About the Weddings issue

A look inside our annual Weddings Issue

Wilma 0221 Email

As with many things in the past year, publishing a wedding issue in the middle of everything going on is … different. But, like many of the couples and vendors in this month’s WILMA, it takes a shift in perspective.

Wedding planners, photographers, florists, and jewelers have spent the past almost year adjusting to a year of disruptions. Couples looking forward to starting their lives together in wedded union, faced challenges and tough decisions – postpone, move ahead, improvise? 

Some headed to the courthouse; others figured out ways to celebrate their big days. The year magnified the truly important details and relationships, something we tried to highlight this month as love looms large. Click here to see how area photographers captured a wild wedding year.

For many working in the wedding industry, normal times can’t return fast enough. One date, one location, one floorplan per client would be a dream, says Salt Harbor Designs owner Jennifer Rose in her profile story on New Nuptials. “It’s going to feel like a walk in the park compared to the events of the past year,” she says.

For all those newlyweds out there – as well as the rest of us in 2021 – “may the wind be always at your back.”
