YWD (Your Wedding Day) Magazine - So Excited!
One of our favorite things about appearing in national magazines is receiving the advance copy before it hits the stores. It's like being let in on a secret, and absolutely nothing feels better than opening the issue for the first time and finding your "section." Your Wedding Day Magazine, also known as YWD is one of the top wedding fashion magazines in the country. Each issue is so amazingly gorgeous, from the editorial content to the bridal fashions, the advertisements, even the high quality of the paper feels good in your hands. There are so many wedding magazines we can't keep up with all of them, but the gems in the mix really do stand out, and this is definitely one of them.
Last October Rick made a very special cake for a photo shoot with YWD Magazine. We're not revealing the cake until the magazine is officially out, which should be anyday now, but our feature is under their Event Design section and is called "New Eclectic Hawaii". We got to work with some of our favorite vendors on the shoot including Finishing Touch, Yvonne Design, Les Saisons, blufotographica, and Emi Ink. We were pleased with the outcome of the shoot and enjoyed collaborating with all the vendors involved. Doing a shoot for a magazine is satisfaction enough, but they kept returning to us for other sections of the magazine, and that truly sent us over the top! I forget exactly how we celebrated being one of their featured companies for their "In The Spotlight" section (shown above) but we were ecstatic! It was an honor to be in the company of some of the best in the industry, and it's always fun to see the cakes in print. We also have a Real Wedding in the magazine, and are included in their "Destination Hot Spots" section. It's all very exciting and will seem even more real once the issue comes out. If you are a bride, definitely look for this magazine -- it's a beauty!
til next time, Aloha!
