It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time again. Yet another beautiful issue of Destination I Do Magazine hits stands today.

We strive to bring equal parts inspiration and information to every issue and we think we hit the nail on the head with our latest edition.
For our Fashion Forward department there are two gorgeous photo shoots each with its own style and pizzazz. If a tropical wedding is your aim or if it’s down-home vintage all the way, look to this issue’s Fashion Forward for ideas on dresses, décor and details. Our Spring Cover is a shot from our Mt. Hood, Oregon Fashion Forward Shoot. Behind the lens was the marvelously talented Phyllis Lane who captured this shot on Lost Lake in Hood River.
So, what else does this issue have to offer? As always, the writers at Destination I Do traveled far and wide to some of the romantic destination wedding and honeymoon locales across the globe. The uber-fab Anti-Bride gives readers the inside scoop on the original “City of Love” – Paris and the emerald isle of Ireland. One writer traveled to Indonesia for his honeymoon and discovered a surfer’s paradise.
Destination I Do Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Jennifer Stein, took a whirlwind trip through Sweden and discovered Scandinavian love nests that are too good to pass up. I, Courtney Cox, took a trip to Hawaii that was an absolute delight and fit for any honeymooner or destination wedding couple. There are many other destinations to discover amongst the colorful, glossy pages.
Often our readers’ favorite department is the Real-Life Weddings and frankly we can’t blame them. The weddings in this issue continue to take it to the next level with personalization and unique style. There are some love stories here that will melt your heart and images that will take your breath away. From a chateau in France to the rolling hills of Columbia – there’s a wedding here that will inspire you in planning your own destination wedding.
