Real Weddings – SF23

My husband, Terry, and I recently celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. And it literally flew by in the blink of an eye. As you start to plan your life with your beloved, I look back to our years together and wonder, “What makes it work for us?” And I have to say, a whole lot of laughter. Every. Single. Day.

Throughout your marriage, there will be ups and downs along the way. The way you handle those hills and dips will truly determine your marriage’s success. Try to find the laughter in everything as much as you can.

The same can be said about wedding planning! It’s an exceptionally exciting time in your lives together, but with it brings a fair amount of stress. Enjoy the process and laugh along the way!

Of course, to help with your planning process. we present this: our 30th issue! We love helping you find the best vendors through our magazine, website and social media—all in the hopes of inspiring you to create your big day the way you’ve always dreamed it!

In this issue, we’ve got massive photo shoot inspiration, with four stunning styled shoots, each with unique themes. On each of these shoots, we had a great time playing dress up and working with talented design teams to create inspiring décor sets. Oh, and if you want to see more photos from any of our shoots, be sure to tune in to our website for each photo shoots’ blog series—we’ll overwhelm you with more gorgeousness!

From “Things We Love,” “Signature Cocktails,” and our “Gift Guide” columns, to the 29 featured real weddings and featured wedding pros in our “Style Files: The White List Directory,” and every page in between, this issue is bursting at the seams! Get inspired. Find your vendors. Plan the day of your dreams…all with Real Weddings: the magazine, website, blog and social media.

When you find your wedding dream team through Real Weddings—the magazine, blog, website, mobile app, mobile directory and our social media sites— be sure to tell your wedding pros that you found them through Real Weddings and that you’re a Real Weddings’ reader because without their support, we simply couldn’t do what we do to inspire you!

(Oh, and P.S. Tell them that you’re a Real Weddings’ reader because a lot of our partners have special offers exclusively for our readers. You can get a sneak peek of them on our website at:

As always, dear readers, happy planning!
