May 2017: Letter from Brooke

You’re engaged! As you twirl your beautiful new ring on your finger and think about your upcoming wedding, you may start to feel a bit overwhelmed. But, before you go there – you’ve come to the right place!

I was in your shoes five years ago. I know how stressful it can be to plan a wedding, but it’s also a magical time of dreaming, imagining the endless possibilities and seeing a lifetime of ideas come together. Many of my friends are planning their weddings now, and I see the sparkle in their eyes as they imagine walking down the aisle in their perfect dress, surrounded by the ones they love most.

With all that said, our team is so happy for you, and we are absolutely thrilled that you’ve chosen Forsyth Woman Engaged! as a resource for your wedding plans! I’m sure you’re using plenty of online resources, including Pinterest and other wedding websites; but there’s something about flipping through the pages of a magazine that is the classic way to find inspiration. It’s one of those activities that can be done in isolation, or it can be interactive and engaging between you and your mom, or you and your closest friends…pouring over pages, bookmarking them and “ooh-ing” and “ahh-ing.”

We’ve worked hard to create a magazine of inspiration, designed to help you as you create your own unique vision. Best of all, it’s local. All local weddings. All local vendors. All locally inspired. It’s not a matter of seeing something and realizing it’s too far to be within your grasp. The entire magazine is designed to celebrate the talent within our community.

It is our honor to showcase the talented professionals in and around Forsyth County, and as you call wedding vendors, please be sure to tell them you saw them in this issue of Forsyth Woman Engaged!

We are thrilled with how our cover turned out. A huge shout-out to our very talented photographer, Kyle Duncan Photography, for bringing our cover vision to life! Read all about our cover shoot and the local resources we used to create this beautiful magazine. Our Behind-the-Scenes credits and other pictures from the cover shoot are on pages 86-87.

Join us in celebrating the recently married and recently engaged couples on pages 92-95. And, let us know if we can celebrate your wedding or engagement! Email me at if you’d like your photo included in the November issue!

Until then, happy planning!

All my best,

Brooke Eagle
