The new year always ushers in a list of resolutions, a dose of optimism, and a sense of renewal. But for those of us here at Seattle Met Bride & Groom, the month of January also welcomes another exciting moment: The release of our Winter/Spring issue!

Photographed by Kevin Focht, the cover of our newest edition features a bold, colorful bouquet and coordinating floral hair clip by Florarama Modern Design. Our model wears a tulle skirt, satin crop top, and lace blouse by Alexandra Grecco from The Dress Theory, and jewelry from JJ Caprices. The image is part of the issue's Frida Kahlo-inspired flowers feature—see more from the feature inside the mag!

There's a lot to love in this new issue, starting with the cover and ending with our Last Look page, which features cute ideas for including your pets in your wedding (floral dog collars, anyone?). On the pages in between, there's our elegant greenhouse-themed fashion feature, inspiring real weddings, decadent cakes, a groom's fashion guide, and festive cocktails paired with fancy jewels. And that's just a handful of features—there's so much more to help you plan your celebration and provide local inspiration and resources.

We hope you enjoy the issue!
