As a special treat and to celebrate the launch of our new Spring 2016 issue, which hit newsstands this week, we’re sharing a behind the scenes look into one of our Fashion Forward photo shoots! A wedding is the dawn of a new life together as a couple. The beginning and end of each day inspired this photo shoot – meant to represent the colors of the sunrise, sunset and the sky’s natural ombré. Hence the name, “Golden Summer.” All You Need is Love Events crafted the creative direction and the talented Caroline Tran Photography skillfully captured the images. To view the full feature, be sure to pick-up your copy of the Spring 2016 issue on newsstands now! To make it easy, you can also purchase the new issue through our website by clicking here. This behind the scenes video was captured and created by the talented folks at Hoo Films.

Love what you see? Hint: stay tuned for Destination I Do’s summer cover (out May 10) for even more Golden Summer gorgeousness! For more information on the amazing wedding vendors who created this lovely photo shoot, please see below.
