Spring has sprung and, with it, Exquisite Weddings magazine’s newest issue that’s blossoming with delicate details, trend-setting inspiration, and striking real weddings—like Lauren and Mathew’s on our April/May cover!
Captured by Leaf Wedding Photography at the vibrant—even in December!—Grand Pacific Palisades, this real wedding is teeming with personal touches, from a “pop-up” ceremony during cocktail hour to a “first karaoke” in place of a first dance and also homages to the couple’s cat Pumpkin.
As the gorgeous bride, donning Jenny Packham, puts it, “Be authentically you. It’s your day—it can simply be fun!”
And that’s spot-on to the tune of our new issue, curated by a totally new editorial and creative team.
We’ve packed more real couples’ stories into one issue than ever before, highlighting diverse celebrations and destinations, with big days from the bayside to the desert and even across the border.
To that, we cheers—or, heck, salud—to every newlywed in our new issue!
