Nice to Meet You!

Real Weddings - - Editor’s Letter -

THIS IS MY FIRST IS­SUE as editor, though I’m no stranger to the Martha world, hav­ing worked on Martha Ste­wart Liv­ing un­til my very re­cent move down the hall. (I was even on the staff of the pre­miere is­sue of Wed­dings, way back when—so you might say that when it comes to this mag­a­zine, I’m both “some­thing old” and “some­thing new.”)

In fact, I feel like I al­ready know you. You are beau­ti­ful, cre­ative, clever, and madly in love with a very spe­cial per­son. You want your wed­ding to be mean­ing­ful and per­sonal, and re­flect who the two of you re­ally are. You care—deeply!—about the de­tails but also know that what’s most im­por­tant is ev­ery­thing that comes af­ter the I do’s. Am I right? I just had a feel­ing.

Of course, each cou­ple is also com­pletely unique, and in this spe­cial is­sue, you’ll find 11 very dif­fer­ent real wed­dings. I fell for all the brides and grooms af­ter hear­ing their sweet sto­ries and see­ing the mag­i­cal events they or­ches­trated. Whether a Mid­west­ern barn (page 40), a beach in the Mal­dives (page 84), or a Berk­shires art mu­seum (page 38) is more your style, there are dozens of ideas that will in­spire you as you plan your big day—take them and make them your own.

Here’s to a bright fu­ture to­gether. Cheers!
