 EDITOR'S LETTER 

Welcome to SIGNATURE BRIDE’s inaugural digital issue! Kudos to all of you who are engaged and planning your weddings! I recently got engaged, and I get it … there is so much to do. I feel overwhelmed as I am sure you do, too!

 

We are excited to have you here and to be able to publish magazines in conjunction with our website, SIGNATUREBRIDE.NET. We hope our digital publications will provide helpful information as you and your significant other navigate this path called wedding planning! I too am navigating this path alongside my fiancée, Regina.

Working for a bridal publication is giving me so many ideas! I have met amazing talent and seen some incredible venues, and in putting THE PLANNING ISSUE together, I’ve gotten a lot of ideas. Where do I start?!

Inside THE PLANNING ISSUE, we showcase our magical photoshoot, Looking Through the Eye of Love, to give you some amazing garden and color vibes for spring and summer. We also got an exclusive look at the wedding of Bravo TV’s Paris & Joseph—you’ll know them from Love Match Atlanta.

 

If you are thinking about a destination wedding, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our story on the beautiful Napa Valley and our article on Unique Wedding Venues Around the World. You’ll also learn how to find the perfect Bordeaux and get a full-on Champagne guide—it’s not just for toasting! Plus, there is so much more!

Keep scrolling down and you will see all we’ve got for you. You may notice we have two cover designs. Why two, you may ask? Well, we actually had four covers to choose from—four! We had such a hard time deciding, we thought we would treat you to the different looks from our photoshoot.​ Enjoy the issue and drop me a line at shawn@signaturebride.net. Be sure to let me know what you want to see on our website and in our magazine!

INSPIRATION

LOOKING THROUGH
THE EYE OF LOVE

The SIGNATURE BRIDE team partnered with creative director Melisa Brown of Lux Lifestyle Events to create a romantic photoshoot that guides us down the proverbial rabbit hole into a wonderland where one’s imagination is greatly amplified by lush greenery, fantastical topiaries, and rich colors of emerald green, fuchsia, pinks, deep purple and violet. The effect is multiplied in botanical patterns underfoot and a magical reflective aisle, outlined and punctuated with regal gold accents.

BRAVO'S PARIS &

PLANNING

For decades, the Napa Valley has been one of the most sought-after destination wedding regions in the world. Though this legendary valley is best known for its exquisite wines, it is also home to incomparable scenery, magnificent venues, luxurious spas and accommodations, vigorous outdoor sports and a vast array of gourmet dining adventures. The region offers everything for a perfect Napa Valley wedding.
