Letter from the Editor – November 2017

Congratulations on your engagement! And if you are reading this and aren’t quite engaged yet, don’t worry, your secret is safe with us. It’s never too soon to get a bit of wedding inspiration!

As we’re putting this issue together, my husband and I just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary! We had professional pictures taken for the first time since our wedding and it was so much fun! A huge thank-you to Melinda Lamm with Photo Artistry by Melinda for capturing these for us.

With this publication only printing twice a year, every issue is so very unique and special. However, this issue is special on a whole different level for me because it features one of my very best friends on the cover. Kelsey + John have been close friends of ours for years and it is an absolute honor for us to feature Kelsey on our cover! This couple is all about having FUN and let me tell you, their wedding reflected that to the Nth degree. Jeff Scott with J. Darren Photography captured their beautiful Brookstown Inn wedding. Kelsey’s stunning Hayley Paige dress came from Nitsa’s and, OMG is it gorgeous or what?! You can see lots more photos from their day, as well as a list of the wonderful vendors that made it all possible, on pages 32-35.

We are proud to offer you this issue chock full of ideas for your wedding and if you have any feedback for us, please email me! Brooke@forsythmags.com We are always striving to grow and be the best possible resource for local brides. This magazine is possible and is free because of all of our fabulous advertisers. Please let them know that you saw them in Forsyth Woman Engaged! so that they know their advertising dollars are being put to good use.

All my best,



P.S. If you are recently engaged and would like one of your engagement photos featured in our next issue, email it to me!
