Wonder how we find our magazine cover? There is so much excitement that comes with choosing a cover image – especially one for a first issue. We knew we wanted it to say ‘west coast weddings’ at a glance. We were looking for the feeling of freedom along with some incredible scenery of the west coast and with a modern twist. Not too much to ask, right?!
So you can imagine our happiness when we ran across this favorite image by Rick Collins of LoveYouMePictures. It was just what we had in mind! The joy in the bride’s face while they drive towards the future, on a road winding through gorgeous scenery, with the blue sky above. We admit one of our fav features was the groom’s smirk in the mirror! Of course, the piece de resistance is the veil swirling around them.
So who are the cover couple? Amy & Alec married on Quadra Island at Alec’s family farm and currently reside in Australia. This shot was taken after some effort was made to get the car off and running! We appreciate their generosity in sharing this wedding moment with us for our first cover.
