Believe it or not, it’s that time again! Yet another glossy-paged, inspiration-filled issue of Destination I Do has hit stands! Our Fall/Winter 2011 issue launched today and we’re as excited as ever to share with you what you’ll find between covers. Real-life bride Megan sets the tone on our cover as she’s ready to get honeymooning post-wedding. This is one of our favorite covers ever and was captured by the amazingly talented Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance.
For our Fashion Forward department we stuck close to home, capturing the urban city of Phoenix and the sandy sunsets of the Sonoran Desert. Our models brought elegance to a 100-year old ice house in downtown and sophistication to the Superstition Mountains of Arizona.
As always, the writers and editors at Destination I Do traveled far and wide to bring you the inside scoop on honeymoon hot spots, but also those romantic destinations you might not have thought of on your own. Contrast town and country in London & Paris or set sea from Seattle to the San Juan Islands.
Destination I Do Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Jennifer Stein, took a dream trip to Hawaii to bring readers the utmost in luxurious accommodations. For non-land lovers we’ve got some down-under trips which will take you diving off the coast of Honduras in Utila and snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
The Real Weddings section is always a crowd-pleaser, so we’ve gone above and beyond this issue to bring you the inside scoop on five couples destination weddings. Find out what they got for the money with budgets ranging from 10K to 150K.
This is all just a tiny taste of what you can find in our Fall/Winter 2011 issue. Want to pick one up? You can find Destination I Do at Barnes & Noble, select Borders and other fine book retailers worldwide. Don’t have one of these nearby – no problem! It’s easy to subscribe on our web site and the issue will be delivered to your door in about a week. If you love this issue as much as we do, then share the love and spread the word! As always, thanks for your continued support and love of all things Destination I Do.

Soho House Pool
The Soho House rooftop has fantastic views over the West Village and the Hudson River. Members and guests, as well as those staying in the hotel, can lie on loungers or sit at tables for drinks and breakfast, lunch and dinner daily during the summer months. Where else can you brunch poolside, next to an all-glass balcony and take in panoramic views of New York City? Or go for a dip in the pool, bathing in the sun while sipping a Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail? This refreshing drink made with fresh lemons, muddled strawberries and vodka has been a rooftop favorite since its opening - even Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte enjoyed it in a summer episode. The Soho House Rooftop truly is the ultimate summer destination in Manhattan.
