stacie quickly became a key producer for CNN Internationalâ€™s global sports coverage. In 1998, she joined TBS as a writer-producer and continued to develop her talents as a producer and writer.
In 1999, Stacie founded Reel Creative, working tirelessly to build her companyâ€™s reputation as a boutique production house by offering services to a wide range of broadcast and corporate clients. During this time, Stacie married her former boss from CNN, Dave, and, in time, convinced him to join her company as its creative director.
Stacie currently lives in Atlanta with her husband and three sons.
