Trust is the bedrock of every relationship. Without trust a team cannot succeed, a family will fold, and a marriage will fail. On the bright side, with trust teams overcome, families thrive, and marriages flourish. Trust is one of those things that is hard to put your hands around. It’s called trust because we often don’t know what the final outcome will be.

The team here at Wedding Essentials has to trust that each issue is going to all come together. There are days, weeks, and even months of preparation. There are photo shoots, articles, and wedding stories to be completed. We do this all in hope that we can publish a magazine that we are proud of and that serves you, the bride.

As another year comes to a close and we push forward into 2014 we want to extend a heartfelt thank you for placing your trust in us as a valued source in your wedding day preparation. In this winter issue we focus our lenses on three unique Honeymoon Suites in your own backyard. These locations are perfect for your wedding weekend guests or even a perfect Honeymoon suite for your wedding night.

Do you enjoy gathering ideas and trends from other recently wed couples? Well, we have just the thing for you. Real Style, Real Stories features thirteen beautiful weddings that have taken place right here in Northwest Indiana and Southwest Michigan. Have fun perusing these pages for wedding inspiration.

We wish you a happy marriage full of years of love and trust.

Have a blessed New Year!
