Letter From the Editor Spring/Summer 2019

As we send this issue off to the printer, my best friend of 15+ years is preparing to walk down the aisle, and I’m in the midst of writing my Maid of Honor toast (and attempting to keep the embarrassing yet hilarious high school stories to a minimum). It brings me so much joy to be a part of her and her fiancé’s wedding – they have a mutual love and respect for one another that I admire so much. And, I’m thrilled at the fact that they chose to get married here in Winston-Salem so that I could show off all of the amazingly talented local vendors we have! Congratulations Jill and Eric, I love you both so much!

While reviewing all of the amazing wedding content in this issue, I am reminded of God’s infinite love for each of us. While you are in the midst of all of the wedding planning craziness – don’t ever forget the importance of putting God at the foundation of your marriage. Maren Morris says it best in one of her new songs, “…the house don’t fall when the bones are good.”

We have an extra special article in this issue that is about the five love languages. This article is a must-read whether or not you’ve read Dr. Gary Chapman’s internationally known book.

As always, we have featured several stunning local weddings in this issue and hope they inspire you with ideas and vendors for your big day!

Finally, be sure to look through the celebration photos of recently engaged and recently married couples! I wouldn’t be surprised if you see a couple or two that you know!

Our team has put so much hard work into making this issue a valuable resource for planning a wedding here in Forsyth County and surrounding areas. We hope you’ll make a point to tell our advertising partners that you saw them in FW Engaged. Their support makes this magazine possible.

I love hearing from our readers! If you have any feedback, just want to say “hello” or would like your wedding to be considered for a future issue, email me at brooke@forsythmags.com.

All my best,
