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 Portland Bride & Groom, the month of January also welcomes another exciting moment: The release of our Winter/Spring issue!

Photographed by Lara Ferroni and styled by Bridal Bliss, the cover of our newest edition features a semi-naked vanilla Italian meringue buttercream and white butter-cake by Dream Cakes. A sprinkling of gold leaf, slender gold twigs, and a crimson sugar-paste bloom furnish a luxe finishing touch.

There’s a lot to love in this new issue, starting with the cover and ending with our Last Look page, which spotlights 10 ways to give your nuptials some seriously Portland-style flair. On the pages in between, there’s our elegant greenhouse-themed fashion featureinspiring real weddingsbold bouquetsa groom’s fashion guide, and the best local booze (plus food pairings!) for your shindig, from bubbly and wine to beer and cocktails to coffee and tea. 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!
