We are thrilled to announce the Exquisite Weddings cover debut for Fall 2017! This cover represents our 10-year anniversary (cue the champagne pop sound effect now!). The photo was taken at one of the most exquisite San Diego hotels, Fairmont Grand Del Mar, who is also celebrating their big 10th anniversary. It’s as if we planned it!
Here are the #ExquisiteDetails behind the cover image…
At the Exquisite Weddings magazine offices we take our magazine covers very seriously. It’s our brand’s pretty face. We want to give you, our brides and fans, the best images to inspire wedding day creativity. When our creative team laid eyes on the photo below, we all instantly fell in love. It was a strong cover image contender from the very beginning and, as you can see, it WON!
Photographer Rachael Marie captured the image during our Fall 2017 bridal photoshoot at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar this past July. The team behind this photo was a vetted group of the best of the best San Diego wedding vendors, hand-picked by our creative director. Oddly enough, this image was one of the very last shots of the day with our (model) couple under the Fairmont Grand Del Mar outdoor terrace on their Aria Lawn. (Ladies, you are in luck! You can say “I Do” in this exact spot on their breathtakingly beautiful grounds. Swoon!)
Rachael Marie caught a sweet moment under the stunning architecture, and all of us at the office agreed that we wanted to be THAT couple in THAT moment in THAT spot. Don’t you agree? For details on the cover bride and groom’s fashion and how to get their look, see our talented San Diego wedding vendor list below.
