Here at Destination I Do, we’re looking forward to spring with the launch of our new Spring 2019 issue, which hits newsstands today! With most of America hunkered down against record-breaking freezing temperatures, let’s look ahead together to warmer weather and sunnier days! While our blog and website are constantly tended with TLC, our magazine is the bread and butter of what Destination I Do is all about. Whether you’re in the process of planning your destination wedding, honeymoon or simply a romantic getaway for two, this issue has something for you. In this issue, you’ll find the trusty departments some of you may have come to count on, as well as some new and exciting features that strive to aide and inspire.
For those of you who judge a magazine by the cover, we’re confident you’ll fall in love with our Spring 2019 cover. This real-life bride eloped to beautiful Los Cabos, Mexico. Aboard the 75-foot sailboat Tu Enamorado, our bride was stunning in a two-piece gown by Rminé. Her soft and natural hair and makeup were done by Zoë Elizabeth and the photo shoot creative direction and production was courtesy of Crosby + Jon Design and Grand Velas Project Director, Ary Iturralde. Jeremy Chou shot this on location at the Grand Velas Los Cabos with the help of Carlos Hernandez. The full photo shoot and a behind-the-scenes video by Robert Michael can be found here.
