Westchester/Hudson Valley Weddings' 2014 issue has arrived! I am the executive editor of this publication and work on every page of it. This year's issue features:
-Spotlight-worthy gowns shot on location at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester (as seen in the cover image above).
-Four event designers and two cake bakers who demonstrate how to incorporate patterns into reception decor without overdoing it (written by me—see PDF below).
-Repurposed local venues that had former lives, as factories, warehouses, and mills.
-Hair, makeup, and jewelry that make for the perfect finishing touches.
-Six real weddings: a DIY summer wedding, a "lovebird"-themed summer wedding, a farm-inspired fall wedding, an edgy tattoo- and graffiti-inspired wedding, an eclectic winery wedding, and a traditional winter wedding.
-Photographers' advice on how to make the most of the engagement session—plus their favorite shots (written by me—see PDF below).
-Florists' recommendations for out-of-the-box bouquet ideas.
-A round-up of fun bits of wedding-day inspiration, from wooden bow ties to embroidery hoops.
