Spring 2018


Spring is in the air (although this year we are questioning it more than last)!  For many of you, spring is the season of planning! We hope that you get to look forward to your big day with excitement and joy and don’t become overwhelmed with the stress of planning.  Remember that this is one day of your life – a very important and amazing day, but one that catapults you into an all new season.  Take the time to embrace this fantastic upcoming season, prepare yourselves as a couple, and show gratitude for those who love you and stand by your side each and every day.

Whether you are newly engaged or have been planning for over a year, we have plenty of amazing local vendors who can help. We have inspiration, wedding stories, and a dress preview in this issue alone. We also have a beautiful spring inspired shoot that took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Downtown South Bend featuring a light and airy feel using the colors blush, lavender, and gray. Be sure to check out this Fierce Love stylized shoot on page 41.

We had such a wonderful time with many of you at the Lucky Bride at Four Winds Casino in January. We hope you were able to meet many of our great vendors, walk through the beautiful inspiration galleries, possibly find a gown at the gown sale, and enjoy some tasty treats along the way. Thank you brides, you made the day unforgettable!

Happy Planning!
