  • 10 Letter From the editor

    Letter from the editor...Growing up, I always fantasized about my fairytale wedding. My grandparents were the biggest influence on my life when it came to love. Their love was exactly what I pictured for my future. Throughout my life, Ive had many relationships, but I never felt that connection like I saw in my grandparents.

    It wasnt until I met this guy that I knew he was my love. Every time I saw him, I would be the happiest Ive been all day. Every time he would text or call me, I would instantly smile. Every time we spoke, he gave me butterflies. I knew I found the love of my life. Although we havent gotten married yet, we know we will one day.

    A wedding is a day that you get to show the love you have for your partner to your friends and family. My mission is to provide you with the knowledge you will need to give yourself and your partner the wedding your love deserves. Through experience and research, I want to make sure your wedding goes as smoothly as possible. I included many storied and articles on how to cut costs at your wedding and how to manage the planning process for the best possible results. I also include my own personal experience with my fami-lys and my wedding planning.

    Your day means just as much to me as it does you. Happy wedding planning everyone!

    With Love, Victoria Kloss

  • I started dating Hillary in December 2012 and within just 3 months I knew I was going to marry her...but we were both young, broke, job-less and still had over a year left of college. This gave me plenty of time to plan out the special proposal that she deserved. By summer 2014, we had both graduated and found jobs. Hil-lary and I had talked about celebrating our new milestones, and I figured that might be the perfect opportunity to propose. However, to make sure that Hil-lary would not think that she was in for a surprise, I had to plan out the night carefully. My brother, Matt, and I had brainstormed for months about how I could make such an important night seem only like a celebration of our recent accom-plishments. I figured that to throw Hillary off, I would suggest going out to the Olive Garden to celebrate with the gift card that I had received for grad-uation. While discussing our Olive Garden plans, Matt

    chimed in that he had won a gift certificate from work to the Nicollet Island Inn Restaurant in Minne-

    apolis that was about to expire, so he offered to trade certificates. Little did Hillary know that Matt and I had planned to switch the certifi-cates all along. Once at the Nicollet Island Inn Restaurant, Hillary and I were given a romantic booth overlooking the island. Throughout the meal the manager contin-ued to stop and check in on us. As we finished our meal, the manager told us that occasionally a com-plimentary horse drawn carriage ride is randomly given to couples at the restaurant and that we were the next couple to win. Hillary was fooled! Little did she know I had planned out the gift certificate trade and the free carriage ride with the manager. After dinner we went on our carriage ride down Nicollet Island and around the Stone Arch Bridge. When we arrived at the bridge, we got out to take our picture and walk around a little

    bit. I gave Hillary a gift that I had been carrying with

  • ALL the right ShotSThe images you dont want to miss out on!


    When telling a story through a single image think about including more than one person in the shot when you do this you introduce relationship into a photo which will conjure up all types of thoughts in the viewers of your shots.Having said that, sometimes carefully framing a second person OUT of your shot can add to the story youre trying to tell. Leaving evidence in the shot of a second unseen person can add questions to your viewers minds (ie a shot of a person alone at a table with two cups of coffee in front of them or a shot of someone talking animatedly to an unseen person). Unseen elements of a photo can add a lot.

  • Readers StoriescLASSic LoveThis would be a story that one of the readers sent in and was chosen for this spot. These stories consist of stories about each couples love story either about their wedding or the process before. Now I will be using dummy text to show where the words would stop and start again. Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Sepa-rated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean.

    A small river named Duden flows by their place and sup-plies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Gram-mar.

    A Love ABove ALL otherS

    true high SchooL SweetheArtSThe Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didnt listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the head-line of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane.

  • Its something most little girls dream about: the big white wedding, standing up in front of all of her fam-ily and friends with the love of your life and saying I do, dancing the night away and eating as much cake as possible. The typical day made extraordinary by following tradition after tradition. However, for some people the wedding process is a little less traditional.

    Mrs. Samantha Bullman (nee. Knowlton) always dreamed of a big white wedding. Fortunately, Sam will get what shes always dreamed of, but not in the traditional way she pictured. Sam met Senior Airman Andrew Bullman on September 28, 2013 at a get-to-gether at a mutual friends house. Throughout the night, there wasnt much contact between Andrew and me, but we did make some conversation here and there. When it was time for me to leave [Andrew] asked to walk me to my car, Sam said, The next day we became Facebook friends and through that we exchanged phone numbers.

    Through their communication, Sam learned about Andrews career. I never imagined dating a soldier. It wasnt a life I ever pictured for myself, but it was something I knew I could handle. Sam and Andrew began officially dating on October 27, 2013. For me, it wasnt love at first sight but I was going through a lot when we met. Andrew was incredibly patient with me. Thats how I knew I loved him.

    In August 2014, Sam and Andrew took the next step in their relationship. We got a cute little one bed-

    room apartment. I brought my cat and we adopted a german shepherd puppy. We had our family, but as things became more serious I began to worry and make plans for if Andrew were to get deployed; what would that mean for me and for us. Would I be able to live like this for the rest of my life, in constant worry? I can and I do, because he makes it worth it. I couldnt imagine moving away from my family and friends to any other part of the world, but I would do it for him. In July of 2015, Sams planning for the future was forced up a notc
