We finally got our hands on a print edition of the magazine we're in and it feels so good to flip through those pages! If you get a chance to pick one up, it is full of gorgeous local weddings that list the vendors at the end of each couple's story, which can be very helpful. Here is the link to the online version.
Gavin and I love where we come from, so when it was (heavily) suggested to us that we submit our wedding to be featured somewhere I really wanted it to be the local edition of Wedding Trends. Wedding magazines and sites are fairly adamant on exclusivity of their content, so you have to choose one and go with it and it's up to your photographer to submit their work.
Being true to yourself and letting the details reflect you and your beloved is a sure way to make your wedding unique and special. What will come through in the design is a day that is both cohesive and one of a kind. This will leave a big impression on your guests and make you and your new spouse feel right at home; bonus is that it is also attractive to those that publish weddings.
The design of our wedding was a mix of the things we hold dear, then expressed through the celebratory aesthetic of natural beauty found in french art. Art is far better at communicating emotions than words are; the periods of Rococo and Impressionism are my kindred spirits, especially Monet.
Magazines can only feature a handful of photos, so here are some of the pictures that I wish had made it in, as well as a complete list of vendors.
