Congratulations, you’re engaged! We’re so glad you have this issue of Real Weddings in your hands! It’s been our mission for the past 13 years to inspire you to create the wedding of your dreams…any way you define it—and to connect you with the local wedding pros to help you get it done. And this issue is no exception! So let’s jump in and start planning your big day!
You’ll flip over our wedding inspiration photo shoots starting on page 51: “Love on the Links,” “Beautiful Valley.” “Amor de mi Vida,” and “Country Charm.” Then, check out our cover model contest finalist features: “Mountain Retreat” and “Home on the Range.” We had a great time playing dress up—with gorgeous hair, makeup, accessories, bouquets and dresses—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 shoot’s blog series—we’ll overwhelm you with more gorgeousness!
From “Plus One” and our “Gift Guide” columns to the 33 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.
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!
As always, dear readers, happy planning!
