As we are faced with the realities of the most challenging times, one can only be hopeful and brave to move ahead, and do what has to be done. Tedious as it may always be, WE devoted the same passion in the production of this issue.
Every step made more difficult to handle as we were constrained by government issued safety protocols. Even then, WE never faltered on our commitment to make weddings graciously happen and be memorable at all conditions.
We battled it out. We danced with the time and we innovated.
Within our pages you will find messages of hope from our loyal suppliers and partners who are always one with us in our vision in making unforgettable memories.
Dream Theme destinations feature unique shoots taken in the midst of the pandemonium setting (pages 10-51), all made possible by our dedicated creative team. Collaborating with each one of them made the job more fulfilling and honorable.
Out-of-the-box fashion editorials (pages 68-137) are what WE will always be known for. We give pages and pages of inspiring gowns from young and up-coming fashion designers who are slowly making waves in our industry.
WE adore beautiful weddings (pages 138-175). I can’t help but embrace every story we read of every couple’s loving ways through this crisis. All with a happy ending even at its intimate setting.
Over 40 issues in 17 years. Every issue, amazingly inspiring. A very good reason to go on and on.
