grace ormonde :: the digital experience

I can recall the first time I was introduced to Grace Ormonde's couture wedding magazine, Wedding Style. It was back in 2005, when Abram's sister, Ginger, was planning her beautiful wedding at the Ritz Carlton Maui. She shared the copy with me, and I've been a huge fan ever since. The publication comes out only twice a year -- yes, don't we wish they could put out more, but understand this select magazine endures a purely intense production; to partake in any advertising, vendors must receive an honorary invitation and then pay some big bucks to settle in the luxe magazine. As a graphic designer, I know what it's like to put out 200+ page publications -- it is FAR from easy and takes the effort of many people. From the haute jewelry, to exemplary floral designers, couture gowns, to some of the most talented event designers showcasing stunning interiors they've designed, I know why Grace Ormonde is so particular. Her magazine is probably one of the most distinguished couture wedding magazines around, and she has a name to uphold. And I couldn't have been happier to stumble upon her magazine -- online -- digital -- interactive -- for those who just happen to make it a minute too late to have been stuck with the "need to restock" notice. Oh, how gracious you are, Ms Grace Ormonde -- we thank you!

If you haven't seen Wedding Style, you're missing out. And though I would consider the digital copy as a quick answer to your desperate need to see who made it in the magazine, you've got to pick up the hard copy in stores -- it's always better to see the real deal!

Get fabulous ideas on engagement session concepts, like the one above -- although you'd be taking it with your hubby-to-be, essentially! Check out the hot couple below, standing on top of a bar counter.
