It's finally here! My first full issue as editor of Metro Detroit Bride! I am so proud of how this issue turned out - from the cover to Something Blue, everything turned out absolutely gorgeous. I have always loved working on wedding and bridal editorials, and thanks to the amazing team on this book - art director Jessica Decker, associate art director Megan DeKok, and all our talented contributors - Metro Detroit Bride is a labor of love particularly close to my heart. Here are some of the highlights from the issue:
A Fine Vintage
I had such an amazing time on this shoot. It was so much time to go back in time to find bridal style inspiration across the decades. The styling, props, photography, and model all combined perfectly to capture the essence of each era, from the Roaring '20s to the Swingin' '60s. My absolute favorite look from this shoot is the 1990s look - so clean, so chic, so minimal, and that eye makeup!

When I got the lookbook for the Tiffany leather collection and saw this picnic basket, I swooned. We had to feature it! Doesn't this look like a fabulous way to spend a romantic summer afternoon?
