This Side of the Aisle
Posted: Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013
So, are you married? I get this question a lot. A LOT. And its perfectly legitimateIm at the helm of the regions premier bridal publication. So heres the answer: nope! Not yet.
But what may seem to put me at a disadvantage to someone whos walked that aisle herself, also makes me the perfect person to fill these pages with inspiration, real weddings, and ideas for making your visionfor the planning, the big day, and beyonda reality. As I soak in all the talent in Charlottes bridal community and meet the wonderful people who showcase their work in these pages, I can see everything with the fresh eyes of someone on this side of that rite of passage.
Everything this magazine has to offer you is something I, too, would love. Someday, will I want my wedding to be on-trend but also timeless? Of course! Am I already torn between a more classic, regal look and my soft spot for vintage charm? Oh yeah. Luckily, I have time to figure that outbut for those of you in the more immediate stages of decision-making, weve tried to present the best of many different styles to inspire you.
One such example is our floral feature this issue, in which local floral designers have created bridal bouquets to match every personality, shot by the incredibly talented Cassandra Bradley with BlueSky Studios.
This feature is just one of the ways you may notice a fresh look throughout this issue. In addition to flowers, weve ramped up the glamour with our fashion spread. While weve added fun new sections and stories, were still committed to being your first-stop source for planning, so be sure to stop in our planning section.
Whether youve just said yes or are finalizing those last details, theres something here for everyonethank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
