2010 Issue And New Web Site
I cannot believe another year is upon us and we are in the throes of another magazine layout already! Finally the photo shoots are complete and I am almost finished with image choices. Layout was done a few weeks ago and now we are onto the design part. It is always my goal to have an issue out before Christmas and even with the new 8 x 10 size and the launch of a brand new web site, we will meet this deadline once again! I wanted to say thank you to our photographers this year who helped with photo shoots.

We have so many talented wedding professionals from the Raleigh Durham Chapel Hill area this year and some new reception venues opening as well! Our new web site http://www.weddings-magazine.com/ will launch in December with so many tools and options for the local bride. First, we will have a blogroll apprearing on our home page. Our web site will have new real time posts from local wedding professionals up to the minute so everytime a bride checks the site, something new will be there to see! We will also have forums and blogging for brides to chat with each other on a local level or with any of our professionals. 2010 is all about social networking so we decided to do just that for our local brides.
I am really excited as well about the new cover of Weddings. It was shot by a fashion photographer out of Ireland and the gown on the model is amazing..dazzling to say the least. The whole image is breathtaking. Our fashion shoot we did this year will mimic the look of the cover. We shot it at the model home in http://www.hasentree.com/ in Wake Forest. This is a 2.5 million dollar home that served as the perfect backdrop for our couture gowns (and models!).
Check back to our blog often as we will have upcoming dates for shows, web site launch, etc. Weddings Magazine will be at the http://www.foreverbridal.net/ October show at the Durham Hilton and at the fairgounds Wedding Show in early January 2010.
