from TriadWeddings planner community beginning on page 30.
Every bride wants her wedding to make a statement, specifically
one that prompts exclamations of “wow” and “how
gorgeous”! Now becoming one of the hottest design considerations,
lighting – in particular, uplighting -- can create drama
and individuality in every setting. When lighting is used correctly,
it enhances the surroundings, adding emphasis where needed and
becomes part of the artistic composite. For budgets large and small,
check out the latest lighting trends beginning on page 46.
Once you’ve gotten your direction on the design and theme
of your wedding, read some expert advice about things that perhaps
you wouldn’t have normally considered to help maximize your
wedding day experience! Who better to turn to for behind the scenes
tips than a Reverend and a professional wedding photographer, both
of whom have seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes
to wedding details? Reverend Dr. Susan Kennedy shares her wisdom
on page 26 and Hooman Bahrani, owner of Vesic Photography, shares
his beginning on page 80.
Enjoy this issue of TriadWeddings and get ready to be inspired
as you begin planning your own dream wedding. Real Triad area weddings
will inspire you and our expert tips on catering, invitations,
flowers, cakes and more are sure to make your planning process

This joyous occasion is a time to be happy and celebrate, so don’t
let the planning process interfere with the true meaning of what
brought you here to begin with…your love for one another.
Best wishes for an extraordinary Triad wedding and most importantly,
a lifetime of happiness!
